About Richard

Hi, I'm Richard, my wife Gail and I have always shared a love and passion for dogs and cats and consider it a privilege to take care of your pet's. To us pets are part of the family and we treat them accordingly. Until more recent times we cared for and nursed Lucy our lovable little Lhaso Apso/Maltese terrier who had Cushing's disease syndrome but still lived to the ripe old age of 17 wth lots of TLC. I have completed my Certificate IV in Companion animal studies at Tafe and I have enjoyed volunteering at a Pro Life (No Euthanasia) animal rescue shelter which was highly rewarding.

I am particularly interested in animal behaviour and have had the opportunity to be involved with some very experienecd Vet nurses, trainers, behaviourists as well as some very passionate staff and other volunteers. At home we have small premises with a courtyard and your pet/pets will be housed comfortably with us indoors. Handy to our location are several parks and walks to keep your pet fully exercised and enriched.

We are mature, fit, responsible and reliable and assure you that your pet will receive all the love, care, attention and time he or she deserves. You will be updated regularly by text, phone or email to keep your mind at ease. Please Note that the cut off time for Overnight stays at our premises is 11.00 AM or as negotiated.

Richard & Gail are one of a kind & they looked after our Frenchie’s like they were their own. Excellent communication. Ralph & Peach are already looking forward to their next vacation at Richard & Gail’s place.

We had Richard and Gail look after Teddy recently and we cant thank them enough. Great communication and updates kept us informed during his stay which he was well looked after and the King of the house I would suspect! Would highly recommend
