Service Description
Hi there!

I am a 25 year old student and my partner in crime is a 2 year old Australian Shepherd named Aurora. Our favourite activites include beach runs, playing ocean fetch and playing at the park. We live 5 minutes away from an off leash park full of friendly young dogs and a nice dirty creek for swimming in. Our backyard has been made virtually escape proof (dig proof) over the years, the only dogs we would have trouble keeping are known fence jumpers, as there is one area where a retaining wall meets the property fence (see pictures). The backyard consists of tiles around a pool, and a sloped garden above a retaining wall for exploring and lizard chasing.

Aurora has been very well socialised with dogs of all sizes, and loves to wrestle and chase. She does tend to play rough. Sleeping arrangements can be made for inside and out, depending on age and size, and toilet trained dogs will be welcome inside our home during the evening and on hot days.

I have worked at a pet boarding facility in Sydneys south for the past two years, where I am responsible for medicating, grooming, feeding, cleaning, caring and checking (aged care daily checks, general health checks) cats and dogs. I have undertaken bite minimisation courses, and have experience dealing with anxious pets.

I am also studying zoology and conservation biology at the University of Western Sydney, and have completed my certificate 2 in Animal Studies. Other hands on experience includes a year of volunteer work at Taronga Zoo, and I am a current member of the Illawarra branch of WIRES.

Bruno had a lovely two weeks at Stacey & Aurora's house!! We could tell that Bruno was very happy and was well looked after. He almost didn't want to come home!! Stacey sent us regular photo updates & took the dogs to the local dog park regularly. We would highly recommend Stacey to our friends :)

My husband and I left our two dogs with Stacey for three nights. A 14 year old Jack Russell & a 2 year old Border Collie. Our Collie played non stop with her dog Aurora, who by the way has a beautiful nature & she even got along with our grumpy (dog aggressive) Jack Russell. Our Jack Russell was wrapped in doonas, kept inside & given lots of human attention, which he loves. She walked both dogs daily and even bathed them on the day they were returned. It also gave us piece of mind to know she works at a kennel & is at uni studying animal related subjects. You can tell she not only has tons of experience with dogs but also loves having them & is interested in their unique behaviours & personalities. She's also good with over anxious dog owners who have concerns about their pet. She answered all my questions and was happy to meet up before hand so the dogs could meet. She sent me daily photos & updates durning their stay. We will be using her every time we need a dog sitter. Very happy customers!!
