Service Description
My compassion towards animals was instilled at a very young age. Growing up my mother (an animal lover) would take in any animal that needed food and a warm bed, I remember loving coming home from school to begin my duties feeding and taking care of many cats, dogs, birds, mice and rabbits.
This nurturing nature towards animals has stayed with me, my husband and I live in THIRROUL, Wollongong and have 2 rescue PUGS Otto and Archie, 2 rescue CATS Snowflake and Honey, plus 8 chickens and a fish:)

We will provide your pet with a safe and loving home whilst you are away or at work. We may charge slightly more than others, however as I am on extended leave from work I am lucky enough to be able to spend all day with your pet playing games in the yard, going on numerous walks, having cuddles and investing a lot time and energy into ensuring your pet has the best experience possible! They often don't want to go home. Breakfast and dinner (rice, veggies and steamed fish or chicken) provided.
WALKS - I generally take my pugs for 2 walks a day (60 mins) which your pet would come along. There is an off leash dog beach 5 minutes away, your pet will be brushed, patted and given the same love and care they would be lavished on at home.
SLEEPING - We have a large fenced yard, with plenty of space, your pet will have access to the yard all day and will sleep inside at night.
MEDICATION - I can administer medication and am also First Aid and CPR qualified.
CRITERIA - Non aggressive toward our animals, your pet should be wormed, flea treated, C5 vaccinated and microchipped. House trained is a must as they would be sleeping inside.
FOOD - Either provide your own food or I can provide. I use "Stay Loyal" dry food for breakfast and cook a mix of rice/veggies and free range chicken mince for dinner.

Rayna was awesome in looking after Teddy. from the moment he walked in Teddy was a part of the family! Teddy spent the weekend going for walks with Rayna's 2 other pugs, playing and snuggling them, and she even took him our to a friends party which made me feel that Teddy was welcomed and included :) Rayna sent us lovely photo updates to keep us in the loop and we could tell Teddy was having a wonderful time. Her house was clean, safe, yard was well secured and Teddy had access to water, cuddly beds, and snuggled Rayna on the couch at night :) I highly recommend Rayna and her hubby to pet sit as your fur baby will be welcomed into their family!

My partner and I were going away on holiday for 5 weeks and we were worried about who was going to look after our precious pug - Yoda. Yoda was 5, he is passionate and loves human contact. I know Rayna from work and they also own a pug, OTTO who is similar age to Yoda. Rayna is an animal lover and always takes part in RSPCA activities. They live in a spacious house with a huge backyard for Yoda to play in. I was immediately at ease as soon as Rayna agreed to look after my baby. I was confident they both take good care of Yoda and he will receive plenty of care, walks and attention. Rayna gave me regular updates of Yoda. When I picked Yoda, he looked so happy and I can tell he was well taken care of. Yoda formed a lasting friendship with OTTO, Rayna and Brad. He is even fitter than before from the regular play time and walks. I highly recommend Rayna to look after your precious one if you are away for a short break or a well deserved long vacation. You can be at ease the high level of care Rayna will provide.
