Hi, my partner and I are in our 50's and have been pet lovers from the beginning. I grew up in the country and had multiple pets as a child, including 2-3 dogs at any one time, cats, birds, fish, rabbits and turtles. We no longer have any pets of our own now, as we want the freedom to be able to travel in our retirement. So over the last couple of years we have welcomed the opportunity to look after our friends, neighbours and work colleagues dogs, whenever the chance arrives. My partners' last dogs were two dachshunds, the last one reached the ripe old age of 16.5 years. Our yard is totally secure, fully fenced, so your pet wont get out and the 2 metre high gate is key locked for added security. Your pet will have human company during the day, 4 days a week, as I only work Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays. We also have an elderly neighbour who will happily keep an eye out for your pet while we are at work - her kitchen window looks right down our back yard !. Depending on what your pet is used to and it's temperament, it may be able to stay in the house with us at night time. Otherwise they can stay downstairs in our bathroom with access out to the back yard. Or there is a covered area at the back of the house, that can house your pets bed and your pet can shelter here should it rain. The long yard is nice and grassy, lots of plants and your pet can relax in the sun if it chooses, or under the shade of a tree. We will happily take your dog for a walk to the dog park which is about 7 mins walk from our house, or along the paths on the beach front. You can rest assured your furry friend is in safe and reliable hands, while you're away on holidays. Please note, we have a minimum fee of $50 per booking. If your pets stay is only for a single night, then this $50 rate applies. For bookings of more than two nights, the normal rate of $38 per night applies. Thank you....

Ruby enjoyed her stay with Marina who dealt with her insecurity and nervousness well. …
Marina was excellent! She took great care of Cinammon and kept us well informed with messagws and photos throughout the stay. Cinammon looked so happy during her stay with Marina and she returned home perhaps even better behaved than before!…
