Service Description
Hi my name is Lexi and I own and run a pet care business called 4 Paws Pet Care.

As a fulltime job I board dogs and run a doggy day care at my home for toy and small size dogs as well as making home visits around the Illawarra.

I am located in Gwynneville (near Wollongong Uni) and have a big backyard for your friendly dogs to run around in all day. Dogs that stay in our home have access to the backyard and house during the day and can go in and out as they please. All dogs sleep inside during the night, where ever they usually sleep (bedroom, lounge room, bathroom/laundry, or crate). All dogs must be well socialised and no constant barkers or high anxiety issues. All dogs must be up to date with vaccinations, flea and tick treatment and worming.

What to bring for sleep overs?
- Bedding, or an item of owners clothing to sleep with is very comforting for a dog.

- Food, if dogs are on special diets or are picky eaters. If your dog eats homemade they can be frozen in portions and defrosted daily.

- Toys, we have lots of toys here for all the dogs to play with but you are welcome to bring bedtime toys (at your own risk) we try to keep these toys just for bedtime for your dog but some dogs can be very sneaky so best not to bring any sentimental toys just in case.

- Medication, please provide instructions and dosages in the medical section of your pets account.

If you do not want to bring your own items, all will be provided. If your dog needs medication administered, this will done free of charge.

Pet Sitting

Pet sitting is home visits for people in the Illawarra who prefer their pets (not just dogs) to stay in the comfort of their own home. I will ensure your pets are fed and given fresh water and playtime! I’ll give your pets plenty of attention and exercise just as you would if you were home. I will even water your indoor plants, bring in the mail, collect your newspapers and put out the rubbish… whatever you need. You can decide how many visits a day you would like or even add a walk.

Please add as much pet information as you can before enquiring about dog boarding and day care.
