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:

- 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!

- 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!

- 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!

Pet Hosting - Feb 28, 2021
Absolutley amazing! Sophie kept us updated regularly on our little boys first holiday away from us! He stayed with sophie for 10 nights and he absolutely loved his time with her. She was so friendly and easy to communicate with! We realised 12 hours before we were meant to go away that our puppy wasnt able to go to the kennel and Sophie was available. Definatley would recomend. Obi will be back!
