About Lydia
Although I am a keen lover of most animals, I have a soft spot and a wealth of knowledge and experience with dogs, particularly with Shar Peis. I’m on the board of a registered charity group dedicated to the rescue of this breed ever since rescuing our oldest fur baby, Ralph.

We have a large backyard with zones so that we can separate dogs if required. A general grassed area/large patio, a fenced pool area and a fenced third large patio zone. (We also have a chicken coop with 8 chickens).

I have dog first aid experience, extremely comfortable administering medications. Particularly knowledgable with shar pei issues, ear infections, skin irritations, eye care.
We have mainly cared for medium-giant breeds in the past from staffies to mastiffs.

I am home most days with my 2yo son (who loves animals and is very gentle) while studying. For this reason any guests must be comfortable with young children.

Our dogs prefer to sleep outside during summer at night, hang in the air conditioning during the day and sleep inside in winter. They are fed in the mornings (grain free biscuits) and treats or bits of my lunch during the day. They are chilled dogs that sleep a lot. Rupert is still learning his manners as is only a puppy, so introductions are important.
