Sharon & Steve's Canine Services -
Formerly known as Crazy Dog Lady!
Hi, my name is Sharon, I am available along with my partner Steve, who lives with me, to help you out. I am also a registered foster carer with Golden Oldies Animal Rescue.
I have 2 dogs of my own (medium and large)
I live in a townhouse with a small back yard with fake grass. I have a small plastic dog pool I fill with water and put out in the warmer weather for the dogs to use for drinking, playing in and cooling down My backyard is fully fenced, secure and is pet friendly.
I have a Furbo dog camera that allows us to watch the dogs when they think they are not being watched, communicate with them through the camera, listen to them and give them treats. This allows them to be themselves whilst we are in the next room over or out in the back yard and allows us to interact with them still.
Dogs are welcome to sleep inside and outside. (Backyard, garage, inside in the lounge room)
Services I have on offer:
Please note - if you want your dog/s staying overnight and want us to walk them - there will be a package we can put together for overnight care and walking.
Pick up fee for us to pick your dog/s up from you and take them back to our place (depending on which suburb you live in) is between $10 - $20 (can be negotiated on for subsequent pick ups and drop offs)
Drop off fee for us to drop your dog/s to you from our place (depending on which suburb you live in) is between $10 - $20 (can be negotiated on for subsequent pick ups and drop offs)
- Feed your dogs at your place and change their water (15 - 30mins)
- 2 x Feeds for your dogs at your place and change their water (30-45mins)
- Walk your dogs from your place and my place, or if there is a dog friendly park we will take them there and run them silly (30mins)
- Look after your dogs only at my place inclusive of overnight. Your dog/s can sleep inside or outside depending on what is best suited, I will let you guide me on that one.
Although I have trained Buddy to a reasonable point, I am not a professional trainer but I can teach your dogs the basics like sit, stay, down, drop (drop the tennis ball when playing fetch - this would take longer than a 2 night/day stay depending on the dog).
If you choose to have your dog stay with me, they would be able to stay socialised by mixing with my 2 dogs.
Steve and I have nothing but the utmost respect for dogs and how they can be a great part of our lives and family.
We promise we will always treat your dogs as if they were our own.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
* We can do emergency care but only for dogs who have stayed with us before overnight or daycare.
* Meet and greets are a requirement, not a choice if you choose us. This way you, Steve and I can all make sure that we are the best fit for your dog/s and that both your dog/s and mine will be safe in the time they spend together under the same roof.

Sharon has gone over and beyond looking after Chocolate, I received almost daily pictures and videos which really put me at ease and nothing was too much trouble for Sharon, all interactions with Sharon were answered and responded to promptly, Chocolate actually made himself very much at home which was great to see, I will be using Sharon the next time I have to go away as I know he will get 1st class treatment, I will highly recommend her to all of my friends who have dogs.
Sharon and Steve was great with our dog phoenix. She treated phoenix as if she was apart of the family. I got lots of videos and pics of her enjoying her stay and it was very reassuring that she was in good hands. Phoenix will be back for some more fun.
20+ years experience as my family has always had dogs so I've grown up with them.
I have had Buddy, who is a rescue dog, since moving into my townhouse many years ago and Bella, also a rescue dog, since 2014 and Rocky, my 14 year old little old man foster puppy, since May 2018. (note: Rocky crossed the rainbow bridge in March 2019)
I love the company of dogs, I feel that they make you smile on sometimes what seems like the worst of days to you. They're great company, bring loads of joy and are a big part of the family.
