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)
1 medium male kelpie X 10yrs old "Buddy"
1 large female labrador retriever 8yrs old "Bella"
All are indoor doggies with outside and inside access every day.
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:
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 (25 - 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.
For any of our regulars, if the bookings aren't available for the time that you want, please get in touch with me to discuss as we may be able to help you out anyway.

Sharon took excellent care of our furbaby! She sent photos and videos of his stay, was always prompt with communication answering all our questions, she let us pop over before we booked to inspect her place and for our dog to meet her dogs. She has the sweetest dogs who made our little guy feel comfortable and enjoy his stay. Our dog needed to be on a new medication last minute and Sharon offered to give them to him, no questions asked. We were able to drop him off and pick him up when we were ready which made our trip a lot less stressful too. She is a lot more affordable than kennels and other sitters we have found. Will definitely be rebooking!
Charli had a great time with Sharon and was very spoilt. Sharon sent me photos n videos of Charli over the weekend and Charli looked so very happy.
I have never left my baby girl with anyone ( outside of family ) but I tell you what , I’m so greatful for Sharon and her love for my baby Charli.
Would definitely use Sharon again n know that I don’t have to worry about my baby being cared for.
Thank You so very much Sharon. 🦋😉💐
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.
