About Jarod
I am an experienced dog sitter (5yrs), offering my home and/or services for medium or bigger dogs. Being a full-time student and working only one day a week, I am at home most of the time, ensuring an unmatched level of attention and care for your good boys and girls. I have the friendliest 18-month German Shepherd, Bella, who is no stranger to new dogs, having lived with several I’ve looked after previously with no issues.

I have a medium-sized yard, part grass and part paved, offering plenty of room for play and shelter, as well as rotated toys, a shell-pool to cool off and plenty of treats for good behaviour. Indoor access is also offered, filled with more toys and the added benefit of three other roommates who’ve all lived with/owned dogs in the past, offering their services in spoiling your dog/s rotten with attention. 😊

Additionally, I do dog-walking once a day (either a long walk or dog-park visit), offering additional walks if required for a little extra. Lastly, I’ll be sure to provide plenty of daily update photos/videos of your dog/s having the best time.

If there are any special behavioural issues I need to look out for (digging/chewing/food aggression etc) please let me know, I like a challenge 😉. I will require a meet-and-greet prior to any service (excluding pet-walking) and I have no problem coming to you providing the distance isn’t too horrendous. I want this experience for your dogs to be the best it possibly can be, so any preferences you have with sleeping arrangements, exercise, or anything else you can think of, I will be more than happy to accommodate!

Jarod took brilliant care of our dog, Theo. He kept us up to date with photos and regular messages. We are absolutley going to be using Jarod again soon whenever we need someone to take care of Theo!

If you ever need a dog sitter Jarod is your man. Our shepherd Storm had the best time and was so well looked after, it was great. We had videos/photos sent through which put my mind at ease to see she was having a lovely time.
