We are Stefan and Jacqui, two fun loving dog enthusiasts who are looking to up our involvement and contact with man's best friend. We are 34 and 32 years old respectively and are looking to accommodate dog sitting around our careers. We have both had experience as pet owners and carers - Stefan has owned and had experience with cocker spaniels and mixed breed bulldogs and staffies. Jacqui has owned and had experience with maltese terriers, pugs, mixed breed terriers, and dachshunds.
Living in a very central location in a pet friendly household we would aim to provide a fun and caring environment for your dog. We live in a medium sized apartment. Although we don't have a leafy backyard we are only 2 minutes walk from Marrickville oval, and we would spend a lot of time with them there. We both drive and are familiar with dog walking areas such as Callan Park, and Hawthorne Canal Reserve (cafe bones). As dog lovers we would endeavour to understand your dogs personal needs and would further research their specific breed to understand them further. We know that some dogs find new people and environments stressful and confusing, so we would try to build strong relationships with your pet and make our home as inviting as possible.
We will endeavour to update our schedule when possible, but even if we are 'unavailable' please feel free to contact us to check on availability and ask any questions you may have. Currently we are both in full time employment so can not offer around the clock care (mon-fri) but will endeavor to keep your dog as active and social as we can. This means we can only offer doggy day care on the weekend.
We went away for an extra-long weekend and left our two dogs with them. Jacqui and Stefan were amazing. They were very friendly and our dogs immediately felt at home. Jacqui sent me regular updates and did not mind if I texted her in-between asking if our dogs were still doing okay. They took our dogs on regular walks and did not mind our dogs sleeping inside on the couch, as that is what they are used to. Our dogs came back very happy and relaxed and we will definitely leave our dogs with them again next time we go away.
Jacqui and Stefan were great sitters. They sent plenty of photos, showing Toby was having a great time. He was so tired after we picked him up, he almost slept through dinner. We would not hesitate to contact them again.
