We are a family of 6 - mum, dad, 3 teenagers and a Shetland sheepdog. Having had dogs for most of our lives, and having looked after friends' dogs, we believe that we understand how dogs see their "hoomans". Dogs are part of our lives, but to them their "hoomans" are their whole life, hence we should truly look after them whole heartedly. We have a lot of love to give.
We love dogs of all sizes but prefer to babysit small to medium sized ones. 3 to 4 dogs (including ours) boarding at the time would be the ideal maximum, that way we can take good care of each and everyone of them. The dogs will have the run of the house as mum is home most of the time.
A typical day in this household; Dad leaves for work at 6.30am. Older children leave for uni between 8 and 10am, if they have classes, otherwise they're home. Mum takes youngest child to school at 7.45am and is back at home by 9am. Dad comes home at 3pm. Mum leaves home at 2.15pm to pick up youngest child from school and gets back home at 3.45pm. Older children come home at various times. Basically the house is almost never unattended.
Our front and back yards are secure - fully fenced.
While staying with us, fur babies will go on walks twice a day. We live close by to a park. Would prefer vaccinated & house trained dogs.
Claudia was absolutely amazing with our dachshund who was nearing the end of her recovery after a surgery. The level of care and love given meant our dog didn’t want to leave! A lovely family and we will definitely be back!
Teddy was absolutely spoiled by Claudia and her boys. Thanks for taking such good care of him.
