About Sophie
I’m an experienced pet owner with two small, friendly dogs that would love to care for your pets! Based in Templestowe Lower, I am offering Pet Hosting, Day Care, House Visiting and Dog Walking for all surrounding suburbs! I am happy to accept both short-term and long-term bookings - there will be a discount for any bookings longer than 4 weeks.

You can be assured that your pet will have an enjoyable time and be well taken care of while you’re gone. All pet hosting bookings include a daily walk, so there is no need to select this as an extra! We are very close to an off-leash dog park and a walking track which your pup will love. My house is secure with a large backyard however during their stay they will sleep indoors!

Please note the below conditions of our services:

PET HOSTING:
- Only dogs are accepted for pet hosting
- If drop off/pick up times are not within 24 hours of each other, a day care fee will apply for the last day. For example, if the drop off is at 10am on Tuesday and pick up time is 5pm on Thursday, a day care fee will apply for Thursday.
- I can accept multiple dogs at any one time however I will let you know if there are any other bookings overlapping with yours. Please let me know if your pup requires any special arrangements - I will do my best to accommodate!

HOUSE VISITING:
- Dog walking must be selected as an extra for any house visiting bookings.
- The advertised rate applies to any suburbs within a 5km radius from Templestowe Lower. Any suburbs that are further than that will have an increased rate. You are more than welcome to message to negotiate pricing!

DOG WASH/GROOMING:
- This service includes a wash and blow dry only. This will be done at the end of your pup's stay and can be added as an extra for either Day Care or Pet Hosting!

*Please note: there will be an increased rate for public holidays and busy holiday periods*

You are more than welcome to message me if you have any questions or would like to organise a meet up!

Sophie is amazing! She’s such a dog lover, and was super attentive to my puppy’s needs. She sent me a few pictures (she’s quite the photographer too) to put my mind at ease. I’ll be making a regular booking with her moving forward!
