Lyra & Guest's Pets
Hello there! I am a full time pet care taker for2 years now. With the past years in looking after pets I have gained experience in caring and understanding for many different types of dog and cat breeds. Ranging from the smaller breeds like chihuahuas and Maltese to larger breeds like chow chows and huskies.
What’s not to love about pets! Our dogs and cats are not only our pets but our friends.

Skills and qualificationsI had Brownie since October 2014. He was abandoned below our block and was being mistreated by other residence. His urine was bringing bad smells to the residence. He became a frequent visitor to my home and even took the lift up. Slowly he became more familiar and we decided to keep him. Not Long after we took him in, we discovered he had kidney problems. His kidney was at stage 2-3 of renal disease. After the proper care we provided for him the past 2 years, he battled out 2016 with fighting sprit and passed away peacefully in December. Even though his stay with us was not long, he will always be remembered for his strong perseverance and invaluable affection he gave us.
I am lucky to have met my new cat in July 2017 and have been really happy to see him Interact with many guest pets that have stayed with us. He is friendly with both cats and dogs and always tries to befriend them.
With Brownie, I've learned how to treat a cat with this kidney problem. I know how to administer iv solution and oral medication. Giving pets the best quality of life they can live will not only help prevention of illnesses but most importantly live a happy life!

Hello! I’m Lyra from Singapore and I’m a FULL TIME pet sitter caring for pets for more than two years now. Being a caretaker for this long has given me the confidence and understanding in giving pets a safe home which they can enjoy! I’ve forged bonds with many long term pets in my care, learning all of their different personalities. From meeting them for the first time to when owners have to move to another country.
I look after a maximum of 3 dogs at a time (non-peak period) so it is required for them friendly and on flea and tick treatment. Pet owners who are requesting for emergency/last minute bookings will be entertained. But please no last minute cancellation.
Pick up and drop off time is flexible. In the event you are not able to pick up your pet, I can help return your pet at an additional transportation cost.
I have helped owners correct issues of their pets dogs with mild to moderate separation anxiety or dogs who are picky eaters. I can help with puppy/obedience training, commands and correcting bad behaviors too.
Owners have to take full responsibility if their pet bites or attacks other humans or pets during their stay with me. An unforeseen incident like this has occurred before and the dog was friendly to humans but it occurred due to its protective instinct.
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 responsible.
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 and take a long time to correct. People in my home need their rest and I cannot care for dogs with these extreme behaviors.
I stay in a flat giving pets free roam in my home. I have a big field just next to my block where they get to run or play catch. I enjoy bringing dogs to parks for play dates or dog cafes to socialize.
Baths and clipping of nails are free! I can help with basic grooming of cats too.
Priority booking goes to existing repeat customers during peak period. (Chinese new year, Christmas etc.)

After loosing my old 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.
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. I will care for seniors dogs too.
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 playmates! 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.

My experiences and qualifications.
