About Ingrid

Update June/July 2024: I have a fractured wrist so can only take pets that don't require a walk.

I’m very excited to offer pet sitting in my home in Balga! I understand that when you go on holidays, you
want to trust that your pet is well loved and cared for. I will love your doggie like my own. I have often had a dog and my last dog, a staffy went to doggy heaven 5 years ago and I miss her. I provide a home boarding service for small size dogs. I have a small fenced-in paved backyard, most of which is shaded in summer. Your dog will be able to sleep inside if that's what your dog likes but needs to be toilet trained as I don’t have a doggie door. I have a park nearby and can take your dog for a short walk or play fetch in the park or back yard. I prefer to sit smaller dogs or dogs that won't pull hard on the lead when walking.

I am allergic to cat fur, so can't take care of cats. 

I am a calm, caring and patient person and I enjoy my relaxation time in nature.  

I am happy to provide daily photo updates to put your mind at ease. 

Your pet will feel safe, happy and loved while you are away! I will provide the same level of care that I would if they were my own pets. 

I am running a small business, mostly online, which means I can be around more to supervise/play with your pet, although I do like to be social and go out at times. I also do some part time caring work with short hours.

Our local vet is in Yokine or Balcatta. They have a 24 hour emergency room.

Ingrid was amazing with our 11 month old cavoodle. Right from our ‘meet and greet’ I felt very comfortable that our fur baby was going to be well cared for. Ingrid listened carefully and ensured she gathered any necessary information to ensure that our pup would feel at home with her. She gave us plenty of time on that visit and when we returned to drop him off for a 5 night stay. Ingrid sent us such lovely updates snd photos of their time together - they had wonderful outings to the park and socialising as our pup loves running and playing with other dogs. When we collected him he was calm and happy. Again Ingrid gave us plenty of time to debrief and show us lots of photos of our pup’s happy time. He has been well settled since coming home and I am happy in knowing that he was well loved during his little ‘holiday’. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ingrid and will definitely seek to have her mind our pup again.

Ingrid was amazing with my poodle Bella. She was so understanding of her needs. Bella suffers extreme seperation anxiety & Ingrid went above and beyond to help settle Bella and to keep her happy while I was gone.

She sent me photos of how she was doing which gave me further peace of mind, in turn allowing me to relax & enjoy my family event knowing Bella was in great hands.

I definitely recommend Ingrid to anyone wanting a sitter who's a true dog lover & who truly cares how your pet is feeling.
