Hello. We are called Digi-dogs as we will send you photos of our wonderful adventures every day. I adore dogs .... all breeds and personalities... most of the best people I meet are dogs!! When asked if I have any hobbies, my response is always dogs!! I do have the extra time, space and energy to give your loved one a holiday of their own. I am an experienced dog sitter and had dogs all my life. I also do foster care for Homeward Bound. My staffie lived until she was 19 very happily and still enjoying her walks. Testimony to the fact that I certainly know how to care for dogs .....seniors as well. In any week, we go to dog parks, creeks, the river, Mt Crawford, reserves, parkland, reserves and of course walking around our quiet area leaving lots of wee-mails. We adjust what we do for anyone that comes to visit. I would certainly not charge for dog walking if your loved one came with us .... only if you wanted them to have a special individual walk. I would have your pups on leads for our adventures except I might let them off in the doggie park if they felt comfortable. That's something we can chat about.
My dogs are both rescues. The larger one is Boof (lab x staffie) and he is an incredibly chilled dog even if it means letting a friend's pup use his back legs as a chew toy!! Becky the beagle is a little timid when first meeting new dogs but loves the extra company and all the joys of dog parks. Both my dogs get the best vet care and are fully vaccinated, wormed and on flea prevention... they have not had fleas except when I first got Becky. I am a teacher/Principal and currently working only 3 days a week but I will be fulltime by the end of the year. I do as much as possible with my dogs. If I go to see family or friends, they come with me and of course, we Google for any local dog parks for that extra experience. My yard is large, well secured with a doggy door going into the house. My house has air conditioning/heating and an old fish pond that Becky loves to splash around in under the ferns on a hot day. We live on a very quiet, safe street and know all our neighbours. We look out for each other. However, I do lock all gates to be extra careful. I am happy and able to dog sit at short notice and as a once off. However, returning doggie visitors not only the joy of being all together again but you receive the discount price of $20 per day/night with just $8 for an additional dog. Come join us soon for a 'meet and greet' at our place or a playdate on common ground :)
We are also about to welcome a third dog into our house - playful and sweet Uly is a bundle of cuddles and snuggles with an exremely good temperment. He recently helped a rescue dog adapt and become ready for a forever home. This included the other dog biting and snapping at Uly quite a few times. Not once did Uly retaliate or hold a grudge .... he just could not understand why the other dog did not like him!! Uly is getting ready for an out back adventure all of July and August. However, when Uly is home it means that if I am working, it is very possible that Uly's owner will be home meaning extra care for your furbaby :)
We left our border collie Mika with Megan for three days. I had a good feeling after our meet and greet that we would leave Mika with a really good sitter. Throughout the three days. and prior, we had brilliant communication and lots of amazing photos, we were able to enjoy our weekend knowing that Mika was safe and happy, although I feel we should make some apologies for Mika taking over the sleeping places of her new doggy friends and even the adults, sorry Luke ! Mika and I hope we will see you again, thank you so much for taking care of our Mika.
Megan was a wonderfully patient, committed sitter for our energetic puppy cattle dog. It’s clear she loves dogs and takes her responsibility seriously. She sent updates and stories daily showing his adventures out on walks and to the dog park, sometimes twice a day. Thanks you Megan for taking such care and interest in our dog.
