Thirroul, New South Wales
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.

Please enquire for a discounted rate for longer stays.

I was very nervous about leaving my "baby" with a dog sitter, that is, until I met Rayna. Rayna is wonderful and caring and gave me peace of mind instantly. At the meet and greet Rayna called by baby "Benny Boo" and as I'm the only one who calls him that, I knew she was the one. She sends photo updates and texts to put you at ease and I would not hesitate to use Rayna any time in the future.

Frankie was nice and quiet when we picked her up - clearly Rayna's puppies helped her burn off some energy - we would bring her back any time :) Thanks!
