My name is Elly Lang, I am 20 years old and a qualified dog trainer.
I own a young 2 year old staffy x mastiff, Arlo (Yes, after a disney character haha), who is the most friendly dog you'll ever meet. And if given the opportunity I would love to bring him for pet sitting with me. Arlo is extremely friendly with every animal he's ever incounted, including cats!
Although it may seem like I only look after dogs, you are wrong :) I look after cats, rabbits and many other animals.
Animals I care for:
Dogs, (Reactive, anxious, nervous, exciteable, big or small), Cats (inside, outside, skittish, friendly), Guinea pigs, Rabbits, Birds, Chickens, Farm animals (will need thorough explanation, prices may differ) etc I am fully capable at looking after all animals big or small and providing them with all the special requirements each individual animal needs.
Pet First aid and CPR certificate- For peace of mind, I currently keep an up to date pet first aid kit in my car, in which I am fully trained to use.

What I offer:
House sitting- $55 a night. Includes up to 2 pets provided with at least one walk a day, comfort, cuddles and feeding. Of course, includes poop scoops as well as cleaning out of hutches and kitty litter. Additional Pets $5 per night. Not only do I look after your pets but your home as well. I will take bins in and out as well as check and store mail. I always ensure to leave the house as though i had not been there. I do a complete clean of the house before i leave as well as wash anything I may have used.
Not to worry, I will provide photos as much as i can! I know how important it is to ensure they're looked after and i'm sure you'll love seeing their smiling face :D
One home visit per day $26, Includes dropping in to check up, feed, play and cuddle your pet. Additional Pets $5
Two home visits per day $40, Includes dropping in to check up, feed, cuddle, play and at least a 20 minute walk. Additional pets $5.
I will provide photos as much as i can! I know how important it is to ensure they're looked after and i'm sure you'll love seeing their smiling face :D
Dog walking- 25$ for around an hours walk. Additional pet $10. Generally in an hour, I am able to walk the dogs for around 4-5km. Also, if there is any training that you are currently doing with your dog i would gladly continue it throughout the walk.
The only reason I use the word 'around' is because if anything is noticeably wrong with your pet, something i don't feel is quite right or it is unsafe to walk i will cut the walk short. I believe in providing the best care and sometimes that means making the hard call of not going for a walk that day (if this happens a full refund will be given), only going for a shorter one due to dogs age or if weather is too hot ensuring I take them first thing of the morning or late an night.
In order for me to provide the best care possible, I do have a couple sheets of paper with information that i like to know about your dog. This is so I know as much information as possible so that if something does go wrong i am supplied with all the necessary information.
*Please note: I do currently work between 5-10 hours a day, a couple of days a week, so should I look after your pet they would need to be okay with being alone for that long, of course after exercise and mental stimulation before I leave and when I come home*
Looking forward to looking after your pets for you!
Elly was professional and communicative prior and during her housestay with our 2 cats. Elly noticed one of my cats was sick and promptly asked permission to take him to the vet, and administered medication confidently after the vet visit. Elly was also respectful and considerate of our home, and most importantly, our cats loved her! Will definitely book Elly again.
Elly came to visit our cat, Lulu, while we were on holiday. Elly was so easy to communicate with. She was always prompt with her replies. She was also very accommodating when it came to arranging the meet and greet. Elly looked after Lulu so well. She could tell that Lulu needed extra cuddles and was generous with her time. We are definitely keen to have Elly look after Lulu again. Elly is responsible and she is also a lovely person.
