Due to some issues I’ve had with dogs harassing my housemate’s cat, I am only accepting small dogs or dogs that you can guarantee are good with cats. If you’re not sure, or your dog has no experience with cats then I won’t be able to be of assistance.
I'm Bree, I'm 28, and I'm the proud mama of a 3-year-old Great Dane x Mastiff named Luna, and a 12-year-old coastal carpet python named Percy - we also share our home with my housemate's cat, Severus, a Ragdoll x Norwegian Forest. I've been surrounded by animals since before I could walk, and have been lucky enough to share my life with a menagerie of different critters, including dogs, cats, sheep, ducks, rabbits, rats, parrots, lizards, snakes, and even hermit crabs!
Aside from a lifetime of experience with pets, I have also partaken in formal volunteer work at a wildlife park, a boarding kennel, and a dogwash business, and have done sporadic petsitting for friends, family and neighbours.
My home set up involves a very pet-friendly house with two yards, front and back. Lots of grass to run around on, some trees and plants for shade, as well as a double shed, a back deck and a front porch. The property is fully fenced with 6ft fences at the back and 3ft fencing at the front. The yards are separated by 6ft gates either side of the house, so the animals are confined to the safety of the house and backyard when left to their own devices, and given free range of the property when in the company of myself and/or my two housemates.
I only work part time so am home much of the week and therefore available to give your furbaby the love and attention it needs and deserves when you aren't able. Even if I'm not home, one or both of my housemates are usually here, as well as the around-the-clock company of Luna, my gentle giant. She has never met an animal she hasn't liked, and knows when it's okay to play rough and tumble, or when to dial it back a bit. She is the perfect doggy friend!
Because our animals are free to roam about our house as they please, I am not able to petsit any cats, as they wouldn't be confined and I would hate for them to get nervous and take off! Dogs of any shape and size are welcome, as long as they play nice with other dogs and cats. I am also completely comfortable with reptiles, as I have hand-raised my carpet python from a hatchling - he's now 8ft long!
I take Luna to our local enclosed dog park for an hour every day, so would be happy for yours to join us if that's something you/they would be comfortable with. There is a big dog section and a small dog section, for your peace of mind.
I specialise in long term sits, hence my low rate, so no matter what life throws at you you’re able to find a safe, loving temporary home for your furry family member. I will feed to your specifications, exercise daily, bathe and medicate if required, and your pup will always have a comfy bed to sleep in with someone to cuddle up with at night.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to providing you the best pet sitting experience you will find!
Lollie has a fantastic time and was still having an absolute blast when I picked her up! She loved the playtimes with Luna and the cuddles too! Thank you for taking such good care of her for me :-)
Would highly recommend to anyone!!
Charlie had a great time with Bree-anna for over a month. He felt at home and was taken care of brilliantly. Charlie looks forward to his next stay with Bree-anna.
