Hi all pet parents!
To start off..my partner and I love dogs and have adopted 2 staffyx (male n female), now aged 4&5. Child free household. At the moment we are only taking bookings for dogs boarding. Can do home visits for cats or other pets.
Our daily routine which we adhere to strictly is taking the dogs out for a walk in the morning everyday (at least 30mins) and of course we will bring your dogs as well! The more the merrier! This was an issue for us going away as the dogs need their exercise and family and friends might not have the time to take the dogs everyday.
The dogs go out in the backyard during the afternoon for a bit and sleep with us in the room at night. Most of the day, the dogs will be lazing in the lounge room baking under the sun.
Occasionally, they get a marrow bone to chew on and dried treats like sardines, lamb lung and turkey necks as well as human-grade raw beef mince at night. We are very strict with what we feed the dogs and understand how important it is to some owners. Dogs will be fed separately. Please let us know at the meet and greet regarding your dogs' diet and habits so that we can provide the same amount of comfort for your dogs. (able to fridge/freeze your pet's fresh food)
Photos and updates on dogs will be sent regularly as per request.
Mason is corgi X staffy, gentle and chilled, always happy to sit on his own under the sun. Zelda is staffy x (Kelpie likely) and is very affectionate, follows us everywhere and always want to play 24/7, will be well suited with another friendly dog. She can be picky over who she gets along with but when it hits off, she will stick to your furbaby all the time. Both are medium-sized.
We thought it would be a good idea to socialize our dogs, meet other dogs and help out people who had the same problem as us - a trustworthy person to look after our pets. We had a cat staying in our home for 2 years so we are aware of care for cats too.
House boarding-charged 24hrs block/agreed hours (at mine, free walk and play!)
House visit 30mins- happy to help out the house (taking in/out bins n collecting letters, cleaning after and caring for your pets)
Dog walks-30mins (within 3km or negotiated)
We have performed basic first aid for our dogs when they are gagging and have managed to have them vomit. We have a reference at home for dogs first aid but will definitely send your dogs to seek immediate professional attention if an emergency occurs. We have trained our dog's basic commands, a few tricks, groomed and toilet trained them.
We accept vaccinated n flea-free dogs only. Happy to accommodate and work around requests such as the only dog during the booking period, taking your dogs to certain areas they enjoy but they will be on a leash all the time as we want your furbabies to be safe unless advised otherwise, long term discount of more than 2 weeks and basically just anything you wish to discuss.
Booking subject to successful meet and greet with our dogs for the benefit of all. Looking forward to meeting you!
Jacelyn took care of our two furr babies (cats) for 20 days and I cannot fault the service we received.
Our cats are indoor and have special feeders and different food but this was no problem for Jacelyn which made us feel confident leaving our furr babies in capable hands!
Throughout our trip, we received daily photos of the cats and updates on how everything was going. Knowing they were safe and happy kept us at ease.
Due to covid we had to extend our time away for another 5 days. During this stressful time Jacelyn did everything she could to ensure the cats were okay, checking they had enough food and litter for the extra days.
The care of our cats is our number 1 priority and Jacelyn went above and beyond to care for them and we are extremely grateful. We will definitely be booking again.
Jacelyn was absolutely fantastic with our two cats, keeping us updated every day with photos and comments. She even made a best friend out of our older cat who is usually really unsure of strangers. Would definitely use her again!
