ABOUT THE PET NANNIES
Dear Pet Parent,
We understand how difficult and heart wrenching it is leaving your pets at home alone, whether just for the day or for a few weeks. When you have to leave your pet for whatever reason, we want you to have complete peace of mind that they are being well cared for in the stress free environment that is their own home. We will go above and beyond to remove the stress of leaving your pet behind when you can't be there.
You have already chosen the best and kindest option
for your pet by choosing professional in-home care.
“Many veterinarians and pet experts believe that keeping pets in their familiar surroundings helps to alleviate the stress imposed when their owners have to leave home. Pets are then also able to maintain their diet and exercise routine, and enjoy the personal attention provided by a pet sitter. This also eliminates the trauma of being transported and minimises their exposure to illnesses of other animals.”
Colleen Sedgewick - The Pet Nanny Coach
The Pet Nannies business began in early 2017 from my love of animals and a desire work with them. In my research I found my passion, to lift the standards of pet care services in New Zealand. When you first book with The Pet Nannies you will see from the beginning that we are professional, caring, flexible and safety focussed, from the first contact to the completion of services. Our focus is being worthy of your trust and giving you the actual peace of mind that you are paying us for.
In a market that is flooded with 'cowboys', I have put my heart and soul into my mission of creating a pet care service that provides top quality pet care and true peace of mind to South Auckland Pet Parents.
Using specialised software, procedures, fabulous staff and being covered by liability insurance to ensure the safety of pets, staff and home, we can provide owners true peace of mind.
What types of animals do we care for?
The Pet Nannies are happy to care for ALL kinds of pets, large and small, young and old, in good or bad health. Medications and insulin shots are fine with us, post surgery your pet may need more attention than usual, and we know how difficult it is to get away when you have an elderly or diabetic pet. We are able to take over from you, update you with pictures, video and messaging and give you that peace of mind you need. We even have a Fur-babysitting service if you only need to pop out for a few hours.
How do we provide True Peace of Mind?
One thing that is crucial is that there are foolproof systems in place to stop unacceptable errors. I have spent time pouring through customer feedback, complaints from other pet care businesses and facebook groups and forums, and learning from them, to ensure The Pet Nannies Ltd has all bases covered when it comes to the care and safety of your pets and also my employees.
Our Pet Nannies are dedicated employees, not independent contractors
Pet Nannies all have Pet First Aid knowledge
All staff have had a police background check
Pet Nannies do not wear uniforms which may alert people to your absence.
Our software helps us to keep track of our carers and gives them all the information needed to do their job, tasks to check off, including security of your home, right on their smart phone. It also ensures no pet or task is ever forgotten!
Our Pet Nannies will send detailed visit reports include 'GPS Tracker' maps about each visit so you can see exactly the route your dog walker took, where and when the Pet Nanny arrived and left your home, photos and a list of tasks performed.
Your home will be respected and secure with our team, who understand the immense trust you have placed with us when you hand us a key. Not only are we watching your pet but we are also actively watching over the security of your home
We will notified if our sitter hasn't signed in at your home on time and also if they haven't signed out when they should. This is for your pets safety and for our sitters.
We charge by time, not per animal. Each animal needs a minimum amount of time spent on them individually. We don't rush through a visit to fit in more animals.
The time to Pet software provides you with a convenient online interactive portal and mobile application for our clients to message us directly, book pet care, view their personal service calendar, update their billing information & pay for services.
We also do not use car advertising on our pet carers’ cars, which may alert people to your absence. We only have a Pet Taxi with advertising on it. This is the main business car and is used for any Long distance Pet Taxi work and can be used for large group dog outings.
The complimentary Meet & Greet meeting ensures everyone is safe, introduced, completely informed and in agreement about the services provided. These meetings will usually be attended by your sitter and a back up sitter, who will step in if your main sitter can't cover your booking. This means you will never have a stranger in your home.
About The Meet & Greet
This visit is compulsory before the start of a client's first ever booking with The Pet Nannies. It is attended by your allocated Pet Carer and a Pet Nannies Manager, who will be the carers back up if ever your carer cannot attend a visit. The reason for this is to ensure you always know who is visiting your pets.
The Meet & Greet is beneficial for many reasons and it is free!
It allows our clients and their pet/s to get to know us and their allocated carer.
The client has a chance to discuss their service choices and get questions answered face to face.
Our carer can spend time with your pet, ensure it is a good match and also ask questions.
It is the best way for the client to communicate and demonstrate all the information about the pet/s sit e.g. the pet's routines, food storage, where the leashes are kept, toileting habits and areas the pet is not allowed etc.
If possible we will give the pet/s a brief medical check over so that we have a benchmark to go by should the pet’s state change while under our care, and also to ensure there are no obvious health issues before the client leaves home.
We can all brainstorm any issues that arise from the meeting.
It is the best way for the client to communicate and demonstrate all the information about their home we need to know, as we are also providing a home security service when we visit.
We will test entry methods and alarm codes and decide on key management. We can assess any safety issues for our sitter

All of our sitters are residents of South Auckland.
I am an ex-Cardiac Radiographer Specialist and an event that happened late 2014 saw me leave my 24yr career. I have spent years looking for the animal care profession that was right for me. I have a good sense of humour, I’m honest and a hopeless empath, especially when it comes to animals.
I have been the proud owner of budgies, canaries, guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, cats and a short stint with a Greyhound. I now have just one cat. I say ‘just’ one as, if I had the choice, there would be many, many more pets here. This is why I want to care for yours, to stop me from becoming a pet hoarder!
In 2015 I did a Pet Sitting Business Course which set me on this path. I then trained in Feline Psychology and Training, Canine and Feline Massage & Canine Psychology and Training. I have recently been studying Business and Marketing and loving that too.
I am the hub of the business and I’m always available to support clients and staff online or by phone. I remotely supervise all my staff & give support when needed. We work as a team so we always have backup, with me being Plan C!
The Pet Nannies are super excited to bring you some fabulous NEW ZEALAND MADE pet stuff that will boost the health of your cat and dog. We will be adding to the New Zealand made range of products as we discover new treasures. Lots of Pet Products that we have chosen, please check them out!
You can trust the Nannies to take care of you and yours
with kindness and care.
