Our Services


Every Home Alone pet carer adores animals and enjoys working with them all day, every day. We recognise that each pet is a valued family member so we strive to care for your animals as we do our own. We are fully insured, very reliable and experienced.

We offer a range of pet exercise and pet care services, 365 days of the year.


 

Dog Walking

All dogs require attention, stimulation and lots of fun. So at Home Alone we provide a walking service for busy people's dogs or for dogs whose parents just want them to have fun with other dogs! Home Alone can provide a walk for your dog to suit his or her individual requirements. We will collect your dog from your home, drive in air-conditioned comfort to a dog-friendly park where she or he will romp off-leash for an hour. We then return them home for a well earned rest. We take carefully matched groups of dogs out on each group walk. These groups are arranged so that your dog is taken on a walk with other dogs that complement his or her temperament and energy level. For instance, younger and more energetic dogs are walked together for vigorous exercise and fun. Dogs who are inclined towards gentler exercise and general mooching about can do so with like-minded canine pals. Each dog in our care must be compatible with other dogs and trustworthy off-leash in the park.  Where required, we also provide individual one-one one walks.

We take walks out every day of the year. Walks can be arranged on a regular or casual basis.

 


 

Pet Sitting


Most pets prefer the comfort and security of their own home when their parents are on holiday.

Home Alone's pet sitting service offers an alternative to boarding kennels for those times when you need to be away from home and are unable to take your pet with you.

We strive to maintain your pet's normal routine. We do this by visiting your home once or twice a day, taking your dog for a walk with a small group of other dogs, feeding him/her on our return, feeding your cat, fish etc., refreshing water bowls, combing or brushing pets, and staying with them while they eat the food you have chosen for them.     Monte

If required, we will administer medication, dispose of pet's waste, collect mail, turn lights on and off, put your rubbish out. Plant watering is available for a small additional charge, depending on your garden's size.


 

Getting Started - Dog walking


Before your dog joins us as regular or casual customer, we visit your home to meet you and your pet. We will ask you a series of questions to make sure that your dog is compatible with the type of services we provide and most importantly, to match him or her up with the other dogs she or he will walk with. This also gives you and your pet the chance to meet us so you can be sure that you want to hire us. When we've all agreed to the best type of care, we create a file for you and your pet, sign an agreement, collect any keys required and agree to a time and day/s for walking.
