About Sara

Hi, I'm Sara.

I work from home and live with my 9 year old son Remy and our 5 year old Fox Terrier Patch. My son and I are interested in dog sitting as it means we get to spend time with different dogs, plus have some canine company for Patch. I work until 3pm in a home office, then pick up my son from school. I prefer reasonably calm dogs as I am working at a desk and can't be watching them during my work time. My property is fully fenced with a large garden, and there's a dog door for small dogs to come and go in the garden as they please. Some of the fencing is around waist height, so I'm probably not suitable if your dog is a bit of an escape artist and will jump a short fence to get out.

Patch normally gets two walks a day - one in the morning and one in the afternoon or evening. We live 5 minutes walk from the Hutt River, so this is normally our dog walking area , where the dogs can go offleash if desired. Patch is quite timid, so you can be guaranteed your dog will feel happy and secure at our house, but she loves other dogs, so would be great company for your pet.

For dogs staying overnight, I always ask for them to come with their own food, bed and toys.

My experience so far has been that most dogs are comfortable very quickly in our home, and enjoy their stay.

Thanks,

Sara.

Sara was amazing! She is really experienced looking after dogs and our dog seemed to love staying the week with her, her son and Patch! Sara kept us regularly updated and our dog has settled back into our home really easily! I highly recommend Sara and we will be using her again for sure!

Sara did an amazing job looking after my elderly dog, Max. I would highly recommend Sara to any dog owner. She sent me regular updates about how Max was settling in so I had no cause to be worried.
