We are a family with 3 children (ages 16, 14 and 7). All of us love animals and are happy to give your pet an inclusive, attentive, caring family home when you are away. We have had dogs previously, but the family dog died from old age a few years ago and we do not yet have a new family dog. Your dog will be treated like our own family dog (welcome inside, sleeping in kids rooms etc) during their stay. We have 3 fluffy chickens who have an enclosed home in the back yard. We also have 3 bunnies (one lop eared, one English Angora and one Netherland Dwarf X) who live in a separate colorbond enclosure in the backyard and / or one bedroom (depending on the needs of the dog we have staying). I work part-time in an office-type job.
Our home is:
- Secure backyard with a locked gate and 1.8 metre high colourbond fencing on 3 sides, timber fence in excellent condition on the remaining side. Medium / large backyard (700m block) with plenty of shade trees, space to run around, splash pool, balls and toys for playing and a verander with a lounge that pets can relax on.
- Caring: we will treat your pet as part of the family with lots of love and attention if your pet stays with us. This includes daily walks, coat brushing if needed, baths and sleeping indoors (such as on one of the kid's beds) if this is what your dog is used to. I am also happy to administer medicines your dog needs.
I can also visit your home to look after your pet, feed them, take them for walks and do other jobs if you can't be at home for a while for whatever reason. I'd be happy to meet you beforehand and discuss what you need.
We have had guinea pigs previously and are also happy to look after smaller pets. We have secure guinea pig hutches and a larger chicken / small animal pen suitable for smaller animals to live in.
Jude looked after my puppy for 2 days - communication was excellent (I received lots of photos) and you treated our family member just like your own. Thankyou!!!
Jude and her family looked after our Maggie for a month while we were travelling. They did a great job and seemed to truly embrace her as a family member. Jude kept us we informed as to how Maggie was doing and coping with our absence. We would happily have Jude look after Maggie again. Thanks Jude and family xx
I hold a Working With Vulnerable People card, a requirement of which is a police check. I can combine pet care with thoughtful home services for when you can't be at home and am happy to meet you beforehand to discuss what you need.
