Meet the team

Peter and Karen Scheirlinck  - Owners

Peter and Karen took over Walkies in 2017, and are proud to be continuing a strong 15 year heritage of service to Auckland pet owners.

We each grew up cherishing pets, and have continued this tradition with our now grown children - adopting puppies and kittens from the SPCA and most recently welcoming a Wheaten Terrier into our lives. We believe there's something special about a home with a pet, a warmth and a sense of family - from the excited greeting of a young animal to the intuition and companionship of a older dog or cat.

We're proud to lead the Walkies team of pet care professionals. Each of our team shares a passion for animals, and has the skills to deliver enriching care to meet your pet's physical and emotional needs on a personalised basis. You can have confidence we'll look after your pet as if it were our own.

When not out and about looking after other peoples critters you will find her with her dog Eva (pictured), cats, birds, fish and a rabbit.

Rachel Maloney - Walkies Pet Care Professional

Hi! My name is Rachel and I am originally from UK but been in NZ for over 20 years. I have always had pets since I was a toddler and my pets have always been a big part of my family. I was lucky enough to come across Walkies when I was looking for a part time role and have been employed as a Pet Care Professional since 2011.

It is a privilege to look after people's much loved animals and I have built up great relationships with many of the furry friends. I have my pet first aid certificate and have also volunteered at the SPCA. In my spare time I love bush walking, meditation and reading. My favourite part of working at Walkies is doing the Christmas cat feeds as I get to hang out with the cats and give them cuddles and company while their family are away.


Margot Denford - Walkies Pet Care Professional

I am from the UK and met my Kiwi husband in London. In 2003 we moved to NZ and settled on the North Shore with our 2 sons.

I have always loved dogs and have a dog of my own, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, and am currently puppy raising my second guide dog
puppy for Blind/Low Vision NZ. My first puppy is now a qualified guide dog living in the South Island.
In the past I have worked at Blind/Low Vision NZ as a volunteer kennel assistant which involves exercising, grooming, feeding, health checks and generally assisting with dogs living in kennels. I have also worked as a volunteer on the SPCA/St John Pets Therapy programme.

My son has adopted a retired greyhound and my friend has a Cavoodle so I am experienced in walking all sizes of dog!

I have enjoyed working for Walkies for over 5 years and it fits in well with my lifestyle - being outdoors, keeping fit and being involved in the care of pets.
