About Corinne
ATTENTIVE INDIVIDUAL CARE: I only accept 1-2 dogs at a time.
Hi, I am a retired educator/librarian (60 yo), home loving, no other pets or children, and over a period of 18 months I sadly farewelled my 3 fur babies to old age (18, 17, and 15). Whilst still getting used to my new-found freedom, and not ready to adopt a new fur baby, pet minding seems like the purrfect option for me. I really miss the companionship that my two dogs and one cat gave me.

I offer a quiet home, no other pets or children. I don’t go out to work, am home all day, enjoy walking to the local cafe, live just 300m from a dog-friendly beach, gardening, relaxing, etc, and am now in a position to offer a clean and quiet home for your darling baby whilst you are away, including daycare and overnight care. Your baby can sleep on my bed, be the centre of attention, lovingly looked after, with extra special attention and loving if they are timid and not used to being away from you. I can help train your puppy, too!

I specialise in small non-shedding dog breeds however, having said that, I adore calm Golden Retrievers. Dogs can expect daily walks to the local cafe, the dog-friendly beach which is just 300 metres down the path, around the estate lake, brushing and grooming if you (and they) would like that, will all be on the agenda. I have a dog Croozer (trailer) if they are not up to long walks. There is a doggy door leading out to a fully fenced courtyard. My property fronts onto a park, so if your dog loves the outdoors, there is plenty of space for him or her.
Please choose your preferred service or discuss with me to tailor the service to suit you and your pet’s needs.

ESPECIALLY FOR CATS: I absolutely love cats. My home is fully screened, quiet and secure with nice hiding spots for the timid cat. I can host your cat in my home if I don’t have a canine guest staying at the same time, otherwise I can provide a home visit service.

A home visit will involve cleaning the kitty litter tray, feeding, grooming, lounging around, playing, talking, individual attention, chin rubs. I am more than happy to groom him/her, have him/her on my lap, cuddle, and play, depending on your cat’s particular likes and dislikes.

Come and visit my home, and meet me, and be assured that your fur baby will be in capable, loving, and experienced hands. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on “View More Information” to read more about my services and level of care provided.

Corinne was devoted to Louie. She sent regular photos and updates so that we knew he was safe and well. He was taken on many walks during his 3-night stay.

Returning to work, Corinne made me feel confident and relaxed & provided perfect care & attention for my puppy. Excellent communication throughout his stays with her. Buddy was always happy when I collected him and happy to return for his next visit.
