About Alana
My name is Alana, I'm 26 years old and a lover of all animals. I have owned and cared for animals from a young age with dogs iv'e owned ranging from small Shit-zu's to large greyhounds. I currently own a 4 year old spoilt Miniature Poodle named Charlie. Although i do confess to loving dogs most of all I have also previously owned and loved a wide range of pets including a cat, rabbit, fish, frogs, hermit crabs and rainbow lorikeets so i have a wide range of experience with all types of animals.

As a loving parent to my fur-baby Charlie, I understand the worry and anxiety for pet owners when they are faced with the dilemma of what to do with their beloved friend when they are going away. A kennel seems like a cold and unfamiliar place to leave your friend (not to mention horribly expensive!). Your next thought is to ask a family member or close friend but you're not sure whether they have enough experience looking after a dog all the time to be able to keep your dog safe. I.e. shutting the front door or gate behind them. Your 3rd option is to ask me!

By having me come to your house your beloved friend can stay in an environment where they feel the most comfortable and secure. They know exactly where their food and water bowl is, where their favorite comfortable bed and toys are, and they feel comforted staying in an environment which is familiar to them with all of the usual smells and objects your pet associates with home. I have a lot of experience doing home visits for pets and have found that contrary to what some owners worry about, their pets actually cope very well staying at home and they come to look forward to my daily visits and are quite contented to have a snooze through the day until i come over. I can quickly form connections with animals and they come to love me very much. Each time i visit is cause for much excitement and happiness.

Each visit to your pet includes:
-checking your pets water bowl and filling it up if necessary
-feeding, based on instructions you provide on how much and how frequently
-plenty of pats, love and affection
-play time with their favourite toys
-a 30minute walk (for $5 extra a day. This is optional)

-I visit anywhere in Ballarat for $5 per visit. This cost includes a free meet and greet visit where i come out to meet you and your pet at your house before you leave to talk through details of the visits.
-I can enter your house and your pet via back doors, garages, back gates etc to give you peace of mind that noone will be entering or walking through your home.
-I can administer medication to your pet if necessary
-I can also collect mail from your letter box while you're away and for a few extra dollars can water any plants you are worried about that might die while you're away in the garden.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Alana was great! She made an effort to really get to know our kitten Jeff and he loved her visits. It was our first time leaving him and Alana made the whole experience much easier. We loved her photo updates and will definitely book again!

Our trip away was made so much better knowing our pets were in Alana's safe and caring hands. We were provided with constant updates and photos by Alana while we were away. Highly recommended. We will use Alana again. Simply brilliant.... 👍👍
