About Stephen

I am a dog loving Irish guy working full time for the NT Government. I am very fortunate to share my home with a rock star golden retriever named Rosie

who thinks life is a party thrown just for her and William,

a beautiful quiet retired racing greyhound.I live alone and work but I am usually home for lunch every day,

I am home every evening and all weekend so my dogs get my undivided attention! We all hang out together constantly and your dog will be a welcome addition to our happy set up.

Rosie and William are

inside dogs and enjoy air con but they also dont mind some outside time in the garden which is fully fenced and very secure.My dogs sleep inside with me so if your dog enjoys hanging out inside and sleeping inside ,my place is definitely going to be their home away from home.

I am an experienced dog sitter as I have

fostered dozens of greyhounds over the past few years but I adopted William as he is such a lovely guy.Rosie the retriever is the life and soul of the party and a well known character at muirhead dog park where she has to meet and greet all dogs and owners!

My dogs are my life and I love involving them in every activity.I want to pet sit as they both adore other

dogs and are at their happiest with some doggy company and I also love a house full of dogs with different personalities.

Your dogs will be treated like royalty in my house. I will include them in everything and William and Rosie will keep them company.

I

can walk your dog on

your walk of choice or go to the dogpark(Willam and Rosie love a few hours at the dog park), whatever makes your dog happiest and when inside,just like my two, your dog will have the run of the place!

I look forward to providing the level of care , comfort and love your best friend deserves.

Look no further... this is the man to look after your dog. Stephen has looked after my mate Tiger twice now. I was worried about leaving him with someone else at first. Tiger follows me everywhere, can get anxious when I’m not around, which can lead to him basically knocking things over etc. Stephen has other dogs and I was worried how they would react to Tiger, who even though he’s old and fragile, will still stand his ground. Anyway, wash those anxieties away because the old fella had the time of his life. Stephens dogs are friendly and Tiger loved hanging out with them. Having other dogs there meant he wasn’t anxious when I wasn’t there or when Stephen went to work. He slept on the sofa, got walks every day, ate well, and generally got treated like a king. Stephen will send you updates every day to let you know how your dog is doing, so you aren’t stressing about it. The first time I dropped him off he was nervous. The second time he was wagging his tail like a puppy and looking forward to his lads holiday. Now he always has a place to go in Darwin, and crucially, he loves going there. If you have one thing to worry about it’s probably that your dog will want to stay there when you go to collect it😆 Thanks Stephen, A+++

Captain had a great time on his weekend stay with Stephen, William & Rosie. So much so, I think he was actually sad to come home! Stephen sent lots of photos which was a great peace of mind to see Captain making himself at home. Would definitely book Captain in again 😃
