As a kid, I memorized The Dog Encyclopedia book and to this day I have loved dogs and animals ever since. I have three fur babies, Bella (Lab X - 10 years), Fig (Ninja Fig, Cat -2 years) and Fox (Kitten - 7 months) who are treasured members of my family. I take pride in providing the best for my fur babies, and their needs come first.
I have experience in dog and cat training and my fur babies are well trained, calm and friendly. Fig is known to even jump through hoops and spin. This is why he is referred to as a ninja.
I first-hand know the anxiety of going on holidays or work trips and the nerves that come with leaving your fur babies behind, as I have previously travelled domestically and international for personal and professional purposes.
There is no need to worry as your fur babies would be treated as members of my family, and photos sent to you of your pets are a given (as you can never have enough photos and updates). There would be no shortage of fun and love provided.
OUR HOME –
• Secure and safe.
• Outdoor deck and courtyard. Perfect for those sunny days and laying in the shell pool.
• High fencing.
• Fur babies sleep inside or outside if preferred, on the couch and bed cuddles are more than welcome.
• Abundance of toys to play with.
• Walking distance to Altona Beach, Altona Dog Beach and off-lead areas.
• My cats are STRICTLY indoors – there is a doggy door in the garage where your pets can go freely into the yard during the day if they wish. Otherwise your fur babies will be taken outside frequently to do their business.
Please note: If your dog is not good with cats, will not leave them alone or is unable to be recalled the booking will be unable to be accepted.
DAY CARE and OVERNIGHTS -
Please ensure that your fur babies have up to date flea, tick, worming and vaccinations and are neutered prior to pet sitting at our home.
Note: If a booking is confirmed and accepted and an additional booking enquiry is made to pet sit your fur baby I will always confirm with the owner from the initial booking to ensure they are comfortable with additional(s) fur babies in the home.
These measures are to ensure the safety of my fur babies and yours.

Many thanks to Sophie for being such a good person.
Her kind personality and positive attitude was apparent even at our first encounter. We had a chance to have a chat and explore her place with Toby prior to confirming his stay.
She was super friendly, pleasant and attentive.
She kept us updated with photos.
We will definitely book with her again.
Thank you so much Sophie,Toby had a great time…
