About Anna
I have experience with a range of animals and am a mature, caring, and responsible professional. As an animal-lover and smitten dog owner, I know how precious your dog is to you and will look after your pup like it is my own. If your dog doesn't get along with other dogs, don't worry - I can also accommodate this.

*Important note: I now work in the office from Tuesdays to Thursdays. On these days I can only take dogs who are happy to be left on their own during the day, and who do not bark a lot if left. From Tuesdays to Thursdays I therefore don't charge full price - get in touch and we can discuss. If left alone, they will be indoors, in a dog-safe play room, with a live video/audio feed to my phone. For extra peace of mind, I also have a real-time GPS tracker that I attach to guest dogs' collars. From Fridays to Mondays I can be there with your pup all day and night :)

I have a large house and yard, including a roomy, dedicated dog-safe indoor play area, and will make sure your animal has a fun and comfortable stay. I work on international development programs improving animal and human health, and love having animals with me throughout the day and night. Your pet will be welcome inside at all times, while also having supervised access to a large fun and safe outdoor area (for dogs).

All dog hosting services come with free daily walks, and plenty of games and stimulation to keep your animal happy and occupied. I only use positive behaviour management approaches, and am experienced with puppies as well as adult dogs.

I'm careful to watch out for your dog's health. For owners of breeds prone to GDV, rest easy - I strictly keep exercise and food a good 2 hours apart and always have my eye out for any signs of illness or distress. I check paws and ears daily, extra carefully during grass-seed season.

For animals who like company, they can play with my very friendly and joyful 2 year old standard poodle (desexed and C5 vaccinated). If your dog doesn't play well with others, that's ok too - just let me know in your booking enquiry so I can arrange things accordingly.

I will take the time to fully understand and cater to any special needs of your pet, and will keep you updated with lots of pictures and videos so you don't have to worry while you are apart.

I am happy to consider animals with behavioural concerns but will need to know full details prior to booking, to ensure I am able to provide an appropriate environment for them.

Please note:
- for the safety of all dogs visiting, I will ask for proof of C5 vaccination
- for overnight pet sitting, the rate quoted is for up to 24 hours
- apologies but I cannot book dates too far in advance due to occasional travel requirements for my job

Harley enjoyed his stay and cuddles from Anna and family. Regular updates and photos from Anna made our break relaxing. I would highly recommend Anna and will use her services again for future holidays.

So caring and thoughtful. Wonderful not only to walk and feed my dog but also for some emotional cuddle time as our furry friend missed us while we were away. Will bee using again if we can!

Anna was great. It was a huge relief knowing Olive was being taken care of like one of the family not just in a kennel all day.

Anna has been so good at taking care of Friday. She made sure he feels at home and is not stressed in any way. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing sitter for their pets.
