About Kate

EAST ST KILDA

....... I live in a sunny apartment

with a courtyard and your

little ones are never lonely as I work from home so am home most of the time.

I take a lot of care making sure they

will be happy and comfortable here

and are part of the family, so

they soon

know that they are safe and loved.

it's a very easy going

atmosphere as

animals are my passion and I will do just about anything for them.

For several years I have been doing

dog minding and walkies so have

come to understand

different needs

and

personalities and how very much a guest

dog particularly needs reassurance.

All the dogs here sleep inside at night usually in the bedroom and are never shut outside,

and

they can come and go into the secure courtyard

as they like.

They have the full run of the place all the time, and plenty of play and/or snuggles

next to me on the couch or bed.

I have myself 2

chihuahas who get along with most dogs, so I do prefer to mind smaller

dogs only.

.

WALKIES-

We go to Alma Park around the corner which is big and fenced,

or walks around the leafy streets,

and depending on your wishes they usually have 2 walkies a day.

With longer stays I'll

provide you

with regular photos and updates

Dog Boarding
Katie, 2019-07-23

Kate was lovely in person and her home was a wonderful setting for Toby. Both of her dogs were lovely to Toby. The only issue was that i organised a pickup for 9pm and Kate kept calling me at 7.30pm while i was at work, asking where i was and why no one was here to pick Toby up, calling me rude numerrous times and leaving numerous voice messages and missed calls. She also complained that Toby had been there for too long, even though i paid for home boarding and he had only been there since 12pm that afternoon. When my partner went to pick up Toby, Kate made a comment about how rude i had been, even though i had been very clear about the pick up time even before i finalised the booking. Toby also seemed anxious and couldnt relax when he got home. The whole ordeal was very stressful.

FEEDBACK FROM SITTER: I'm sorry that Katie felt the need to make such a bewildering review. The beginning is glowing then it is a total contradiction. I sensed that Katie had a couple of issues when I first met her and felt for her, but of course didn't know how this would be to my detriment. She was well over an hour late delivering Toby with no communication, and I missed an appointment. During the day I sent updates and photos of her little dog who had a ball here. and was quite sleepy when picked up. Then she kept extending the pickup time and we settled on 9pm as I explained that I had another appointment, yet pick up again was nearly an hour late, with no communication. Hence my voicemails and another appointment cancelled. I am very flexible with times and have bent over backwards to help in the past, as my feedback will show, but of course there needs to be contact. . ,

Lucy was very happy with her stay at Kate's.

I'm sure she will be happy to stay again when needed.
