About Nina

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to browse my profile. I hope you find what you are looking for, for your treasured furry/feathery family member.

I am 32 years of age and am an avid animal lover with a special love of dogs. I have grown up with pets of all kinds and at 14 years of age, started my own dog walking and pet & house sitting business in my small neighbourhood. I presently have one dog, Fergus (6 year old Irish Terrier - medium sized dog of about 18 kg) who is the light of my life. He is well socialised, has attended obendience classes & loves playing with other dogs, although not those that are overly boisterous. He is also very good with small dogs, and regularly plays with my Mum's little pomchi (pomeranian x chihuahua). We regularly visit the North Adelaide Dog Park (fully fenced dog park with one section for small dogs under 15 kg and one section for all dogs), and go for walks around the streets of Prospect. I am happy to provide dog walking service for your pooch during their stay, should you require. Your doggie will be treated as a loved member of my little family during his/her stay with me.

I have a fully fenced large back yard with a grassy area for your pooch to run and play around freely during the day, a variety of dog toys, sheltered veranda complete with dog baskets and an insulated kennel, and in hot weather I set up a doggie wading pool so the pooches can cool off after playing. Accordingly, you need only bring your doggie's food during any overnight stays with me (as it is better for him/her to stay on his/her regular diet so as not to experience tummy upsets) and lead, although I suggest it may comfort your dog to have some familiar bedding brought with them also.

My sister is a vet and while distance means she cannot treat Fergus or any doggie guest she is just a phone call away for advice in non-emergency situations.

Fergus is desexed, fully vaccinated, wormed, flea & tick treated and registered with the local council so I request that your doggie is also desexed (including male dogs) up to date with vaccines and flea/tick treatment and registered with your own council. Please bring proof of desexing and c5 vaccination to meet and greet. Understandably, your pooch will need to be friendly with other dogs.

I am happy to accommodate outdoor or indoor sleeping, and feeding up to twice per day (morning and/or evening). If you have any other special requests, you are welcome to discuss these with me also.

I am also happy to accommodate boarding of birds or small animals who will be housed on my front veranda so as to be kept away from Fergus (to prevent stressing your small animal family member) or inside the house, and can do house visits to homes in nearby locations while you are away on holidays.

I look forward to meeting you and your doggie or other animal family member.

I was very pleased with Nina's care of my fur baby Otto. When I picked him up at the end of his stay he seemed happy and relaxed. Would definitely recommend Nina to other people as her approach was always professional and she is very caring with her own dog as she was with Otto.
