About Carmen

Hold tight there's alot to read 

My home is in Remuera. I can drive to yours for pet minding or can look after them at my home. 

There are two FENCED ( wooden ,in the ground structures) courtyards and internal stairs . The drive is far away from the road as well. Dog toys  available and the furniture can be jumped on with sheepskins for comfort. As well as two new dog beds for choice. Generally the dog  sleeps with me in my cozy room. A baby gate either at the front door or before the stairs.

During weekdays I may  have bookings for Dog walking /boarding which  started well before advertising on Pawshake. So I included that in my calender availability if i can. I take along any boarding  dog with me for walks. If it is a preference that your dog stays at home all day ,my 22 year old  son steps in and either plays or sits with them while I am out for that hour

I put an effort into the safety and comfort of your beloved family animal. Allowing only one dog overnight helps those dogs from single canine familys relax quickly ,with more  attention to their needs. However just to reiterate I may have a day board scheduled. This isn't often.

Dog walking adventures

For walks I  go in the morning ,midday or early afternoon. I change up the walks every day to give them interest :

Mt Wellington mountain-off leash if possible 

Mt Hobson -off leash

Kohi beach -off leash Winter all day

Waitaruia reserve-off leash

Madills farm Dog park - off leash ,ball throwing,meeting dogs 

Cornwall Park -on leash only walk

Purewa Cemetery - on leash only( good for hot days and shorter walks with smelling being the mental exercise ) brachial / older dogs are good for this place 

OFF leash is dependent on whether the dog is capable of recall and instruction


If not there yet . I will leash them on a normal length or my 10mitre leash which I can let go off after watching how they act . This can be stepped on if need be.

All of these areas are called for under controlled Dogs . I manage interactions,  watch for escalations and  redirect.

I do have cautious Dogs that I particularly pay attention to their well being by giving them  positive feedback when they show confidence and help them gain it.

A dog pram is available for elderly or just a partime walker.

I live with my daughter who is a vet nurse at Abbots way vet clinic and my older  son .

My Daughter has a dog who lives with us. He is a 5 year old male. Nutured, relaxed and accepts all breeds. He is a Chavashon breed and medium sized( the black one in most of the photos)

Christmas holidays I looked after 5 homes, with multiple cats . Dealt with an injured Cat, cleaned and nursed his wounds. So I have proven to be reliable with flexibility and compassion.

I have an animal first aid kit at home as well as one  in my car for any accidents 

Also have extra leashes,harness , a dog carry front pack(small),seat belts and collars .

Specific dog pram for small to medium sizes 

MY EXPERIENCE so far:

Previous Dog day and boarding employee 

Animal first aid certified 

Police clean record certified 

Very good Dog  minding  references 

 Dog psychology behavior and training certificate - 2023

Completed the Chaos to Calm online training course

House sitting experience with references 

A previous private house cleaner for 10 years

Will continue with Dog training study

Coming into Animal care has been a very fulfilling experience for me. Coming upon this through my daughter who was studing to be a vet nurse and working at a cattery . It drew me into this world of care and maternal protection. 

So you can be rest assured I will look after your family pet like my own

Thank you for considering me

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Meeting your Dog will be outside my home, so he/she isn't bombarded with other dog smells  and giving them a little time to met me ,helping them relax first. 

INFORMATION:

OVERNIGHTS 

Is ,one Dog at a time overnight ( just for the positive experience of the dog)it's not a big place, enough for 3 dogs and 3 humans.

The dogs  usually   behave  different to their regular relaxed home . They tend to pace more, get over excited and I try to keep to their routine , whilst encouraging them to have rest breaks to help settle them. Having a hyped up doggo is not healthy at long lengths of time

Important information 

As I am on other websites and have regular returning clients from them.A booking can't be definite until you have booked in and paid .

There are always enquires and they dont all follow up and book /pay. Hence  I cannot hold the dates I am sorry.

The rate is in reflection to the cost of using Pawshake with their 19%  deduction per booking.

I can do a discount for 2 week long stays or longer but the app still takes off the same amount me.

DAYCARE

Is also one dog and as above. It is not a big place for 3 dogs(including our Yuki)

If I have other dogs to walk I bring yours along or can use my Dog pram or front pack.

DOG WALKING

I do not do one offs

I can do one walk every  week,being a permanent situation 

 I have found a dog relationship is built on respect , so this developments our bond.

I need to eventually trust them and share an enjoyable experience.

Mabelle & Mauricio, 2024-04-30

Ozzy really enjoyed his time with Carmen. We received daily updates and pictures from Carmen which really gave us a peace of mind while we were overseas, knowing that Ozzy is in very good hands. Carmen made sure that Ozzy gets his daily walk and even a nice birthday treat! We couldn’t have asked for more from Carmen! Will definitely book with her again!
