We are a family of four who LOVE animals, especially dogs. We are actively involved in playing & caring for your pet. Our promise to you is that we will care for your pet as our own. This is reflected in our reviews which we encourage you to read. We have a large back yard with two friendly dogs & ample shade. We are home every day so you don’t need to worry that your pet will be without human attention for long periods of time.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Boarding & Day Care - we will play with your dog every day. We thoroughly enjoy playing fetch, tug-o-war & chase. We will feed your pet with the pet food you provide & as instructed by you. We have water bowls inside & outside to keep our furry friends hydrated. Most importantly, we will ensure your pet is always safe, happy & secure. We provide photos to share the experience with you & to ease your mind in knowing your pet is safe & is having a great time.
Textile dog beds are often torn as the dogs get overly excited playing. Therefore please don’t bring your dog’s bed unless you don’t mind for it to be torn. We provide three kennels, a rug & two day beds for dogs to sleep outside.
Other services - walks are no less than 20 minutes, so please don’t hesitate to include a walk in the booking for very active &/or adventurous dogs. Grooming includes a full wash, blow dry & brush. Please don’t hesitate to book grooming if you want your fur child returned to you clean & fresh.
Saturday is our busy family day. We will still spend time with the pets but not to the same extent as other days. Thank you for your understanding. Please note, dogs that mark their territory inside the house will be taken outside for the duration of their stay for hygienic reasons. Thank you for your understanding.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT: unfortunately I’m not a qualified vet so if a pet gets sick they will need to see a vet. Grooming does not include a cut. Please do not expect your dog to be washed & dried free of charge, although we are happy to do so if requested as part of the booking.

If this is your first booking it’s important to arrange a “meet & greet” to ensure pets are compatible with eachother. This is free of charge. Strictly 30 minutes or less. Additionally, for your peace of mind I can provide you with my Police Check certificate. Feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.
Warmest regards, Antonia & family
We are so grateful for what Antonia and her beautiful family has done for us. Her and the family went truely above and beyond what was required of a pet sitter. Without Antonia being an accepting and caring person we wouldn’t of been able to go on our holiday.
Our little Connie had a serious leg injury just days before Antonia was to take care of her. I reached out to Antonia and explained the complications with Connie, our concerns and the extra things she would need to do to care for Connie. Such as giving Connie her pain medication etc...
Without hesitation Antonia was so accommodating and was happy to still take Connie. She cared so lovingly the entire time.
Antonia never took her eye off Connie and sent us updates with heaps of photos everyday. I could see in the photos Connie our little love one was so happy everyday she spent with Antonia. Even when we picked Connie up you could see a close bond between Connie, Antonia and her family.
I would highly recommend Antonia and her family to take care of your most precious little family pets. We will definitely be using her again.
When we dropped Molly off we were greeted by Antonia who was very friendly and relaxed, Molly took a liking to her instantly. Antonia explained she had an appointment in the afternoon but her mother in law was there and Molly seemed to have a great time. I would recommend Antonia's service to anyone.
My experience with animals is that I’ve always owned and cared for them for as long as I can remember.
