About Lena

Hi,

My husband and I are both dog lovers. I (36) am from Germany and my husband Patrick (42) from Peru. We've lived at the Northern Beaches for more than 10 years now and call Warriewood our home since January 2018.

We both know how tricky it can be to find a trusted person to leave your dog with while travelling, hence we'd like to offer him/her a comfy place to stay and keep our dog company. We've had our own dog, Snook, for 9 years now (staffy cross). He's very calm and well behaved, and he genuinly thinks he is half human.

We both grew up with dogs, me with a Fox Terrier and my husband with all sorts of breeds, most recently 2 Boxers.

We'd love to take care of your dog at our home while you are on leave and will make sure he/she feels right at home. We also have a 5 year old daughter who adores dogs and loves to take them for walks.

We usually take our dog for a big swim at Bayview during the warmer months, go for a run or bicycle ride around Narrabeen Lake or play ball in the local parks. We love to explore the outdoors and you can see us walking along the Northern Beaches every day. Your dog would be guaranteed 2 good walks a day while you are away.

Our town house has a nice garden at the back (fully enclosed) and the dogs have access to the house. We both work full time (me at a local university and my husband in the medical device industry), yet, I am home on Wednesdays (all day) and the weekends. Your dog will get plenty of attention with a good walk in the mornings before work and an extended walk after 5pm. We have a dog walker booked in on Thursdays too, and you are welcome to use her services if you wish. The only thing we ask for is for your dog to be kid-friendly.

So, go on that camping trip and let us take care of the rest.

From the moment you meet Lena, you know your pet will be in great hands. She is very friendly, warm and kind (together with her husband, daughter and Snook). She looked after my labradoodle for almost 5 weeks. My dog is a fussy eater and Lena worked with this. My dog also gets car sick so I told Lena she could leave her at home if they went out. She was happy to deal with any vomit and took her to the beach every weekend, which my dog loves. I got some great updates together with a video of a beautiful song created by her gorgeous daughter about my dog. I love watching it, it always makes me smile. I have no hesitation in recommending Lena and Snook and family to look after your fur baby!
