About Miriam

Hi there! We are Miriam, Pablo & Xana, and together we would love to take care of your furry friend while you are away. We are an active family that loves nature and has the fortune to live in an area surrounded by beautiful dog-friendly parks and walks to keep our also-active dog Xana exercised (tired dog, happy dog, happy house right?! ). Both of us have grown up with dogs of very different nature (Cocker spaniel, German Shepperd, Shih Tzu, Aussie Shepherds...) and have experience with dog training (non professional). We live in a two story house with a medium backyard and 2m fences.

As part of our family, your dog would be inside with access to the backyard at all times. During weekdays we work in the city from 10am to 3pm. Depending on your dog energy levels, we offer a 15/30 min morning walk (or run if we all feel like it!) and a 45/60 min doggy play time at Fairbairn park every day. The later is also available as a DOG-WALKING service everyday with pick-ups and drop-offs within Maribyrnong area. Our laidback weekends revolve around dog walks, cuddles, and play times with all-day availability to take care and be with your furry friend. Xana is very well-socialised and gets along with all dogs. However, in the event of your dog needing some space, we have the option to split them (we also have a patio). We have a doggy-proof car and live close to the Vet in the unlikely case of emergency.

We know first hand how difficult is to leave your best friend in the house of a stranger so if you would like us, we will keep you frequently posted, so you can have a peace of mind during your time away. Our home is open for inspection to ensure that you are satisfied with it. We would love for our dogs to meet before committing to any arrangements to ensure we are able to live together safely for the duration of your pets stay. Please feel free to message us with any further question.

Miriam & Pablo were wonderful carers for my greyhound. They kept in contact regularly and made sure my dog was well cared for with walks, pats, feeds and love. Will happily book them anytime I go away 👌👌👌

Fantastic couple very trustworthy and reliable! They took great care of our 7 month puppy, kept communication high with lots of photos and exercised him well (he slept a lot when we took him home). They also have a beautiful 3 year old dog with a soft friendly nature (kingsley kept searching for her 😍)

Highly recommended and we will certainly use Miriam again! Thank you 🤗
