Hello, My name is Rhonda.
I have always had pets - mostly cats and dogs.
Throughout my married life and while raising children, I have tended to have labradors and more recently we have fallen in love with golden retrievers.
I love that each animal has its own unique personality and I am constantly amazed at the sensitivity our dogs show in various situations.
My husband and I are semi-retired and live on an acre at Mt Crosby so there is lots of room for our dogs to run around. the yard is fully fenced with very secure gates.
We have a modern brick and tile home.
We have hens and the neighbours have goats so it is quite a semi-rural area in a way.
Our dogs are part of the family and are allowed inside (except when we are cleaning the floor).
They are happy to sleep on our expansive deck at night and have both indoor and outdoor beds.
Your furry friends will not be short of attention as we are at home for most of the day.
I have a part-time teaching job which takes me out of the house for three mornings a week but I am always home before midday.
We do not have a lot of social commitments so have good availability to accept newcomers.
We have several regular little visitors who quickly become part of the family and we have heard that sometimes a lone dog will feel a bit sad when they don't have company
when back at home.
We have learned that it is best to introduce our new visitors slowly so an extended visit at the start is recommended.
It is also good to bring some familiar toys and your pet's bedding arrangements too.
Owners most often supply the preferred diet for their fur babies.
visitors will sleep on
the deck with our two retrievers
and cat visitors
will remain inside at night.
Our doggie Zee had a great time on his own little holiday with Rhonda’s two dogs. It’s the first time we’ve left him before and he was at home on the initial meet and greet and when we arrived to drop him off. Rhonda kept us updated how well he was enjoying it, along with pics. Rhonda was also extremely helpful when we had to delay our return by a couple of days due to a medical condition. Will definitely use Rhonda and her services again in the future.
Our Owey had a great time with Rhonda and her family and dogs. He was very happy when picked up and seemed to have been playing most of his time there. It makes it much easier going on holiday, when you know your precious fur child is safe and sound, and we definitely felt he was with Rhonda. 10/10
As I am a teacher and a community volunteer I have a blue card for working with children and have a recent police check for my volunteer work.
