Do you need someone to watch your new puppy while you return to work?
Has your dog been enjoying having you at home, and is now distressed when you go to work?
Maybe you just want your dog to have a better quality of life, with space to run and play with other socialised dogs while you’re at work or on holiday.
If you want personalised care for your furry family member, then I'm the person for you. I have been caring for dogs professionally in my home for over three years, and I now have a dog of my own that can play with your dog(s) too.
I offer Daycare for dogs that need smaller, more intimate/personalised care that professional Doggy Daycare can’t offer. Yes, I am home all day. Doggy Daycare is how I pay rent.
I also offer overnight Boarding in my home where they can have full run of my home and yard and sleep inside a warm (or air-conditioned) house.
I only take on dogs that are socialised and fully vaccinated dogs (puppies should be as vaccinated as they can be and won’t be taken to dog parks unless fully vaccinated). The health and safety of all dogs in my care is paramount.
I strongly believe in the importance of socialising dogs with humans and other dogs. If you are working on socialising your dog, I am happy to discuss your dog’s needs so that I can continue the work you are doing while your dog is in my care. I have helped several dogs learn “How to Dog”, and I’m more than happy to work with you to help you socialise your dog if that’s what they need.
I have a friend that is a professional dog trainer and I am the person that she entrusts to look after her dogs when she goes away on holiday and can't take her dogs with her.
I use Positive Training techniques as demonstrated by Zak George on YouTube.
I can also use Corrective Training as used by Dog Manners and Formal Dogs dog training and chaperones. For the most part, I try to continue whatever training, commands, and barriers your dog is used to while they're with me. If they're not allowed on couches, that's how it will be. If they are allowed on couches, I'll gladly have them curl up next to me.
My home is on a quiet street and my back yard is fully fenced. I have recently moved house, so I am yet to get everything set up the ways it was at my previous home, but we’re getting there. My previous home was modified to comply with the Victorian Code of Practice for Home Animal Boarding, and my new home will be too once I’ve finished unpacking.
I have a National Police Check, a (Victorian) Working With Children Check, and a Certificate III in Animal Studies.
Make my day and let me care for your furry member of the family. Let's book a time to meet so that we can all get to know one another, you can see the space in which I’ll care for your dog, and we can discuss your dog’s needs.
Tilly and I look forward to meeting you and your doggie(s) soon.
All the best
Raz (and Tilly)
