We are a fur and feather loving family, I'm Paul with my wife Jenette, and two kids Ned and Holly with several little scampers, our little cheeky conure bird, lovely guinea pig and Maple the happy spoodle. We are active in the community and love the idea of helping each other out with affordable care options. We have looked after friends dogs and I have ridden and leased horses over the 30 years.
My wife and I have police checks (via working with vulnerable people clearances). I have completed RSPCA approved pet sitter training.
We can take your pups for a walk while you are away, which gives your pooch a break with some stimulation and socialisation. We will take them for a minimum of half an hour walk and can accommodate a variety of 'on leash' skills. With my kids sometimes in tow we can play more and enjoy one of life's pleasures. Between the four of us, we have availability most weeknights and weekends to come and feed your pets and will walk the dogs or play with your cats, rabbits, or other little buddies!
As a carer for your beloved pets, we would only provide the service we would want for my very own animals. We promise to work with you, and keep your animals basic routine as similar to his/her normal one whilst you are away, so as not to stress them, and keep their lives as comfortable and normal as possible.
Please note that letting us know about any concerns you have will not disadvantage your pet but will enable us to ensure we provide the safest care possible. Let us know if they are or have recently been on medications, had a recent injury or significant injury in the past. This means we can watch for side effects or reoccurrences and inform you or a vet promptly.
For non-emergency injury or illness we will provide first aid or if appropriate we can take your animal to your choice of vet. If however, it is an emergency we will take him/her to our closest vet and contact you as soon as practical. Your animal’s safety will come first. Please don’t hesitate to talk to us about emergency plans.
Dog behaviour correction: We will not physically punish your dog, if a firm ‘No’ or other commands are ineffective we will simply remove them from the situation. Your pet is our guest and it is not up to us to alter behaviours unless you specifically want them altered.
We are looking forward to meeting you and your little buddies!
This is the first time I used Pawshake. I literally found them to though Google.
I was super nervous to use them as I have never left my dog with anyone I didn't know which the meet and greets helped with.
We had moved states this year and I had noone I new or could rely on to look after my dog if I had to go away. So Paul and his family were my saviours. Absolutely wonderful, made me feel at ease to leave my Furbaby with them. My dog had a good time and was looked after so well.
I received updates and photos regularly which also helped very much.
I would most definitely use them again!
Thank you to Paul and his family 😊
Paul and his family were absolutely amazing sitters. They cared for our two dogs as if they were their own and sent many updates on how they were going. I will absolutely be returning to Paul and his family! Betty and Cooper had a wonderful time and were so happy and healthy when we picked them up. Thanks Paul!
Not pet related but Jenette and I have Working with Vulnerable Persons clearances, which requires a police clearance.
