Hello! Thank you for looking at my profile.
I‘m a primary school teacher, originally from the UK, working at a local primary school as a full time class teacher and my partner works shift work.
We have a 2 year old golden retriever, Teddy, who loves everyone and adores all dogs. He is used to cats, horses and farm animals.
We have had a huge range of dogs come and stay with us. Often dogs that are shy/nervous come round and relax pretty quickly as Teddy is a very chilled boy and helps them feel relaxed and safe.
Energetic dogs are not a problem and we have also looked after dogs that require specialist diets.
Young pups are most welcome too. Teddy has fostered 2, 6 week old pups recently and is very tolerant/gentle with them.
We will only look after friendly/gentle/well socialised dogs as Teddy is submissive, even in his own home :)
Your dog is welcome to bring their crate, if that is what they are most used to sleeping in. Or Teddy is happy sharing one of his many beds (usually preferring the floor).
We are available most weekends for your dog to come and stay with us.
Sometimes, we have dogs that stay longer and that is something we can accommodate too, depending on my partner's shifts.
We will always do a meet and greet before looking after your pet to make sure everyone is happy.
I own a horse who I ride each day. Teddy comes with me and he has a buddy there called Sadie. There is a lot of land for them to run around on and they have an absolute ball.
I love going out and exploring Auckland and Teddy always comes with us. Teddy has explored the majority of the North Island with us and we are always out for coffee etc.
We have a smallish house, which has a large secure deck and a decent sized garden for the dogs. The fencing in the garden isn’t too high so we couldn’t have a dog who jumped/likes to escape.
We are semi rural and have a private driveway with lots of fields for walking in. We also live next to a dog friendly park and the beach.
We are a registered foster family for Auckland Puppy Rescue so sometimes have a foster pup with us too :)
I’m mature, friendly and reliable with lots of experience. I am also police checked here and in the UK :) as is my partner.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Vicky and Teddy
We are so happy to have found Vicky to look after our Phoebe. Vicky was awesome, great communication and really cool how she sends photos during Phoebe stay and Teddy was great company too. We would totally recommend Vicky.
Vicky is great!!! Our dog Jet had an absolute great time :-)
