Hi, I am currently living with my husband and 3 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi in Harris Park. We have lived in the area for over 7 years now and are familiar with all the local hot spots and dog friendly areas.
As a dog sitter we are happy to take your pup for walks and to the local dog park if you would like. We frequent the Dan Mahoney Reserve daily and have taken dogs there and supervise them closely.
I took up pet sitting as it was a great way to socialise other dogs with Marlee who really loves have a buddy around. It also allowed me to give back to these devoted, loyal animals who have given me so much these past years.
As a dog sitter I am happy to take them out for walks. Mostly twice a day if they stay overnight. We have a balcony with a potty plant and doggy door for bathroom emergencies but usually take them downstairs for a toilet break. I try to incorporate the dogs into our daily lifestyle as much as possible as I do with my own dog. Just this past Xmas we looked after two dogs when their owners went away on holidays and took them to a family Xmas lunch. Your dog will be treated as a much loved family member. So on weekends we usually take them for a hike or take them with us when we run errands.
I am currently working full time so your dog will have the company of my dog Marlee. I also have a pet camera so periodically check in on the dogs this way.
As we live in an apartment on the top level (no lift) we prefer smaller to medium sized dogs that have been de-sexed, vaccinated, worm and flea treated. Marlee is de-sexed and is up-to-date with his vaccinations and treatments. Marlee is an inside dog so we prefer if your dog is also accustomed to being an inside dog. Marlee is an easy going, fun loving dog who gets along well with the majority of dogs. He is very well socialised we are happy to incorporate your usual training and routine when your dog stays with us.
Breeds I've looked after include Corgi French Bulldog, Puggle, Dachshund, Schnauzer, Pomeranian, Lhasa Apso, Whippet and mixed breed dogs. I've looked after puppies up to senior dogs, for as little as 1 day to 1 month.
Stephanie was great with our Puppy! She even took him on 2 walks! Archie loved his time there and enjoyed playing with Marley! Will definitely come back! :)
I cannot speak highly enough of the service that Stephanie provided for our dog. She was constantly providing us with image updates, took him for exercise and nature walks and made him a part of her family while he was in her care. Recommend 100%.
Happy to provide names of people we have dog sat for if you require referees.
