About Kate

I am a married, 28 year old woman working full time as an actuary. My husband and I just moved to Dublin from Cape Town, South Africa. I grew up surrounded by pet dogs, especially Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Staffordshire bull terriers, and miniature dachshunds. I've been living in apartments since moving out of my mom's house, but while unable to get a dog of my own I've always been able to shower my love on my mom's dogs. Since moving to Dublin, I (half) joke that I miss my mom's dogs more than I miss her. 

I'm on this app genuinely just looking to walk, play with, care for, and love some dogs until I can get one of my own. I'm not allowed dogs in my apartment, but I'm happy to house and/or pet sit. If the booking includes a weekday, I will need a space and WiFi to work remotely. 

I am currently based in Sandymount and use public transport. 

I have experience administering oral medication to a Ridgeback, but no formal training. 

I prefer dogs and have more experience with dogs, but I don't mind cats if you also have cats. My experience is mostly informal, including pet sitting for friends and family and now a few months here on Pawshake. In addition to the breeds listed above, I've also had experience with my in-laws' Belgian Malinois.

Kate is an excellent dogsitter. She kept the family regularly updated with videos and pictures. She ensured Rolo was well looked after with plenty of play, walks and a few treats.

Kate really did an amazing job! it was the first time we had someone dog sitting and house sitting, and we felt comfortable and at ease at all times. She sent us little updates from our dog and was always very caring. definitely recommend and will book her again :)
