I am a mature, quiet-natured lady. I live with my husband, Mike.
For 19 years we had a hobby farm south of Hobart, Tas. We had dachshunds (our kids) and also alpacas and mini ponies. We moved to our apartment in Sandy Bay in 2016. We both like to travel so are reluctant to have any more dogs of our own for now.
Dog minding and dog walking allows me to enjoy the companionship of dogs as well as being able to travel more. When I am away, either with Michael or on my own, I love to housesit where there are puppers to look after.
I have cared for many breeds, puppies to seniors and also some special needs dogs (blind, deaf, IVDD disabled, dementia and other illnesses). I completed a Pet CPR and First Aid Course in 2017 through PetTech.
Our apartment is a warm, sunny, calm and peaceful environment, just a short walk from the beach. It's a cosy space and there's not much room for running around, so suitable for smaller and/or non-boisterous dogs only. We have a small yard/garden at the back and a deck off our living room. I love to walk so your pupper will get lots of outings to Sandy Bay beach and to a nearby park/reserve. I work part-time for a not for profit organisation and can do much of my work from home, so your dog won't ever be without company. When I go into the office, your pupper can come along too.
I only care for one dog at a time (or two if they are from the same family) so your dog will enjoy all the attention, with lots of smooches, puppy massage, tummy rubs, and of course, intelligent conversation :-)
I'm looking forward to meeting you and your best pal.
Rose was amazing! Pikelet my little sausage dog was so happy when I picked her up. Rose and pikelet seemed like the best of friends and so we will definitely be back! Thank you Rose!!
