About Ben

I live on a large, very well fenced property in Abbotsford with four other animal-lovers. We had been living with a wonderful staffy named Banjo up until recently, when he moved out with his owner. We would love to have some dogs come to stay with us to fill the doggy shaped void this has created! UPDATE: We now have a friendly kelpie living with us and she would love some company.

I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember and have grown up with/raised dogs from a young age. I have experience with puppies, anxious dogs, aggressive dogs and disobedient dogs, and I'm happy to continue your training/do my utmost to not teach your dog bad habits. I am a musician, and tour for long periods of time (the reason I can't have my own dog), but when I am home, I am very much home and ready to provide care for your dog(s). Our house has large front and back yards which are both well fenced, so there is plenty of room to throw a ball and excercise at home. It is also located near the Yarra Bend park, the perfect place for walks along the river. I am more than happy to do house visits or housesitting to look after any animal, water your garden and collect your mail.

Ben is a very warm and kind dog sitter. My boy Roscoe loved his time at Ben’s house playing with their Kelpie and lounging around in the cosy sunny house. We will be sure to visit Ben again!

Ben was amazing, came over and spent time, walked them and cleaned up after them, would leave my dogs with him or have him come over and look after our dogs at anytime.
