Kia ora, I am Amber. I grew up on a small rescue (no-kill) farm. My dad had a big heart and took in other farmer’s “reject” animals and cared for them as pets. In turn, I was shocked as a grown up to hear people ate their pigs and cows. However, we also took in any strays that found their way to us, as well; dogs and cats. I have always had an animal with me.
Now, I have two rescue chihuahuas. One is aged 10 and the other is 6. They get along quite well and really enjoy being around other small/toy breed dogs. Small/toy dog temperaments are quite delicate and it requires a compassionate and doting person to understand the small/toy breeds and their very sensitive dispositions.
I have been a teacher for 10 years. It has taught me much about patience, working with people, compassion, boundaries and organisation. It has also amplified my love for the dog world. I am stepping out of teacing and moving into full-time dog care with a lifetime of knowledge and experience in my toolbelt. I am learning dog grooming and intend to offer specific services for that, as well. Only vaccinated and kennel cough dogs permitted. Updated flea and worm maintenance.
I am HAPPY to take your dogs for a short walk ( 10 - 20 minutes with day care once per visit or 2 times a day with dog boarding or 30 - 60 minutes day rate ) through the DOC bush walk near my home and/or down to the beach - all on lead! Dogs sleep where is most common for them; in the big bed, in their kennel, in their own bed. Just let me know what works best for their routine and comfort.
The yard here is fully fenced with plenty of sunshine and shade, grass and deck. When indoors, beds are placed in front of the sliders to embrace the sunshine. I look forward to caring for your dog-babies as much as you do. Nama”Stay” with us.
Amber and her lovely dogs were lifesavers! Such beautiful care of my puppy, and went above and beyond to make the stay over smooth for both me and puppy. Thank you Amber!
I am Pet First-Aid certified. Dog Gurus: Dog Language 101 certified. FetchFind Dog care trained. And am presently taking courses on dog grooming to add specialisation to our toy/small dog breeds for proper pampering.
