I’m a 29 years old educational psychology PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne. Dogs have been the greatest source of joy in my life ever since I can remember and I’ve lived with and taken care of 1 up to 5 dogs since the age of 12. I’ve taken care of a Boxers, French Mastiffs, Pugs, Wolfgounds, Spaniels, Labradors and Golden Retrivers and can’t wait to meet more of them and many new breeds. The welfare of dogs and their happiness is primary for me and before the first walk or stay, I would like to discuss their likes, dislikes, needs, personality etc. in details to make sure that the time they spend with me is as good for them as it’ll be for me. Alma Park is probably my favourite place in St Kilda because all the coolest people (erm...dogs) assemble there and since is close to where I live, I can walk your dogs there.
Dog walking- I can walk your dogs for 30 minutes twice a day- before 9am and/or after 6pm. If you have a pooch who needs more exercise, we can figure out a longer slot too. If I am visiting your place to feed your dog, a similar time can be arranged. Weekends are more flexible. Boarding- I live in a 1 bedroom unit with a huge lounge very close to Alma Park. I am a student and stay at uni for 8 hours as I’ve normal working hour requirements but it’s quite flexible. By and large though, for long term stays, I can only take care of dogs who are used to staying alone through the day (unless there’s a special need like health or adjustment issues on particular days). Other than uni, I shall spend my evenings and mornings with your dog.
Toilet training is very vital as my flat has carpets everywhere and I can’t afford to pay for accidents on the house owner’s carpet. As far as your dog’s sleeping arrangement is concerned we can decide upon it depending on what they are used to. I don’t like to restrict animals within the house as long as they are safe- so they are as welcome on the sofa and bed as they are on the floor. We have a little balcony where previous dogs have enjoyed chilling during the day.
Please have a look at the photos to understand the setup better and you’re welcome to have a look at my place before making any decisions. There’s a vet’s clinic very close to my place too in case of emergencies. I can also cook for your dog if kibble isn’t their preferred diet.
Neha was wonderful! Although I booked her somewhat last minute she was very easy to coordinate with. She was great with my cat.
Neha is always so accomodating and Sierra just loves her company!!
