Hi there I am Emma, an animal lover and animal rights advocate. I have a large house with a large fully fenced backyard. I usually work from home so I am available all day to spend time with your pet. I do not have any animals at home.
I can pet-sit at your house around the Lake Macquarie area, or have your pet at my house in Eleebana. Dogs must be toilet trained to stay in my home.
I have pet-sitted small and large, high and low energy dogs.
I have grown up with border collies all my life.
I used to be a nurse and can administer medication including subcutaneous injections. I volunteered with Monika's Doggie Rescue when I lived in Sydney am currently involved in animal rights groups. Your pet will be in the best hands possible.
There are no restrictions on pet size or breed. I do not have any pets of my own so your pet would be the centre of attention. I live with my partner who is also currently home most of the time.
Within 5km pick up/drop off from Eleebana is free. Outside of that it will incur an extra small fee just to cover expenses.
This will be discussed before the booking is made.
What's included in the services you offer?
The dog walks are 1 hour.
There is a nature reserve at the back of our house for long bushwalks. We check for ticks after bush walks.
How much time you can usually spend with guest pets on a daily basis?
I am usually working from home so your pet will always have company. If I am working outside of home my calendar will be marked as unavailable. If this is not an issue for your pet (they are ok being alone for 8 hours) just message me and I can tell you if I am unavailable due to another booking or unavailable due to working outside of home.
What is your home like?
Usually it’s just me and my partner. 2 days out of each fortnight my partners 3 children are over, so if your pet is not good with children just get in touch and we can discuss the dates to see if they match up.
The guest pets are allowed to sleep anywhere in the common areas inside. There is a dog bed set-up in the lounge room, see pictures. We have dog toys too.
The backyard is large and fully fenced, see the pictures. The gates/fence are safe and secure and about a metre high.
If your pet staying in our home, please bring any food, medications, toys, their bed, and anything else which will help them feel comfortable in our home.
Can discuss discounts for longer stays and regular clients.
Emma was great. Within a day of our first contact she came to my house to meet Toby and to learn his routine. She was lovely with him and very natural. The dog sit went well. Emma responded to my texts to say all was well and Toby comfortable and happy. Will definitely use her service again.
Emma was wonderful to my two cocker spaniels Elli and Radley. She was very caring and understanding of their needs. Both Emma and her partner Adam took tbem for a lovely bush walk which they would have enjoyed. I would highly recommend Emma for anyone looking for a caring person for their dogs.
