More information about this house sitterThanks for looking at my profile ...
I'm David - and I'm based usually between the Blue Mountains and the Mid North Coast NSW but I'm happy to travel to Northern NSW/Lower QLD areas.
I'm currently taking some (much needed) time out whilst I decide where to relocate myself to ....
I'm a non-smoker and non-drinker (but I do have an engaging and sparkling personality).
I pride myself on being clean, honest and reliable. I'm organised, easy-going and adaptable - an optimist not a pessimist!
My background is in Holistic Healthcare and Natural Therapies with extensive Hospitality experience (restaurant management as well as managing and maintaining holiday accommodation).
I've also worked in Aged Care and Diversional therapy - so I'm quite happy to keep an eye on your older humans too - being helpful without being intrusive!
I diversified into animal studies at TAFE as well as
studying other holistic approaches (animal communication and massage/homeopathy and animal nutrition).
In the past I've been active as a volunteer with WIRES and my local RSPCA shelter - doing facility maintenance and staff catering as well as some routine animal care. I'm comfortable with administering any needed medications/grooming/special dietary needs.
I have hands on experience with a wide range of animals - aquarium fish, chickens, ducks, geese, goats, cats and dogs - some experience with sheep, horses and cattle.
I am however very focused on providing all round balanced animal care - both exercise and healthy balanced nutrition (feeding personalised and home-made as much as possible as the foundation for good health).
I enjoy gardening (long experienced with bio-dynamic principles, natural pest control and companion planting) so I'm more than happy to tend to your garden. I can operate a ride-on mowers, pumps and generators ... I can read and follow instructions.
I do travel with my English Toy Terrier Ella ( I do understand that this might be an issue for some people and can provide references for her if required). My Ella is an incredible little animal - brought up with cats and poultry (so she doesn't chase/harass), has no issues with other dogs/cats - makes friends fast and is house -trained to use a cat door/asks to go outside. I've been tagged "the dog whisperer" but in all honesty I believe it's little Miss Ella who seems to bring about the behavioural changes.
I am happy to provide a list of referees for any/all of the above and have a current National Police check certificate. I will provide these on request!
