About David and Holly

* CAN ONLY DO PICK UP/DROP OFF ON WEEKENDS *

Hey! Our names are Holly and David. We have been living in Petersham together for almost a year and a half! David moved to Australia from the USA after meeting me in mid 2018.

David is currently studying online. Your pup would be in his company for 95% of the day (David is currently committed to letting a puppy out of its crate to go to the toilet - it’s a 10 min walk from our home in Petersham). Your dog would get a lot of attention and constant supervision at all other times. I am a teacher and am out from approximately 8am-4pm. I'd love to play with your dog before/after work! We adore dogs and would allow your pup to relax with us indoors. We also have a small courtyard with high fencing. We would take your dog for one or two walks per day to nearby off-leash Henson Park, or just around our neighbourhood upon your approval. We are happy to exercise your dog according to its needs and your request.

Your dog would be accompanied by Bruno, our almost 3 year old 48kg Mastiff X Wolfhound. Despite his size, he is a gentle giant. He sleeps most of the day and is extremely friendly/gentle towards dogs of all sizes. He is not protective of food or territory. He’s a little excited when first meeting other dogs but settles into his lazy self pretty quickly. We hope your dog will love him and enjoy relaxing with him! Sometimes Bruno likes to play chase or to wrestle, however he is very well socialised with other dogs and will only do so if the other dog initiates and is of appropriate size. Once he has smelt another dog, he will usually go back to minding his own business. It is essential that your dog be friendly with other dogs, especially large ones. We are happy to meet you beforehand to test the waters between your pooch and ours! Bruno needs about 40 mins of exercise per day. We may bring your dog along with him, or may leave Bruno at home depending on how much exercise he has had. As mentioned above, we are happy to exercise your pup as needed/requested.

Your dog will either be in our courtyard or inside in the room pictured, it's up to you! More than happy to have them inside (Bruno is an inside dog) to sleep or to chill. The bedroom is where David studies/chills and where we spend most of our time! Our TV is currently in our bedroom! We do have a two-bedroom house, so there is more space for your dog to roam as we use the space.

We adore dogs and 100% treat them like part of the family. We would love to welcome your baby for the day, or for a longer stay! We can send you photos and updates throughout the day or your trip! You are also welcome to message us with any concerns or instructions.

David has trained canines in the US military. Upon your request, he would be happy to do some basic, reward-driven and fun training with your dog. He is also happy to just enjoy, play and relax with them! David previously owned an Australian Shepherd and has practice with active breeds/training/behavior issues.

We have rescue experiene! Bruno is a rescue who has been very easy to train and is very well-behaved. David's Australian Shepherd was also a rescue, however he had some behaviour issues due to his past (reactive to other dogs, not house-trained when adopted).
