About MANDY

Hello everybody, my name is Mandy. 

I am a full time House and Pet Sitter servicing Geelong & around the Bellarine Peninsula. After studying vet science and tech in my early 20s I have volunteered with dog rescue organisations and worked part time grooming and dog walking.

Once moving to Geelong I decided to focus on Full time pet care.  

I have experience handling dogs and caring for different breeds. I have walked the tiniest of Miniature Pinscher and Italian Greyhounds to Maremma and Wolf hounds. 

I tend to specialise in spending quality time with senior pooches who require some 1 on 1 gentle attention, pats, short strolls and brushing or bathing. ( However I do not offer full grooming ) 

Services which I offer are - 

Dog walks : Approx $38 for 1hr 30minutes. with 15minutes driving time) No more than 3 dogs at once. 

I can sometimes offer  *Daycare in my own home, please enquire 

  • $68 daycare for 6hours (this service is not always available) and Dogs must be picked up before 6.30pm on week days*
  • $40 - for 1 SINGLE HOME VISIT, driving to your home (local area Geelong) Checking in on cats or dogs - ensuring they have food and plenty of fresh water, cleaning and tipping up kitty litter and a short play, or cuddle with your dogs or cats. 
  • $58 - for TWO HOME VISITS includes 2x feeding and backyard playtime.
  • *Evening feeding - single home visits before 8.30pm.

    I enjoy spending my time with animals and feel I have a lot of love and kindness to offer them. I will always endeavour to ensure they are calm, comfortable, happy and feel safe at all times whilst in my care. 

    If you work long hours or have been planning a trip away I will happily visit your dog/s for his  feeding & walking regime that suits all of your needs. If you are getting older or need to go into hospital due to an illness or injury , I would really like to take your pup out for some exercise and a play at the park, beach, river or local oval. If you have a football game, concert or work event to attend, I'm ready and available! Waiting to hear from you and meet up with your best buddy 🐾🐾

      Mandy is an amazing sitter. Lucy loves going out with her more than even me, she even walks around the house looking for Mandy after she leaves. Lucy is older with health issues, Mandy is very caring and attentive to her needs. Highly recommend
