Hi I’m Natalia and I live in Newport. I have been doing dog minding for almost 3 years and during that time many dogs have become like our family members. I was looking after a variety of dogs – absolutely different breeds, sizes and ages and no doubt your pet also will be surrounded by care and love as if it were my own one. And don’t worry – I will always send you photos of your furry kids.
In Russia (where I am from) I used to volunteer at a dog shelter where we had over 100 abandoned dogs. We were socializing them, walking them and trying to make their tails wag again.
Now we (my husband and I) live in a 4 bedroom house in Newport (Northern beaches) with fully fenced backyard where your dog will love to chase possums and birds. We have a doggy door and even a bedroom for dogs with a door to the backyard which can be left opened all night if your pooch needs it.
I’m a self-employed artist and spend most of my time at home in my studio with a big deck where dogs love to sit and watch the passers-by or play with each other while I’m working.
When it’s a play time we go for a walk. There is a beautiful little dog park 10 mins walk from our house with water access if your doggy loves to swim. Or I take them to Avalon dog park where they can have lots of fun with each other and fetch the ball. But if your dog is not socialized I can just take it for a walk on the lead to the beach or around Newport.
They all sleep inside (even outside dogs, but they have access to the backyard), we watch TV together in the afternoon, they have their own couch and in winter love to sleep in front of the fire. And of course they have daily walks.
I usually do not
take more than 3 dogs at a time (exception – school holidays and public holidays when overlaps can happen) so I can pay plenty attention to each pup. And I always make sure that they are friendly and happy with each other.
Please note that rates for Pet hosting are for 24 HOURS, so if you need to drop off your dog in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon Doggy day care rate will be applied for that day.
All check outs should be done before 9 pm.
Sorry, NO PUPPIES. I love all dogs, especially cute and adorable pups, but every owner knows how much attention little ones need. My work requires concentration, so I can not look after too active and busy pups 24 hours a day, who getting even more playful if other dogs around. Thank you for understanding.
PLEASE Make sure that your dog is house trained, friendly with other dogs and can stay at home by itself, because I spend the most of my time at home, but still not 24 hours. So i want your dog feel comfortable when I have to go out for an hour or two.
If you would like me just to take your dog for a walk or visit your pet in your home while you are away – I am happy to do it.
Walks usually take up to 1 hour - in the park or on the lead. Pick up/drop off and plenty of treats included!
Feel free to contact me.
Thank you Natalia for looking after Molly so beautifully while we were spending 3 days in Palm Beach for our daughter’s wedding. Thank you also for picking her up after the ceremony which took the stress out of worrying about how to return her to you between ceremony and reception. I also loved that you sent me photos of her sleeping (paws in the air!) on the couch, running in the park and her favourite activity - swimming at the beach! I thought she won’t want to come home! Quite the holiday!! Thanks again!
Natalia was so acconmodating of our requirements and provided us with updates of our pet while we were overseas.
