About Gemma

Hello, my name is Gemma and I'm a certified animal lover!

I had the pleasure of working at The HBSPCA in the animal hospital before deciding to venture down a new career path, so I'm now a college student once again! I absolutely loved my job there and I learned so much working in that environment. My passion and dedication for animals is still just as strong, maybe even stronger, and they will always be a big part of my life!

I currently have two cats, Athena and Aura. Although my cats adore humans, they're a little shy with other animals so I wouldn't be able to offer cat sitting services at my home but I'm MORE than happy to check in on your kitty's in the comfort of their own home.

I have dog walking experience with all shapes and sizes but I'll be honest, it's been a while since I've interacted with the larger breeds. I'm excited to be reacquainted with the big, friendly ones again. I've previously worked with Mastiffs, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Poodles, Retrievers and other mixed breeds.

I'm open to working with any breed of any size, as long as it's the right fit for both of us :)

I live in the up-and-coming North End of Hamilton, close to a few different parks and the beautiful waterfront. My days are flexible, I am available every day past 12 noon. I aim to spend at least 30 minutes on each dog walk and 30 minutes on my home visits. I will make playtime a big priority with your pets, making sure they are fed and watered every day and just giving them the human interaction that I'm sure they will be missing from you.

I like to send pictures and updates of your companions while you are away - I know it gives me peace of mind seeing my girls are happy and safe while I’m on my travels.

I'm happy to offer whatever you need to make you feel comfortable with me looking after your pet(s), especially on home visits. I will provide the same amount of love and care for your pet as I do my own.

If you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them. I look forward to meeting you and your furry friend :)

I'm so happy that Gemma accepted our booking to house-sit for our cat this past weekend. She sent frequent updates while I was on my trip and was always quick to respond to any of my questions and concerns.

It's very clear that she loves animals and will care for other people's pets as her own.

I would 100% recommend Gemma to other pet owners looking for a sitter!
