About Eileen
Hi There!
I am in my mid-50s and have retired early so, have plenty of time to give your pet attention and company. I have no kids, nor pets of my own, so yours are my substitute babies. I usually only take 1 booking at a time, so your pet would have personalised attention.
I do occasional volunteer work over the course of the year and through doing this hold current police clearances.

We live in Underdale facing the River Torrens Linear Park, have a fully fenced back garden with a small doggy door for access in and out of the house and to a small kennel. For the stays at our place we can only take dogs that have completed toilet training. SMALL or MEDIUM dogs that are fairly relaxed and placid. If your dog is more excitable I prefer to do it as a Housesit at your place.
We usually don't mind if your pet wishes to share our bed with us, if this is what they are used to as we would like them to follow their routine so that they are as relaxed as possible.

We tend to be requested to look after many pets that are timid of other pets. If this is the case let us know and we can reserve our place exclusively for yours. It is rare that we have more than one dog booked with us at one time, in any case.

If your pet is left alone it would not be anticipated that this would never be for more than 4 hours at any time, except on the rate occasion when it may be longer.

Happy to take them for a walk as part of the service if they are easy to control on a lead.

You will receive plenty of updates over the course so that your time away from your pet can also be relaxing and reassuring.

House Sits are undertaken by myself.
I only accept housesits in smoke free households.
Although I do not work and consider myself a home-body I still may occasionally require some time out of the house for myself so please discuss expectations with me.
Happy to take them for a short walk as part of the service.
Happy to administer medication but will need some direction if IV is required.

If your pet is left alone it would not be anticipated that this would ever be for more than 4 hours at any time.

I have been a part-time house sitter since my 20s and have also managed accommodation in the tourism sector so have a high level of maintaining cleanliness.

You will receive plenty of updates over the course so that your time away from your pets can also be relaxing.

At present, we are not considering any new dog walking assignments.
Anytime that I walk your dog I steer clear of any other dog walkers, taking a wide berth around them to avoid any potential issues.
I would not allow your dog off leash whilst they are under my care but I cannot avoid if another dog is illegally off leash. I attempt all precautions possible. A walk attached to a house sit or homestay would be 20mins duration.

Eileen is a wonderful pet and house sitter, I highly recommend her. Our two cats were so well cared for and super relaxed when we came home, which is a first! She also took great care of our home with the place sparkling on our return.

Made my holiday away very easy. Eileen is a superb dog sitter-doggies were very well cared for, making sure they were comfortable from the moment she first met them. Would highly recommend and hope she can look after them again.
