Dugandan, QLD

I left Darwin after 17 years and travelled in a caravan with my Greyhound Josie in 2015 for a year and eventually bought a house in Boonah. In that time of travelling, we did multiple house/pet sits, looking after dogs, chickens, horses, calves & gardens in small homes to farm properties. I settled in this scenic area because it is so peaceful, a wonderful safe community and lots of places to bush walk and walk dogs. Honestly, I can't imagine anyone who could care for animals more than myself.


About This Listing

My home is on half an acre with lots of trees, a fully fenced secure backyard in a quiet street & neighbourhood. The property is perfect for all fur babies to run free, play and sniff. I do a daily reconnaissance to keep the yard clean. The wide veranda has a dog friendly couch & plenty of room for beds during the day. Inside, there are 2 more comfy couches. My gentle 2 are used to being with all types of dogs from large to tiny & enjoy the company of our guests. Daily walks included.

Other Skills
I was a committee member & treasurer for GRANT (greyhound adoption program NT) when living in Darwin and was involved in organising events to raise money for greyhounds. I was also a foster carer of many who had just come from kennels so I am very familiar with their character, behaviour and special needs. In my teenage years, my family had Shetland Sheepdogs which I showed in Victoria, NSW and Qld. I have recently returned from Phuket where I volunteered for 3 weeks for Soi Dog Foundation.

Helen was absolutely wonderful when our dog Hamish stayed with her for 7 nights! She kept us up to date during Hamish's stay with messages, photos and fun videos of him playing. She has 2 wonderful, friendly and playful dogs of her own, and my Hamish had a fantastic time playing with them both. Helen was very accommodating and competent in caring for Hamish's specific needs, and we felt at ease knowing that Hamish was being cared for extremely well. He was also loved as part of her own fur family during his stay. Her facilities are great, with a large covered pergola for shade, and a well kept large backyard for the dogs to explore and play in. Helen lives in Boonah, and we found it very easily accessible from our location in Warwick. A great location for us when traveling through to Brisbane. I highly recommend Helen for your dogs too!

Helen was great with our 2-year-old Border Collie, Sadie. She responded quickly and booked the job straight away. The little updates throughout Sadie's stay were very much appreciated.

There are very few people I trust with my animals and Helen is one of the chosen few. Not only do I trust her implicitly with my dogs, she was also a foster carer for a greyhound rescue I set up. I would recommend her to look after your dogs, cats and birds and love them and care for them as if they were her own.

I have known Helen Taylor for around 20 years. Among our common interests is a love of animals of all shapes and sizes and I know from her many previous house/animal sittings through Trusted Housesitters that she has loved any opportunity to care for horses, cows,cats and of course dogs! Helen has a passion for rescue animals and that means her saved greyhounds lead a pampered life of luxury..Anyone fortunate enough to have Helen care for their home/animals/garden would be more than happy and welcome her back any time. Sincerely Maxine Bowman

Helen as done an amazing job caring for my two Labradors Brandy and Shadow. She stayed in my home for a month and the dogs love her. She kept the place clean, sent photos and updates of how my babies were doing. Followed the protocol for medications and gave them lots of love and cuddles. Helen also watched Brandy and Shadow in her own home for two weeks after she relocated to my community. Helens great communication skills were present from our first interaction to the last. She's an animal lover and a responsible pet owner. I would defiantly have her look after my home and doggies without hesitation. If you have any further question do not hesitate to contact me at trishnash@hotmail.com Sincerely, Trish Nash
