About Eileen

Hi There!

We are a couple in our mid-50s who have retired early so, between us have plenty of time to give your pet attention and company. We have no kids, nor pets of our own, so yours are our substitute babies.

We began house-sitting in Australia and overseas once we lost our own dog in 2013 and gained 22 endorsements through another web housesit service. In 2018 after spending summers in NZ we permanently resettled in Adelaide and began offering services with Pawshake.

We both do occasional volunteer work over the course of the year and through doing this hold current police clearances.

HOMESTAY WITH US NOTES:

We live in Underdale facing the River Torrens Linear Park, have a fully fenced back garden with a small doggy door for access in and out of the house and to a small kennel. For the stays at our place we can only take dogs that have completed toilet training. SMALL or MEDIUM dogs that are fairly relaxed and placid. If your dog is more excitable I prefer to do it as a Housesit at your place.

We usually don't mind if your pet wishes to share our bed with us, if this is what they are used to as we would like them to follow their routine so that they are as relaxed as possible.

We tend to be requested to look after many pets that are timid of other pets. If this is the case let us know and we can reserve our place exclusively for yours. It is rare that we have more than one dog booked with us at one time, in any case.

If your pet is left alone it would not be anticipated that this would ever be for more than 4 hours at any time.

Happy to take them for a walk as part of the service and if multiple long walks are required we can add this service.

You will receive plenty of updates over the course so that your time away from your pet can also be relaxing and reassuring.

DOG WALKING SERVICE: This can be undertaken by either Eileen or Tomas although, at present, we are only considering dog walking assignments that are in our local area unless attached to a Housesit booking. Duration of walks will be up to an hour.

HOUSESITTING NOTES

House Sits are most often undertaken by Eileen.

I only accept housesits in smoke free households.

Although I do not work and consider myself a home-body I still may occasionally require some time out of the house for myself so please discuss expectations with me.

Happy to take them for a walk as part of the service and if multiple long walks are required I can add this service.

Happy to administer medication but will need some direction if IV is required.

If your pet is left alone it would not be anticipated that this would ever be for more than 4 hours at any time.

I have been a part-time house sitter since my 20s and have also managed accommodation in the tourism sector so have a high level of maintaining cleanliness.

You will receive plenty of updates over the course so that your time away from your pets can also be relaxing.

Eileen is a warm and caring person and clearly has an affinity with dogs. Our 9 month old groodle Alice loved spending a weekend at Eileen’s and is already booked in for a longer stay next month. Highly recommended.

Eileen is a fantastic sitter, so accommodating and kind and the dogs felt so at home at her place they just walked in and took over. we would definitely leave our fur kids with Eileen again and we recommend her highly and for two dogs it was great value.
