I'm a responsible 22 year old student, and have been a long time dog-owner (am currently in my only phase of life without having a dog companion). I have experience owning and caring for many breeds and temperaments. Some of this experience comes from my involvement as a foster carer with ACT Rescue and Foster and as a current weekly volunteer dog walker at DAS (Domestic Animal Services).
I live in a securely fenced home in Aranda where there's heaps of awesome places to walk the dogs multiple times a day. However, the colourbond steel fencing is only approx. 1.6-2m in some places, so may not be suitable if your dog is an escape artist.
I understand the logistical struggle a couple of days away can be with a pet and don't think these few times should prevent us having these companions in our lives. I also feel that leaving your loved one in a home environment with lot's of good company and comfort is far preferable for your dog and for reducing our guilt as owners.
Am more than happy to meet in person or for you to give me a call and we can discuss the needs of your dog. Potential for longer stays as well as I just really love dogs!
