Service Description
If your loved ones have fur, feathers, tails, claws or even scales we would love to give them the attention and cuddles they deserve while you are away from home!

I have run a pet sitting business, feeding loved fur babies in their home for 10 years now (since 2006). Now that I no longer rent, I can now open our home to other dogs looking for a place to stay while their loved ones are away from home.

For people interested in their dog staying in my home:

Please note that I live with my husband (we are in out mid 30's) our baby daughter and have a fur child of our own called Tui.

His breeds are unknown as he was dumped in a beer box with his litter mates at 3 days old in Mackay. We think he has some Kelpie, German Shepard and Labrador in him.

- born in May 2014
- weighs 19kgs
- loves play dates
- always happy but sometimes timid in new situations, give him a ball and he is your best friend! When you arrive at our house he will bark his head off because he will want you to play ball with him. If another dog joins him he is happy to share the ball.
- more a follower than a leader, very submissive.

A meet and greet is essential to make sure we are all happy that they get along. He is a very mild mannered boy, a lot of people think he is a girl because he is so gentle. He tends to match the energy level of his fur visitor - sometimes he runs around like a lunatic with the other dog, sometimes he just potters around the house and sleeps. He gets a run at the dog park most days - weather dependant. Your dog is welcome to join in on the fun.

In summer he gets homemade doggy ice blocks to eat, your dog will be offered one too! A clam shell pool is always available when they feel like a swim.

The dogs will sleep in our laundry so that they are safe and secure and don't chase our native wildlife. Please see photo album titled 'Accommodation for dogs' for photos.

When the humans are home they will have full access to the house and the yard (three sections - front, middle and back). When the humans are not home you can choose to either have your dog outside with Tui or inside (in the laundry) with the fan on (in summer). I rarely go out of the house if i have fur visitors, but if i do it may be for 1-2 hours. In the laundry I have a security camera set up that i can access via an app on my phone. This allows me to check on them to see how they are going. The camera also allows me to hear what is going on, as well allow me to speak to them to reassure them if they are barking. Outside they will have protection from the elements in the entertainment area or under the house where there are a number of bed options. We have three high fences and the front fence is lower (1.2m). Tui was a digger when he first arrived, so we have placed wooden sleepers, where necessary, along the perimeter of the fence.

You must provide your little one's bed, toys (to make them feel a little at home) and food (so they don't get so upset tummy).
