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.

***************************************************************************************

ADDED SERVICES: (Please check our pricing schedule and note that I hold a current police check certificate)

*** We also come to your home if required and offer once or twice daily visits to check on your pets, give them all the essential's such as water, food, love, exercise and also check on your premises, collect mail, put out garbage, water plants etc.....

***Overnight stays at your premises can be arranged as required. Your pet stays at home in his own familiar space and enjoys the luxuries of home under our supervision. (Walks included)...

****Please Note the cut off time for care on an overnight stay is 11 AM the following day...A $20 daycare fee will apply for any additional time up to 8pm latest.

********Rates for overnight stays cover one pet.....Aditional $15.00 for a second pet and $10.00 therafter for each additional pet.*********

***Dog walking services (40 minutes) to keep your pooch fit, healthy and enriched. I look forward to being of service. Please contact me if you have any further questions

I would highly recommend Richard and Gail. They looked after our two cats while we were away. Richard was super attentive and spent extra time with them to make sure they were comfortable because our cats are quite timid and shy at first. Our cats warmed to him and Gail quickly, which is a testament to how patient and attentive they are. We got daily updates and pictures as well. Will definitely be asking Richard to take care of our cats again!

Richard is a fantastic carer, my cat (Kevin) was left with him for 2 weeks and I returned to find a happy and healthy cat. Richard also took great photos of Kevin every day, so I felt reassured that he was safe and could see he was having fun.
