About Carla

My husband I both adore dogs!

I have always been an animal lover. I have had dogs and all sorts of pets, hamsters, horses, rabbits you name it!

We have 5 year old Border Collie called Milly. I work part time from home and my husband works from home regularly. So your baby would always have company and treated as part of our family.

I am a very active person. I love nothing better than going to the park with Milly and taking her for walks. I will look after your baby as I would mine. They would get lots of cuddles and attention :) You can enjoy your holiday knowing your furbaby is being well cared for while they are having a fun doggie holiday! I will send you pictures and updates.

I have over 30 years of experience with dogs. When I lived in Broome I worked as a vet nurse. I did some basic dog grooming and ran the puppy training classes there also. I'm also a qualified horse riding instructer and did all my exams in animal care and yard management. I have also competed at the highest level in dog agility and gone to lots of obedience classes with my previous dogs and Milly.

Im currently studying Canine Bowen Therapy which is a gentle, yet powerful myofascial technique that works with the muscles, connective tissues and nervous system of the dog to activate healing in the body and give substantial relief from a wide range of specific injuries and health issues. I am very passionate about animals and constantly researchinh to update my knowledge.

My husband & I both love the outdoors and going for lots of walks in our local parks, beach and out in the bush. We have a fully fenced back yard. Milly is very friendly and well used to other dogs.

Please ensure your dog is fully vaccinated and up to date with worming and flea treatments. I don’t except any dogs that dig or have any tendencies to fight with other dogs.

I am happy to do a meet and greet first at my house so you can see where your baby will be staying. Please book once you are happy with everything to ensure you get your dates as they book up quickly.

Any questions don't hesitate to contact me and I hope to look after your fur baby as our own!

Carla, Jarred and Milly :)

Carla was fantastic with our 8 month old Spoodle. She sent regular updates and photos and we could see he was having a great time. Highly recommended. We will definitely book Carla again.
