ABOUT ME

We are a very friendly and calm couple who enjoy hosting pets at our home, allowing you to plan a holiday! I have no pets living here, so your pet gets 100% of my attention. There are no children to stress your pet or distract me from your pet. I have a very quiet home with a modest garden. Safe, clean and tidy and respectful. Your pet can enjoy the peaceful, sunny & sheltered garden, or seek the comfort of the couch while watching their favourite channel inside my cosy home.

We love having our companions sit with us on the couch in the evenings. Even allowed on the bed and allowed to sleep in the bedroom as long as there is no snoring! & must be house trained. If there is any risk of accidents I ask that you supply nappies please and let me know so I can prepare the house. I prefer to take care of pets from one family at a time so I can provide them with the most comfortable routine they are used to.

The garden is modest, private, secure(locked), sheltered, with tall fences. No obnoxious weeds, garden chemicals or pesticides outside. No mice/rat burden in the environment inside or outside.

I am confident with taking care of higher needs pets / complex health conditions. I have a medical student background and hold a Biomedical Science degree. I am quiet and patient. I often receive positive feedback from owners of typically anxious or grumpy pets who have noticed their pet ‘doesn’t seem to mind you’!

I can take care of small ‘pocket’ pets & non-destructive cats and dogs. I grew up on a farm and have owned animals all my life. I have owned mice, guinea pigs, chickens, quail, budgies, rabbits, lizards, fish, cats, dogs, sheep, cows, horses, and donkeys.

HOW TO MAKE A BOOKING

STEP 1:

Create your pets profile. Please include photos. MORE info is better than less.

STEP 2: Select dates.

STEP 3: Send me your enquiry.

Include the following: A brief example of their normal routine for the day. Things like:

Do they usually stay inside or outside? Are they house trained? What average length of time between toilet breaks? Where do they sleep? What is the maximum length of time left alone? Are they allowed on the couch or bed? How do you manage incessant barking? We do need to consider the neighbours if there will be a doggy choir if they are left alone :)

STEP 4: Arrange a Meet & Greet.

STEP 5: Discuss drop off and pick up times.

STEP 6:

Complete the Pawshake intake form & send it to me.

What is the Pawshake Intake Form?

I will require an intake form for all first time clients. Please find this form via the PAWSHAKE website FAQ's. You can send pictures of the completed form via the Pawshake App, or send the document via email.

STEP 7: Make the booking via Pawshake.

Add extra walks, make any adjustments, then follow prompts to confirm.

It is VERY important you confirm your booking to secure your spot. Otherwise other clients may book the same dates because it looks like I am available!

STEP 8: The hard part is done! Now you can prepare your pet and confirm pick up and drop off times. See notes below. Thank you. =)

**********************************************************************************************

HOW TO MEET & GREET

Meet and Greet appointments are free of charge and can be held in person or via online video. I recommend that you arrange a time to visit our home with your pet to make sure they are familiar and comfortable with the new space. This is especially important when you are booking a stay longer than a couple of nights. If your pet is extra nervous I am happy to lend you a blanket from our house before their stay. This may help associate our home with their home.

COVID Considerations ...

Please follow the current COVID safe guidlines at the meet & greet, and when picking up and dropping off. =) Thank you.

**********************************************************************************************

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR PET FOR THEIR STAY

•I ask our clients to consider giving their furry friend a quick bath before their stay, especially if they are medium to long hair dogs who will be staying inside most of the time.

•A dose of flea and worm treatment is highly recommended and appreciated. These little details help keep my home clean and safe for my guests.

•I take pride in caring and maintaining my 'kids' health and upkeep during their stay. We kindly ask for you to supply the following items…

*food & bowl

*bedding

*crate if crate trained

*poop bags

*litter

*pet safe wipes for their eyes and whiskers

*brush

*collar & lead (please make additional bookings for 30min regular walks. Occasional short walks are included as part of the basic stay).

*any medication they need(administering fee will apply if injections).

Optional items include toys, treats, jackets, any other item to help them feel at home.

CANCELLING A BOOKING:

If your booking is cancelled due to a COVID lockdown you will receive a full refund.

Pawshake cancellation policy applies for all other cancellations.

See Pawshake FAQs.

*************************************************************************************************

WELCOME & THANK YOU! I am friendly, flexible and tolerant, despite this very specific and detailed profile! I have written such an extensive profile to make sure we all have the same expectations and to make the experience pleasant. It also helps to waste less of your time. Looking forward to caring for your little treasure. My pets are to be treated as though they are my children.

COVID Considerations ...

Please follow the current COVID safe guidlines at the meet & greet, and when picking up and dropping off. =) Thank you.

We are fully COVID vaccinated.

Cathryn recently looked after our beaglier Rosie while we went on a short holiday. I was a first time Pawshake user and Cathryn was extremely helpful in all areas of using the service. Rosie loved her stay with Cathryn and she will be the first person we contact when we need someone to look after Rosie in the future!
