About Lu
** Please read RATES and SERVICES SECTION below prior to making a booking. Thank you! **

We are currently only accepting bookings for SMALL dogs, cats, and other small pets.

Hi there!

My family and I are more than willing to care for your pet as if it were our own whilst you're away.

We are super friendly and we will do our best to make your pet feel comfortable, safe and happy!

I will be constantly checking for signs of good health in your pet during the stay/visit and advise you immediately if I feel there's any concern.

I can provide companionship, play and administer oral medicine, and individualize the care according to your pet's personality and needs.

Our backyard is medium-sized and fully fenced, so your pet will have enough safe space to play. We also live near several great parks where we can walk to.

PUPPIES (3 weeks to 12 months) are so welcome in our home! You can be certain your puppy will benefit from our very safe, very clean environment, as well as the extra cuddles it will receive! :)

We accept indoor and outdoor pets and a maximum of THREE at a time during non-peak periods and four at a time during peak periods, so this means quite exclusive care and attention!

INTERACTION WITH OTHER PETS

We require that all pets have their vaccinations / worming / flea and tick treatments up to date in order to accept the booking.

We only accept disease-free pets and the house is frequently cleaned, as we live in it and we make sure the space our kids play in is clean at all times.

Your pet will only be allowed to mix with other pets if all owners feel this is acceptable. Please advise us if you wish or do not wish your pet to interact (have physical contact) with other pets at the time of booking.

In the case you do not wish your pet to interact with other pets, we ensure this by applying a strategic rotation system for each pet within the various spaces of the house, so they remain contactless.

If you require your dog or cat to be the only pet being looked after by us, please specify that at the time of booking, as the rate will reflect the exclusive service as per above.

Your pet can sleep inside or outside. We prefer your pet to sleep inside our home. In this case, for everyone’s peace of mind, it is imperative that the pet is child-friendly.

Meet and Greet – I will ask you to fill out a questionnaire providing details about your pet prior to accepting the booking so we better understand its needs and can provide personalized attention.

I will also need a copy of their up-to-date worming/tick/flea treatment and vaccination card + microchip to be returned to me along with the questionnaire prior to approving the bookings.

** COVID-19 precautions **
Due to the Coronavirus issue, we will only offer the service booked if we are healthy and symptom-free and we expect clients to be responsible and have the same precaution. We will ask you if you have returned from overseas in the last 14 days or had contact with someone who did. Kindly wear a mask at the time of drop off and pick up if you have been traveling outside Queensland.

Rest assured your pet will be well looked after and enjoy its time with us!

RATES

LOW and PEAK season dog sitting rates.

Please note that I have different rates for different dates according to pet sitting demand.

ADULT and PUPPY rates.

I also have different rates according to the pet care requirements.
We only look after puppies that are 8 weeks and older. We love puppies and they are so welcome at my home!

ADULT – 12 months and older (1 or 2 feedings a day)
PUPPY – under 12 months (2 or 3 feedings a day)
YOUNG PUPPY – 8 weeks to 12 weeks old (3 or 4 feedings a day)

The higher PUPPY rate simply reflects the extra time and care that puppies require due to their typical learning curve (e.g., extra cleaning due to common potty accidents, extra feedings per day, extra attention time, assistance with common behaviour issues such as separation anxiety, extra play time, etc).

YOUNG PUPPIES that are younger than 12 weeks usually require 4 feedings per day, sometimes frequent potting breaks, more checking and more attention and care overall, as they are very delicate and are in an intense routine transition period. So, the rate for young puppies of less than 12 weeks is slightly higher than the displayed and I ask you to contact me to get the correct rate and check my availability for the period you need.
