My husband (Isaac) and I have a lovely, large house in Deepdene/Balwyn with a big backyard. There is lots of shade outside, trees and it is fully enclosed with a high, secure fence. Our dog Obi (male, desexed, 4-yrs-old) and your pet sleep inside, and are inside the house whenever they like - we have a very pet-friendly home! We also have a pet-pool and pet-fan for those hotter months.
We both work Mon to Fri (short hours) and are home-bodies - so we will prioritise spending time with your pet - especially if they are anxious or needy. My work is a 5 minute walk away, so I come home for a pat sometimes and to check on the dogs. On the weekends we will make sure we are at home as much as possible when your pet stays with us.
Your pet will get much love and attention - Obi gets two (30-45min) walks a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We spend lots of time cuddling, and on weekends we go on excursions to Ruffey Lake Park, Brighton Beach etc. This is all dependent on your animal though - if you wish for them to stay at our place only, we have enough space to throw the ball and play with them here. We also are happy to keep them off or on-lead when walking, depending on your needs.
Obi is a big dog - so we are very comfortable with handling larger breeds, but he is very gentle and relaxed and actually loves little dogs, and older dog in particular - so all shapes and sizes are welcome. We would be happy to meet you in our local parks or at our place, to go through any of your concerns.
We have a large SUV car - so transport is also not an issue and we can pick or drop your animal off at a small extra cost. We also have a fantastic local vet but can use your vet as an emergency if needed.
