Pet Sitting at mine (Eltham) or yours (Greater Melbourne area) )

Eltham, VIC

Hi, I'm James & I've had dogs almost my whole life. My wife and I are happy to let your Pooch, Cat or Rabbit crash with us in our home in Eltham, or I can likely house sit at yours if you're located in or around the Greater Melbourne area. My current Dog is a Beagle+, so I'm very used to dealing with dogs that like to escape... Keeping doors closed and food away from little noses is now second nature to me. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

About This Listing

Our house is in a quiet suburb with lots of parks and walkways very close by. The garden is fully enclosed and quite large. There are also a number of areas that provide shelter from the sun, wind & rain. As our dog is often in the house and your dog is welcome to be inside with us (or as he or she wishes). I walk our dog twice a day, yours can come along too.

James and the beautiful Beagle ‘Bella’ provided a warm loving home where our 12 week Alaskan Malamute puppy stayed overnight for 24 hours. James provided updates to us via text to assure us our puppy was happy. Absolutely and totally recommend James to sit our and other dogs. He was knowledgeable and caring. Fabulous experience where our puppy was cared for and got to have a Socialisation experience. Thanks James.

James was fantastic to deal with , kept me up to date at all times . Would highly recommend and definitely would use the services of James again when I need a pet sitter.

James has made the PetCloud experience so comfortable and a breeze. Not only was he a genuinely lovely professional and reassuring person with excellent communication and responds to your queries at all times, his natural love and care instantly for my puppy showed that he genuinely loves minding pets. It was so nice to see my puppy happy when he arrived there and the same when I picked him up. He loved it there, especially having a companion Bella! Thank you James for making our first PetCloud experience a great one!

I cannot recommend James highly enough! My dog, Ruby, is a very active dog and loved her time with James and his dog, Bella. Ruby enjoyed walks and trips to the dog park daily and often twice a day. James maintained contact with me while I was away entertaining me with photos of my happy dog and stories of what she had been up to. I am always very anxious leaving my precious pooch with anyone, not anymore!! I feel 100% confident knowing she will be well cared for with James.

I would highly recommend James. Scout stayed for seven days and was super happy when I dropped him off and the same upon our return. James made sure Scout had plenty of exercise each day too.

Very happy with James’ efforts puppy-sitting our Baxter. Excellent communication, and James’ pooch, Bella, was a gorgeous beagle mix which I’m sure Bax enjoyed playing with. Thanks for looking after Bax,
