My name is John & I’ve been a very pro-active Pawshake Sitter for several years now.
I have a very special bond with canines which has been forged since I was a pup myself.
I know how important it is to have your furry family member well looked after when you're not around. I’ve moved away from the corporate world to do this almost full time but essentially it’s a passionate hobby for me. I’m university educated, fit/healthy & I am able to be with your pooch 100% of the time.
A typical day for your pooch may be meeting the daycare pups that visit each day at my property. Then it’s off to the beach, the Sturt Gorge or Blackwood Forest perhaps, for a 1-2 hour run. It’s wash downs & snacks around midday. Then it’s ball chasing, tug-a-war games, dog playing and sleepy time in the afternoon. Obviously, plenty of affection & reward is given out appropriately. Ensuring a dog finds his or her groove as soon as possible is my goal!
Rest assured, I will treat your pet as my own, ie with lots of love and care.
If you need me to feed your fur baby, then with your provided food, I will more than happily do that for you.
My home is situated very close to the beach and not far from CBD and the airport, thus making it convenient for pick ups and drop offs.
I am happy with pets being indoor or outdoor and I have a very large outdoor area with synthetic grass which allows outdoor activity in winter months. If you're away on holidays, I know how great it is to see snaps of your family pet, so I daily post video updates via my Instagram page.
I have the skills to ensure your pet will get along with other pets, so their stay is comfortable.
Daycare is a maximum 10 hour period from drop off. Boarding is for 24 hours from drop off.
If boarding, all you need to provide is a bed, lead, collar with council tag attached, bowl, your pooch’s usual food & snacks, medication (if required) and your pet of course!!
Hopefully i can become friends with your pooch soon.
John was incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated to give our baby girl a great mini holiday. He has so much experience and genuinely loves dogs! Samba was so happy, we were kept in the loop at all times with instagram updates as well, Samba loved her time with John, she slept for hours straight after we brought her back home! Thank you John!
Our first time leaving our puppy was perfect! Couldn’t have asked for a better dog sitter! Thanks guys - we will be back! 🐶
We are very competent in cleaning any & all pets but it will be essential that you provide the cleaning products, i.e. shampoos, soaps, brushes etc to minimise any chance of irritation to your pet's coat/skin.
Meanwhile, we can offer some basic cleaning & grooming for your pet so that he/she can be returned to you smelling beautiful.
