Please feel free to send me a message before you make a booking. I am happy to work with you around any necessary arrangements that you may have.
I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs (as you can tell from the photos) who have had or be in constant contact with pets for more than half my life. I grew up with a mini schnauzer, Schatzie, and have recently lived with a golden retriever, Leon, that I still visit every so often. I WILL say hi to any dog that I pass by. I’ve also had several pet fish and a terrapin growing up. I have been trusted with pet sitting for friends and family for years whenever they are away.
I would like to be able to help out other Canberra pet owners in the same way too. Also, this gives me a chance to be around fur babies since I live in accommodation that doesn’t allow pets. I will care for your pets as I would care for my own. Be rest assured that your pets will be in safe hands. I love and am comfortable looking after dogs of all sizes, no matter how big or small. Other than dogs, I can and am more than happy to take care of your cats, rabbits, guinea pigs (basically, any small-medium sized mammals), birds, fish and turtle as well.
Services I Provide
For every service, I will take at least one photo of your pet for your peace of mind :)
- Dog Walking
I will gladly walk your dog(s) if you require it. If your dogs are comfortable with car rides, I will gladly take your dog to the nearest dog park as well. Dog walks/playtime at the park will be at a minimum of 30 minutes unless there are other restrictions that shorten these. The more energy your dogs have, the better! Please note that you will need to provide a leash, collar/harness or any other equipment you need for walks.
- Home Visits
I am able to visit your home once or twice a day. For each home visit, I will stay at your house for about 20 minutes to check on and play with your beloved furbaby. I am also happy to help out with other basic house tasks such as watering your garden and/or taking your bins or mail in if you will be away for an extended period of time.
- House Sitting
I am also able to stay overnight in your (let's face it, it’s your pets’) home if required. Dog walking will be included in this service too (if you have a dog). I will try to keep to your pet’s normal routine as much as possible as to not stress them out. You can guarantee plenty of playtime and cuddles for your pet. Let me know any tricks your pet may know to elevate playtime to the next level!
Please leave a 5-star review if you are happy with the services I’ve provided you and your fur babies! :)
Maverick was fantastic with communication. He was very accommodating and was happy to be flexible with my short notice changes. He looked after Siri well and sent photos nearly every day. Would recommend and have him look after Siri again
Mav looked after our two pomeranians over a long weekend and our babies were happy and relaxed when we got home.
In our introductory meeting it was obvious our dogs liked Mav straight away which gave us confidence. Even our toddler seemed really taken with him.
Mav was fantastic sending through photos and stories while we were away which we really appreciated.
During Mav's stay our plans changed and we had to extend his stay and Mav was really accommodating.
I will happily re-book with Mav and recommend others do so too.
