Hello, I’m Charlyn!
I’m a vet student at Murdoch University and am doing pet boarding as a hobby to earn some pocket money doing what I love. My housemate and partner, Ben, has grown up with and lived with animals his whole life. Needless to say, we love all pets and animals!
I've been petsitting since 2018 and have interned at various vet clinics and volunteered at shelters in the past. These experiences have imparted to me countless skills and knowledge so fret not while on holiday, your pets will be safe and loved while boarding with me. If needed, I am able to administer medication.
I host doggy daycare most days and have my own cats so there will be no lack of furry companions good for socialisation, if that is something your pet would enjoy :) The dogs I host are all friendly, and my cats are used to pups coming and going so are chill!
For cats, I'd start them off in their own room away from other animals to help ease them into being in a new place with minimal stress. If they're doing well and are friendly, I'll then gradually introduce them to my own cats and allow free roam of the house over a few days.
