I love all animals and started looking after friend's pets when I lost my last dog Maggie. 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. I couldn't imagine life without them but since they've been gone I have found great joy in sharing my time with other animals.
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 taking photos and do not include an additional cost for these or dog walking when sitting or hosting.
My 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 anyone suffering with 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 be surprisingly cheaper but whatever works for you and your pet works for me.
I have the space for up to 4 small/medium dogs though don't often have 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 a small fee to cover fuel if in the mt barker area.
Small or 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 contact me.
Warm regards, Estelle ...
