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 29, and I'm the proud mama of a gentle giant named Luna, a crazy little ball of fluffy energy named Charlie, and an 8 foot coastal carpet python named Percy - we also share our home with my housemate's cat, Severus (who I’m sure was a dog in a past life)! 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, the RSPCA, a boarding kennel, and a dogwash business, and have been offering my dog-sitting services for almost a year now.
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 housemate CJ.
I work nights so am home during the day and therefore available to give your furbaby the love and attention it needs and deserves when you aren't able. When I’m out CJ is home, as well as the around-the-clock company of my two furbabies. They have never met an animal they haven’t liked, and they provide the perfect yin and yang - Luna is the relaxed, easy going one, while Charlie is always up for a game. They are the perfect doggy friends!
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 and Charlie 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!
We left our fur baby Kuro with Bree-Anna for the first time for 3 weeks over the Christmas period. I must say that we were a little nervous leaving her with a stranger for that period of time as Kuro is what you would call a bit of a “princess” and thinks she is a human. Kuro had a ball and I can’t speak highly enough of the care she received while in Bree-Anna’s care ... she even came home with Christmas presents that weren’t from us. I would highly recommend her services, thanks again for everything Bree-Anna and co. 😀
Bree-Anna was great with our two labradooles the yard has plenty of space and they had so much fun with her two dogs Luna & Charlie. Bree communicated when our eldest one was a bit panicky and she sorted the problem quickly. Nothing was a problem, we had to give the eldest one antibiotics for the stay and she wasn’t fazed at all. Highly recommend her to look after your pet our dogs came home very happy from their holiday.
