Hi, my name is Jacqueline (Jacq) and I live in a secure, leafy house in Lilyfield surrounded by dog parks. I have been looking after many dogs exclusively over the past few years to help get over the loss of my two 16 year old dogs in 2018/2019.
I have had pets all my life, from turtles, fish, mice, pigeons, reptiles, cats, dogs and a horse, (dare I say pet spider!) so I am very familiar with being around pets of all kinds.
Since the corona virus I haven’t had any dogs in my life as many dogs are enjoying being with their own family during lock down, so I decided it was time to adopt a rescue dog and I now have a gorgeous kelpie x ‘Coco’ who is 7 years old. She is very sociable and gets on very well with other dogs. A very gentle soul. A meet and greet is a must and I will only host dogs that get along with her (Haven’t met one that didn’t!). I will send regular photos and videos. Videos are great way to show you how well your dog is coping in your absence.
I am a stone’s throw from Memorial, whites Creek and Callan parks. I like to vary the walks so the doggies are getting new stimulation each time. I am a reliable, sensible and experienced dog person. I will guarantee your dog will get at least 2 walks a day, cuddles and attention.
Your dog/s will be treated like my own and get a fantastic long walk or a gentle walk depending on what your dog’s requirements are. All walks will be adjusted to suit your dog/s needs and age.
I service nearby areas to me e.g. Lilyfield, Leichhardt, Annandale Balmain, Glebe, and Rozelle etc.
My services and guidelines:
Hosting at my place: Your dog must get along with other dogs (Coco). They will be treated like my own, sleep in the same room, lots of walks and attention. I can only take one dog at a time as any more than two is a crowd. Preference is for short stays. Please note I am NOT hosting high energy dogs as I can’t have them off lead to knock some of that energy off and my backyard is not big enough for a good run, or dogs under 5 yo. It wouldn't be fair on them or my house!
House visiting: I can look after all your pets at your house, I can even feed the pet spider! In general, each visit is approx. 30mins. Extra cost for cleaning fish tanks, dog walking, grooming, house hold duties etc., price on application (each household is different). I am a DIY person so quite handy! I will not bring Coco to feed/walk your pets when visiting your house.
Dog walking: If you require a dog walk only I will ensure your dog gets a wonderful walk around your area socialising and enjoying being out and about. (Coco will have to come along for the walk due to her separation anxiety as I can't leave her home alone at the moment for long periods.) Dogs walks are in general 40-60mins in duration. I will only walk dogs between 9.30am and 5pm, and not in the heat of the day. ...
