My name is Tia and I have been working for Pet Friends as a pet carer and dog walker since 2010.
I have always owned dogs and cats since I can remember. We used to gather strays or hurt animals and bring them home to keep. When I was about eight my parents bought a farm and we owned horses and sheep. Our neighbours also had ferrets which I helped feed. I have also taken care of birds, rabbits and guinea pigs for my relatives.
I have been lucky enough to also have dogs and cats who have had babies and so have been experienced in looking after the animals before and after birth.
I feel like I have a natural affinity with all animals and often I am able to befriend nervous or aggressive pets or pets who are usually wary of new people.
I love my job as a pet carer and dog walker. I feel very lucky I get paid to do such a fun job. The only downside I have noticed is I miss the pets I look after when I finish the job 😉
If you live in the surrounding suburbs of Wembley I would love the opportunity to get to know and take care of your pets!
