There’s nowhere like home is there?


If you are wanting someone reliable and trustworthy to care for your dog in their own environment while you’re away, I may be able to help you!


I can visit your home to feed, toilet, talk, walk and/or generally give your treasured dog some company.


Please refer to graphic for area I cover in Pyes Pa, Tauranga.


Who am I?


$25 / visit for 1 or 2 dogs

30 minutes minimum


$40 / visit for 1 or 2 dogs

I tend to stay another 10-15mins longer, tending to go with the flow with what your dog/s are doing even if just sitting and chilling with them.

With my husband, two dogs and three cats, I moved to Pyes Pa in November of 2000 and cannot think of a better place to live.

As well as a passionate dog lover, I am an holistic health professional offering BodyTalk for people and animals.    As a raw feeder of dogs I can also offer suggestions based on my own experience and learning, and provide online resources you may wish to review e.g. Raw Fed and Nerdy and Keep The Tail Wagging.
