My name is Lisa,
I'm 46 and Irish. I work part time. I used to work as an education officer and Fostering assistant for the Dublin SPCA so I have a lot of knowledge of our canine friends and family.
I love dogs and have had pets since I was a child. I lost my previous dog at the grand old age of 12. . I now have a Labrador 9 years old now.
Here at Gudog is a happy place where you can find genuine people like myself, who just want to look after your pet while you have a breakaway or holiday or even just that one night away.
It benefits us both, you can go away knowing I will treat your pet just like he or she was my own, I will walk them at least 2 times a day, and will follow your instructions as he/she is your dog and not mine. He/she will have lots of playtime as I am one of those people who gets down and dirty on the floor to play with dogs. I am the kind of person who stops you when you’re out walking with your pet just to give them a little rub.
I live in a bungalow in the Dublin 16 area so I have plenty of walks to choose from Marley Park, Pearse Park, to St. Endas GAA grounds and my favourite Cruagh/Pine forest and the Hell fire club. I also have a lovely open area around the house so before we go to bed we can have 10 mins fresh air before bedtime. There is plenty to do when your pet comes to stay with me.
I am happy to take most dogs once they cannot get through the bars of my gates. (if your pooch is a tea cup doggy then it's not the right place, sorry).
I have a secure front and back garden, and I keep the dogs indoors all the time except those hot sunny days then all doors and windows are wide open. I have fresh blankets, spare collars and leashes just in case you get caught short so there is never any worry about the small stuff.
I will post a picture everyday to your what's app account so you can see your pets on their holiday while you are away on yours. If you don't have all these new modern technologies, don’t worry I will send a daily text and keep you informed on how your poochy is doing.
I have private references from past guests available. I can email them to you privately or show you personally at a meet and greet.
My own dogs name is Faith, she is playful but very gentle and has got on well with past guests.
I do a meet and greet with all newcomers as this is important to know if they will get on. This usually consists of a cuppa and chat while the dogs are making friends. And I get to check your dog's vaccination certs which is important too.
I think that's it for now, If you have any questions I am here to answer them. Look forward to minding your babies just like they were my own.
Thank you for looking me up.
