Please note I offer Pet Day Care only in my home. I can do House Visiting but only to feed and walk, thanks. ******************************************************************** I'm so glad to help people looking for a home environment for their fur baby (up to 20kg only) while they are on leave. I have an average size yard to explore and a comfortable 3 bed home to enjoy, cool in summer, warm in winter.
I love having all friendly vaccinated dogs up to 20kg in my home to stay from a day to long term. I will care for your dog like they are my own, that is, with love and lots of attention. They sleep in my living room or wet areas depending on doggy door experience and during the day, have access to the garden as well as the house. Lots of human interaction is provided as often as possible. I am currently working from home so there is a lot of human interaction available than usual. Please provide your own food, treats, toys and bedding. I will feed the dogs and provide treats separately to ensure no problems ensue. (Dogs that attack other dogs [inter-dog aggression] and bite people [fear aggression] will not be accepted and should be hosted in a kennel; dogs with separation anxiety can only be accepted if they can be crated to avoid damage to doors). Barking dogs should be housed in a kennel also.
The first visit can be a trial and sometimes an error. If an error, the client will be advised and assisted with finding a more suitable arrangement for future sits. I can also offer dog walking and dog grooming with the sitting as I am a professional dog walker and dog groomer:
Dog Walking - So it is fair to those pet parents whose dog does not require walking during their stay, IF YOU NEED WALKS INCLUDED IN THE SITTING, PLEASE TICK THE Add-on Services (Step 3) for the service you are booking when making the BOOKING REQUEST. Please note I double leash dogs to ensure if a collar slips, the harness will secure the dog and vica versa.
With the Mad Paws System, if walks are selected, it will add them to every day – you cannot select one or two walks for five days of hosting for example. If you only want a walk every other day for instance, call me and I will reduce the cost of the walks while you are making the booking.
Dog Grooming - Dog grooming services include basic washes right through to breed clipping. Fees will depend on the service you choose. The $99 rate advertised on this website is the fee for a dog between 5-10kg requiring a full standard teddy clip. So for example, a wash only is far less, but a full poodle clip is more. Please call me anytime to discuss the service further as I can readjust the fee before you book. As a groomer, even if you do not request grooming as an additional service, I will always at a minimum, keep your pet's face and rear clean. This is the advantage of choosing a sitter who is also a groomer.
On arrival, please park in the driveway, call my mobile and I'll appear at the white side gate.
1. IF AT ANY POINT A DOG(S) WILL NOT BE SUPERVISED FOR A SHORT PERIOD DUE TO RUNNING AN ERRAND OR ATTENDING AN APPOINTMENT, the dog(s) will be safe inside and can be separated from other dogs if necessary.
2. PLEASE ALSO NOTE I ONLY ACCEPT TOY and SMALL DOGS. Occasionally I will accept larger friendly dogs depending on the size of other dogs if any others are being sat.
3. To book multiple dogs, firstly ensure you have added all the dogs to your profile. Then on the right of my profile page, select the service you need e.g. Pet Hosting. Under the Heading ‘My pets’ select how many dogs you are booking. For example, 2 small dogs and one medium dog. Scroll to the bottom of this and hit Apply – it isn’t visible until you scroll down.
Then select the dates you require and click on ‘Contact Angela’.
At step 2, make sure you click all the pets you need included.
At step 3, select any walks. Note, as described above, the system will add them to every day – you cannot select one or two walks for five days of hosting for example. If you only want a walk every other day for instance, call me and I will reduce the cost of the walks while you are making the booking.
At step 4, include your message.
4. I kindly ask all dog sitting clients to wash their dog on the day of delivery or if not possible, at least the day before - this is greatly appreciated given they will be staying in a family home.
5. The house visit service fees listed are for one hour.
