I am Meg McKenzie, 24 years old from a country town who has a great energy level, work ethic and of course a love of dogs and cats alike. I live with my partner and puppy (7months on 26th March) Rajah in Keysborough in a house with a spacious back yard. We are also ridiculously close to our local dog park! We take our puppy Rajah for at least one walk a day, if we're tuckered out we'll take him to the local dog park which is within a 5-minute walk! Getting him out to explore the world is one of our highest priorities. If your dog stays with us overnight or simply for a walk him/her we'll take them with Rajah (if we can) and have adventures!
Our walks are usually on average an hour each, if on a weekend we'll take him on a dog-friendly hike or to the dog beach which can be anywhere between 2-4 hours. At present, I am comfortable walking two dogs at a time, so if you have one dog I'd love to bring Rajah along if you're open to it. If you have two dogs I am comfortable walking them simultaneously. If you have more than two I suppose I'll be making two or more trips!
We offer overnight boarding! there are heaps of photos of our place on my profile. Our backyard will house a maximum of 3 dogs, so unfortunately if you have more than two dogs that need care, our place may not be the best option for you.
Goes without saying that we'll work to whatever feeding schedule your pup/s might be on although we do request that you supply us with their preferred food so as to avoid any tummy upsets with a sudden diet change.
Please also let us know of any allergies so we don't treat him/her with anything that could make them feel ill.
Your pup/s can stay in either the Bedroom, the Laundry or the Backyard which is obviously fully fenced (although we only have one kennel). This will depend on how well your pup gets on with Rajah and your personal preference etc. we will discuss upon booking your pet in for a stay.
We offer Doggy day-care! We can host up to 4 dogs in our home at one time. The days this service is available depends on the working schedule as the days I spend in my office vary from week to week.
House visits! I am happy to make two visits to your place, at which depending on what you need I'll feed and play (walk if you like) your furry friend/s.
If during their stay your dog requires training in the Basics, i.e. sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it and take it, I am well equipped to assist you in your training, just let me know your command words and I'll do what I can to help.
Our house rules. No people food, no pets on the furniture (i.e. no sleeping with us on the bed, and no couch cuddles).
When taking bookings, we would much prefer a meet and greet beforehand to get to know you and your pet and answer any further questions you may have. This also allows us to assess the compatibility of our dogs and allow them to get comfortable. My partner and I are both working full-time (part-time at home). I work roughly 3 days at home and my partner works 2 days at home. When looking for a temporary companion for your furry friend, don't hesitate to give me a buzz
Meg was fantastic with my 2 puppies whilst they stayed with her for 4 days. Communication was excellent and Meg kept me up to date and reassured me with photos and messages. My puppies played and made friends with her gorgeous dog Rhaja.
I will definitely leave them with her again next time we go away. She was amazing!
