Hello, my name is Erin. I'm from South Africa and have had pets my entire life, they have always been an extension of our family. I've not only taken care of dogs and cats but have also owned birds and hamsters. I'm the type of person who loves to stop and say hi to pets that are walking with their owners and always appreciate it when the owners allow me to pet their animals. I really am an absolute animal lover but since moving to Asia I haven't been able to own a pet due to my apartment's restrictions and I genuinely miss having a fur baby to take care of. I hope that through Pawshake I'll be able to love and take care of some adorable pets.
I am a kindergarten teacher and as such do have set hours that I have to be at work but will be available more during weekends. During summer I will be available to spend at least 6hours at the pet owner's home (excluding sleep time), during the week while school is not on vacation I will be able to be there from around 6pm until 7:30am.
I am well versed in the professional and loving care of pets. As a student in university I worked part-time as a receptionist at a vet's office. I was there for over 3 years and learned a lot. I am understanding towards pets needs as well as keeping a level-head in any situation. I am comfortable with giving medication that your pet may need (ensuring that full medication instructions are provided as well as the pet's veterinary clinic number and doctor's name).
Services offered: If making house visits it will be in the evenings during the week (from 6pm onwards) because of my work schedule but weekends I'm available any time from 10am onwards. Any walking services will also be late in the afternoon or early evening (extended hours available once summer holidays start) and walks usually last between 45min to 1hour. If you require more than 4 hours of sitting I will charge for a full day/overnight service.
It was great having Erin as our dog sitter! It was easy to communicate with her and she listened to the minor details that we raised during the initial meet & greet to make our dogs more at ease during her stay. This is important to us as our one dog has major anxiety.
I immediately picked up on her compassion towards animals and this made me feel comfortable in leaving our pets in her care.
I would highly recommend Erin to anyone wanting to use her Petbacker services.
Erin looked after our two dachshunds for one night. She arrived on time and was happy to listen and take in all of our speil about how to take care of the doggies. The dogs took to her immediately and had a great time in her care!
Erin had great communication throughout, keeping us informed about how they were getting on and sending us videos/photos. She had a great energy and was very warm and friendly which made us feel right at ease. Erin left our apartment clean and tidy :)
As a university student I worked as a receptionist at a veterinary clinic in Johannesburg, South Africa. Reference will be given upon request.
