About Mark

I have owned and looked after dogs for 15 years and have been around them all my life. I previously had a lifestyle block where we had sheep, goats, chickens, Budgies and Cockatiels. I have handled a large number and variety dogs and helped train them thr my involvement in gun dog field trials.

I will give your pet lots of love and attention and treat them like my own. Having used pet sitters for our dogs both here and in USA I appreciate how important it is to have somebody who is reliable and competent to look after your pet when you are away and will make sure I keep you informed with regular updates if you prefer that.

I work full-time Monday- Friday but am available to hang out with your pets from 5 pm - 7.30 am Weekdays and all weekends and holidays. I have a police clearance certificate and am a mature responsible pet sitter who loves animals. 

As I have recently returned from living in the USA and my 2 'fur babies' Bella and Sammy have not made their way home yet I would love the chance to hang out with your pet and give them lots of love and attention.

I also have experience breeding Labradors as well as Small birds, sheep, goats and chickens.

I am happy to tailor walks to suit your dogs needs as I know that older and sometimes some smaller dogs need shorter walks than old girls like our 15 year old Lab Bella! Am happy to walk for 30 minutes or more if that is desired and can take them to a dog park if there are any nearby.

I can stay for up to an hour at a time for home visits or am happy to stay overnight in your home if that is acceptable.

Mark looked after our two donkeys over a weekend and was helpful, an excellent communicator and donkeys were in fine shape when we got home. Paddock tidy and we would recommend unreservedly! Thanks Mark.
