My names Kristen, I’m from Australia and have always had a dog growing up, who are a part of the family. I've always been dog obsessed, often detouring and crossing the road to go pat a cute dog haha. Whilst studying at uni I started a pet walking/ boarding business part time for a few years and I just loved it! It gave me plenty of experience with all different breeds of dogs (big and small) and met some really great personalities. It also taught me how to deal with pets which fret for their owners when they first leave, which I found was always a big concern.
My home has a lovely spacious lawn for the dogs to run around during their stay. It has a secure fence all the way around with the only access out, is through the front door. We also have a big dog friendly park up the road which we would take your dogs for regular walks each day.
I always discuss with the owners how many walks your dog requires and for how long, but genuinely about 45mins twice daily. If a dog comes to stay during the week, I work during the day-and Dan my partner works in the evenings, thus the dog will only be left by themselves in the house for approximately 2-3 hours max. I’m currently working from home until next year however, so the dog will be with me all day :)
We enjoy having a dog in the house as we have no pets of our own currently. We are such big dog people, and your pet will be loved and cared for whilst in our care. Happy to send pictures of your happy pets whilst you’re away as well :)
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out!
Kristen and Daniel looked after our dog so well!! Our beloved dog was happy and energetic and had some great walks and pats. Kristen kept us well informed during our week away with some great photos!!
Our unruly beagle youngster was well cared for.
Kristen sent us lovely photo updates and was very flexible and accommodating. She took him on 2 walks and playedcwith him all day. Would definitely recommend!
