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 happy to travel to Northern NSW/Lower QLD and to discuss travel to other locations …
I'm currently taking some time out whilst I decide where to relocate myself to .... you may perceive overlapping availability dates - whilst Covid is disrupting everything , I’m assisting friends and family on their properties between bookings and therefore have some degree of flexibility with my schedule!
I have extensive experience with preparing/maintaining holiday accommodation as well as caring for a wide range of animals - cats and dogs, aquariums, chickens, ducks, geese, cattle and goats. I'm comfortable with administering any medications/grooming/special dietary needs and also with guardian animals - alpacas, donkeys and Maremmas etc.
With me in attendance, your property will be kept well maintained and secure and your animals well cared for - my published reviews are here but feel free to request my list of referees to verify any details.
I'm a non-smoker and non-drinker - I’m clean, quiet,organised, easy-going, respectful and adaptable.
My background is in Workplace Training and Assessment - Holistic Healthcare/Natural Therapies and Hospitality (restaurant management/holiday accommodation).
I've also worked in Aged Care and Diversional therapy.
I diversified into animal studies at TAFE and combine a holistic approach (animal communication and massage/homeopathy and animal nutrition) with commonsense and practicality.
In the past I've been active as a volunteer wildlife carer with WIRES and my local RSPCA shelter.
I enjoy gardening (experienced with organic and bio-dynamic principles, natural pest control and companion planting).
I can operate ride-on mowers, pumps and generators ... I can read and follow instructions for other devices (or work it out with the help of google).
I travel with my English Toy Terrier Ella (I do understand that this might be an issue for some people but can provide references for her if required).
Ella was brought up with older dogs, cats and poultry (so she doesn't chase/harass or make a nuisance of herself). She has no issues with other dogs/cats - makes friends fast With other animals and is fully house - trained to use a cat door/ask to go outside.
I've been tagged "the dog whisperer" but in all honesty I believe it's the combo with Ella that makes the difference in interaction with the animals we’ve looked after.
I am happy to provide a list of referees for any/all of the above and I have a current National Police check certificate. I will provide these documents on request!
Thank you for reading and feel free to contact me ...
