Merry Puppins Dog Minding is all about bringing your fur-baby in and caring for them as one of the family.
To help with bonding, I do a daily brush & tick check incorporating some relaxing massage. Also, I recommend bringing a favourite comfort toy and an item of bedding to help your fur-baby feel secure during their stay. I do ask that you supply clear instructions on any dietary restrictions, and supply all food.
I have cared for many dogs of various breeds, sizes and temperaments, with a lot being from rescue type situations, which have needed special considerations and extra loving attention. Many have had trouble with anxiety issues, and as I am also a Remedial Therapist, I have seen excellent results through utilising essential oils and canine massage.
Even when not from a rescue background, most pets have their own set of funny little idiosyncrasies, and being in a new place can cause them anxiety; my experience with rescued pets has given me a lot of insight, and has equipped me to handle all situations with gentle love and understanding.
All of my past "Foster Fur-babies" have a special place in my heart and I enjoy staying in touch with their owners.
