Experienced House and Pet Sitter in Buderim

Buderim, QLD

I am an experienced animal lover. Worked with animals from Tigers to rats. I hold a Cert 111 in Animal Care. I have owned a variety of pets such as dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rats, bugs, fish, birds, horses, cows, chooks and goats. I understand what it is like to go away & leave your pet behind & therefore guarantee that I will give any pet that is entrusted in my care the best care that I can. I have also trained dogs in the past, & have bred and showed gun dogs. Big dogs is my speciality!

My place is great for all pets as it is fully enclosed and grassed. There is a covered patio area. I also have a bank of cages that can house rats, mice or guinea pigs. I have a movable and snake proof chicken pen. I am on call as 24/7.

Alison was a life saver, stepping in at the last minute and looking after my house and dogs so well that I could relax and enjoy my holiday. She sent photo updates and messages while I was away so I didn’t worry. My house was left very clean and the dogs were happy and healthy. I would recommend her to everyone. Thanks so much Alison

Thanks to Alison and family for looking after our darling Baxter. This was his second time there and he could not wait to get in through the front door. It was lovely to see photos of Baxter snuggling down with members of the family.

My 2 dogs were well looked after & loved on their holiday with Alison. I loved getting photo updates of my boys throughout their stay, they definitely made themselves at home! So glad to have found this so I will never have to book my boys into a pet resort/kennel again. Thank you!

Lulu's second stay with Alison - she was very excited to see Alison again when we arrived. We were also alot more relaxed after a successful first holiday knowing Lulu would be ok. Alison sent some lovely photos through of Lulu snoozing, chewing on a bone, and guarding her guinea pigs! Thankyou Alison!

Alison took great care of our little toy cavoodle fur baby. Especially since I came with everything but the kitchen sink! Yes, I'm one of "those" fur baby mums. But Alison didn't bat an eyelid. Over a couple of weeks we got plenty of photos of Lulu playing and happily enjoying her holiday whilst we were overseas on ours. Thankyou Alison!

Alison made it very easy to leave our two precious pups - one of whom is only 14 weeks old! We knew that they were in safe hands and would get the love that they are used to at home. We came home from our short break to two very happy pooches, thank you Alison!

I've known Alison for many years now. Alison is the member of Several animal clubs and organisations, attending with her many pets (family companions). She takes in many abused and neglected Guinea pigs and gives them a great home, transforming them from sick and skinny animals into fat healthy happy pets. Alison loves all animals, wild and tame. She's very caring, patient and understanding of them and their needs. She has had a lot of experience with the elderly/invalid animals in their twilight years and has been very accommodating of their needs. I cannot think of a better person than Alison to look after animals.

Alison is a genuine animal lover. Alison goes above and beyond for her own pets and those of others. I would chose Alison first before anyone else! I trust Alison so much so in caring for my pets, that it makes me feel at ease leaving them, I know they are in good loving hands!

To whom it may concern I have known Alison for a period of close to 6 years. Alison was a fellow exhibitor at Ipswich Cavy Club. Alison exhibited both pet and pedigree cavies to a high standard winning a range of awards including Best and Reserve Pet Cavy in Show. As Show manager, I am able to genuinely say that Alison looks after her animals and cares for them to a level like no other. I would trust Alison to look after any one of my animals as I know she would treat it as one of her own. I hope this reference is sufficient. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards Jody
