About Ken

Hey Everyone!

I am a 21 year old Christian who is currently unemployed. I decided to sign up with Pawshake as I have always had a love for pets and to gain more experience in pet caring. My home is pet friendly, we have a medium sized back yard for our family dog to run around, she's a mini-fox by the name of Pepsi. The services I am offering are listed below. I mostly prefer working with small dogs, although I do occasionally make exceptions for medium sized dogs, as long as they are really friendly and not too difficult to handle. I have also had some experience with looking after a lamb (that's right, a LAMB!) When it comes to food and bedding for the pet staying over, I simply ask that the owner provide their pets bedding and food as it just makes it easier for us instead of rushing around buying the right food, and that way at least the owners also know that their pet is getting the right feed! I try to take as many photos as I can and give the owners updates on how their pet is going throughout their stay.

  • NOTE: providing the bedding and food for your pet is FREE, I don’t charge extra for anything except for if a pet is staying for a little longer than what was proposed. ALL

owners must also provide their pets own food and water bowls as there aren't enough bowls here for us to provide for the "guests".

  • NOTE:
  • ALL owners are required to give a heads up on if they are going to be early and/or late when picking up/dropping off their pet. They also MUST give an accurate time of pick up/drop off. This makes it easier for my family and I as we would be able to better plan our day accordingly instead of having to wait around, unsure of when the owner will be coming. ALL future bookings are also required to participate in a "meet & greet", so that any potential "guests" can come by and get a feel of the environment in which they will be staying, and so their owners can also check out the place. Any owners who can't participate in the meet and greet (unless due to valid reasons) will NOT be allowed to go ahead with the official booking.

  • I'M NOT TRYING TO SOUND STRICT BUT THIS JUST REALLY HELPS! :)
  • My services :)

    • Home Dog Boarding - For home dog boarding I charge $25 a day for a pet, and if the owner had more than one pet/dog that needed looking after, my

    rate for each additional pet is $15. How the home dog boarding works is, firstly, once I have been contacted by an owner, and if I am available during the times that they are asking for, I schedule a meet and greet before the pet's official stay (usually done at my house) so that the owner and pet can just get a feel of the house and environment before hand. If all goes well at the meet and greet, the next thing that usually gets done is just finalizing details, which mainly just involved the food, bedding, where they will be sleeping, and whether or not they need to be taken for walks throughout their stay. Once that is sorted, then its on to the pets stay at my place, and once they have settled I try to give an update here and there about how they are going. A typical day in home dog boarding at my place mainly just involves playing with and caring for the pet, keeping it fed and happy and sending it to bed at night to repeat the process the next day.

    • Doggy Day Care - Again, the pricing is the same as it is for home dog boarding, charging $25 a day and $15 for each additional pet. Doggy day care is very similar to the home dog boarding, except in this case the dog doesn't stay over night. It always starts with a meet and greet and depending on how that goes it just picks up from there. As the pet will usually just be styaing for the day in this service, I let the owners choose whether or not they want to provide their food or just let their pet have what ever pet food we have (if that is okay with them) as it would just be easier than having to bring their food over just for a day. Again I ask similar questions to the home dog boarding - does the pet need to be taken for walks? kept inside? kept outside? etc.
    • Dog Walking - I haven't been asked to do this ervice yet, but again its $25 per day and $15 for each additional pet. The way this would work, is I would probably try to organise a meet and greet where I would visit the owners house or we would meet up at a near by park, just so that I myself could get a feel of the pet and just see how things go. If the pet plays nice and the owner is happy with it, from there I would just finalize and details and when the date arrives to take the pet for it's first walk, I would organise a time to meet at the owners house, and once there discuss how long the would is needed to be and plan a time for when I am to return the pet back home.
    • One Home Visit Per Day -

    Rate per day is $20. This is where I would go to the owners house while they're away to just check up on their pets, which usually just involves making sure they have food and water, having a little play with them if needed, as well as taking them for a walk if required.

    • Two Home Visits Per Day -

    Rate per day is $25,

    and everything else is just like the above description except it is two visits instead of one.

    • House Sitting -

    I have only just recently added House Sitting as one of the services I provide. My rate per day is $45. Thanks! Can't wait to hear from you! :)

    I have used Ken’s boarding service for the first time and I very happy with the care he had given to my furry family member Jessie. 😊 With no hesitation I will use Ken’s services in the future and recommend him to others.

    Thank you so much Ken, see you next time 🤗
