Hello! My name is Merike :)
I am a qualified Veterinary Nurse. I gained my experience in house sitting large and small dogs, cats, birds as well as small reptiles and fish whilst I was busy completing my Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing.
Since my partner, Edward and I have bought our own place, I have stepped away from house sitting and we have welcomed fur babies into our home for a relaxing and comfortable holiday whilst their humans enjoy their well deserved break.
Both my partner and I absolutely love animals and are caring, loving, trustworthy and respectful. Your fur babies will be treated as part of our family with lots of love and cuddles.
My partner is an Engineer working FIFO and on his off time also flies as a pilot. I work from home and will be able to provide 24/7 supervision and most importantly play time for your fur babies when they are in our care.
We have a small dog named Sassi (Chihuahua Cross) who I rescued when she was 8 weeks old, and a white Cockatiel who enjoys cuddling up to my neck on the couch.
My partner and I live in Scarborough and along with Sassi and Snowie we would love to host your small pet when you are away on holidays or traveling for work. We enjoy daily walks along the coast or to the local dog park or dog beach where Sassi goes to play with her furry friends. On weekends we like to get out in nature and explore all the beautiful dog friendly hiking trails that Perth has to offer.
My hobbies/interests are
I am able to supply character references upon request.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and providing your beloved pets with a caring, stress free environment whilst you enjoy your time away from home.
Please note, I only provide dog boarding for 1 dog (small to medium) at a time or 2 small dogs provided they are from the same household. All services provided are only available for dogs who are well socialised and get along with other furry friends. Individual dog walking may be considered for a dog with socialisation issues, only under some circumstances and consideration.
Archie loved his stay 😎
We have just returned from our holiday to a very happy dog & a well looked after home. Merike was fantastic & I think Frankie is missing her already. A few weeks prior to us leaving, Frankie received emergency care for a serious cough he had contracted, so making sure he was well cared for in our absence was essential. With Merike's experience it was peace of mind he would be given his necessary medication & TLC. We had Merike stay at our home so as Frankie was more relaxed & had a couple of meets beforehand so he would feel familiar. Can't recommend Merike highly enough for a Fabulous job well done & will be keeping in touch when our next holiday comes around (as per Frankie's request too:)
