About Dipakshi

I am an 18-year-old student interested in helping to take care of your pets. Growing up in a no-pet household meant I had to reach out for alternatives to spend time with dogs and cats

  • I spent every summer at my cousin's house where I took care of their pet chihuahua
  • As I grew older I undertook greater responsibilities volunteering at a dog shelter where I interacted with larger dogs and took part in an adoption fair

  • Volunteered at a cat shelter, Love Kuching, for two years. There, I took care of kittens, sick cats, and even feral cats.
  • Volunteered at Riding for the Disabled Association, RDA, to care for horses.
  • My motivation for pet sitting is to spend as much time as I can with pets and caring for them before I start University. This will be a great summer job as I will further my studies in Animal Science in September.

    • My services:

    • I offer dog walking and home visits
    • Depending on the breed my dog walks take 30 mins to an hour

  • House visits range from 20 to 40 mins
  • I have no restrictions on pet size or age.
  • Currently, I am not employed
  • I am available for Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays
  • In June 2021, I will have a more flexible schedule as I will be completed with my final exams
  • Dipakshi's services

    Specific Skills

    I speak English
    < 5 years of experience

    I am going to graduate from high school/secondary school in June 2021. Then I will be going to university to study Animal Science or Zoology.

    My time at Love Kuching gave me the necessary skills to take care of pets. For the first few weeks, I was assigned cleaning duties (changing the litter, mopping the floor, doing the dishes). Then I progressed to more difficult tasks of organizing the food and medication. I learned how to give them pills, give them supplements in their food, change their wound dressing, give an IV drip, treat cats with FIV, and much more.
