About Jillian
Hi, I'm Jillian the Happy Paws Dog Sitter!

I provide dog daycare and dog walking. I also offer overnight dog sitting, home visiting, grooming and more! I am a full time, experienced, professional dog sitter. With many years of dog ownership and experience, there's not much I don't know about caring for your four-legged friend. To ensure best attention and care, I take limited dogs at a time. Bookings in advance recommended!

Your dog will enjoy the comfort of a caring family home environment. We have a large, secure fenced yard with plenty of room to sniff, run and explore. Along with the fundamental needs (food, water, shelter and comfort - yes, your dog is welcome inside), we provide a calm, balanced, stress-free and safe environment. Jillian and her two happy doggos will provide company, attention and enrichment for your dog to ensure he is kept occupied and happy.

Why choose Jillian?
• Experienced, full time, professional dog sitter and groomer
• Pet First Aid trained
• Insured, registered and Police Checked
• Experienced with special needs (incl. separation anxiety & service dogs), medicine administration & allergies
• Convenient location close to Newcastle Airport & New England Highway

Services provided:

DOG HOSTING - I offer a drop-off dog sitting service - the perfect 'home away from home' solution! Owners can rest easy knowing their dog is getting quality care and attention from a dog-loving professional.

DOG DAY CARE - Let me mind your dog and you can go to work (or the cinema!) guilt-free. I keep your furry friend happy and entertained when you can't, with an understanding that all dogs have different behavioural needs based on their breed and age. Your dog can run, play, socialise, explore or just chill out in a safe and supervised home environment.

DOG WALKING - Does your best friend need a lot of exercise and excitement? Forget boring walks around the block, let us take your dog on an adventure! Your dog will enjoy off-leash play, socialisation, stimulation and the outdoors! We visit a range of locations.

HOUSE VISITING - We visit your home to feed, water, cuddle, walk and check on your dog while you’re away.

GROOMING - Your dog can enjoy a bath or groom during his time with us.

* NOTE – Only happy, very socialised dogs are accepted.
Your dog's vaccinations and flea / tick / worming treatments must be up-to-date.
