Growing up on a small hobby farm in country NSW has given me experience with a wide variety of animals. My family still live on and run the farm, so my experience has been from birth to adulthood. I have had extensive experience and am confident in all aspects of care with Chickens, Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Guinea pigs, Rabbits, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Pigs, Snakes, and more! I genuinely love spending time with animals. I have young children at home, who are never left unattended with our guests. However, I do ask if you are aware of your pet being uncomfortable or dangerous around children to consider booking with a more suitable sitter. We have a smoke free home.
Pet hosting – In our home
All pets are welcomed as part of our family. The aim is to provide them with a fun-filled holiday, not just a safe place to stay.
Dogs – All dogs are welcome to sleep inside or out as per their usual routine at home. We have a medium sized pet door for easy access to the large fully fenced rear yard. Walks are included in the pet hosting fee, as per your request or 1-2 walks daily. We frequently walk along the Pen-link trail, which is a decent length and a safe walk for dogs. We also visit many dog friendly locations along the peninsula including dog friendly beaches and parks. ** outings are run by owners for suitability first.
Cats – Cats are kept indoors only unless a suitable outdoor enclosure or activity pen is supplied by owners. This doesn’t mean they miss out on the fun though, they will be provided with a safe haven (spare room) for their own enjoyment and are welcome to join the family for affection and plays at their discretion. Just as a true cat would like it – on their terms. (I love cats I’m just kidding)
Small animals – All small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds are required to bring along their own enclosure. They will be supplied with suitable fresh produce (no extra charge) and have their bedding changed 1-2 times daily or as needed. Small animals can be kept indoors or out as per their normal routine at home and the suitability of their enclosure (Eg. Mosquito proof for rabbits).
All pets must be supplied with their own food for the duration of their stay. Dogs must have their own lead. We supply clean bowls for each meal and a variety of toys for play (you can byo if you prefer). Nights are based on a 24hr stay, (E.g., 9am drop off/9am pickup = 1 night). Late/early pickup and drop off available for an additional fee and must be added at the time of booking. I can Pick up and drop off for an additional fee and must be added at the time of booking.
Covid safety – Drop offs and pickups will be from our front door or from the outdoor area to the side of our home. This will be specified according to your pets needs at the time of booking.
Home visits – at your home.
I attend to your pets in the comfort of their own home. Each visit includes a 20–30-minute stay where I will play with your pet, feed them, and engage with any other specified needs. Walks are available for an additional fee. Home visit bookings receive 50% off walk fees. I also water gardens, bring in mail, and put out/bring in garbage bins on specified days as part of the service ( free of charge). Fees are per visit – if you require more than one visit per day please message me at the time of booking and I will make the necessary amendments to the fee total. I have an up-to-date National police clearance and WWCC which I can provide copies of on request.

Pet Hosting - May 3, 2021
Leila was fantastic! She watched both our boys from Friday till Sunday while we enjoyed our wedding weekend and sent lots of photo updates which made us feel comfortable and happy knowing they were safe! When we picked them up they were both exhausted from plenty of fun! Thankyou so much🥰…
