About Heather
Hi there! I really really love dogs, but for various reasons I can't adopt one full time right now. Still, I miss the canine company and while I've been borrowing friends' pooches for short stints here and there, I have plenty of couch space and devoted dog mum energy leftover – which brings me here!  

I'd happily host your dog at my inner north Canberra townhouse, which has a small deck/courtyard and a doggy door, giving your pup continuous access to the outside and lots of cuddles and affection on the inside. I work part time so I would be able to provide lots of company, stimulation and exercise for your dog when I'm home - though at this stage I can't offer 24h company if that's what your dog needs.

I'm an experienced and responsible dogsitter. I’ve been a dog parent myself, have been dog sitting professionally for two years, and volunteered at animal shelters, so I'm comfortable with lots of different breeds, temperaments and care needs. I have a particular soft spot for staffies and bully breeds - the boofier the better! When I'm not on the internet offering to cuddle strangers' dogs, I'm your pretty typical Canberra policy analyst.

I know how tricky it can be to find a reliable and trustworthy dogsitter who will give your fur child the kind of care and attention you would. So please get in touch if I can be of service!

Heather was great- our dog was well cared for, we got lots of updates on how he was going, and he came back happy and calm. We'd absolutely ask her to look after him again.
