About Lucy

 Hi, I'm Lucy, 

Surround me with dogs and I'm in heaven! 

I love dogs of all breeds and sizes. I have been a dog sitter for 2 years now and it all began when my beautiful boy Rottie, Brock, passed away. I'm doing this by and large to be closer to dogs, who make
me happy.
 

I currently don't have any other pets or childre in my home, so your fur baby will be the focus of my attention while in my care. Although I'm not a dog trainer, I do have experience with rescue dogs and dogs with various forms of anxiety and behavioural issues, and each time I care for a new dog I am learning more about dog behaviour and how to provide the best experience for them that I possibly can. I also can administer oral
medications if your beloved pup needs them.
 

National Police Clearance (needs to be renewed).

I have a secure home, with a large fully fenced backyard so no doggo's can escape. I also have an ingrounded pool which is also fully fenced and secure, so if your doggies like to swim, I will make sure they
are supervised the whole time.
 

I only take vaccinated pets into my home.

SERVICES I PROVIDE:

Dog Boarding (24 hrs in my home): When you're going away and can't take your doggo along, let him/her enjoy the comforts of my dog friendly home without the stress of being in a kennel facility. 

Your pooch will get lots of cuddles and attention while in my care, and when my partner is home he loves to cuddle doggies on the couch too. We have plenty of comfy dog beds throughout our home, thanks to Brock, and there is a doggie door for them to go outside when they need to. Your dogs stay with me will be exactly as you request, so as to ensure minimal change to their usual routine and for your peace of mind. 

Doggy Day Care (up to 12 hrs in my home): Want a doggy day care without the chaos and noise of a day care that have lots of dogs all together at one time? Some dogs and owners love these types of day care facilities because they provide important socialisation, exercise and stimulation for your pooch, but there may be times when your furry pal needs time out from these hectic days. I provide a quiet, comfortable and safe home for your pup to chill out and relax, with one-on-one time to keep them stimulated and happy. 

I only take in one dog at a time, unless there are multiple dogs from the same family, or owners can guarantee me that the doggo's are friends and play together regularly. So you can rest assured that your
furry pal will get lots of attention and love in a safe, happy environment.
 

House Visits (1 hr): Includes feeding, replenishing water bowls, cleaning up doggy mess and poop, taking your fur baby out for toilet breaks and spending quality time playing their favourite games. 

Transport: I have a reliable dog friendly car to transport your pooch to vet appointments, grooming visits, the airport, or where ever you need. They will be secured in my car with a dog friendly seat belt. Additional fees may apply if travelling to areas outside of Forrestfield and surrounds.

Outings: Does your doggo like going to Bunnings, or a dog friendly cafe? I love taking well behaved dogs in my care for little outings to give them stimulation and enjoyment. I also have some friends who love it when
I visit them with my resident pup in toe for a coffee and a catch up. They don't currently have pets of their own and their homes are just like mine, fully fenced and secure.
 

Meet & Greet: I recommend a meet and greet beforehand so your dog can get to know me and sniff my home/yard. That way when they come to stay, it's not too much of a shock for them. Usually conducted in
my home for dog boarding and day care bookings, but at your home for house visits and dog walking only bookings. That way you can show me where to find things like leads/harnesses, feeding area, litter disposal area etc. Meet and Greets are free with no obligations.

I will take photos of your pooch and send you regular updates so you have peace of mind they are in safe and loving hands. 

I look forward to meeting you and your doggo's soon ❤️

We cannot recommend Lucy enough!!!

This was the first time using both the app and a pet sitter. Lucy was super helpful with our questions and last minute booking, our minds were put to ease immediately when we met Lucy at her lovely dog friendly home. It’s clear Lucy is an animal lover who takes pride in not only looking after but spoiling her 4 legged friends.

We received regularly updates both pictures and messages which was great. Our girl Sadie even got to keep a toy she fell in love with at Lucy’s house.

Thanks so much Lucy!!
