About Lyra

Are you looking for pet boarding, daycare, house sitting or dog walking services?

Hey it’s Lyra, I’m a

•Full time pet sitter

•4 years of experience (2016)

•Currently located in Farrer Park

These are the locations I cover :

Novena, Newton, Orchard, River Valley, Bugis, Kallang, CBD and Farrer Park.

(Anywhere within these areas on a daily basis)

If you are requesting from outside these areas, I would love to help if possible.

Being a caretaker for three years has given me the confidence in handling all types of pets. I have experience with young playful puppies, senior dogs, handicap dogs with mobility issues, large independent dogs and aggressive or dominant dogs.

I look after a maximum of 3 or 4 dogs at a time (non-peak period).

Pet owners who are requesting for emergency or last minute bookings will be considered.

No last minute cancellation please.

Transportation of pets can be arranged if needed, with an additional cost.

I have helped owners correct their pet’s behavioral issues like mild to moderate separation anxiety and picky eating habits.

As a cat owner, I am equipped with toys and soft blankets. If you own multiple number of cats I will be happy to board them together. My cat is always looking forward to meeting new friends! He is friendly with both cats and dogs.

Cats with chronic kidney disease are welcome to stay with me as I will provide extensive care for them.

I am not able to care for cats who are FIV positive*

All pets can roam freely in the flat.

I have a grass field beside my block where dogs can play fetch or just lie around. I often bring dogs to parks or the beach for play dates or dog cafes to socialize with others! Your dogs can join the pack of dogs who come to my place regularly!

I have experience in caring for many different dog breeds like chihuahuas, poodles, corgis and frenchies. To Larger ones like chow chows, Labradors, huskies and golden retrievers.

I provide 3 walks daily giving them the exercise they need.

*Priority booking goes to existing repeat customers during peak period. (Chinese new year, Christmas etc.).

In my neighborhood :

•24hr Vet is 5 minute drive away.

•Nearest dog cafe is 5 minutes drive away.

•Pet lovers centre is 10 minutes walk away.

•Pet physiotherapy centre 5 minutes drive away.

•Grooming shops are 5 minutes walk away.

•Nearest dog park is 10 minutes drive away.

I bake my own dog treats made with human grade ingredients that are safe and healthy for your dog to enjoy!

After loosing my adopted senior cat to chronic kidney disease, I have learnt the importance of feeding pets human grade quality food to keep them healthy.

If your pet is on a raw or cooked diet I can help prepare their meals!

I do not drive but transportation can be arranged. I use Grab or transportation service from another caretaker.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

•Owners have to take full responsibility if their pet bites or attacks other humans or pets during their stay with me. An unforeseen incident has occurred before. The dog was friendly towards both pets and humans but bit a stranger during his walk. Dogs have a protective instinct and might bite out of the blue.

•Please do not place your aggressive/anxious dog/cat in front of other pets during visitation or hand off without proper introduction. Always keep the leash on during visitation. Other pets are my responsibility too.

•Emergency contact provided has to be in Singapore at the same time the pet stays with me. In any case the owner is not contactable the emergency contact has to be reachable in the event of an accident.

•Dogs with severe separation anxiety (Howling, barking or whining non stop for hours. Accidents in the home when left alone. Destructive behavior) should seek professional corrective help. These behaviors are out of my control to rectify and take a long time to correct. People in my home need their rest and I cannot care for dogs with these extreme behaviors.

Doggy Day Care
Kenneth, 2018-11-02

Lyra has been very responsive and proactive in her care for Katsudon. She walks him a few times a day and even helped us fix him up in a harness. She has been such a great help in taking care of him during the day.
