Service Description
Hi there,

Lovely to e-meet you :)

*Please see our extensive number of pet and house sitting photo's under 'Personal Uploads'.

My mother and I offer professional pet and house sitting and have many and varied pet and house sitting experiences under our belt! We specialise in looking after dogs and cats and we both have a natural connection and rapport with animals (which we have been told by home and pet owners to be obvious from when we first meet!) And why so? Because we GENUINELY love and connect with animals and want to get to know them. We have also had our own in the past.

We update our knowledge base on the different animals and their behaviour as we go along, as we have an invested interest and passion for what we do. We are also very attune to animal/dog behaviour as a natural instinct and through our many varied experiences with animals so far. We have helped pet owners to be able to easily administer creams and medications through some simple techniques to a high success rate, alongside aid with dog training in certain areas with great results.

We have mainly looked after dogs (but cats also) and big and small we have looked after them all! From high energy Hungarian Vizslas to playful little Cavoodles, from ex-show dogs to rare pure-breed tiny Tibetan Spaniels, from dogs that have needed lots of walks to dogs that needed extra TLC, medical/food supervision and medication, from dogs that needed special outings and food prep to dogs that needed regular behavioural training...yes, we have done it all!

Furthermore, having two of us means more attention and time with your animals and more security for your home and property. We will also take in your mail, put out and collect the bins, water plants/garden and keep your house spic and span! We also know many doggie parks and beaches, alongside doggie friendly cafes and love our doggie outings. Your pooches will be spoilt with us!

Forget kennels, your doggies and kitties need not be anxious outside of their own environment when they have us! And, if your dog needs lots of cuddles and someone to talk to it, count us in there too :) We have plenty of love, cuddles and nurturing care to give. Also happy to take them in our car - it's dog/kitty friendly!

Any further questions, we have seen and experienced a lot, so please do not hesitate to ask!

Terrific! Renee did a brilliant job. Heaps of photos to keep us up to date, and Ruby clearly had a great time. Would definitely recommend and use again

Renee is by far the best pet and house sitter I've had. She looked after my 2 dogs and home with extra care and attention to detail. Before the job she came to ask questions. It was clear that her priority was to continue my dogs' familiar routine and cater to their quirks. She was able to manage their special needs including medication and it was clear just how happy they were in her descriptions of their behaviour and the photos she sent. The house was left immaculate. Renee is trustworthy and concientious -a gem - and i will go out of my way to book her in advance next time

I know our four legged baby is in the best care with Renee when we go away! When we came home from our four week holiday Maisy our cavoodle would have been happy to have stayed longer with Renee
