Experience Looking After Pets
Throughout my life I have cared for my own pets, including dogs, chickens and small birds.
I have recently commenced studies in Canine Behaviour and Nutrition for Companion Animals.
In 2006, I received a "Certificate of Attendance for Basic Instruction in Positive Handling Techniques for Dogs" with the Animal Welfare League, South Australia.
I have been a volunteer at the Maryborough Animal Refuge since May 2017 and currently attend 2 days a week for dog walking. Prior to moving to Queensland, I was also a volunteer canine calmer/dog walker with the Animal Welfare League, South Australia for ten years.
Throughout my volunteer work, I have interacted with a variety of dogs and particularly enjoy the working dog breeds. My own dogs include a male Australian Cattle Dog and a female Koolie X.

Katie is a lovely person and our dogs love her to bits! We will definitely be asking her to look after them again. The whole experience was stress free for us and for the dogs. Katie sent us lovely messages and photos to keep us up to date, which was fantastic. We definitely recommend her.
Katie was amazing. Photo updates and happy kittens when I returned.
Thanks again to Katie. I'd hate to say it but I think Blue dog actually looks forward to my away trips as he knows Katie will be around. Another great job, smooth and without fault.
Cannot thank Katie enough !
Looked after our Blue dog for an 8day stretch, The service again was tops. With daily updates, I could see he was enjoying himself, plenty of walks and ball play. Certainly put my mind at ease knowing he was safe, fed, and happy. Makes going away so easy.
Katie recently looked after my 2 dogs Jess and Blue. It was her first introduction to my 'kids' and my first time using a pet sitter. Needless to say I was nervous, but even with all my dogs querky habits Katie did an excellent job, and kept me updated every day with messages and photos. With feeding, walks, cuddles and plays I'm sure Jess and Blue will be looking forward to Katie's return, and I am so happy knowing they are in good hands. Thanks Katie, you're a gem.
