Hi! I'm Rebecca, I'm a university student from New Zealand and I currently live in Essendon with my housemate Ben, and my beautiful golden Lab X Jax and black Lab X Molly.
After visiting the Lost Dog's Home one rainy Thursday afternoon and seeing Jax sitting so patiently in his block with a fluffy sweater on, I knew I had to take him home! Since then, my life has been filled with so much love and non-stop kisses. Not long after, I knew Jax needed a friend, which is where Molly came in! She came to me as a teeny little pup, and even though she's grown now, she and Jax are still the best of buds and will always choose to sleep cuddled next to him.
Having recently moved into a new place with a massive backyard, the dogs are absolutely loving life running around all day long followed by a quick nap and snack inside before going back out to play. Because our backyard is so big, I would love for other dogs to come join in the fun too! As much as Jax and Molly enjoy playing with each other, they really love meeting new dogs and having many pals to play with instead of just each other, which is why I want to start dog sitting again. Both Ben and I work shift work so your pup will never be left on their own - please note, there are weeks where we both work night shifts so we may only be able to accomodate only daycare on those days, just ask for my availability!
Leaving your pup in our doggy day care will mean a large secure area for them to run around and play in all day! We have plenty of toys which Jax and Molly are always happy to share (except for when playing tug of war!) and I always love to join in with some fetch. Your dog will also have access to the indoor kitchen/dining area where they can come for some treats and a snooze once they're all tired out - although this never lasts long! I may sometimes take them for walks but this will always be done separately or with my housemate as I would not be able to control more than 2 dogs on my own.
Overnight stays will be similar - your dog will be fed and cuddled and well looked after by both me and my dogs! Jax and Molly both sleep inside so your dog will too. We have a few food bowls but it may be best to bring your own. They sometimes choose to sleep on my bed but they have a bed in the kitchen that they choose to share, if you are booking for an overnight stay, I would suggest leaving the bed and bringing just a blanket instead - they get destroyed too often!
Whilst we are happy to hang with dogs of all sorts, Jax and Molly are both still young, high energy dogs so our home may be unsuitable for older dogs, less social dogs, or dogs with injuries/disabilities. They are already buzzing to be making new friends, so give us a message!
Thanks again to Rebecca & Ben. Sookie had a great time & was well looked after during her three night stay. Sookie will be back.
We would definitely recommend Rebecca, as a first time user of the Pawshake service she was really easy to deal with and patient with our lively puppy. She has a big backyard and two lovely dogs to play with, Holly came back happy and tired!
