Hi, I am Amanda Marshall and my husband Peter and I live on a 7 acre property in Junortoun, a suburb of Bendigo, and have the perfect place to take care of your pet/s. We have loved and cared for dogs for many years and have two little female fur babies of our own, Molly (2yo Maltese x Poodle) and Mags (11yo ShihTzu x Maltese). Molly has been socialised and graduated from Puppy School last year and loves to play with big or small dogs. She will take your dog to all of her hideouts throughout the garden, as long as they don't go near her buried treasures. Mags is getting the grumpy stage but she eventually gets used to visitors.
I do work full time but have every 2nd Friday off and my husband works shift work so there is generally someone at home the majority of the time. There will be times when myself and Peter can be at work at the same time so your pet will be required to be on their own with our girls for a maximum of 9 hours but I can arrange free midday check up if this occurs during you pets stay. I also have an assistant, Anita Merchant, who helps me with pick ups and drop offs and has a long history of caring for dogs and other pets. I also look after her fur babies from time to time. I will need to know more about your dog if it is large and male before I will accept a booking of this kind.
During the hot summer period we fill up a clam shell with water for the dogs to play in and they sometimes have a swim in the pool.
Your dog will have the pleasure of sleeping in a large dog house or they can bring their own bed/bedding and any toys. Your pet will have free range at all times in the large fenced back yard/garden area and can laze on our large deck area and watch the kangaroos, ducks on the dam and various other wildlife. If you own a small dog and it sleeps inside at your home, then they may sleep inside our home as well. Your dog will be loved and cared for as if they were our own and will get lots of extra cuddles and attention if they suffer anxiety from separation or storms. We will also take your dog to the vet in any emergencies, wash your dog as required and we are confident in administering oral medication.
Dog walking services are for those dogs staying overnight at our home only (not a stand alone service).
I am also happy to do day hosting, especially for those people who are travelling or caravanning and need someone to take care of their pet while they go shopping or visiting tourist areas around Bendigo.
We know what it's like and understand the anxiety that comes with having to leave them behind when you have to go away. We will also ensure that your pet feels safe and secure. We will keep in touch with you regularly so you know your pet is well taken care of to ease your worry and even send you photos.
We will only be accepting specific dogs types during the 2016 xmas period.
We will also look after your bird, rabbit or guinea pig but you will have to bring their homes to us.
Ask me as many questions as you like to make sure our home is right for your pet.
