About Ngairini

Hi all, please note that I am currently away and unable to take bookings but will be back for a visit in early Oct. I won't have my dog with me.. I am a devoted animal lover. I have a job as a Teacher. I can do this from home mostly & also need to go to it on one day, but not for a long period of time. Please note that my excellently behaved medium sized cavalier x cattle Stanley comes along on ALL of my appointments so there is a definite need to take the time to meet and greet prior to my accepting the booking, so if booking make sure to give enough time for that visit to occur before the booking is to start, to ensure the that your dogs and mine get along peacefully. MP (this site) requests it. Any day care requests are taken at YOUR place not mine as my place is too tiny (and floats). My dog is gentle and is never aggressive (unless you are a cat or a chicken then look out!) am loving and kind. I adore dogs. I have had a dog most of my adult life. I have looked after all kinds of dogs, from small to big. It is best we look after just one or two dogs at a time at your home preferably as then I have time and attention focussed on the wellbeing of your darling dog/s. My love of and understanding of dogs should not be underestimated. They will be my and Stanley's (my dogs) best friend and constant companion while on your house-sit. If you need someone, ask me! I am currently interested in loving your fur babies & home or your property, keeping it upheld and safe. I can do weekends, holidays, or long term. I am available now! I bring with me my 10 year old adorable Cavoodle Companion Cavalier x Cattle dog Stanley. Stanley is 100% toilet trained, quiet, clean & healthy. He is socialised & clean. He is indoor/outdoor. I am a Tertiary Teacher. I am experienced in house-sitting with over 15 years experience, have many references, a police check & a love of animals that is genuine. I am very neat & clean. I am house-proud. I believe I can help make your pets happy, keep your home safe. I would truly cuddle your pets for you & keep your home as pristine as I found it, with errands done. I can water plants & check your mail, (although am not a professional gardener, please keep that in mind), I can mow, use a leaf blower, I can keep the bird bath full, feed the cows, the horses, change the hay, feed the fish, the birds, walk the dogs & make them my best friends while there. I am a genuine animal lover. I truly love all dogs and they will be showered with love, attention, acceptance, friendship and kindness while with my dog and myself. They receive my individual attention and are treated like family. They will get at least one walk a day including a beach visit or a wet park (securely fenced park on the waters edge so they can have a swim, fish etc). I offer pet feeding, dog walking, pampering, medication administering if they need it, and watering in your home anytime as well as bins, mail, security light etc. Let sleeping dogs lie - no kennels, no stressed pets! They'll be comfortable and content in their home environment and you'll receive regular updates on your pet via text/phone calls.I will leave your home as clean as I found it. My role is to keep your home up-kept and pet safe and sound, and keep your pet happy and loved.
I have been a dog owner for many years. I have been on two house- sit sites for this time where I have received loads of references and endorsements, as you can see below. My dog is de-sexed, vaccinated and healthy. I am safe, healthy, caring and kind. I have an Australian Federal Police Check for myself & Vaccination certificate for myself & Stanley! Please contact me to enquire. I am sorry that my dog is not good with cats, guinea pigs, pet lizards or fowl He is great with other dogs though!

Best regards,


(NB: Phone numbers of the owners are available on request per reference- This is just the last five years of house-sitting references-I also have a folder of references going back to 2007.

All was great, thanks! Ngairini did a great job looking after our house and 2 cats over a few days and nights. She was very thorough, and communicated well and the cats really like her. Thanks Ngairi!ni

Thanks again Ngairini, hope you are well.

Nyree looked after my dogs and house recently. She sent me updates, took them to the beach, played with them & upkept the house. Her dog Stan was no problem.. Thanks Ngairini. Coolum March 2022.

Ngairini has been absolutely amazing looking after my girl and my house -but to me my fur baby is most important-I would welcome her back here any day -my house is spotless on my return and my girl very happy and smelling nice after she managed to roll in "something" she is now smelling sweet again Thank you! I have a very nervous 11year old cocker spaniel named Stella -I rescued her 7 years ago at the age of 4 -she definitely had had a traumatic start to life and I don't take her on holidays with me as her home is her security now -She was very anxious when Ngairini and her beautiful boy Stanley first came often it takes 24 hours or more for her to be comfortable with someone new -but due to the gentle persuasion and giving her space she was soon heading over for pats and hugs . Ngairini has been so terrific in keeping in touch -and checking her for ticks etc and I was able to reassure her that Stella had only just had her Bravecto tablet . Thank you once again for the loving care you have given my girl -very happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for care for their fur baby. Cheers Elizabeth. Murrumba Downs.

