About Sonia

My name is Sonia, both myself and my husband Javier are dog lovers. We came from Spain one year ago with our dog, Maddie. Unfortunately, she passed away last month. She was our baby, our happiness, our everything... We miss her so much and we miss having a dog so badly that we have decided to share our home and our love with other visiting dogs. We both got dogs when we were younger (German Shepard & Cooker). And I rescued Maddie and Dobby from an Animal Rescue Center in Spain in 2014. Dobby got heart congestion failure and sadly died in 2017. Maddie got ulcerative colitis (an autoimmune disease that affects the gut) and some food and skin allergies, but she happily lives with us until she was 13. So we are used to taking care of dogs with special needs. I also have experience taking care of rodents (mouse, hamster, chinchillas).

We have years of experience in dog sitting, walking, grooming, playing, belly rubbing and sofa cuddling.

We will love and take care of your four-legged baby as it was ours.

Please, we only accept well house-trained dogs. Our apartment has got a medium patio, but we don't like leaving dogs outside all day. We live in a quiet residential area in Blarney, plenty of green areas around!

Boarding

I am

full time available every day of the week, your furry friend

will be looked after and take care of with the best attention at all times. The home

boarding service is 24h,

this means that you may pick up the dog at the same hour that you will drop off the latest.

If you need to pick up the dog later it will not be a problem but you may book a daycare service via Pawshake.

We have got a car, so if there is any emergency we can transport your furry friend to the vet.

You should bring enough quantity of your pet's food to make sure we don't run out of it and avoid any change in your friend's diet. Feel free to bring also toys, blankets, beds, or anything that would help your baby to feel at home. If you can't we can provide all those things.
