About Brendan

*** 01/02/22- *Happy Lunar New Year! Hope everyone has enjoyed their holiday seasons.*

* Distance Requests: Please read my T&C's at the bottom. While I do accommodate distance requests, they do incur an extra charge due to the increasing expenses in servicing distant areas. This is why I have a general limit of 8kms travel. Distance requests greater than 8kms distance may be charged up to $2/km over 8kms, variable on distance and travel requirements.*

*T&C's are listed at the end of this section to provide key information relating to my services.* Brendan ***

I routinely discuss dog behaviour, training and psychology with my clients, with the aim of helping their pets with long term goals and growth, more than looking at my job as just pet care. I also enjoy lounging around with affectionate cats, when they want some company. I now work with animals through Pawshake every day, and previously volunteered with the RSPCA just to get to spend time with, and help out, animals. I enjoy being physical outdoors, and light jogging, especially with a dog. While volunteering at shelters, I took care of cleaning, feeding, grooming and walking the refuge's cats, dogs, rabbits and chickens, and also did photography for the refuge's website. We have adopted a stray kitten, so home boarding is generally limited to CATS. I'm keen to meet all of your pets and help with exercise, training, caring for your animals, and offering you peace of mind while you're away. I look forward to meeting with you and your animal family. 

PLEASE NOTE (General TERMS and CONDITIONS) 

- Home Boarding is no longer offered, except for CATS that I have already cared for previously. 

House Sitting is generally preferred and recommended for dogs.

- Generally, I limit my area to 8kms of my home in Sunshine West. Requests from further than 8kms will incur a extra fee of up to $2/km over 8kms to cover the extra expenses I incur in servicing your area. Thank you for understanding. 

- Initial "Meet and Greet" is complimentary, as per Pawshake's general conditions, within a certain distance. Meet and greets at large distances, additional meetings, key pickup, requests for walks, or any other post-Meet-and-Greet/pre-bookings may require a booking or additional charge. I may request to have a meet and greet somewhere in the middle if it is not reasonable to travel the entire way at my own expense. 

- There may be a small extra charge on major public holidays and over Christmas and New Years. 

- Overnight house sitting is overnights, and not full 24 hour, permanent care. I am still required to leave at my discretion to provide care for other animals, or do regular daily activities. 

- While day care is not available, for repeat clients, I do offer dog-sitting options with notice. I consider this similar to baby-sitting, where the hours requested are fixed, and the requirements limit my care to your pet only. In these cases, I charge $25/hour, minimum of 2 hours. Prices may vary based on your animal(s), request and duration, time of day/night, or distance. (REPEAT CLIENTS ONLY) 

Thank you, and I look forward to meeting with you and your family!

I have booked Brendan for a number of occasions over the last few years and he is always so patient and attentive with our two little dogs. He has a great understanding of health issues in dogs, and keeps you up to date with how they're going at each visit. I always appreciate Brendan's feedback on managing the health and behaviour of my dogs when we're away and know they're in good hands.
