About Stu

At my place, all guest dogs are treated like family. Someone is home much of the time, and your dogs live inside with me, and sleep in my room or with my kids.... Small dogs might even be allowed to sleep on the bed too! I am experienced with large dogs as well as small, and welcome all size pooches. We have looked after many dogs over the years, and so many of them beat the front door down upon a return visit, now that's paws for thought about how much your pets enjoy their stay. :) Your pet will often spend a large part of their stay wrestling or playing, and they get lots of positive stimulation in a safe environment. Alternatively if they prefer a more serene environment, this is catered for as well. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

My calendar is up to date until the end of May 2020, and we look forward to seeing you then. Thanks :)

I've personally had dogs for over twenty years, and have the one boy, Loki, pictured, at the moment He likes canine company. I'm into walking in the bush with the dogs, or taking them to the dog park. Your dog will get a walk of at least 30-90 minutes each day, and I'm close to a bush reserve and dams. Plenty of space inside and out. We have a covered outside deck with two dog couches, plenty of lawn, kennels, toys, run space, as well as dog rugs and floor space inside... The yard is well fenced and secure, and we live in a nice quiet area. Your pooches sleep in our bedrooms, smaller dogs often on the kids' beds! Equally happy to look after big and small dogs. My own dog is great with all size dogs. As I live in the inner north, I would prefer to help out in this area as travel times can get a bit much otherwise... That said, I can be negotiated with :) -------------------------------

If you need day care before 8.30am please discuss this before you make a booking. Generally we can accomodate your needs. If it’s before 8am there may be a small extra charge.

For boarding bookings less than a week, where you require a morning drop off and afternoon / evening pick up, we are of course flexible but we do ask for a day care booking for the first day, as we usually work on a 24 hour basis. Thanks for your understanding :))

Please feel free to ask me anything, always happy to help.

--------------------------------

If your dog is an undesexed MALE over 18 months old, it may not be possible for me to board him. Please contact me for details. My other services are still available, of course. Other than that, we're cool :)

Stu was great from my initial message to picking up Ricky. Nothing was to much of a bother and Ricky was cared for in a family environment. Highly recommend him!

Stu was really flexible with our circumstances and delays due to fires impacting our holidays. Our pup came back tired from having lots of fun with other pooches X
