About Tracey

Hello there. My names Tracey, I am a huge animal lover, I have been my whole life. As a little girl my dream was to run an animal shelter and one day (when i'm retired) I hope to make this dream come true.

In the meantime, I'd love to help take care of dogs in busy households. I have grown up with animals; cats, rabbits, dogs (Maltese Terriers, Japanese Spitz, Staffy, Golden Retriever). I currently have two amazing dogs of my own (Loki the Finnish Lapphund & Luna the Border Collie - you can check out their profiles).

I am committed to helping nearby animals live the best life they can. This is why I have decided to dedicate more of my spare time to looking after animals, outside of my day job.

I believe that in order to have a healthy and happy pet, they must be mentally stimulated (i.e. training and plays) as well as exercised EVERYDAY. I notice if my fluffs don't get one of the above magic combo for just one day - their behaviour and temperament changes instantly.

I believe in loving yet assertive dominance. Dogs crave structure and need to know I am their LEADER, but also to trust that I have their best interests at heart. For this reason I am good with both stubborn disobedient dogs (who need a little more instruction), as well as anxious pets who require a bit more TLC.

I am available for;
- Pet sitting in your home
- Drop in visits at your home, i.e. play, feed, refill water, check on.
- Play dates & adventures (i.e. hikes, the beach, even day trip to the snow!)
- Regular walks around the neighbourhood
- Basic obedience training during their walk or stay (heel, sit, drop, stay, roll over, etc. etc.)

FREE: I'll send you daily happy snaps of poochy.

**My services can be flexible depending on what poochy needs.**

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, due to Luna experiencing some anxiety (post being attacked by a stray dog) I can not currently bring new pets into our home .

I am friendly, professional, extremely thorough and insanely organised - you won't be disappointed and your poochy will have a great time with me! I will send you photos of your pooch loving life in my care for your peace of mind.

Tracey is a wonderful and reliable pet sitter. We had full confidence in her and knew our pets were in great hands throughout her stay. We highly recommend Tracey and will definitely get her to sit our pets again!

Tracey was a fantastic sitter to our 2 dogs. They were very well looked after and loved, so we felt very comfortable knowing our dogs were in great hands.
