Private: Home Boarding - Pet Accommodation; Cat &/ Dog Sitter; Walking & Other Pet Visiting / Minding

Buddy (Loves xoxo): whipchi x terrier

Cosy, old fashioned home (smoke free) with a medium size yard in a nice, quiet street situated 15-20mins from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL), 40mins from Avalon Airport (AVV) & approximately 15km North West from Melbourne city / 30-45 minutes approx. by car.

Hosted by a quiet, patient, thoughtful Owner/Mummy/Best friend that is full of life experience with responsibility and looking after of animals. As having herself owned, adopted, saved, found, re-united, minded &/ cared for: kittens, cats, baby skink/lizard (until grew up as a bobtail or blue tongue then released), baby owl, rabbits, canaries, goldfish, budgies, finches, chooks, puppies, dogs (small & large)…

Possessing strong commitment as well as passion to animals since knowing they bring joy to many people’s lives every day including her own.

Stays at Buddy’s include:
Living &/ sleeping inside (optional: outdoors for any outside pets?) – just like would at home. Sun-time during the day when weather permits or undercover patio for shade or can relax chill / play in lounge room area including unlimited access to couches, indoors has air conditioning & heating amenities. Pats, cuddles, tummy rubs, attention, massages, play / daily walk/s, or some alone time away (when there are other pet guests eg.) -if should need, perhaps gets too much or ample excitement (even for a pup/dog).

There is no set structure (as every pet is different) & no strict rules apart from unreasonable noise foremost, otherwise it’s quite casual and no wee wees or any other naughty business when inside (understandably, accidents/mishaps can happen) – taken outside immediately before, during or after (if was not caught in time) ;).

{Teaming with a younger, active, adult partner on doggie walk/s = lots of running, biking, or perhaps swimming. Wearing out by providing plenty of exercise and mental stimulation (for those high energy that require more).

Other fun day excursions/trips out at the dog beach (25mins drive) eg. or enclosed dog park/s (if safe to be unleashed: already well socialised, calm, has great recall & will not dominate other doggies) for exploring different sights, sounds, sniffs.... for those longer stays} ~ at Owner's discretion

[With immense respect to our neighbours at all times, who are living in close quarters of our yard and due to noise restrictions that must be considered...

- Quick, calm, quiet & no fuss drop-offs (+ is best for a pup/dog)!

- too yappy/excessive barking & boisterous (unmanageable) doggies regretfully, can't always be catered for, therefore are unable to attend. Alternatively, visit/s to your abode can be provided].

Dog Walking - May 30, 2021
Jojos communication with myself and working around my schedule was great. Thanks Jojo

If you love your furbabies, then you need Jojo!! She cared for our little Menagerie so incredibly well. We returned home to an immaculately clean home and some very content little ones. Every day we received updates and photos, which allowed us to enjoy our time away, knowing the furbabies were safe and happy. Thank you so much, Jo!

Fantastic once again! Will keep going back to use Jojo as the dogs seem to love her and very prompt messages and photos each day. Great all round!!

Jojo was amazing, she took care of my furbabies as if they were her own. She took especially good care of my anxious pup, and sent through loads of photos and updates. I was so pleased to come home to a clean and tidy house as well. I wouldn't hesitate to use Jojo again, and would definitely recommend her to others. Thank you so much Jojo!
