About Chris

Whether it's swimming, playing fetch, reinforcing voice commands or a more sedate stroll that is required, Chris at Precious Pets provides what you require for your Best Friend.

Chris respects life in its diversity and appreciates how needs change as we age. Chris will listen to you relating your friend's particular needs and idiosyncrasies so that he will be able to provide the care needed.

Chris has broad experience with animals, having lived in both town and country. He is skilled in managing such matters as limited mobility, wounds, and special diets and is comfortable with administering IM injections.

While attending your pet in their own home, Chris can also attend to some of the many minor domestic matters in your absence ranging from watering the fowls and garden to meal preparation.

With Cefer Cat in charge of the domestic realm, pet hosting & day care options are limited to well-behaved, cat-friendly creatures.

A little about Chris at Precious Pets: Life is very important - mine, yours and that of your pet. Working from home I need regular exercise, while both Cefer Cat (he likes well-mannered dogs) & I miss our good mate, Monty.

With plenty of swimming and walking, a proper diet along with therapeutic massage and acupuncture, Monty (a very distinguished Curly Coated Retriever) enjoyed nearly 15 years close companionship; his time being evenly divided between living in the glorious Adelaide Hills and on Adelaide’s coast. We travelled a lot and the car can be configured for ease of access and senior dog comfort.

Having long been involved in grassroots community and not-for-profit groups, as well as serving on Boards of Management, my network is both broad and geographically widespread. My professional background ranges from laboratory technical to commercial cookery.

At the end of our street starts a complex of green space extending a kilometre across playing fields. Just beyond this is Semaphore Beach which is dog-friendly. Looking east by 400 metres we have the Port River loop path with mangroves and dolphins. All in all, this is a great place for exercising dogs either on or off leash in a quiet neighbourhood.
