About Sandra

Welcome to our Pawshake page! We are Sandra and James, and we heart animals :)

We can't wait to meet yours! We are a young couple living in a spacious 3-bedroom house with a fully-enclosed garden. We have lots of beaches, parks and green spaces nearby for walks.

We started looking after animals in Melbourne in 2013. Since then we have cared for dozens of dogs, a few cats, and a beautiful bunny.

We are animal crazy and we can't wait to meet your fur babies.

We have one dog of our own, a beautiful Bichon boy called Bally (pronounced 'belly'). He was originally one of our clients, but when his first human mother had to leave the country, she asked us to adopt him. Of course, we said yes!

When she gave us his birth certificate, we discovered that Sandra and Bally have the same birthday. It was meant to be.

When your pet comes to stay with us, they can expect to be as spoiled as Bally is! We take them out at least twice a day, so they get plenty of exercise.

Dog Boarding
Sharie, 2019-10-02

Sandra & James were wonderful & I cant recommend them highly enough.

We have a little cavalier who tends to be anxious around new people. Sandra & James were gentle with him & coaxed him with lots of treats and pats to build trust & comfort.

We were updated regularly/daily while we were away with the most gorgeous photos to reassure us that our cavvy was settling in & making new friends along the way with other dogs.

We are relieved to know that next time we go away we have wonderful & kind caters to leave our dog with

Dog Boarding

Sandra & James accepted a late request to mind our Cavoodle Fletcher for 2 days while we visited a sick family member interstate. This was a massive relief for us. As soon as we met Sandra & James and saw how amazing they were with the other dogs we were more than happy to leave Fletcher. We loved our photo updates and knew we didn’t have to worry about him. James was very accommodating when we needed a little extra time to get back. Fletcher was happy when we picked him up, as were the other dogs. Price was also a big consideration for us when searching for a sitter. Would highly recommend Sandra & James.
