About Berta

Hi! I am an animal lover and before moving to Australia I lived with my 2 cats. I currently live in a house with my partner Vito and our friend Eve, who also love having animals around, cuddling and giving them all the attention.

I'm a veterinarian qualified in Spain currently studying a PhD in Geelong. I am very familiar with cats and dogs, having lived with at least one cat for the past 20 years and my sister's dog for 10y. I am confident in caring for cats/dogs that are elderly, disabled or that may require any type of medication.

I offer PET BOARDING and DAY CARE at our home in Belmont, where dogs will have access to the fenced backyard under supervision during the day. Overnight, we will keep the dogs inside with us unless you prefer otherwise. Cats will be kept only inside for safety reasons. We prefer dogs to be housetrained and they will get at least two 20-30' walks a day (I'm happy to discuss your pet's needs during the meet and greet and adapt to it).

I also offer DOG WALKING around Geelong, as well as HOUSE VISITS at the owner's home which might work better for cats, so that they are not stressed out by being in an unfamiliar environment. Walks of 30min approx. unless we agree differently or the dog has specific needs. And visits will vary between 30-60min depending on what needs to be done.

My work schedule is quite flexible and I can work from home often/when needed. On the weekends we enjoy going for walks along the river and even on the beach, so as long as you're happy with it we are keen to do small trips with your pet for nice walks around Geelong and the Surf Coast Shire.

I'm currently fostering 2 young cats, but as they live in a separate room in the house for socialization purposes there won't be direct contact with your pet (at most they'd be able to smell each other through under the door). Dogs that get very worked up with cat smell/noises might not be a good fit for boarding or daycare.

I only accept ONE booking at a time (unless agreed otherwise), so your pet will have our attention the whole time.

I enjoy taking photos of animals, so if during the stay I get any good one of your pet I will be happy to share them with you (all animal photos from my profile are mine)

Looking forward to meet your furry friends :)


PLEASE, make sure you provide the basics for your dog stays:

  • Bed
  • Food
  • Collar/harness and leash to safely walk your dog (for their safety, make sure your dog can't remove his/her collar while walking on the streets or advise otherwise)
  • Emergency contact number (family/friend/vet) [at least when >2nights stay]
We'd love for you to bring any extras that will help make your dog feel more like home during their stay with us:

  • Toys
  • Treats
  • Food/water bowls
  • etc
*Please note that I require your pets to be microchipped, vaccinated, and up to date with flea and worm treatments as required by the Code of Practice.

Berta is great I cannot fault her service what so ever.

Very easy to deal with and great with our two young dogs who can be a bit of a handful 😆
