I love all animals. I currently have no pets as I’m young, and it’s not the right time in my life to make such a commitment as I travel a lot. This is my opportunity to look after your pet as if it were my own. I live in a townhouse with my partner, who is also an animal lover. Located a stones throw from the Main Street of Kyneton, your pet will have what it needs when it needs it. I love exercise and the outdoors, so your pet won’t be sitting around watching the time pass by, but rather out exploring. Whether it’s a walk to Kyneton’s botanical gardens, or a short drive to Black Hill Reserve, your pet will see it all. I grew up on a farm with dogs, cats, birds, horses and the list goes on. So you can have piece of mind knowing that your pet will be in safe hands.
Basics - Pets I have had experience looking after: dogs, cats, birds, rats/mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, frogs, chooks, ducks (If your pet isn’t listed above, don’t worry, I will look after them for you). - All services will include daily updates/photos if requested. - Upon request I can give your pet medication, along with any other special requirements. - Pet bathing is available for $10. - Prices are strict, however I am open to negotiations depending on the request.
Pet Hosting (your pet stays at my home) - Between the hours of 6pm till 6am the baseline overnight fee is $60. - During the day, from 6am till 6pm my rate is $20 an hour. - The max amount I charge for 24hrs is $220 e.g. say your pet is dropped off at 5pm and picked up at 5pm the following day; I will charge $60 from 6pm till 6am (standard overnight fee), and during the day I will charge $160 which is $20 an hour for 8 hours. - If your pet stays for more than 24hrs then discounts apply as follows: 2 days is $200 per day, 3-5 days is $150 per day, 6-7 days is $125 per day, and 7+ days is $100 per day. - For stays of 3+ days, your pet will be bathed at no extra cost upon request. - Dog/pet walking is included in any overnight stay. - Please make sure yours pets (specifically dogs) are clean before they are dropped off. - You will need to provide their food and bedding; Basket/pet bed, cage etc. - The above costs are for dogs and cats. Other lower maintenance animals are generally half the price, and pricing will be discussed upon request. - Refer to ‘Transport’ for travel fees if applicable.
Pet day care (my home or yours) - A 'session' is 1 hour. So my rate is $20 an hour. - This service is offered anytime during the day, just send me a message and we can organise the details. - If I am looking after your pet for 5+ hrs then a walk is included in the price if requested. - Please refer to 'Pet Hosting' to see prices for overnight stays. - The above costs are for dogs and cats. Other lower maintenance animals are generally half the price, and pricing will be discussed upon request. - Refer to ‘Transport’ for travel fees if applicable.
House/Pet visits (I visit your home during the day) - Price includes two 1/2hr visits per day. If you only require one visit the price drops by $5. - You don’t have to have a pet to use this service. I will water your garden, bring in your mail and put out your bins (more upon request). - If you have pets then play/cuddles is a must. - Dog/pet walking is available for an extra $10 (refer to 'Dog Walking' for more info). - Refer to ‘Transport’ for travel fees if applicable.
Dog walking (your home area or mine) - Walks are a minimum of 1/2 an hour. - Up to two dogs at a time; after two dogs price will go up $5 per dog - Number of pets are negotiable and depend on the size of the pets. - Can walk animals other than dogs upon request. - If you are requesting walking with other services (i.e pet hosting, pet day care or house visits) then discounts apply.
Transport - If I am driving to and from your specified location then the below information applies: - Pick up and drop off in Kyneton is $10 - Pick up and drop off outside of Kyneton will include a fuel surcharge. The surcharge is 0.50c per KM to and from the booking. Eg: you live 15km away from me. I drive there and back (a total of 30km), so the fuel surcharge will be $15 (30x0.50=15). This will become the total transport cost. - If you are using my services for 5 hours or more, and you are less than 30km away then no travel fee is required. - If I am required to pick up your pet for an overnight stay, and you are less than 30km away then no travel fee is required.
Feel free to ask me any questions. I am open to negotiating prices, and special requests. ...
