I've always had 3 to 5 doggies living with me. And they are family .
You will never hear me say the word "owner", you don't own your family! ! I prefer your child, or calling you the mother or father.
I've done lots of fostering in the past and all live inside with access to outside areas.
My door stays open overnight for the doggies to be able to access the garden at night.
From the pictures you will see the doggie lounge. Couches for all the pooches. My bedroom is also pooch friendly. So basically the whole house is theirs.
At the moment there is only me and my 2 rescues.
My reasons for joining this was we do lots of trips to the beach and river walks. (when the snake season is not around) lots of playtime and fun. Happy to do one on one care, as well as filling the poochmobile and setting off for the day.
These include Brighton doggie beach, as well as Anglesea, Flinders, and safety beach. In the winter / autumn, merri creek, moonee ponds creek, maribinong river and the Yarra river around templestowe.
I have a rav 4 wagon, which I use for the doggies, dark tinted windows and working air Con and heating.
I live close to the Merri Creek which is our usual doggie walk (around 2 hrs plus), in the snake off season. I can keep the doggies on lead, or offlead.
I can build a rapport with pooches very quickly and understand pooch social behavior. I have a good knowledge and understanding of k9 behaviors and pack mentality.
I have 2 calm friendly Rescues whoare amazing around other doggies.
I can adapt activities to your dogs needs, whether lots of physical play/ running, or just a slow social walk. A walk is usually around an hour an half min. if boarding it also includes daily walks and adventures
Bassam & his lovely doggies are the absolute best. He put in a huge amount of effort and was amazingly enthusiastic and caring about making my dog feel comfortable & happy. His knowledge about (and deep love of) dogs is obviously based on long-term, in depth experience with all breeds & temperaments. Dog sitters like Bassam are very rare, and we will be going back when ever we can. Seriously, don't waste your time with anyone else if you can get a booking with Bassam - your dog will feel very safe and loved in his care!!
I rebooked with Baz for a quick trip duringhte week. He was extremely helpful with both pick up and drop off of Sophie. She was super pumped to see him and she completely forgot who I was when she saw Baz and the other dogs. I would not hesitate in recommending Baz to look after my friends and families dogs. He's my first stop when looking for a dog sitter for Sophie.
Very social, and motivated for lots of play time. We usually spend around 3 hrs walking, and about 6 hrs at the beach. I've always had many doggies in my care, either as a favor for friends or rescue groups. Worked with anxious and older dogs as well. Have had 4 rescue grey hounds straight from the industry. I'm used to having large doggies, but have had many smaller dogs as well.
