PLEASE NOTE: I have a full time office job! But I WFH most days. Hi! My name is Bailey and I come from Northern Canada, a place where nearly every family has a pet and treats them like a family member. I’ve lived in Hong Kong for over three years, and work full time as a copywriter in Quarry Bay and reside in Sai Ying Pun area. Ever since I was a young girl I have always been surrounded by dogs – both big and small, purebreds and rescues. As a child we had a chocolate lab and cockerspaniel. Then into adulthood cats from college roommates and (another) rescue dog at home. Since moving to Asia there has been a void in my heart, because my apartment has little space for a dog or cat of my own. I love animals – each time I see a dog walking past on the street it’s like seeing a pup for the very first time all over again. I try to volunteer as much as possible at the dog shelters in the New Territories. I would like to help out as much as I can with other people’s pets and ensure them a safe and playful sitter. Pets are our family and I want to help keep yours in good hands, and spoil them with love and care.
A summary of my services: walks are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you require more than 3 hours of sitting I will charge for a full day/overnight service. I have experience with all sizes of dogs, and have petsit for both dogs and cats with disabilities, special needs and seperation anxiety.
We left our anxious mini schnauzer with Bailey who took great care of her. She has great understanding and empathy towards anxious dogs which was really comforting for us in leaving her. Our dog Isla settled very well with Bailey and we’re more than happy with her service!
Bailey was very patient with my dog, who is extremely nervous around new people and needs to be able to take her time to feel comfortable around them. Bailey allowed her time to bond in a way that she felt confident enough around her in order to et to the stage to let her pet her. I received photo's and videos and updates on her progress and was confident that the time spent with my dog was quality time.
As mentioned, I have been around dogs all of my life both big and small. I am patient and skilled at walking dogs especially in a tense city like Hong Kong where there are many people afraid of dogs. Excrement does not frighten me, making me an ideal person for helping with tidying up. I listen to pets and make sure their needs are met, such as always having a bowl of water available and listening for when the bathroom walk calls!
When it comes to cats, I never try to force affection on them and take a 'let them come to me' approach. I've administered eye drops and oral medication in the past.
