Hello, I’m Charlyn!
I’m a vet student at Murdoch University and pet sit as a hobby to earn some pocket money doing what I love. I've been petsitting since 2018 and have interned/volunteered at various vet clinics and shelters. 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.
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! We are currently at uni, mostly online so we are home 80-90% of the time and will be able to spend lots of time with your furbaby! We have the doggies indoors apart from toileting and when they don't want to come back in from running and playing 😆 At night, we place their doggy beds next to ours in the bedroom with the door open so they pretty much can sleep anywhere they wish.
I host doggy daycare most days and have my own cats so there will be no lack of furry companions, if that is something your pet would enjoy. The dogs I host are all fun loving, sociable and well-mannered in that they give other dogs space if they know they are not too keen on playing, and my cats are used to pups around everyday.
For cats, I start them off in their own room away from other animals to help ease them into the new environment. If they're doing well and with your permission, I'll then gradually introduce them to my own cats and allow free roam of the house over a few days.
For older dogs or those not too keen on playing, I am able to separate them in my partner's study with my partner if the others get too boisterous.
