I am a mature, quiet-natured lady. I live with my husband. We moved to our apartment in Sandy Bay in 2016. Prior to this we had a hobby farm south of Hobart, Tas for 19 years. We had dachshunds (our kids), alpacas and also provided agistment for mini ponies.
We both like to travel so reluctant to have any more dogs of our own for now. Dog minding and dog walking allows me to enjoy the companionship of dogs in-between our travels. 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, from 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. When I go into the office, your pupper can come along too, so your dog won't ever be without company.
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 provided the absolute best care for our Jack Russell x 'Angie'. I was so happy when I received update photos throughout the day, to see how much Angie was enjoying her stay. She enjoyed walks, playtime and treats and is very keen to return for another stay! Thank you Rose!
Rose was wonderful in caring for our little Doxie and understanding his particular care needs. It’s very obvious how much Rose loves dogs. She was very professional and helped us feel confident from the start that our boy would be well looked after. We’ve already booked her again for a longer stay and we highly recommend Rose as a sitter.
