About Alana
My family (residing in Joslin) have been caring for dogs in our home since 2000 through Guide dogs SA. This means we are very prepared for all types of temperaments, we've seen it all. After a whopping 25(ish? too many to count) dogs through 12 years, we have now settled on our own labrador, Blue.

A bit about me - My name is Alana, I have minded friends and relatives cats and dogs many times before. I used to have pet mice (I am not squeamish when it comes to unconventional pets). I will be able to make sure your animal is well looked after while you're away.

I will accept any animal excepting snakes (only because my mother is terrified) and not cats as she is allergic. Try me :)

As I have been with Madpaws for a while now I have come to the decision that we cannot take male dogs in our home. Blue has not been able to share his throne. Don't forget I am available to do house sitting.

I am happy to comply with most personal requests you may have for your particular animal to ensure they have no stresses while you're gone.

Sleeping arrangements for dogs: I can accomodate your pet either under shelter in our backyard or within the house.

For a small fee, depending on location, I may also be able to offer pick up and drop off of your beloved pet.

If you are seeking dog boarding at our home I would prefer to have your dog meet mine prior to booking to ensure there won't be any major conflicts.

Thank you for your consideration :)

Alana did a wonderful job looking after Breeze. She was kind, thoughtful and very caring of a young dog who had never had a 'sleep over' or been away from home before. I'm sure Breeze will love going back to such a friendly family. Thanks Alana and Blue
