I am living on my own in a house in Beach Haven with Lilou, my little Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
I’m an environmental engineer working from home (except sometimes on Wednesday) and I thought that I could help some working parents looking after their furry babies. I have a genuine love for animals and a calm demeanour. I consider my dog as a family member and will take care of your much-loved dog as I take care of my own.
A typical day for the dogs I’m looking after would start with a lot of welcome cuddles, followed by a breakfast (to be agreed with you), and a digestive/morning nap while I’m working. My home-office offers multiple comfortable doggy beds of various sizes, as shown in one of the photos. All the dogs have also total access to the fully fenced garden and can go in and out as they like through a cat/dog door. The backyard is fully secured with locked gates.
I’m having regular breaks from work over the day to spend time with the dogs outside or inside depending on the weather. Once a day, I’m bringing them to the local bush, located at the end of my street, for a 1-1 ½ hour walk. A stop at the Shepherds Park Beach and a swim in summer time (or winter time for the most adventurous) is always included, as well as plenty of time in Shepherds park and its off-leash area, giving the possibility to sniff around, play with the ball and run with their friends.
Once back and after a well-deserved lunch (once again, if agreed with you), they can chill wherever they want to in the house, because, let’s face it, the dogs are the queens/kings of the house (sigh) and have access to all the whole house, including the sofas and beds.
Time for drop-offs and pickups are flexible and can be arranged to best suit you.
So, in a nutshell, if you need a responsible and loving small dog sitter, send me a message!
