Some key points:
Christmas bookings: Please be aware that I charge a $10 per day surcharge for Christmas holiday bookings. It is not currently possible to have this automatically added in to the displayed charge.
How long are the dog walks: 1 walk of 25 mins (unless raining steadily) - no extra charge
How many pets can I board at the same time? 2
What is my availability? I am flexible, and can usually fit you in
Will I be home with the dogs all the time? Most of the time, normally I only go out for 30-90 mins, or not at al
What is my home like: 4 bedroom house, with deck. 50m x 15m garden (see photos)
Who else lives in my household? One human guest, one male border collie, and my young daugter who loves dogs.
Where are the guest pets allowed to sleep? On the deck if it's hot and they want to, otherwise any of the living space indoors, including my bedroom of my collie agrees
I have Animal First Aid (advanced) cert (see photos)
I am a dog lover, and have kept poodles and border collies for 25 years. I speak ‘dog’ – that is am good at reading dog’s sounds, looks, and stances to know what they need. I was a professional groomer (washing and clipping) for about 2 years – and never got bitten! (A lot of dogs find bath-time a bit stressful, clipping more so. – you have to be good with dogs to earn their trust – and not abuse it). I’ve also worked my own dogs in obedience and agility – just for fun, not at the serious competitive level.
I have a large fully fenced garden that your dog can exercise in, and also there are some safe dog walks within 5 minutes of where I live. However, I wouldn’t exercise your dog off lead outside of my garden unless your dog and I have established enough of an understanding to know your dog will come when called. (This can’t usually be guaranteed with someone they don’t know well, so only applies to dogs that I have looked after for an extended period, or several repeat bookings.
Your dog is welcome to share our home, which, while they were with me would be their home as well. Digging in the garden and dusty poor prints inside is OK. If your dog is a small white fluffy lovable, I can wash them before return if you wish.
Dogs sleep inside unless they don't want to.
Please bring: Food, dog bowl, and leash. Please ensure that your furry friend is wearing a well fitting collar that won't slip out of when exercised on a leash.
PLEASE: Even if you have arranged a time, PHONE 15-20 mins before arriving for Meet and Greet, drop -off, or pick-up. When you arrive, use the bell-push on the gate. Thank you!
Unfortunately we didn’t end up requiring Terence dun to unforeseen events
If you are looking for someone who will love your fur babies like you do, then Terry is the man. Terry looked after our two giant breed doggos Brewster and Winston incredibly well whilst we were in isolation. Lots of daily photos and communication and my boys looked relaxed, happy and spoilt. One photo even showed one of my boys sleeping on his bed! The daily updates put my mind at rest, that they were being very well cared for. No hesitation in utilising Terry's services again myself and recommending to others 😊
