About Catherine
I just love dogs. I have a good size, securely fenced yard and dogs are welcome inside my home and out in the yard. Archie, my own 3-year-old Cairn terrier, loves someone to play with. 'Zoomies' around the yard is one of his favourite things.

I will walk your dog at least twice a day, but taking into account the heat and humidity. Most of our walks are early morning and late afternoon. When the tide is out, we love to walk and splash at our local beach.

When the weather is really hot, there is always an air conditioner on, and there are some nice shady places in the yard too. Dog door access means the furries can decide for themselves where they are most comfortable.

I have a variety of dog beds, or you are welcome to bring your own. Sleeping inside at night is encouraged because we can't always keep the toads away.

I have been minding my friends' dogs for years, and I would be delighted to mind yours. I am particularly fond of terriers!

My own dog is an inside dog, so visiting dogs also need to be happy indoors. Of course, they have free access to the yard, except at night.

We also have a special place in our hearts for older dogs,

We had to find a local sitter at short notice. Catherine was wonderful. Our Max is an older dog who loves some extra love and attention in a home environment. Highly recommend Catherine and Max would agree too!

Catherine was so lovely, and easy to communicate with. It was our 18 month old cavelier Ruben's first time with a pet sitter. He stayed with Catherine for 2 weeks while we went on holidays. Catherine regularly updated us with information on how he was going, and sent photos. She took excellent care of Ruben and spoilt him rotten! Would definitely book with Catherine again. 5 stars!!

We booked our Maltese shitzu in for 5 nights with Catherine. What an amazing woman! My dog was well cared for (too well as he didnt want to come home!) He had so much fun playing with Archie and has made a new best friend. Catherine, thank you so much for being such a lovely, caring lady. We will definitely use you again if going away and would love to organise play dates with Archie 💕

Daisy’s stay with Catherine was a home away from home. As she is an old dog, Cathrine took wonderful care of her, when concerned about her health she contacted my daughter and together they organised a visit to the Vet and medication. We are so appreciate and grateful for the special care. Thank Catherine
