My name is Charlene and my partner Nick and I have grown up with animals all our lives and we have been in the animal medical industry for more than 5 years now. We recently lost our furbaby girl, Emma (the white greyhound in the picture) to cancer and are not ready to adopt just yet. We recently started with Pawshake as we still have lots of love to give and would love to share it through pet sitting in the mean time.
Our family consist of the 2 humans and our other furkids, Dobby, Ella & Rosemary. We are a busy family that loves the outdoors, so if your pooch loves car rides, beaches and meeting other pups, there is plenty of that with us! We often have doggy play dates with our friends. The pooches they are most likely to meet include a golden retriever, small-medium bitsa, shih tzu cross, maltese cross, chihuahua cross and a kelpie cross. All desexed, fully vaccinated and up to date with preventatives.
year old male neutered ex racing greyhound. He is typical greyhound couch potato and gets along well with dogs of all sizes. He spends most of his day lounging on the couch or in the garden.
Ella is a 2 year old domestic short hair cat. She is a purely indoor cat that loves a good hiding place. Guest and other pets are unlikely to see her unless she wants you to!
is our latest addition to our family. She is an 8 year old domestic short hair. She is mainly indoors and outdoors when we are home during the day. She is an independant lady and gets along well with both humans and furkids.
Our House has a large
fully fenced garden, and is situated in a family orientated neighbourhood, with a park less than 100m away. The nearest fully fenced off-leash dog park is only a 5 mins drive away.
All pets are allowed FULL excess of the house day & night, including our beds. Therefore we would appreciate it if your furbaby is fully toilet trained. We will also need your pet to be up to date with vaccinations, worming, tick & flea preventatives.
You will have to provide the dog's preferred food, but we will also provide treats and bones if you give us your approval.
Please be aware that if your pup is not used to being home alone during a working day; then we may not be your best carer. My partner and I work full time and they may have to be alone for at most 9 hours on some days. If your pup is small, I am able to bring your pooch to work (:
We will require a meet and greet and I will get you to complete an information sheet about your pet prior to the stay, including emergency care and contact details.
Again, Furbaby must be up to date with C5 vaccinations & preventatives
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me (:
Charlene and Nick were great pet sitters. I found them to be accommodating, trustworthy and caring people and their communication was also excellent. Gentza enjoyed their time with them and seemed to make himself at home. We are so glad to have found them as people who would care for him just as we would. We have booked them again for a long period of time when we are in Europe.
Excellent service, our dog Ploufy was so happy to be with Nick, Charlene and Dobby. It is really a big peace of mind for us.
Both Nick & I are registered veterinarians.
