About Andrea

I'm a former boxer dog owner and my partner Luke is an animal lover (he's previously had cats. We're working through it). We look after medium and big dogs (especially boxers and retrievers!). Smaller tiny dogs, cute though you are, our preference is to look after the big dudes.

We're both very responsible and caring and love all animals. We have a car that doesn't mind a dog or two, and though we'd absolutely love a dog of our own, we travel fairly frequently, so now is not the right time and we’re loving looking after others' dogs instead!

We'll treat your dog like a king/queen, and know how scary it is to have someone else take care of your pet, we're happy to send you photo updates and keep in touch by text as much as you like. I run my own business from home so I'll keep your dog company during the day and take him/her for walks at the fully fenced dog park nearby.

We're available for dog walking, dog sitting, dog day care and dog homestays/ overnight, weekend & longer holiday stays. Our house is a large two story townhouse with a small grass yard out the back, fully fenced with a 2m high wooden fence, even the most ninja of jumping dogs will be safe inside. I've included a couple of photos of our house and backyard so you can see where your dog will be hanging out. We're a short walk from two off-leash dog parks and love taking dogs for a run around. We’ve looked after boxers, retrievers, staffys, great danes, brittanys, and boxer-staffy crosses.

Andrea looked after my two border collies (one being a puppy) for 5 nights. It was the first time I was able to leave them with a stranger without any worry! Andrea made me feel comfortable with leaving them with her. She sent regular photos and updates and genuinely cared and showed interest in them! It is such a relief to be able to find the perfect pet sitter.
