Professional Petsitter

Hi - my name is Paul Harris, the Lonely Pets Club Franchisee for Bayside.

Together with my wife Lili we are looking forward to meeting lots of pet owners and taking care of all your precious pets and walking your dogs.

We have lived in Bayside since 2005 and I used to work as a Police Officer in the Bayside area.

I have had pets all my life, dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs, gold fish and birds.

I know that time away from your pets can be a stressful and a worrying time, for I worry every time I have to leave my beautiful German Shepherd at home when I go away, but I promise you, that I will ensure everything that can be done to make your pets feel loved, happy and comfortable will be done, that is my guarantee to you.

My dream job for a long time has been to work with animals and give them all the love and care they need and deserve, for they are totally reliant on us humans for all their needs. I get great satisfaction whenever I can add some quality to any animal's life.

Lili, I and our team of dedicated, reliable, honest and animal loving carers, will always be available to cater for all of your pets' needs. So you can relax and have total confidence that when you're at work or on holidays, your precious pets are getting the very best of care, love and attention.

All my bookings come through our Lonely Pets Club support office.

Paul is a wonderful. He has looked after Flint our dog very well on many occasions. He often sends us a pic and comments about Flint whilst we are away. I have recommended Lonely Pets Club to many people and have used the service for many years. Ray has also looked after Flint. both Paul and Ray do a wonderful job.

Paul has been looking after my cat for quite a number of years now whenever I go on holidays. I always come home to a house that is secure and a very happy cat. Would highy recommend this service.

Paul from Lonely Pets has been looking after my dogs for a number of years and I trust him entirely to do the right thing. I book a visit for my (now solo) dog each day I'm working so her day is broken up and she gets some company and each day her water bowl is filled, she gets a treat, a walk and some playtime. She receives one on one attention, not a group playtime, all for a very reasonable cost. I know Paul was very fond of my old dog too and he gave me some photos he took of him during his visits, once he'd passed away.. Paul is totally reliable, honest and caring

Lonely Pets Club have been looking after our 2 feline family members for many years. We have never had the slightest issue with the service they provide. We have the utmost confidence in our carer Paul. We always return home to happy and well cared for pets. Paul sends us messages to reassure us the cats are fine, which means we an enjoy our time away without having to worry if they are ok. I've recommended LPC to many people and will continue to do so. It's very good value for money, but you can't put a price on being able to trust someone to look after beloved pets.

I have been using Lonely Pets since I moved to Melbourne 8 years ago - they are fantastic. Paul is great - always responds to my messages - even turned off my heating for me when I left it on after one early morning airport run. So reassuring to have such reliable care for my pets

Very professional reliable service with good administrative backing. First meeting with Paul is excellent when he meets your pets and covers in detail your and your pets' needs whilst you are away. He keeps in touch by text and the occasional photo to reassure you that all is well. I am very happy to recommend him to you.

Lily always meets requirements with my cats and gives me updates to ensure I know that they're ok. Even though my situation has changed several times she always keeps up to date with new specifics. She is friendly and professional. I will continue to use her in the future :)

From the first phone call, I had confidence in this organisation. They were helpful in guiding me as to the most economic way for me to assess the regularity of visits to my cats while I was away- 6 weeks in all. I was impressed with the Carer's professionalism and obvious competence. I had no concerns at all in leaving my pets, or access to my home in his care. On my return, the cats appearred happy and healthy and I had a nice note telling me that they were a pleasure to mind
Carole K,

I received a couple of photos of my cats and they looked happy and that's the main thing.

Hi there! We had a carer called Paul who was wonderful and trustworthy. Unfortunately he was unable to provide the highest form of the service over Easter as was injured (and completely fine with us - we did discuss it and I said all fine!). I was a tiny bit disappointed in that I had to approach him for feedback regarding how the pups were - I think that a part of your service would really hold you in great stead is a text or even a picture text after each visit just to let your clients know that all is ok. Overall, a fantastic service and a lovely man and we will not hesitate to call you next time and will spread the good word! Kind regards Erica
Erica B,

Paul has made a lot of effort to make my cat comfortable and happy, such as giving her favourite food (tuna) as a special treat. She is a shy cat but with Paul, she relaxed with him and became friendly. On my return home, she was happy, relaxed and everything was clean and orderly (post and bins had been takken card of as well).

