my name is Emma and ever since I was a baby I have had pets around me, dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
My family are pet lovers and some family members are professional dog breeders and dog showers.
My four-legged dog family have included Schnautzers, Shihtzus, Huskies, Golden Retrievers, Labradors, and King Charles Spaniels.
I am happiest when around four-legged friends and find it hard to walk past a dog without stopping to give it a pat and chatting with its owner.
Over the years I have learnt much about the instinctual nature of dogs, how they behave as pack animals, the hierarchial nature of the pack and how these instinctaul tendencies are displayed even in the solo dog. I am a strong advocate of responsible pet ownership and teach children about how to safely approach and interact with a dog.
I uderstand and can interpret dog behaviour, for example, a dog avoiding eye contact is feeling anxious and uncomfortable and know when a dog may need some distance and time to adjust to new people.
Due to my personal living situation, I am unable to have any dogs in my home but I am happy to come to your's to provide your pet with the love, comfort and care it needs while you're away.
I have stayed over night in other people's homes caring for children and pets while adults are away and am completely trustworthy with people's homes and loved ones.
While in your home I am also happy to do some basic domestic duties such as ironing clothes, house cleaning, weeding etc (extra fees may apply).
Other pet services I can provide include clipping nails, cleaning ears, skin checks, bathing, drying and brushing.
For over night stays, the fee is $50 per night for up to 2 pets, then $20 for every extra pet per night.
Over night stays on Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year's Eve will be charged at a higher rate.
Please note that I only take bookings for dog walking where the dog's location is no more than a 15min drive from my home in Mt Eliza (unless otherwise agreed).
Emma was lovely, she was very kind and solicitous of our elderly diabetic cat who required not only a lot of affection but insulin twice daily!! We also had daily updates of his progress including a video. We would not hesitate to book Emma again
Emma is amazing and I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a petsitter. Her communication is amazing with photo updates of how her and your fur baby are going. I truly believe Emma treated our dog as if it was hers and that's all we could have hoped for
