- If you plan on picking up after 8 pm, I kindly ask you either a) book in for an extra night for morning pick up or b) have me drop your pet to your house prior to 8 pm

- I live with my Jack Russell, Pepper (11 years old) and six guinea pigs

- I cannot care for cats in my home

- I cannot care for unneutered male dogs older than 6 months, unvaccinated pets or puppies younger than 3.5 months in my home


Requirements for Doggy Day Care/ Home Boarding

VACCINES

- DHPP (Diptheria, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza & Parvovirus)


- Bordatella (a.k.a Kennel Cough)


- Flea & worming treatment


- Puppies of any breed must be 3.5 months or older with all vaccines to home board

Note: puppies younger than this should not be boarded by any reputable pet carer


Doggy Day Care


I take in a maximum of 6 pets for doggy daycare.


04/07/2018 - Please note due to the hot weather we are currently experiencing, our daily routine has changed until further notice.


I will not walk dogs between the hours of 1pm and 4/5pm as the ground and air is far too hot for them. Please see my daily routine chart above for more details.


Home Boarding

Home boarding includes all the benefits of doggy daycare with the added benefit of an overnight stay.


All pets get their own room to sleep in at night, or they can sleep with a doggy friend they have made during their stay.


If you pet alerts me during the night for any reason, I respond immediately.



Small Furries & Reptiles


Small furries and reptiles are monitored throughout the day via camera and in person.

I have a purpose built room for hampsters and guinea pigs with their own fridge for veggies, fresh supply of hay, bedding, soft furnishings, fresh water and D.I.Y toys.

This room is equipped with a camera that connects to my phone for constant viewing.

I visit and provide small snacks from my vegetable garden every three hours minimum.

I conduct full cage cleans in the evening after 8pm when my dog clients have been settled/gone home for the evening.


Dog Walks


Walks are 40 minutes long. For longer walks please book in for two walks on the same day. Always have treats, balls, sticks, & poop bags on hand. Experienced with leash training.


Home Visits


Visits are 40 - 90 minutes per visit, depending on pet type and needs


30 minute walk is included for dogs for home visits


- Playtime, feeding, water refills, clean any messes/cat litter trays, administer medications, let pets out to toilet


I usually naturally collect mail, water plants. alternate lights and take out the trash on my visits. I can also do any other specified tasks you would like.

Jack & Maggie had a great time with Faith, ran in to the house after a fun meet and greet session and were so well cared for that We would have no hesitation of recommending Faith and will be availing of her services again in the future

Sue, 2018-08-09

This was my first time using a pet sitter and I am so happy I found Faith. My dog Fortune had a great time staying with her for a weekend. It was a home from home. Faith is obviously a great animal lover and I will definitely be sending Fortune to her again. Highly recommended.
