Service Description
Pets are treasured members of the family and deserve that extra special attention when their humans need to be away from home. It is important to me to provide personal care that respects your pets’ usual habits and abilities, and to ensure that I maintain any training that you have in place. Available for regular walking or pet-sitting at your home. I am more than ok with very short (i.e.: only one overnight) pet-sitting arrangements. Generally my maximum preferred pet-sitting would be 3 weeks, however I am more than happy to chat further with you about longer stays depending on your location and pets' requirements. Also with dog-walking on its own, my non-standard work commitments lend themselves well to short-term, once-off or emergency/fill-in dog walks. I have experience with big and small dogs in urban and rural settings, with special interest in senior dogs who perhaps need a little more special care and patience. While I have not ticked the cat and other pet options on my services provided, I am happy to care for other pets when there is a dog in the house. It is always lovely to receive happy photos of your fur friends, especially while you are on holidays and I am more than happy to provide you with regular updates. I have even been known to write a Doggy Diary so your fur friend can share all their news when you get home.

Review And Testimonials

Sandy was responsible for looking after our 14 year old Goldie Bo for 3 weeks in August. Her incredible patience and attention to detail was exactly what our old dog required as he can be slow and stubborn. Sandy showered Bo with an enormous amount of love which was reflected through the wonderful photos of our dog being cuddled, walked, pampered, brushed, loved and ultimately spoilt by her. Sandy even wrote a “doggy journal”of Bo’s adventures! This was a truly touching gesture that we will cherish and simply emphasises Sandy’s thoughtfulness and sincerity. Sandy oozes generosity, compassion and love. She is a wonderfully happy spirit with a vibrant energy that is instantly contagious. We adored Sandy’s fantastic mix of youthfulness and maturity that instills a delightful reassurance that she is in control and be adaptable to your dog’s needs. We can not wait for Sandy to return to see Bo’s puppy like reaction to her return.

Sandy looked after our dogs for several weeks whilst we were overseas. One a German Sheppard Cross, the other a Staffy Cross (both rescued from the RSPCA). Being medium to large dogs, then can be a handful. Sandy had no issues taking them for regular walks and keeping them happy and healthy in our absence. I think that the dogs hardly missed us. I will have her back to 'dog sit' again no questions asked.

I am a performer who has the joy of non-standard working hours, which means good free time to be a short-term companion and/or walker to your fur friends. While I'm based around the Elwood area, I am open to considering opportunities in different suburbs. Alas, my own small garden-less accommodation prevents me from having my own pets for now, so I find dog-walking and dog-sitting a great way to enjoy canine pals.
