About Denise

Hello :-)

*** Important that you please read through to the bottom of my listing ***

I've grown up with dogs (and other little pets over the years) and had my own gorgeous Labrador for 13yrs. I believe that a dog is part of the family, which is why I've never had an outside dog. They have always been trained well and know their boundaries....and they are loved.

It's hard leaving pets in boarding, especially when they're getting on in years, so at my house they have a home away from home as much as possible. I'm have a small photography business from home, so if I have a chilled model, there will be plenty of photos.

My World for Your Pet:

I work from home, so your pet will be with me a lot during their stay. I will keep them to their normal routine (as much as I can) ... helping them have a stress free stay

Pet and child free home

Medium size garden - great for playtime or chilling

High fencing and well locked gate

Exercised in my garden (see note below)

Visits to a dog friendly cafe and lots of cuddles on tap :-)

Where Will Your Pet Sleep?

Where they settle best at night. Could be in my spare bedroom or down the side of my bed..... if they're used to a sofa and can get up and down easily, then I'm happy to just cover the furniture and let them sleep there.

What Should You Bring With Your Pet?

Proof of current vaccination (can be emailed)

Clean bed, blankets, pillows and toys

Food, treats, bowls

Collar and lead.

Emergency contact info - family/friend and vet

Medications:

I'm comfortable giving medication in food or hidden in a 'treat'. If your pet is used to drops, pills etc., then I'm ok with that. I'm not skilled in the pill down the throat thing..... my pets have always won that game.

My Preferences:

Prefer dogs 1yr and older. Happy to consider any size dog and breed that is toilet trained and can be left for a max of 3hrs inside the house (if needed). Doesn't pull when restrained (lead, harness etc.) and socialised although happy to talk about minor issues so situations can be avoided.

IMPORTANT:

I am going through rehab for an ankle injury. Due to this, I can't go on long rambling walks for the foreseeable future. Happy to discuss and assess your dog, as I know I can manage short, gentle walks with a suitably sized dog who is responsive to commands, great on the lead and doesn't pull.

If they're sociable, dog friendly and have basic training to sit/stay etc., love the car and can get in and out by themselves (if they can't be lifted by me) then I can take them to a dog friendly cafe ...... latte for me, puppacino for your dog .... lots of little places to choose when driving along the coast. Giant breeds, such as a Dane, won't fit in my car, so it'll be home entertainment for them.

I'm happy to play fetch in my good sized back garden or hide and seek with little treats, that sort of thing. ...... I'm ok for boarding your pet, I just might not be able to take them for a walk.

If your ok with the above and you know your pet will be ok without a walk for the time they're boarded, please message me and we can have a chat :-)

Denise looked after my girl like she was her own. I felt very happy that my girl was being cared for and loved like I would do. Denise rang me once as Molly had not eaten her dinner and she wanted me to know. We discussed it and I felt confident that Molly was just adjusting to a new person. Sure enough the rest of her time with Denise was trouble free. Denise went over and above for my girl and I am happy to recommend her to other dog owners.

It was so comforting to find Denise upon my arrival in Perth whilst our move was in progress from the East. Doggo tells me that she was very well looked after for those 5 weeks. Denise updated us regularly with photos and emails on all their adventures. She was very accommodating and clearly has a love for dogs which was evident with how happy and content Doggo was from the get go in having her attention. Not only did we find someone to care for our dog and in the future but we found a friend in Denise as well. Thanks again for everything !!
