Hello fur-parents!! I am a 23 year old university student with a love for all animals! I have been the go to pet sitter in my home for all of my friends and family for years and thought I would offer my service to others looking for a place their pet can stay and feel confident that they will be taken care of. I have always owned animals inclusive of dogs, cats, guinea pigs and fish. I currently have four guinea pigs of my own and a 4ft discus aquarium which bring me so much joy! I have chosen not to purchase a dog or cat until I finish university, so by taking care of your pets I can get my fury-friend fix whilst providing a reliable service where I treat your pets with all the love as if they were my own.
WALKING: I can offer 1 or 2 walks per day. I live next to multiple walking trails and open fields in the heart of Ashgrove where I walk the dogs most of the time unless there is a preferable location you would like me to walk your dogs. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and personalities, from German Shepards to miniature schnauzers and everything in between.
HOUSE SITTING/ HOME VISITS: I am able to offer house sitting either during the day or over night. I am more than happy to feed your fish or water you plants and provide my full attention to whatever animal you may have at home. If there are other tasks you would like me to do, ie. taking the rubbish out, please let me know as I would be more than happy to accommodate. Please note that if your home is more than 10 minutes away a fuel fee would need to be paid. I do not accept pet sitting in others homes that are more than 30 minutes away from where I live as fuel/time can get costly.
Please note: I absolutely love cats but I unfortunately can’t have them in my home, however I would be more than happy to take care of them in your own home :)
PET SITTING IN MY HOME: I live at home in the heart of Ashgrove next to multiple beautiful walking trails and large open fields. I have a medium to large back yard where they will be able to run around and play under supervision (in case your dog is a little escape artist). Your dog will sleep inside with me and get plenty of love and affection! There are no children at the house. I also live exactly 2 minutes from a vet (just in case to give you piece of mind). A morning and/or afternoon walk during their stay is complementary :) I work 8am to 4pm Sunday’s, however I am still able to care for your fury-friends before and after work. I also pop home to have lunch as I work 5 minutes away. If you would like to collect your fury-friend on a Sunday, before 8am or after 5pm is suitable.
You are more than welcome to request to meet with me prior to taking care of your animals and I would be happy to send you regular photo/message updates of your fury-friends.
**If you need two SMALL dogs looked after, there will be a discount for the second dog :)
Extra note for home boarding:
• Dogs must be toilet and house trained (no destructive behaviour, eg. pulling apart couches, digging up pot plants)
• Must not bark excessively
• Must be flea free, wormed and vaccinated
Please bring food, food/water bowls and I suggest bringing either a familiar small toy, bed or blanket so that your pet is extra comfy in my home :)
I can also look after small animals like guinea pigs for a small fee
Feel free to message me with any other questions you may have! I look forward to meeting and caring for your much loved pets!
Courtney was fantastic. My dog came home happy and was clearly excited when he saw Courtney the following day. I would reccomend Courtney to anyone.
Our dog seemed very happy with Courtenay and it was great to receive updates
