About Louise

Welcome to RIDGEVIEW RETREAT. A true Doggie Oasis! Fully Fenced Acreage for Safety & Security. PACK WALKS/HIKES ARE INCLUDED IN OUR RATES (weather permitting) We absolutely adore dogs - big dogs, little dogs, all dogs! Little dogs that act like big dogs & big dogs that think they're little dogs .. hee hee. ****** PLEASE NOTE THAT PACK WALKS ARE ALREADY INCLUDED IN OUR RATES ****** My husband & I have over 1.5 acres FULLY FENCED property - 12 mins to Robina, 6 mins to M1. We do daily hikes around the Bonogin Hills & our motto is "a Tired Dog is a HAPPY Dog!" Social interaction & play are also top priorities. We have 3 fully fenced grassed yards (1.6m high with s/steel mesh fencing on bottom), as well as a large undercover alfresco area and a huge pool and entertainment area - so in all 4 separate yards - which can all be connected, or all kept separated. But we advocate the socialisation with both large and small dogs (fully supervised) in our 'open kennel environment. Depending on size, age and fitness we would gladly take your furry baby on our pack walks, and we advocate the use of positive reinforcement for training and managing behaviours. When staying for an Overnight Stay, or Day Boarding, the walks are INCLUDED in the fee. We advocate Cesar Milan training techniques to keep our own pooches & guests, calm and harmonious whilst in our care. We sometimes use Backpacks (in the cooler months only) & always use Slip Leads when we walk all the pooches. I have an RSPCA Dog Minding (Pet Sitting) Certificate, Certificate in Dog Psychology and Behavioural Science, am a member of the PPGA (pet professional guild Australia) as well as a Police Background Check Clearance also. We also offer Day Boarding on MONDAYS to FRIDAYS with fully supervised socialisation and pool playtime too. Pack Walks are included in the Day Boarding rates (weather permitting). Please note that spaces are limited, so book ahead to guarantee your furry baby being spoilt by Ridgeview Retreat and give you complete peace of mind whilst you are away. If you would like your beloved pooch to stay and sleep indoors .. not a problem .. but they MUST be able to either use the doggie door (if small enough), otherwise old enough to know to 'hold it for the night' .. if not, they will sleep under the alfresco or extra large dog house. DAY BOARDING * Drop off time is between 645am - 715am, or after 930am (to avoid the heat on our early morning Pack Walk). * Pick up is STRICTLY by 5pm, otherwise extra charges will apply. OVERNIGHT BOARDERS * Drop off time is after 9:30am * Pick up times for MON-FRI - between 9 -11am or 3-5pm * Pick up times for SAT & SUN between 10 - 11am or 3 - 4pm N O E X C E P T I O N S NO DROP OFFS OR PICK UPS ON PUBLIC HOLIDAYS - NO EXCEPTIONS The current C5 Vaccination Certificate must be presented PRIOR to Booking. .. either sent via email or text through. All pooches must be completely up to date with their Worming, Flea and Tick treatments also. =========================================================== PN : we are unable to take any AMERICAN STAFFYS, ENGLISH STAFFYS or BULL TERRIER mixed who are over 6 months of age, whom haven't stayed with us before. They can be looked at no a Case by Case basis, but must have extremely good Social Skills and have strong and consistent leadership at home. UNDESEXED Males over 12 months of age, unfortunately are unable to be accepted, or if they constantly mark or hump other dogs they are not suitable for our Open Kennel Environment.

Judi And Mike, 2019-08-10

Louise was an amazing sitter and I would highly recommend her. Carlos was well looked after and the regular photos while we were overseas were the highlight of our days.

We had a short stay but Jasper had the most amazing time of fun!! Constant updates from Louise so i felt at every moment Jasper was in the safest hands. They are also very well versed in training dogs and Jasper learnt some better manners of how to socialise well with so many other doggos. Highly recommend.
