Hi there, my name is Charmaine and we are an animal loving family, and a home where I can assure you peace of mind when leaving your dogs in my care. I am married to Edmond, have 2 sons- Zane 17 years, Jayden 13 years, 2 dogs Lulu 7years ( Silky), Bella 4years (Shih Tzu-Maltese) and a 2 year old red eared turtle.
I grew up with animals and cannot ever imagine not having our pets in our life. I'm fortunate that my husband and sons have the same compassion for animals, especially my 13 year old that will make
sure all our pets are comfortable, usually at bed time. There are no off limit zones in our house for our dogs, and their favourite place is to lay on the couch looking out the window facing the road. Every night each son will take a dog to bed with them, but through the night Lulu & Bella will sneak out into our bed. Although my house is always neat and tidy, toys are scattered all over on a daily basis. Lulu absolutely loves her stuffed toys, and Bella gets excited every time she hears a bell or sees a ball.
My aim is to utilise my abilities as a pet owner to benifit you and your pet. I'm a business owner working from home, allowing me flexibility and therefore I can alter my schedule to meet your needs.
Our family's nurturing ways combined with my experience ensures your pet gets the best possible care under any circumstances. I am a reliable loving person who pays special attention to your pets and I'm genuinely concerned about any animals needs.
I have looked after our friends dog "Boots" for a period of 5weeks. During the week of Christmas and in July we were enjoying 5 dog's company in our house.
We have an enclosed medium back yard with the deck leading onto the grass area if your pet enjoys the outdoors. Lulu & Bella spend most of the days indoors and love soaking up the sun on the couch. I'm happy to take your dog for walks when they do overnight stays, as we have lovely walking paths around our area. I normally don't exceed walks for more than 3 kilometres at a time.
When holidays should be exciting times, my heart would normally break to see my dogs pleading eyes and anxious behaviour as we are packing. There are no better holiday when you have the reassurance that your pets are well looked after, and being loved.
My promise to you- as soon as you and your pet walks in the door, you WILL feel welcomed!
Molly had such a good time staying with Charmaine. She got on really well with her 2 dogs and other family members and I am sure she would have loved to stay longer.
Charmaine sent me lots of photos and kept me up to date with how she was going. I wasn't a bit worried about her and was able to enjoy my holiday knowing she was in good hands. I would highly recommend Charmaine to any dog lover.
Charmaine is an incredible host! My dog was very happy to be in her house and play with other dogs 😊 next time when we leave the city my dog will stay with Charmaine only 😊
