About Alisha

Thank you for considering me as a pet sitter for your lovely pets! I am a passionate animal lover with two cats of my own and I would love to have the opportunity to get to know even more pets here in Victoria. As a pet owner I know how important it is to find someone you trust to take care of your fur babies while you are away so as a pet sitter I always promise detailed communication, reliable service, and a caring and loving environment for you pets. 

At this time I am only able to pet sit at your own home as my older cat Indie does find new introductions to be quite stressful. However I am more than happy to travel to your home to spend some quality time with your pet while you are away or take your dogs for additional walks. I am available for dog walks as well as once a day home visits. I am unfortunately not available for twice a day visits during the school year as I am a teacher making morning visits during the school day not possible. As such all once a day home visits will need to be in the afternoon/evening.

Home visits are half an hour long and involve feeding, playing and generally spending time with your pet as well as outside time in your yard for a dog and litter box clean for a cat. I am also comfortable with small animals (rodents, birds, fish etc.) as I currently have fish myself and have had pet rats in the past. As part of a home visit I am happy to water a few plants and send photos of each pet along with a short update of how they are doing. Dog walks are also half an hour however we can absolutely book longer sessions.

As mentioned above I do have cats currently: Indie is 13 and is a grumpy but very loving kitty, Milo is a sweet 2 year old youngster with lots of energy. I have experience with small animals and grew up in a household with many dogs and cats. I have some dog training experience and would be happy to continue working on specific training skills with your dog while you are away or while we are out on a walk. 

I always do a meet and greet prior to committing to a booking just to make sure that your pets and I are a good fit. While I do take some bookings further from my home, I do prioritize bookings I can walk/transit to. However, I do have a car available for emergency purposes and my partner would be on call to bring the car to me should your pet need a vet visit.

Alisha took great care of my cat while I was away for a work trip. She sent daily pictures and updates with relevant questions concerning my kitty's wellbeing. I highly recommend Ashley and will definitely hire her again.

Alisha was fantastic and took great care of our cat. We'd be happy to book her again next time.

Familiar with dog training techniques
As a youth I spent quite a lot of time volunteering for my local animal shelter. This certainly jump started my passion for rescue pets and solidified the importance of being able to work with any behavioural pieces a pet might come with. Both my current cats are rescues from the SPCA and my older cat in particular had some behavioural and trust challenges that we have been able to work through really well. She has certainly come out of her shell and is incredibly trusting now. I also have experience with behavioural challenges with dogs including anxiety and reactivity towards other dogs and people. Using positive reinforcement training along with a healthy dose of patience, I have been able to successfully work on diminishing anxiety in my family dog as well as work to address reactivity on walks.
