About Nancy
Having recently lost our darling boy Rocky (Pug/Pomeranian cross), I just miss my daily walks with him and the daily contact with dogs. I have been a dog lover since childhood and cannot imagine my life without dogs. Currently my husband and I are not yet ready to get another dog of our own. But I truly miss being around dogs so much. Not to mention, that I am less active without a pet. I am a stay-at-home wife and online student, so my schedule offers me a lot of flexibility during the daytime in the week, and on Sundays (send me a message so I can unblock the day for you, if available). In my photos you can see some of my previous dogs, or other pets I've been around.

I have had dogs since childhood, and have been caring for my own dogs since I was a teenager. I am very comfortable around other people's pets and always become friends with these furry babies. I also enjoy taking care of cats and guinea pigs. I have been around cats since childhood and have a deep respect and appreciation for these lovely creatures. As a kid, we had miniature hamsters and rabbits at home, so I am quite comfortable with smaller animals as well.

I would love to walk your small, medium, or large-size dog and will tailor the walk to your pets needs. The walk will be for 20 minutes for breeds requiring shorter walks, or for older dogs and puppies. For dogs requiring a longer walk, the walk would be 45-60 minutes as needed, not counting the drive to the dog park, if going to the dog park.

I am also available to provide day care for your pets at your home or mine. For doggie day care, I include a free 15 minute walk, but if you'd like one or more longer walks, please do an add-on to your day care booking (ask me how!). I offer a 50% discount on walks booked along with a day care booking.

I am available to do house visits as well, and can just pop in to make sure your furry baby is well, fed and taken care of. I will include some playtime (and cuddles) at no extra charge, but if you'd like your dog to have a full walk, please book an add-on service for a walk(s) to your booking (ask me how!). I offer a 25% discount on walks booked along with a house visit. I am happy to bring in your mail, put out bins, or water your plants when I am in your home at no extra charge.

Please note: If multiple visits are required during the day, there will be a $10 charge per extra visit.

My location is Sydenham, but I am willing to travel to St Albans, Albion, Deer Park, Caroline Springs, Taylor's Hill, Hillside and areas near these suburbs. I can do a key pick up and drop off before and after bookings such as walks or house visits ($10 surcharge applies to cover travel expenses).

All new customers need to do a Meet and Greet prior to booking a service with me. Please provide your full address an hour before the meeting (unless meeting in a public place), and allow for at least 20 minutes so your pet and I can get to know each other.

I promise to care for your pet as if he or she were my own, coming from a place of compassion, yet also providing rules and boundaries as required.
