About Sara

I am an American and NZ resident living with my Kiwi husband and our 4 year old/25 kg boxer mix and our three year old Griffon. I grew up with cats, dogs, mice, fish and even a tarantula! I love all animals and it would be a dream to get to take care of them for a living! I am very confidential and professional. Willing to take dogs on a walk in all weather conditions.

I try to be as flexible as I can be, working with your schedule as I know different pets need different assistance. I believe in rewarding good behavior when it comes to training. (Positive reinforcement training) I have no restrictions on the size or breed of a dog. There is no such thing as an aggressive breed, only bad or unknowledgeable training. With me you will get a focused and proffesional dog sitter/walker with over 15 years of pet experience. I will send you updates throughout my time with your pet and photos if you request. I know how important trust is when it comes to pet children.

I am happy to chat with you about your pet needs and schedule a meet and greet once you send through a booking request. If you don’t feel I’m the right pet sitter for you you can cancel the booking with no penalty. 

For dog boarding at my home we go on a morning and evening walk daily. I work for myself from home with occasional outtings in the evenings once my husband is home so your dog/s are never left alone when at my home.

It's important to me to make your pet comfortable including sleeping conditions. Our two dogs sleep in their crates in our bedroom at night and we are happy to follow your dogs sleeping habit whether that be in our kitchen, in our bedroom, in a crate etc. The property is fully fenced with paddock fencing as we are rural and we have a gate we can close. 


*Please do not schedule a meet and greet with me if you have a contagious or sick dog as it puts the health of my dogs in question.
*I prefer dogs that aren’t fully outdoor dogs as we are rural and I don’t feel comfortable leaving any animal outside alone. Please only toilet trained dogs/puppies.

Not taking bookings from Sept-Dec 2022. Thanks to all my clients and their lovely dogs for a great year!

We first did a trial night to see how well Bailey did being away from us. She barely missed us, which meant we were very happy to book 2 nights at Sara's place for her while we were away. I have no doubt Bailey loved it and she was happy and sleepy after we picked her up. Will definitely book again

Sara was a great babysitter for our Ziggy. I have no doubt he had lots of snuggles and was treated like a prince.

Sara was great from first contact and really helped us out on short notice. When we got home the house was very tidy and Ziggy very happy 😊

Would highly recommend.
