About Estelle
I love all animals and started looking after friend's pets when I lost my dog Maggie to age related illness. Through word of mouth, this extended to friends of friends and I can't think of anything more rewarding!

My dogs were rescue dogs who changed my life as much as I changed theirs. 'Jazz' a 'Whippet Bully X' and 'Maggie' a 'Heeler Bully' X. I couldn't imagine life without them but sadly, I lost Jazz in 2011 at 15 and Maggie at 13 in December 2015.

I live in the Adelaide Hills, a lovely area with great surroundings and close reserves. I have great neighbours aswel. Laratinga Wetlands in Mt Barker is a great place for walks and the dogs love it, though there are many places to take them in the area. I love getting lots of photos and do not include an additional cost for dog walking when sitting or hosting.

I work 2 days a week in the city and am flexible re location should you prefer me to take care of your pets in your home.

My own home is cosy with heating, air conditioning and a good sized, grassed yard and a small deck with a medium sized dog door so dogs generally love to sit on the deck and watch life goes by. There is also a long ramp, particularly good for any dogs who are suffering arthritis or other mobile difficulties.

I used to cook my own dog food and am happy to do so for anyone else. Aside from knowing what's in it, it can actually be surprisingly cheaper but whatever works for you and your pet works for me. You only need to provide the ingredients and I will do the rest, or if cash is easier, I am happy to purchase and provide the receipts. I generally use rice, veg and chicken and shop for locally well priced produce.

I have the space for up to 4 small/medium dogs though don't often have more this many... only if they are particularly social. If they are, it can work out great but I always do a meet n greet beforehand to make sure everyone is excited.

I am happy to pick up and drop your dogs home for no additional fee.

Small and large, young and old, active/ notso, your home or mine... if you are considering leaving your pets in the care of someone you can trust to love and care for them as I would my own, please give me a call.

I will be happy to provide references.

Warm regards, Estelle
