About me Lea G.

I am the proud owner of an adorable 13 yo Spoodle named Toby, who lost his partner, a Cockerspaniel, a few years ago. Because I had looked after many dogs in the past and had a great desire to help people by obtaining decent accommodation for their dogs, I had given it a lot of thought and joined with Holidog as a Petsitter. I also thought it would be company for my darling Toby ! I have a great love for all animals, especially dogs and I'm a strong advocate for the rights of animals! believing in what Animals Australia strive to achieve right across the board for neglect & cruelty to animals. It is important for me to know that your dog/s are well socialised and are vaccinated (have a current C5 certificate). I only take small to medium-sized dogs and take two dogs at any one time. There are two quite amazing parks within close proximity to our private home, where the dogs are able to enjoy themselves. You can be sure that I w...

I am the proud owner of an adorable 13 yo Spoodle named Toby, who lost his partner, a Cockerspaniel, a few years ago. Because I had looked after many dogs in the past and had a great desire to help people by obtaining decent accommodation for their dogs, I had given it a lot of thought and joined with Holidog as a Petsitter. I also thought it would be company for my darling Toby ! I have a great love for all animals, especially dogs and I'm a strong advocate for the rights of animals! believing in what Animals Australia strive to achieve right across the board for neglect & cruelty to animals. It is important for me to know that your dog/s are well socialised and are vaccinated (have a current C5 certificate). I only take small to medium-sized dogs and take two dogs at any one time. There are two quite amazing parks within close proximity to our private home, where the dogs are able to enjoy themselves. You can be sure that I would never take your dog off their lead though.  I do have the extendable-type lead which I use at the park, giving them freedom to explore a bit more !  I usually walk the dogs (unless otherwise stated by the owner) twice daily, weather permitting. I would like you to feel completely at ease when leaving your dog/s with me as I will care for them the same way that I care for my own dog. Our family room overlooks our completely enclosed private back garden which is where we spend time during the day. We have a medium-size doggie door which allows the dog to go outside and return at anytime when needed. The atmosphere in our home is warm and reassuring. After you book your Petsitter through the Holidog website, we arrange an Introduction in the park. This is so that we can meet in a 'natural' setting.  Then, we return to the house where you can see where your dog will sleep, play, eat and rest throughout each day of his/her stay. So be assured that she/he will have a special place to feel safe and loved until you return from your holiday/cruise interstate or overseas. I have an enthusiastic understanding of the canine world and know they all have different personalities, quirks and needs. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have other questions that come to mind.

Lea has always had a passion for animals and has pet sat for friends and professionally. She has owned a total of 5 dogs herself and is at home with most animals but has a great love for canines. Currently she has one dog named Toby who recently lost his life partner a Cockerspaniel. This is also an opportunity for Toby to get to know new friends and spent time with them. She has also volunteered with Native Wildlife warrior where she had helped care for the animals. In the near future She is going to start a course in Animal Studies with the RSPCA. She has a need to help animals in need especially those that are being mistreated in some way, therefore she also has an association with Animals Australia and World Animal Protection. Lea owns a two-story house in Mount Waverley overlooking the Damper Creek Reserve. It is a tranquil area with many species of birds including owls and possums that call it there home. It also is a perfect location for long walks with your pooch. There is every day 24-hr availability and her Husband also helps her take care of the pets so they wont be alone at the House at all. Lea would take would only take one or two dogs at a time since she also has Toby to care for. However if the family has 2 or 3 dogs she would of course board them all. Lea feels very close to animals and has something special to give them. She will never force herself on your animal and will talk to them from a distance before approaching them. After the morning walks she will give them a special massage and brush your dog out. With your permission there will also be fun trips to the Beach and she will also give your pooch a bath prior to pick up. Overall your pooch will be well taken care of in a loving, fun and safe Environment by an hands-on Pet sitter. Holidog recommends Lea! See less

We could not be happier with Lea when she looked after our beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Baxter, over the New Year break. Right from our initial ‘meet & greet’, we felt completely comfortable knowing that he will be in the best of care during his stay. Lea’s communication was spot on & the regular updates put us at ease that he too was enjoying his holiday. We would not hesitate to recommend Lea. See less

Lea's care of Billy was brilliant. we did not have a care in the world about Billy's happiness and safety while we were on our holiday as we knew Billy was in good hands. Lea said that Billy would come back better than when we left him and she was right. He was clean and happy. See less

Lea has been an excellent pet sitter for our beaglier, Cookie. Lea settled Cookie immediately with her soothing voice and calm manner. Her home is an ideal haven for pets with a beautiful garden to go out to, comfy sofas to hang out and a reserve directly opposite to run around. We left our dog in Lea's care for over 3 weeks and had nothing to worry about. Everything went perfectly and our dog re-adjusted to us without any fuss. Thank you so much, Lea See less

Lea is amazing, she and her husband are totally committed to making all their fury visitors feel completely at home. As first time users of this service, we left two fluffy puppies with Lea for over a week and they were so completely relaxed when we returned(I'm not sure they missed us at all?!). Lea is a true pet caring professional, who ensures everybody has a worry free break - including the puppies! I definitely recommend and be extremely grateful to use Lea again! See less

This was the first time I have left our spoodle with a stranger. I was apprehensive about leaving Billy and going away!! Soon all this changed...... From my first discussions with Lea I could tell that she was a caring and knowledgeable dog sitter. After meeting Lea and her 4 legged friend Toby, I was more that comfortable with my choice of her family home for our boy Billy. Her attention to detail was comforting and I knew Billy would be safe, cared for and have lots of fun. Many thanks to Lea and Toby. Billy will be back one day for another stay From Mandie and Billy See less

Lea was a reliable, informative and a very caring sitter for our dog and had a back yard with plenty of room. It was obvious Lea loves dogs and has a very holistic approach.

Lea was great! It's always hard leaving your dog when you go on holidays but Caesar had the best time with his buddy Tobby and his temporary family. Lea had the patience and dedication to teach Caesar how to use the doggy door which he was not familiar with. I'm pretty sure Caesar was actually sad that we had to pick him up. Highly recommended would contact her again without a doubt. Thank you! See less
