About Vicky
As a child our house was never without a dog (and numerous other pets), and I believe that there’s no more loyal companion than a dog. We’ve had our Japanese Spitz, Henschke, since 2010 and he is an integral part of our family and a wonderful and gentle “brother” to our two young children, who adore him. Growing up with pets teaches us so much about caring for others and the meaning of friendship and loyalty, and I am keen to instil those values in our 6yo daughter and 3yo son.
Henschke is a gentle and friendly boy, and loves to have other dogs to play with. We’ve looked after dogs of numerous shapes and sizes in the past and he always welcomes them onto his turf with open paws! I work part-time but mainly from home, so am generally around the house. Henschke stays inside when we’re out and sleeps downstairs, as do any fur guests (unless they’re happier outside!).
We have a fully-fenced garden and live very close to the dog park in Leichhardt (though we wouldn’t let your dog off the lead unless you say it’s ok to), so there’s plenty of space for playing. We live in a townhouse so can’t take noisy dogs, in case we get in trouble with strata, and we also can’t take dogs that get up on the furniture or might chew the kids’ toys, or cause destruction if left alone. Dogs must also be completely housetrained. Most importantly though, any canine guests must be used to and completely safe around young children. Before agreeing to take a dog, we’d always do a “meet and greet” to check everyone is happy.
We’re also fully vaccinated, including our eldest, and a non-smoking household.
