I registered as an RSPCA foster carer in 2003 til 2015 when my dogsitting business became successful. Mondays 3hrs you'll now find me driving the RSPCA wildlife ambulance shift.
You'll get a family package with 2 adults, 1 teenager, and young active boy, we all get a lot out of caring for k9's. I love reptiles too. Every pooch has a fun and fascinating personality and we like each one as they come; but we give some basic training and the dogs appreciate it when they know what they are allowed to do-also makes it easier on them for return visits. We do provide treats and bones. You provide the dog's preferred food. Your dog will have full access to our laundry during every day and night - a great size small secured yard during the night and moving cars around. We have taken in larger breeds, but this is a very case to case (older; well trained - not negotiable at this stage with our young man ). Perference is small to medium only and family friendly. The dogs have access to a 1/4acre to run around. We allow everyone inside with us. Our laundry is right beside our living area as the sleeping quarters.
Please be aware that if your dear pooch is not used to being home alone during a working day; then we may not be your best carer (I work Tues-Fri).
Best drop days are Sat; Sun; Mon. We are a busy family and sometimes they come along at school pickup; tennis. I will request you complete an info sheet in case of emergency and contact details. Furbaby must have C5 vaccinations up-to-date please. Enquiries welcome anytime and it's best to come and meet us - to get a feel if we suit you and your pooch.
My services include visits to your house in my local area - Saturday, Sunday and Mondays. (Not available Tues-Fri). Visits can be for cats and dogs or other.
Note: school hols and peak can book out early. I'm unavailable Christmas week 20th-1st approx.
Tory was fantastic in looking after our dog, Rosie. She kept us up to date each day by posting photos which we all loved. Rosie was so well looked after, we'll definitely ask Tory to look after her when we go away next time.
Gus has a great time with Tory and her family. He was well looked after
toilet training/mat training. Some basic obedience; provided by RSPCA on various training nights (every couple of years); the most recent completed on 10Sept2015.
