About Carolyn

I am a 60 year old retiree who is looking to fill in my days and nights providing lots of love, care, attention for your canine family members at my home. I have always had dogs in my life, I find I cant live without them.

I recently lost my beautiful 15 year old Moodle Roxy leaving me heartbroken motivating me to continue pet sitting to have some company and give lots of cuddles, love and attention. In time, I will look for a new 4 legged family member but for now I am happy to take care of your little loved one.

I have previous experience in pet boarding/hosting. I am also a member of madpaws Canberra (a similar pet sitting service) and have been pet hosting throughout this year. I have been absolutely loving it, receiving 5 star reviews and have repeat clients. I get so much joy loving, caring for and playing with a variety of 4 legged family members. To do so fills in my days and nights and simply brings me happiness.

I live in a modern single level home with a small and safe backyard complete with fully secure 7ft high fencing. I like to have my canine visitors sleep in my room so I can make sure they are relaxed and not anxious. Your family member will be with me 24/7 and will be totally pampered with love and attention. Daily walks are great and are included in my rates, normally a 30 minute walk unless otherwise stipulated by the owner as well as playtimes at home. I am also happy to give him/her a daily brush.

Unlike most other sitters who have to go to work, I do not leave the home while hosting and can give tour dog my full attention. This is the reason my pricing is a little more than those sitters who have to work. If I have to go out to do some shopping it's for minimal period being close to shops and services. All my time will be devoted to your dog to ensure he/she feels very comfortable, loved and safe.

Rest assured I am a total animal lover and dogs are at the top of my list for love and companionship. So if you are looking for a mature, responsible and experienced 5 star pet sitter I am perfect for you and your loved 4 legged family member. I am available for long or short term stays and can take last minute bookings if available as it's just me here with no other pets right now.

I only take on one one clients pet at any one time and will not be left alone for longer than 3 hours (and that would be very rare if at all). I do have shaded areas outside in the rear yard but I like to have my four legged friends inside with me unless I too am outside to supervise.

I have transport in case of emergencies and happy to send you daily updates with photos/videos of your loved one having fun during their stay.

I look forward to a meet and greet with you and your furry family member/s.

Our fur baby Cali spent another fun visit with Carol recently. Lots of playtime, walks, and just hanging about relaxing with Carol. Cali was so well looked after she was reluctant to leave, and she is already booked for her next visit. So thrilled to have found such a responsible and caring sitter for our girl. Thank you Carol.

Cali had her first sleepover with Carol this week and she had a lovely, relaxing visit. Cali is 13 years young and so has a few little health issues, but Carol was very comfortable with Cali's routine and medication needs. Cali is already booked for future visits and we know she will be in wonderful hands with Carol.
