About Lorna

*FULLY BOOKED FOR CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR- SORRY!*

We are currently only able to accept doggy visitors on Fridays and the weekends.

We love dogs and will look after yours as if they are our own. We have been dog sitting through Pawshake since 2017 and have had lots of happy guests over the years - but we're always keen to add more pups to our pack!

About Me

I am a 30-something year old living on Te Atatu Peninsula with my husband and our 8 year old cavoodle, Eddie and energetic Springer Spaniel, Frankie. Eddie is very easy going and loves cuddles/napping while Frankie loves playing with balls and long walks.

Our philosophy is that a tired dog is a happy dog - and we love nothing more than seeing a tuckered out pup sleeping in front of the fire in the winter months.

Our house

Our home has a fully fenced garden at the front and another separately fenced garden area at the back so your dog will have lots of space to run around, or relax in the shade on a hot day. We can board up to two dogs at a time, as long as they are happy around our pups. We are only seconds away from local parks and the Peninsula coastal walkway is nearby. We are located off Te Atatu Road but we work in the city so pick up/drop off options within 10 km. are available.

Because we only have doggy guests when we’re working from home, we spend the day with them. Very occasionally, we will leave them alone for a very short time while we are out running errands, but usually you will find one, or both of us, pottering around the house or the garden with the pups roaming around.

Dog walks

We enjoy long walks and will walk your dog at least twice a day so they will receive lots of exercise. We often go on longer weekend walks or visits to dog beaches if your dog is confident and happy off leash.

We walk our dogs twice every day, usually for 40 mins to 1 hour at a time but we are happy to walk for longer, or less, depending on your dogs’ needs.

Sleeping

Our doggy visitors always sleep inside - either in a crate (if you provide it, and your dog is used to it), or roaming free (they often end up on the sofa, but we don't mind!). Please bring any dog bedding with you so your pup feels at home.

We offer a free meet and greet - it is important to us to make sure that your dog is happy around ours and gives you a chance to see where your dog will be staying. We offer optional photo updates of your dog daily so you can keep up to date. Treats are offered free of charge. Please provide us with any food your dog eats.

So grateful for the big run that our dogs had the day we picked them up! The weather was awful and we were too tired for their evening walk. The dogs were totally settled. Thank you!

Fantastic in every way! Thanks again for looking after Bivy. I'll definitely try to book her in again next time I'm away.
