About Shawnah

We are a mother and son team who love animals of all kinds. My son wants to be a zoologist when he gets older and instead of sitting on a device in his free time, he loves getting outdoors and playing with dogs. 

We are experienced pet owners and carers. We currently have one dog, two pygmy bearded dragons, a frog, a blue-tongue lizard and two birds. We have been pet sitting for 5 years, previously in NSW and in QLD for the past year. We specialise in dogs; however, we are also experienced in minding lizards, birds, Guinea pigs, fish and frogs, just not snakes! We can look after dogs of all ages, sized small to medium, as long as they are vaccinated and desexed. We can administer oral medications and provide baths. We have a two night minimum stay and a maximum of two dogs per stay. 

Where possible, we to arrange a brief visit to our home prior to a booking, to ensure the dog can't escape our yard, is comfortable with our dog and that the owner is comfortable leaving their pet with us. 

On the weekend and school holidays we will spend all day with your pet. During the school term, pets will not be left for any longer than six hours during the day while I am at work and not at all in the afternoon/evening. During those six hours my husband, who works 5 minutes from home, will check on them every hour.
Pet sitting: Our home is on two levels and the dogs have free run of the downstairs area. 

The yard has been fenced at the back and side in colourbond fencing and at the front with a high brick wall so it is fully secure. We also have two internal fences, separating it into three areas. We have a large living area where the dogs sleep on the lounge or their beds on the floor.

 My son also cos keeps with dogs who need additional comfort. We have both a dog park near our home where dogs can run freely off-leash. The area is fenced, and small/medium dogs have a separate yard to larger dogs. 

We are 5 minutes from a dog beach, and we have a walking path along the creek near our home for dogs who prefer to stay on a leash.

House Visit: We can visit your pets in your own home to feed/walk/play/cuddle them. This includes a walk, feeding, administer medication and cleaning (eg: tank, litter, pick up poo in yard). Each visit lasts half an hour.

We have been dog sitting for over 5 years with 5 star review and repeat customers, in both NSW and now in QLD. We invite potential dogs for a home visit to ensure that our home is the best environment for their stay at that their owners feel comfortable in leaving their precious pets with us. We own a variety of pets ourselves so we don’t just sit dogs but can also look after cats (in home visits), lizards, fish, Guinea pigs and birds.