Jan, Maryborough. January 2022
Ngairini & Stan have looked after our darling Charlie on several occasions & I felt confident that he would be well looked after, and that he was. Ngairini & I have remained friends ever since!

"Where do we begin? From the very start, Ngairini was brilliant. Easy to communicate with (quick replies!), easy going and punctual. Our two dogs were pampered and loved to the extent that they were sad to see her (and her gorgeous dog Stanley) leave! Our home was left beautifully and we were able to enjoy a fabulous holiday knowing that our much loved fur babies were in expert hands - we got daily updates too! Ngairini thank you for everything! You are wonderful! Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job!!! Really truly you are so lovely and have gone above and beyond!" Caroline, Carina, Jan 2022.

Ngairini is a real doggie joe. Your pooch will be pampered! X
Ngairini looked after my house and took care of my dog for me for two nights in December. The house was left as tidy on the return as it had been left for Ngairini and her dog Stan. My dog had a fantastic two days with Ngairini and Stan. She sent photos as updates which I really enjoyed receiving. I would absolutely recommend Ngairini and Stan. I was very happy and grateful for their help.'I was extremely happy with everything. Thanks for looking after my little house and Blakey. I'm very grateful.'

Rating: 5.0 THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: Ngairini and her dog Stan were fantastic and caring of our naughty puppy, even replacing his collar when he chewed up his own. She messaged with pics and updates on our boy, which was very comforting. The house was clean & tidy on our return as we left it and plants were all watered.

Thank you for taking care of our baby and home.
Everything is in perfect order. You are a gem.

Dear Ngairini.
Thank you for adoring my dog Bella, for keeping my home safe, neat, tidy and clean and for caring for the gardens, mowing, whipper-snippering & leaf blowing. It was a load off my mind knowing I could enjoy my holiday with my dog being loved & home looked after so well. On my return, with only one day off then back to work I really appreciated not having to mow the lawn, having the gardens looked after so well. You watered and cared for my place and dog as you would your own, everything was as I left it, I returned to the same lovely home I left. I am glad you and Stanley enjoyed your stay. Bella loved the two daily walks and cuddles I am sure.

Reference from Helen. Gympie. June 2018.

'Ngairini adored our small dog and her dog Stan become most close with her. She watered the plants and keep the home in a clean condition. All was in its rightful place with our dog happy, loved, fed and exercised.
Thanks Ngairini and Stan'.

REFERENCE from Colleen and Peter, Bundaberg, April 2017.

"Thank you to Ngairini and Stanley for housesitting for us for two weeks. Ngairini took on our housesit at short notice due to a cancellation and we were most grateful. The house, pot plants and gardens were well maintained in our absence. We found her honest, reliable and very friendly. We appreciated her contact with text messages and the follow up with replaying any messages which were important to us. As a matter of convenience, she has since visited and stayed with us and I dog-sat Stanley one day. I consider Ngairini will endeavour to "do a good job" with any house sit that she commits to."

June 2018. Esther, Maryborough.
'Ngairini is a sweetheart, took care of my two little doggies like they were her own. She went over and beyond to make the sit go smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone especially if you have pets needing looking after.'

REFERENCE from Sue, Hervey Bay, July 2018.
"Ngairini was quiet and peaceful and a pleasure to host and Stan the furry one was was excellently mannered also. We highly recommend them and hope they return again soon."

REFERENCE from Donna Turner, Coningsby. Jan 2017.

"To Whom It May Concern,

We were lucky enough to have Ngairini house sit for us while we went on holidays for 3 weeks and to look after our beautiful boy, Benji, a Maltese Shih Tzu. Upon our return, it was clear that Stan (Ngairini''s dog) and Benji had become the best of friends in a short space of time as they were happily playing the whole time in our company. The house was immaculate on our return and it was clear that Ngairini had taken extra care to keep the house clean, collect the mail, maintained the upkeep on our pool and even mowed our yard! All of this was above and beyond what we expected and we were most thankful for her caring nature.
We would have no hesitation in recommending her for anyone who is after someone who is responsible, courteous, well experienced with animals and trustworthy.

Kind Regards,


REFERENCE from Mark. Agnes Waters. February 2017.

"My first time using a house sitter, turned out to be a great experience. Ngairini did a great job, upon my return, the house was spotless, Maggie my dog was happy, and the whole experience happened without any hassles or worries. She did a great job, Stanley was awesome and so well behaved, I would certainly recommend Ngairini and Stanley and will be using them again in the future."

Reference from Kevin & Valma. Mondure. March 2017.

"Ngairini will look after your home and animals with great care. She is very particular in following your requests so as to leave your home in it's original condition."
