About Mathew

From growing up with horses to caring for dogs, I've always lived with animals. My first job was in a pet store, my second as a stablehand, and my third was caring for the health of racehorses. My current lifestyle makes it difficult for me to have pets of my own as I occasionally travel for work, so I would love to have the opportunity to treat your pets as my own.

I aim to study my Cert III of Animals in Captivity with aspirations of becoming a Zoo Keeper, so you can trust that your pets are in knowledgeable, and loving hands as I provide environmental enrichment, two long walks along the creek per day, and complementary obedience training/reinforcement. As a freelance writer, I usually work from home most of the time, so it is nice for me to have a pet who can remind me to take breaks and go for a run now and then.

I offer free obedience training with every interaction

with your dog, and sometimes work with rehabilitating and rehoming dogs, so if you are looking to add to your fur family, feel free to ask :)

I have a large backyard, a small shell pool for summer, the Maribyrnong

River running behind my house, and lots of love to give. All I need are your pets.

Sarah, 2019-10-11

Highly recommend Matt, he was fantastic with our dogs, sent regular updates and we didn't have to worry if they were okay while we were away. We have two big dogs that can be a handful but he seemed to manage then with ease. He has a nice big yard and walked them regularly.

Mat is super friendly and organised and is both caring and skilled in looking after my dog!
