Hi, I'm the fur mum of a well loved and indulged miniature schnauzer, Miss Billie. I grew up with dogs and in recent years have loved having my own. Miss Billie are very socialised, and until recently shared the house with her big brother Magnus. My pets are my babies and have always gone with me wherever possible and we often have friends dogs visit. My social engagements usually include venues suitable for them.
I've been minding dogs for friends and members of my dog club for several years. While usually only a few days, I have had dogs staying up to a month so am experienced in looking after other dogs.
My home is very dog friendly and features a dog door for access between house and yard. My dogs sleep inside on their beds. I have an average sized backyard that is fully fenced and backs onto a reserve and walking path. The yard has a lush shady lawn and a sandpit to dig about in. There are no cats or bird residents to worry about.
All our canine guests are treated as part of the family, allowed inside and the recipients of lots of pats, cuddles, and affection. They also come along on our twice daily walks. on weekends we frequently go for trips to the dog park, beach and on outings.
WHAT TO BRING FOR YOUR DOGS STAY WITH US:
You supply their food to avoid upset tummies from sudden diet changes, and sleeping conditions depend on what they are used to. I suggest owners bring a piece of their clothing for their dog to sleep with for comfort while away from home.
Thank you again Yvonne for taking such good care of our Lucy. She has a great time with you and is always ready to go back for another stay. It is comforting for us to know that Lucy is in such good hands when we are away. Kevin & Rhonda
Our first experience with out of home care and I arrived with EVERYTHING in case he (Harry the dog) pined. I am sure he didn't touch a thing as everything he could possibly want or need was already there. An excellent experience for both of us and one we are hoping to repeat.
No formal skills, however both my dogs have received basic skills training for obedience, with occasional refreshers.
I can administer oral medication but nothing more invasive.