It is very important to feel confident that you are leaving your home and pets in safe, reliable hands and we have that confoicence in Paul. It is also comforting to receive updates that all is well while you're away, and over Christmas we got one or two more updates from Paul than expected, which always brings a smile to one's face.
Tim L,

This was a second booking so didn't see Paul this time so unable to rate some things. Feedback from last booking was acted on and communication much better! I felt much less worried about them seeing a photo text through and a message..just a little thing but makes a huge difference..thank you!!

Paul was great and took great care of jack and kit. He sent through a few photos of jack on his walks. I could tell jack was happy. It really puts your mind at ease when you're leaving your pets in some one else's care.

I was very happy with the care Sue provided for my 2 cats while I was away. It was the first time I had left them for such a long time by themselves.

I will not hesitate to use your service the next time I go on holidays & will reccomend your service to my friends. Thanks again. Steve.

I could tell Paul loves animals when we met and he was great with lola our dog. the only comment i have i would have preferred a bit more contact from him just to let us know things were going well. I had to text him the first night to check all was well..I was kind of expecting a text at least on the first and last visit to let us know how they were going. I knew he had obviously been every day because we had a friend housesitting so maybe thats why he didnt think it was necessary? It still would have been nice to know as our animals are a part of our family and we hate leaving them!
Vanessa D,

Paul has looked after Max and Mo several times and I have been very impressed with the quality of his care, especially as my cats are seniors. He took great trouble earlier this year when one of the cats was unwell. I thus know my cats are in very good haands when I am away.

Fantastic! Paul knew what he was doing, and seemed very efficient, practical and competent. I felt very confident leaving Louis in his care. I loved receiving the texts letting me know that all was progressing well. When I returned Louis was happy, well, and had obviously received the very best of attention. Paul called round, and from the greeting he got from Louis I know he obviously took time with him and did everything he could to make Louis feel haappy and content.
Judy M,

Paul was fabulous. Very responsible & contacted me overseas - only when he needed to, due to concerns about my pet's welfare (my cat had gone missing, but was just hiding from Paul!). Anyway, he did everything I asked and i recommend him to anyone in the bayside area who owns fussy scaredy cats who don't like people very much!

Paul was a delight to deal with and the animals were well cared for. I felt confident leaving them both in his care and he sent us some lovely photos to show how happy they were. Next time we go away I will definitely be using your service again and have already recommended iit to many people.
Kirstie B,

Paul not only took care and gave me feedback regularly on the cat at home but also took the time to call the vet clinic for me to inquire about my second cat who was there recovering from surgery whilst we were away. I thought this was great service and it allowed me to relax whilst on hoolidays. Thank you Paul.

I was nervous about leaving Alley home for the first time instead of taking him to a cattery but I won't be again! Paul was great, he sent me a text to let me know Alley was doing well and sent me pics a couple of days later. Nice to arrive home to a happy, relaxed, well fed cat without having the stress and hassle of car trip to/from the cattery to pick him up which usually leaves me wondering whether going away for a holiday was worth the hassle at all! Thanks Paul and look forward to having you look after my babby again anytime :)

On meeting Paul we immediately felt very comfortable leaving our pet with him, especially as this was the first time we had used this type of service. All prearranged walks were completed and our dog was very happy and healthy on our return. Paul also took the extra time to check up and converse daily with my aged mother who was house minding at the time. Additionally, Paul updated us on ours dog's condition via SMS & MMS which was both unexpected and extremely welcomed. I would not hesitate in using Paul again, or recommending him to our friends and colleagues. There was no doubt that we received exceptional value for moneey, thank you Paul.

We liked that Paul turned on the air conditioning for Pershephone when it was really hot and advised us about it. Also it wasn't a problem for Paul to water the maple tree when we asked him to as the weather was really hott when we were away.
