I am an animal lover with two small dogs of my own. I grew up with various pets my whole life and often pet sit family and friends pets when they’re owners are on holidays. From July 2019 I will be home full time and can offer 24/7 care to your beloved pet. I have a secure backyard, with plenty of grass for running around, and allow my own dogs to come in and out of the house as they please so I am happy for your pets to do the same.
Our dogs are walked regularly and yours will be included. We generally walk on the footpath around a lake near our house or run around the oval close by. Weather permitting we try to get out for walks several days per week, especially on weekends. Our dogs are bathed on the weekends (as long as the weather is warm and sunny) and I’m happy to bath yours too. I treat my dogs as though they are my fur kids, they are very much family members, very well loved and you can expect your fur babies to get the same treatment.
Our dogs sleep inside on their own beds. Unless you have a specific sleeping arrangement, your dog will be inside on their own bed with ours. Your pet must be used to/good with small kids/babies and other (small) dogs as I have 1 toddler, a baby and 2 miniature dachshunds. Your female dog must be desexed as we have 1 male who is not. Unfortunately I cannot takes dogs that are over 12kg as my two dogs are scared of bigger dogs and can get defensive. They get along perfectly well with other small or slightly bigger dogs though. I’m happy to care for bigger dogs at their own home by visiting, feeding, playing and walking them - morning and evening. Please let me know if you have any specific dietary, medication or other requirements. I am happy to accomodate for these.
Once I knew Shayne-Marie owned dacshunds herself, I knew I had found the right person to look after Penny and I was right.
Penny had a great time staying with Shayne-Marie and her family. I was sent photos on a regular basis of what Penny was getting up too, I enjoyed these photos so much and confirmed I had made the right decision.
I have no hesitation for Shayne-Marie to look after Penny in the future.
I highly recommend Shayne-Marie for any one looking for someone to look after their beloved pets. She treats the pets as they are part of her family.
Seeing my 3 fur babies sad little faces when I left them for 4 nights was heart breaking. Seeing the pictures that Shayne sent of all 3 snuggled up to her was astounding as at least 2 of my 3 can be very anti social. They were spoiled way too much, even got to sleep on her bed! They were excited when I went to pick them up but said their goodbyes to everyone who they had barked at on day 1. All together a great experience for my dogs and my peace of mind. Highly recommend Shayne-Marie to anyone ❤
