rosie lps 4

Name: Rosie
Age: 23
Occupation: Pet attendant
Hometown: Originally from Wellington, New Zealand. Now, Melbourne, Victoria.

Why do you love pets?
Because they love us back! When you can see how much an animal loves you and loves the extra care you give it – it makes you happy! There’s no reward other than that good feeling of looking after a living creature who would struggle on their own.

Favourite activity when you’re with a pet?
The cat I live with loves to snuggle, roll around in the sun on the balcony and plays fetch with pieces of string!

Any advice for travellers who are leaving their pets at home?
Make sure the sitter gets to meet the pet beforehand! It’ll make the adjustment a little easier for the pet. Maybe the pet can have a piece of your clothing or something with them (that would smell like the owner) in their bed or crate so they can feel a bit more comfortable while the owner is away.

Must see pet movie?
I always loved The Lady and The Tramp and The Aristocats.

The three words that best describe you?
Friendly, colourful, adventurous.

Top tips for leaving your pet while you take a holiday.

We know that leaving your pet when you go away can be traumatic, maybe more so for you then for them. At Lovelly Pet Sitters, we try to ease that discomfort by keeping your pets environment and routine as close to normal as possible.

Treats, toys, your scent left on clothing and furniture can all help pets to feel comfortable in their home with a new visitor coming to care for them.

We’ve asked some of our lovelly sitters for their top tips on things that owners can do when leaving their pets with a sitter while they are on holidays, here’s what they had to say!

Make sure someone will take the time to visit them and give them some human interaction. Also, plenty of toys and treats to help them through missing you.
– Victoria M

Always leave plenty of treats in the cupboard! (and maybe even some for the petsitter ;))
– Rhi T

Pets are happiest when they stick to their usual routine, so leave clear instructions for your house-sitter about how to minimise disruptions for your pets.
– Ninya M

Leave them their favourite treat and always leave them enough food! Pre packaged portions is really helpful for us.
– Mathew Q

img_2079
As much as some kennels/ catteries have improved, I believe that it is always best to reduce your fur/feather-child’s stress and anxiety by leaving them in their natural environment and having a pet sitter to try and maintain their regular routine. Fill your pet-sitter in on the routine and what your animal loves and if your pet is anxious then have the pet-sitter come around to meet them whilst you’re there first. Leave a piece of clothing with your scent on it so they know that you’re coming back and lastly, to support YOU, ask your pet-sitter to send photos or updates if you want so that you can see your pet relaxed and enjoying their own environment as usual.

What does your business do?
I teach people to tune into animal language. Bring both human and animal on the same wave length, so they experience deep connections and pure happiness…and… together they are well behaved!

I provide one-on-one sessions, group workshops and online facilitation of healing, communicating with animals and personal coaching.

What’s your passion?
Working with animals and people; bringing them closer together generating harmony and love around the world, unconditionally.

me-and-ned_july2016

What do you love most about running your business?
Meeting new people, freedom and doing thing the way I feel is the best way, taking into consideration suggestions from other who have been there before. It is a learning every day and I am loving it.

Tell us, with an anecdote, why your business has changed your life?
My business changed my life in a way that I wouldn’t have met so many different people and have found people who are on my page. I come from a corporate industry working with high level executives, who not always understood my philosophy, values and what I am here to do.  Now that I have built my ‘tribe’ it is so much more fun and easy to do what I love doing.

me-and-franklin-april-2014

How do you manage a work/life balance?
It is challenging, there is no doubt about that, as I would love to be able to work 80 hours on my business, but I have a social life, need to look after ME and also have my family and dogs to consider. I use Google Apps for Work to manage all my business admin, including scheduling and have a coach who is keeping me accountable for what I do as well as challenges me on what I feel/fear/believe and accomplish.

Your favourite inspiration quotes?
“I am in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing and everything  is OK”

“It’s not enough to be good at what you do, you must be great at who you are”

The four words that best describe your business?
Vibrant, unique, exciting and soulful.
