About Alexandra

I will look after your pet like he/she is my own, giving them the love and attention they deserve ❤️

I find that pets really love their people and home care option which I really enjoy providing.

I grew up in the country and loved looking after a number of pets and animals. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology and love animals and gardening. 

I have a large house in Riverton with a huge backyard and garden with space to explore. The backyard is fully enclosed with high fence. Guest doggo's love running around the big backyard garden.

I'm experienced with rescue animals having completed several fostering assignments with RSPCA which I really enjoyed. Happy to contribute to any obedience lessons that you may be taking your dog through. 

I have a very sweet Kelpie x Collie dog named Ruby. Ruby has been with me since she was a tiny 6-week-old rescue pup. Ruby has the most beautiful nature, very submissive, playful and absolutely loves all other dogs, the very biggest softie. She has loved all of her doggy playmates who have stayed for doggy vacations. Ruby has been through obedience school (L1 &L2), she is fully vaxxed and also de-sexed.

Ruby loves to play and I know any dogs I look after will return at the end of the day tired and happy! Even if doggy guests doesn't want to play, Ruby is content just to watch them (the "kelpie-watch" is very entertaining). Of course any feeding times for doggo's are done completely separately.

To note about my services:

-Happy for doggy guests to access both inside and outside of the house.

- For overnighters, dog guest bedding is usually set up in a spare room (my dog Ruby will sleep separately in her bed in the laundry)

-I usually take only one booking at a time.

- I walk Ruby at least once every day to one of the nearby dog parks (three nearby). Your dog is welcome to come with us on our daily walk if you wish to.

-I support Pawshake's meet and greet recommendation for 1st time bookings. Evenings and weekends suit best.

-When making a booking request, the first contact always comes through as an enquiry-only: so I can first confirm a meet and greet. Please feel free to make an enquiry first to initiate contact, and I can organise a meet and greet at a convenient time for you. 

If you'd like to know anything else please ask :)

We would like to sincerely thank Alexandra for her amazing care of our Syd. We were kept updated with photos during Syd's stay with Alexandra and can tell he had the time of his life! Syd was such a lucky boy to receive such wonderful care, lots of love, pats and walks and even made best friends with Alexandra's gorgeous doggo.

We highly recommend Alexandra and will be back to book Syd in with Alexandra on our next holiday!
