Once again Dawne took great care of our Rocky while we were away for 10 days. Dawne is very caring and compassionate and I had zero worries leaving Rocky in her very capable hands. Her home is lovely and is the perfect home away from home for my dog. Received daily updates and pictures and really appreciated them. All texts were responded to very quickly as well.

Dawne's Petzone

Animals have always been part of my life.

My mum still reminds me how even as a young child I had an connection with all creatures.
I have always treated them with respect, kindness, love and necessary guidance.
I have had experience with all ages, shapes, sizes and attitudes.
I also have experience with special needs and their concerns.

The responsibility of taking one of your furbabies into my care, is one that has been ...

What Dawne would like to know about your dog

Communicating with owner to find out what their fur baby is all about.

I want to make the experience as positive as possible for everyone involved.
It is important that you are up to date with all necessary shots and prevention.
Necessary contact information here at home, while you are away.
If their are any special medical needs or concerns.

When you are away, I want you to feel stress free and confident that your family member is in an secure, happy and loving environment.

Concerning overnight boarding, in my profile I communicate that I will take 2 dogs into my home. If you have 2 dogs in your family then they will both be welcomed.

While boarding one dog, I will get your approval before another would be considered to be boarded at the same time.

Also, if you have dog that is above my weight requirement but is a senior and part of a duo, I can also make exceptions.

which are open or have enclosed dog parks, depending on your pups needs.
