We are a retired couple with a long history of having pet dogs and also looking after dogs while friends have been away; we also look after dogs through another platform. While we live in Camden Park we are willing to travel 30 mins to a home.
Experience and history:
Up until recently (when we started pet sitting) we have always had dogs in the family home - often 2 at a time, and always large breeds (German Shepherds, Great Dane, German Shorthaired Pointer, Kelpie). During our pet sitting experiences we have looked after a wide range of breeds including German Shepherd, Staffy, Labradoodle, Jack Russell, Labrador x Staffy, Border Collie, Kelpie) and have loved every one of them! We have also taken care of relatives' pets occasionally including Maltese Schitzu, and cats.
Amongst these, a number have needed regular medication so we feel comfortable doing so for others. We are also confident in walking all breeds (obviously including the big babies!).
We live in a lovely home in Camden Park with a small-to-medium sized backyard (also have parks nearby) and can offer a comfortable experience for your pet/s. We are home most of the day and only have a small number of commitments during the week and on Saturday morning. We can certainly work around what your pet requires and is used to.
Overnight stays - we will come and stay in your home for however many nights required, feed your pet/s and keep their water topped-up. We will water any plants and take out the bins if required. If overnight stays include a walk this will be of no extra charge. Your pet/s will also receive lots of cuddles and play-time - anything to make them feel happy in their home, just like their day-to-day.
Daily visit - we offer 1 visit per day; we will check on your pet/s, feed them, top up their water bowl, and spend time with them. This will be approximately 2 hours depending on what is required (may include a walk if requested). If you also require a plant watering this will increase to 2.5 hours.
Our home stays - we will look after your pet/s in our home, feed them, provide water, and walk them if requested. We will give lots of cuddles and treat them like our own - anything to make them comfortable especially as it is a strange place for them. We will also walk your pet/s if requested - timing depends on what your pet is used to having, and will be no extra charge. We do require that you drop-off and pick-up your pet/s at our home.
*If medication is required during any of the above services we will ensure this is given accordingly based on your advice and guidance. Please also ensure emergency details are provided.
We love all dogs, in all shapes and sizes, young and old - as we no longer have our own, it is thoroughly enjoyable to still have babies to cuddle and keep them happy while you are away.
No problem asking Wendy to sit our dog again
I had a great experience with Wendy and her partner. It was my first time using this site and the first time my dogs had been to strangers house to stay and I felt so comfortable leaving them there. Easy and quick communication and responses. Would definitely recommend. The dogs seemed extremely happy and spoilt!
We both hold current National Police Certificates
