PET SITTING

BECAUSE THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Boarding kennels and catteries are great for some dogs and cats, but can be stressful for others. My pet sitting service offers an alternative. Your pets remain in the comfort of their own home amongst familiar surroundings and I call in to check on them once or twice a day or more! I will feed them, refresh water bowls, clean litter trays and droppings from the garden, walk or exercise the dog and spend quality time with your babies - lots of cuddles guaranteed!  Being at home means less stress for the furkids and peace of mind for you!

No dogs or cats? No worries! I also care for birds, fish, rabbits, chickens, ducks, ferrets, guinea pigs, turtles, frogs and lizards!

Other services include mail collection, putting the bins out and watering plants.

You will receive regular updates and photos via email or sms.

PET SITTING FEES

Fees are based on single daily visits. Extra costs apply for more than one visit per day. 

20 - 30 minute visit – Ideal for VIP cats that prefer their own company to that of mere humans! Or for the independent pet that doesn’t like too much fuss, just food, water, litter tray clean or poop scoop and a few pats.

PRICE - $30 per visit

45 minute visit – All of the above services but with more time to pamper your pets, or to include a short walk.

PRICE - $40

60 minute visit – The same features as the above 2 packages, but can include a longer walk or a brush and extra play/cuddle time.

PRICE - $50


Public holiday surcharge - $15 per day

Discounts apply for bookings over 14 days


All packages include mail collection, and putting the bins out and back in. The longer packages include watering the potted plants if required. If you book more than one visit per day, I can also switch lights/radio/tv on and off to give the appearance of the home being occupied.

 

DOG WALKING

LET ME DO THE WALKING FOR YOU

Most people these days are so busy working long hours, running a household and taking care of the family, that sometimes their furry family members miss out on a walk. If you are in that boat, don’t feel guilty… just call me! I do 30 minute or 45 minute walks around your neighbourhood, at the beach or the local park, from Mon-Fri during business hours. I offer a personal service so your dog (or dogs) receive my full attention! This service is also ideal for older folk or people with physical disabilities. You can choose anything from 1 to 5 walks per week. Discounts apply if you book 3 or more walks per week on an ongoing basis. I walk in all weather conditions – except extreme heat, which, let’s face it, no one would enjoy! Raining? No problem! Most dogs love walking in the rain and so do I, so if it’s a wet old day, your pooch doesn’t have to miss out on his walk. You can also use this service if you would just like someone to call on and spend some quality time with your pet rather than take them out for a walk.

Dogs walked on leash, except at leash free dog parks (unless advised otherwise), or at the owner’s discretion. I do walk dogs with good recall leash free on the beach, but only with the owner’s consent. I never walks dogs leash free on shared footpaths and walking tracks. As I don’t do group walks, my attention is devoted solely to your precious furbaby! Treats are provided at the end of each walk, but again, only with the owner’s consent. My dog walking service does not operate on weekends and public holidays (unless it is part of a pet sitting package).

OTHER SERVICES

DOG BOARDING 

***NO ROOM AT THE INN***

Regrettably, I have had to suspend my dog boarding service for the time being as I currently have 2 extra, long term tenants. I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The following carers provide in-home dog boarding in the southern suburbs.

Jan & Tom Dog Minders 0403955634

(Christies Beach) 

Nanette Dog Carer 0413016851 (Warradale)

If you would rather your little buddy not be left 'home alone', why not take advantage of my boarding service. My furbabies will keep him or her company till I get home and a daily walk is included (weather permitting). There are some restrictions due to limited space and because I work during business hours. I can only take small dogs who are dog and cat friendly and up to date with vaccinations and I can only accept 1 or 2 dogs at a time. 

While I'm out, they remain indoors and have the run of the house with access to an enclosed outdoor cat run, where they can toilet. When I'm home, I love nothing more than snuggles on the couch. And I have a big comfy bed that your babies are welcome to share with me and my dogs! So next time you go on vacation, consider giving your furbaby a vacation too!

Unfortuantely I can only take small dogs. If your medium to large dogs need boarding, I can provide contacts.

FEES

$35 per 24 hour period (or part thereof). This is a flat fee and applies all year round. Public holiday surcharge does not apply to this service.

WATERING SERVICE  

This is a year round service, but is ideal for the warmer months. I provide a garden watering service so your plants don’t kick the bucket while you’re away. I will water your pot plants and if required, can pop the sprinklers on for a bit too. While the sprinklers are going, I can sweep up the leaves on the paths or the patio. I can also clear the mailbox and put the bins out on bin night so it doesn’t look obvious that no one is home. The good thing is, you don’t need to be a pet owner to take advantage of this service!

FEES

Fuel charges may apply.

15 minutes – Suitable for a small amount of indoor or outdoor pots.

PRICE - $15

30 - 45 minutes – If you have a few pots and a small lawn area.

PRICE - $30

60 minutes – Ideal for large lawn areas or a large amount of potted plants.

PRICE - $40

PET TAXI 

For vet or grooming appointments or doggy day-care drop off/pick up. Booking is essential and I will require at least one week’s notice. Air-conditioned car with seatbelts and I can provide a cat cage if required.

FEES

DOG WASH

In your home, or at a self-service dog washing station. Can use your doggy wash products and towels, or can bring my own. Blow dry and brush included. (NO CLIPPING)

FEES

$20 Wash and towel dry

$25 Wash and blow dry

POOP PATROL 

It’s a job we all dread, so why not let someone else do the dirty work for you! Even if you don’t require pet minding or dog walking, you can still take advantage of my poop patrol service. I will scoop the droppings from your garden or litter tray, bag it up and place in the general waste bin. If you prefer, I can place it directly into the organics bin. I will wash out and refill litter trays. While I’m there, I will check the water bowls to make sure your furbabes have plenty. And of course there will always be time for a pat or a cuddle and a treat (with your consent).

FEES

Fuel charges may apply.

Once a week

1 dog -  $20

2 dogs - $30

Twice a week

1 dog -  $30

2 dogs - $40

If you need poop patrol more often, add $10 per day.

All my services include a free initial consultation. During this meet and greet, we fill in the booking form (with no obligation), you can show me the ropes and of course your pet can check me out! It helps your pet recognise me when I come back to start our visits/walks.

Public holiday surcharge applies.

Fuel charges may apply if you are located more than 10kms outside the Morphett Vale area (for all services except Pet taxi). My pet taxi service has slightly different terms.

Discounts available.
