About Isabella Kenton-Dau

Dog Walker and Pet Sitter

Hi I’m Isabella!

Nice to meet you 🙂

My name is Isabella and I am an absolute animal lover! I grew up on a lifestyle block caring for chickens, ducks, sheep, horses, cats and even once helped bottle-raise a pet lamb! I am a firm believer that all animals no matter the size or species have feelings just as we humans do, and so deserve to be treated with love and respect at all times.

Like many kiwis, I have a great love for the outdoors and in my spare time I’m often out mountain biking/running on the awesome trails the Port hills has to offer, or catching waves down at the beach. Having the opportunity to take the dogs out for adventures is always a highlight of my day. It warms my heart to see the dogs out enjoying the sunshine – knowing that you’ve contributed to them having a good day is a very rewarding feeling!

Looking forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

About Isabella

I’m thrilled to introduce Isabella, the very first member of the VIPets team! Isabella started caring for furry members of the VIPets family in January of 2020.

Isabella grew up on a lifestyle block where she cared for many different varieties of our furry and feathered friends. She has been walking dogs in the Mt Pleasant and surrounding areas for VIPets since the beginning of 2020. She is amazing with the doggies she takes out and they love her so much in return.

Isabella has always had her own horse and has worked closely with the Heathcote Riding School caring for horses. She is comfortable around horses and has a lifetime of experience caring for them. She is happy to care for horses for you if the need arises.

In her spare time Isabella enjoys painting and is a very talented artist. Isabella paints portraits of her favourite creatures and has had her work exhibited in several Christchurch galleries. Together with her sister Demeter she is having an exhibition soon where a portion of the proceeds is going to Dogwatch, a charity the sisters have supported for many years. Isabella would be happy to paint your furry friend for you and takes private commissions to do so.

Isabella is also an exceptional athlete, frequently competing in (and winning!) 10km races for her age group. She has always been active, recently completing a bike tour of the South Island with her sister Demeter. She is happy to take doggies out for long runs if your furry friend has a lot of energy!

I’m looking forward to you meeting Isabella. Feel free to request her personally to look after your furry friends while you are away!
