About Charles

I'm a passionate dog owner and sitter! Proud dad of a Golden Retriever - Harry - who is currently making his way back to Australia from the UK as we were based overseas! But before I tell you more about myself, let me tell you about my services!

My partner and I run a cafe together, Monday to Friday, from 6 am to 1pm, so we have plenty of time to care for your fur-families. (Only 2 dogs max at one time)

Dog Walking:

All dog walking includes 1 hour of actual walk time! Sometimes (with owners permission) I will take the dog in the car to a park, the beach or for a hike, but travel time is not charged! And I ensure a full hour of excercise.

Doggy Daycare:

Every doggy looked after by me at Daycare gets my full attention for a full 8 hours! We have maximum two dogs at a time and they will be with me inside and outside the whole time. We have a fully fenced backyard for exercise and each daycare day will include one hour of walking! :) We may even take them out for a puppychino if they are easy to handle puppers! We will bring them out with us and in the event that we are unable to, we would not leave them at home for more than 60 minutes.

Dog Boarding:

Every puppy who is staying with us for dog sitting gets 24 hours of constant attention for that period. Where we go, your puppy goes! Plenty of time for backyard fun, 2 x 1 hour walks each day and drives for adventures. No dog will be limited to a kennel or crate and all puppies will be welcome to sleep in fully closed back area of our home long with their blankies or they can chill on the sofa. In the event where we are unable to bring them with us, they won't be left alone for more than 2 hours.

House Sitting:

Same as dog sitting, but at your house! We will aim to spend at least 50% of the 24 hour period actually in your home. But will ensure that all meals times are on time, we will include 2 x 1 hour walks and are happy to stay over should there be any particular needs, just ask!

More about me!

My partner and I were the organizers of a doggy play date in our previous city which brought together all breeds of dogs together to play!

I pride myself on being a flexible and loving dog-sitter. This is currently my full time focus so I have the whole day to focus on your fury friend!

I'm comfortable with all sizes and types of dogs and love chilling at home giving cuddles or for the more energetic dogs going on hikes or runs.

We have a pet friendly car and are happy to do pick ups or day trips to give your doggy the perfect day out!

The rates I have provided are up to date & I'm flexible to the needs of each and every dog (and owner!) so don't hesitate to reach out.

I take this role very seriously, as a pet owner who loves our dog as part of the family we understand the stress of handing your dog over to a total stranger so I enjoy taking the time for you and your pet to get to know me and to accommodate any special requests. I'm comfortable handling puppies right through to older dogs and feel confident in our ability to recognize the needs of each dog as they adapt to being away from their humans.

Reach out if you have any questions! We cover anywhere in Townsville and are happy to do pick ups and drop offs as mentioned above! Looking forward to speaking soon!

Greer, 2021-06-01

Charles is an amazing dog sitter! I felt so comfortable leaving my large mixed breed dog with him. Charles sent tonnes of photos and kept me updated on everything they were doing. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Thank you again Charles!
