** UPDATE: I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO TAKE ON NEW CLIENTS. APOLOGIES!!**
I initially signed up to Mad Paws to help people with their dog walks during the day, but my partner (Ben) and I have LOVED all our recent dog hosts! So, here I go updating my profile.
We live in a two story house that has secured tall fencing all around. Our flooring inside is wooden and access to the front door or to our living areas is via stairs. The balcony overlooks the street and is a perfect place for your doggo to keep track of our neighbours :P Our garden is a large space, with no delicate flowers, and is perfect for relaxing in the sun or playing ball. Your doggo will have full access to the garden and the house throughout the day (we are working from home at the moment). They will also have their own sleeping space in a nook (repurposed study room), secured by a baby gate, right opposite our bedroom. We keep our bedroom door open throughout the night to keep an ear out for any unrest. During the stay, we will take your pet out for at least 1 long walk during the day. Although, we usually go out for a morning walk, have plays in the garden during the day and go for an evening walk. On the weekends, when we can, we love going on days out to the beach or doing a trail run. Walks and activities with your pet is all included in the hosting fee! Its pretty much a guarantee that your pet will be active and looked after during their stay! :)
If your pet allows, they also might make a great friend with our next door neighbour Border Collie x Kelpie, Jatz! We like to include her when we can as she is such a good girl and gets very curious about our new fur friends.
If you have any requests for their stay, just let me know your needs and I'll do my best to make it happen!
Experience: Moved to Brisbane in Feb 2020 from Vancouver, Canada, where I worked as a dog walker through a similar app to Mad Paws. I did this for about 7 months across Summer and Winter, whilst I came to the end of my work holiday visa. I'd take dogs on single walks and would have about 7-9 walks scheduled a day. I've had a bunch of experience with different temperaments, behaviours and breeds (not to mention weather conditions!). Previous to to this, I'd walk my neighbours dog and had a family dog growing up, who I miss very much. I have also helped out at shelters. Ben is a natural with animals and is very active with them. He enjoys long runs, especially with a dog by his side. The dogs we have hosted have really enjoyed playing around with Ben and respond well to his commands.
Location: We live in Balmoral, but happy to travel to surrounding areas for walk bookings.
Thanks for checking out my profile and reading this far!! Can't wait to meet you and your furry friend! ...
