Rose's Most Excellent Dog Company

Sandy Bay, TAS

I am a mature, quiet-natured lady who can provide your best pal with all the attention, exercise and affection they need to keep them happy and content.

A lover of all dogs, particularly dachshunds which I had for many years. I am based in Sandy Bay and I also house-sit in QLD.

Experienced with pups to seniors and dogs with special needs. 40+ years experience .

Pet First Aid/CPR course completed and I volunteer for Guide Dogs and Dogs Homes of Tasmania.

I look forward to meeting you.

About This Listing

I live with my husband, Michael. Our unit is a warm, sunny, calm and peaceful environment, just a short walk from the beach. A cosy space, so suitable for smaller and/or non-boisterous dogs only.

Your dog will enjoy good company with affection, plenty of smooches, puppy massage, tummy rubs, and intelligent conversation :-)

I only care for one dog at a time, or two if they are from the same family.

When I'm travelling interstate, I provide housesitting and dog walking.

Polly loves seeing and staying with Rose

Could not recommend Rose's dog sitting highly enough! Our two dogs came home happy and squeaky clean after three days with Rose and her hubby. She took them for daily walks, sent lovely updates and gave them plenty of cuddles. They absolutely loved her, and we do too for taking such great care of them!

Polly came back home calm and happy, so it was very evident Rose took great care of her.

Rose is a fantastic dog sitter with lots of experience. My dog naturally took to her, had a great time and was in the very best of care!

Rose and Michael Grubits from Tasmania came to my house to house and pet sit in July 2016 for 4 weeks whilst my girlfriend and I went overseas. They looked after my two standard longhaired dachshunds, my girlfriend’s poodle/Maltese cross, my two chooks and a peach face parrot. Michael had to go back to Tasmania during the 4 weeks but Rose was more than capable to house sit by herself. Rose and Michael are lovely people and are so good with animals. Their love for animals shows and my two dachies adored them. I couldn’t fault the way Rose and Michael looked after my house including the yard and pets in any way and would recommend them highly to anyone looking for a house sitter. When they came up to Brisbane last year for five months housesitting we met up again and my two girls gave them a big welcome.

Rose looked after my little Bella beautifully, better than I do. She was wonderful, she took great care of her. She also looked after my home. I could not recommend her highly enough. She is simply the best, do not hesitate.

Rose (& her husband Michael) looked after our 2 miniature Dachshunds, two cats and our house while we went away for 3 weeks in Canada. Bangers (3yrs old) is high maintenance and demands to share your bed at night, will tell you when it walk and dinner time and believes he is king of the house. Mash was only 12 weeks old when Rose looked after him and was like any puppy, still being trained and didn’t know where the toilet was. Rose was fantastic with both the boys, staying the night before we went away so we could go over everything with them and the boys could get used to them. We were sent regular pictures and updates on how everyone was going which made being away so much easier! Rose didn’t even complain about the many mishaps she had to clean up from little Mash! When we arrived home our house was cleaner than when we left it and although the boys were happy to see us Bangers cried at the front door for a solid 5mins after Rose left! Bangers reserves this treatment for me and his Nana only so seeing him upset about Rose leaving proved how well he was looked after and how happy and loved they must have been while we are away! We couldn’t have been happier with Rose and wouldn’t go away again without making sure she could stay with our boys.

My husband Paul and I met Rose and her husband Michael in 2016 in Hobart and they kindly minded our Mini Schnauzer Leroy. We returned to Hobart in 2017 and once again Rose and Michael looked after Leroy. On both occasions we were more than happy with the care and attention given to him. As we often spend time in Tasmania, we will definitely ask Rose and Michael in future and hope they will be available. As Leroy is a very special part of our lives, we are very particular who we engage to look after him and are so happy we have found the perfect sitters. It is our pleasure to recommend Rose and Michael as Pet Sitters and wish them the very best. We are confident they will have many more clients as happy and grateful for their service as ourselves.

This year will be third year Rose has pet and house sit for our family, while we travel overseas. I cannot fault her care and dedication to our dogs and our home. Rose has the utmost care and respect for our home and loves our dogs and they love her. We do not have to worry about a thing when we go on holiday. Rose is a kind, gentle, honest and completely trustworthy person. At the end of her stay our home is always as clean and tidy as when she arrived, the plants are watered, mail collected and washing is done. Also Rose very kindly has some food items ready for our arrival home from overseas which is greatly appreciated. I would not hesitate in recommending Rose and her husband to care for your pets and your home.

I would highly recommend Rose as a sitter for your pets. She and her husband lived in our house for 9 weeks and cared for our two elderly, (one blind, the other almost blind) mini dachshunds as if they were her own. This required her to get up during the night to take one to the toilet. She is a true animal lover. She looked after our house well and I would never hesitate to have her back to care for my dogs.

Rose took care of my Dachshund and my parent’s two elderly dog over a weekend. She was easy to connect with, and communicate. Rose was very caring with all our animals upon meeting them. They instantly warmed to her which was especially important as one of them required oral medication every 12hrs. I would happily have Rose take care of my pups at any stage. Highly recommend.

Rose is awesome, she's looked after my puppy Montana a number of times. Rose takes amazing photos and sends them regularly while looking my 5 month old puppy. She takes Montana for a regular walk. I cant speak highly enough of Rose. She's loving, caring and professional. I feel safe leaving my girl with Rose, every time Montana sees her walking up her driveway Montana gets excited because she knows shes in for a good day.
