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:
***Unfortunately i am unable to house sit for 3-6 months as my dog has just had knee surgery and I need to be there for him. Apologies for the inconvenience****
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 fabulous - sent us updates, took Toto on various outings and treated him as one of her own. He seemed to have a wonderful time with Elly. Will use again.
Elly was absolutely wonderful, her knowlege and love of dogs was apparent and she looked after my guys like I would have, I have no hesitation in recommending Elly to any future clients
