About Sonya

Home Boarding: duration 24hrs

My home is always been an open home to all Fur Babies. I have always had pets and love being around animals.I have more free time and would love to utilize it into something I enjoy. I care for all my family and friends fur babies when they go on holiday etc. So I would love to extend this into the community.I am very flexible with my time. I live with my husband, Who is home all day so your pet will never be left on their own, I work part time 4 days a week in the afternoons. We have a 12 year-old Huntaway Cross Whiskey, she is very friendly and loves the company of other dogs. Unfortunately she has just been diagnosed with liver cancer, she is still loving life and has burst of energy during the day.

My home is always open to our neighbour's dog (Heaven) who come over to play with Whiskey daily. I have a fully fenced section with the indoor-outdoor flow with plenty of shade, and plenty of room to run around and explore. Whiskey is very spoilt and can sleep on the couch/beds etc. So I’m not too fussy on having your fur baby sleep there too, I know some dogs need it for extra security. Lots of free cuddles< tummy rubs and treats readily available.I have a first aid certificate and can administer medication if needed. I also a separate fridge/freezer to store special dietary needs. We have lots of walkways for on & off-leash for walks and for a good runaround, every morning there is a social group that catch up at the park for the dogs to have a good run and play. Also if your dog is happy to get in the car to go to the beach There are many beaches in and around the shore, parks, reserves and forrest walks. Which are broken up during the day from 1/2hr to 1hr

or as per agreement at the meet and greet

Home Visits: duration 30mins

Pet minding services are half-hour visits where I will Bring your pet outside to toilet area, feeding, Water top, Medication Administration (if required) clean any applicable enclosures, and engage with your pet.

Sonya and Cameron looked after our dog Sophie so well and she had a great time with them and their dog Whiskey. It was lovely to receive the daily updates and photos of their activities with her during her stay. It gave us real peace of mind while we were away. Thank you again.

I felt really comfortable leaving my 'full of beans' border collie Rosie with Sonya and Cam, and certainly came back to one very happy dog. I could see by the photos Sonya sent me daily, that Rosie was going on plenty of excursions and having a great time playing with the other dogs. Sonya and Cam exude a relaxed and welcoming vibe that instantly made Rosie feel quite at home, and I can't thank them enough for taking such good care of her.
