About Wimpy

Check out my description below to help you decide if I'm the right dog sitter for you.

I PROVIDE:

  • Dog boarding during the agreed upon duration including daily group field trips.
  • A boarding limit of up to 3 dogs only to ensure top quality care and attention.
  • Dogs have access to both indoors and backyard and are welcome to sleep indoors.
  • Available dog amenities include multiple dog beds, toys, bowls and puzzles.
  • Security cameras add an extra layer of safety
  • No children in a smoke-free household
  • Pictures and video updates sent to you and posted on my socials.
  • YOU PROVIDE:

    • Collar / harness and leash
    • Adequate dog food and treats
    • Up to date vaccination 
    • Dogs need to be desexed & not reactive for safety
    • Optional only if needed: crate, blanket, particular toys
    • GROUP FIELD TRIPS EXPLAINED:

                Your dog will join a group of compatible and friendly dogs on a fun, day-time field trip to a variety of different pet-friendly places such as off-leash fenced parks, western beaches, forest and nature trails. Changing locations every day keeps our trips fresh and exciting! My goal is to keep dogs calm, content and happy at home by giving them adequate exercise outdoors.

      ON DOG SOCIALISATION:

                Dogs will share their space with other dogs in some way, whether it's in my home, car, at the dog park, or when passing other dogs during walks. Because of this, I can only take social and non-reactive dogs who can share a space with other dogs. Since all dogs are unique, I use my familiarity with different dog friendly locations to determine which ones will best suit the dog group.

      ON DOG TRAINING:

                I am not a professional dog trainer, but I try to use basic training commands to communicate with dogs. Dogs do not need to be perfectly trained, but I will require an acceptable level of obedience and manners. I always try to reward good behaviour, I can be firm if necessary, and I avoid using force unless it is a safety issue. 

      MEDICAL EMERGENCY:

                I will contact the owner or emergency contact if ever a vet visit becomes necessary. You agree to reimburse me for all expenses incurred. To this date, I have yet to require vet services for any of my guest dogs because I try to be selective of the dogs I board together. Nevertheless, I am prepared for such an emergency.

      ** Feel free to message me if you have any further questions. And if you feel that we might be a good match, then let's have a meet & greet!

      Doggy Day Care
      Melissa, 2024-03-26

      What has been most impressive is Wimpy's ability to navigate the needs of each dog. My Coco is a Parti Poodle and is mostly well behaved but since a little snuffle at the park, where she was overpowered by the bigger dogs, she has been a little hesitant to be free at the park. Wimpy is gently reintroducing her.

      Dog Boarding

      Wimpy accepted my booking with short notice (a couple of days before the date) for me which was a lifesaver given I was travelling with my dog from out of town. He’s so caring and gentle with dogs, and I was kept up to date the entire stay with lots of happy photos of the walks and naps my dog had.

      I’d use him again before finding another pet sitter in Adelaide and would highly recommend to other dog owners. He clearly loves dogs and wants them to be happy at all times. Thanks Wimpy.
