Your fur child's home away from home

Islington, NSW

Hi, My name is Carmela and I absolutely love dogs. I have a 17 year old Cattle Cross named Ben. We lost Sandy (Jack Russell X) in June 2018. She became paralyzed due to meningitis in May 2017 and we had to change her nappy like a new born baby. It was tough but she was well worth it.

We do whatever we can to keep animals comfortable, safe and loved. We look after several of our friends and families dogs when they're away, we love it! So we thought why not make a hobby out of it.

About This Listing

We have a pet friendly house, with a doggy dog so dogs that are inside are able to go in and out as they please. The house is suitable for dogs to be inside or outside. Cool in summer as we leave the air conditioning on when we leave the house and warm in winter as well insulated with gas heating.

Excellent service. Carmela and her family are very caring and welcomed my dog into their home from the start. Thanks for a great day!

Another wonderful experience with Carmela and her family. I am completely confident that Maddie is not only well looked after but that she is loved. Highly recommended !!

This was our first experience at leaving our Beaglier with a sitter. From the moment we started communicating Carmela was lovely. I received photographs and updates throughout the stay and Maddie was certainly treated like one of the family. Carmela (and her family) are friendly, caring and kind. I have no hesitation in recommending Carmela and will absolutely use her again in the future. Thank you so very much !!

I highly recommend Carmela and her family for pet minding services. They are amazing and always treat Della as one of their own. My shyer dog loves visits with Cam and comes home after each stay with a little more confidence. While I'm away I am comforted by the regular updates of whatever activities they're up to that day, and am grateful for their flexibility in working around my sometimes changing schedule. We will definitely schedule more visits at Della's 'home away from home' with Cam in the future.

Carmela & Ryan were exceptional carers for our special family dog Sugar. They went outside the box to make our family feel comfortable our girl was being looked after well. We traveled interstate & was regularly given updates via phone with pics, videos & info that made us all feel at ease for the entire 5 days we were away. The Pet Cloud platform needs some work, also the communication was ordinary due to them obviously being so busy over the school holidays. End result is fantastic though! Will definitely be asking Carmela & Ryan to pet sit next time we go away.

- Reference

Carmela & Ryan looked after our young Kelpie cross Sugar for 5 nights whilst our family went interstate on holidays. Carmela went above and beyond to make sure Sugar was comfortable. Within a few hours of our holiday, we received pictures & updates of Sugar and the fun they were having. The heat was around 38 degrees and Carmela made sure Sugar was not only entertained but also cool and happy. We would receive a pic of Sugar on the doggy pool and next a picture of her in the house with lovely cool air cond. Carmela made our family feel confident that we could trust someone else with our Sugar for a period of time. Our family have no hesitation booking holidays now due to no stress of having to source a carer for our dog. Carmela & Ryan are lovely people with a heart of gold for animals. Thanks guys! :-)
