About Leona
My name is Leona and I am a young professional working mostly from home in St Kilda. Puppies and dogs make me so happy and I would be delighted to look after your dog while you are away.

Having grown up in the countryside in Ireland we always had dogs and cats in my family and I am really missing having them in my life. Until I can get myself on a more permanent visa in Australia I am not willing to make that big commitment of owning my own dog over here but I would be absolutely delighted to look after yours just as it was my own.

I have experience of looking after dogs for over 20 years and I have also been a regular volunteer at the MADRA dog shelter in my home town Galway for over three years walking the beautiful dogs that are waiting for adoption. If you didn't know, Madra is in the Irish word for dog :)

I live in a spacious apartment in a very dog friendly building with a generous balcony for fresh air and just a few minutes walk from the beach and parks. I love having a doggy friend to take to on my morning/evening walks down the pier or in the botanical gardens and to keep my company while I work from home for a few days each week

All stay with me will be inclusive of walks, playtime and plenty of positive reinforcement of good behaviours.

Please message me if you have any questions and I would be happy to help. I hope to meet you and your furry friends soon
