About Paul

I am 38 years old and a professional firefighter and I have a 6 year old daughter Lily and 4 year old son Lachlan. We have two budgies and two dogs that are 11yo Labrador and a Labradoodle.

My children have been running our pet care service for over year now and are loving it. It has been a great experience teaching them responsibility, money management and care for animals. All the funds generated from the pet care go to my children to teach them how to save for activates and purchase new toys. All pet care services are fully supervised by myself. We have experience looking after cats, dogs, birds, lizards and fish.

I have grown up on a hobby farm looking after lots of different animals from horses to chickens. I have always had dogs (and always will) and walk them religiously every day. As with most dog owners, our dogs are part of our family. I am very excited that my children share the same care and consideration I have for animals and look forward in supporting them caring for your pets while you are away.

We offer dog walking, home visits and dog boarding.

For home boarding the pet must be child safe and friendly with other dogs. Our property is fully fenced at approximately 1.8m on all sides however we have a access gate at 1.1m. If your dog will jump over the 1.1m height please let me know. My dogs are extremely friendly and will get along with all other dogs. During the home stay all dogs will get a 30 minute on leash walk in the reserve we have adjacent to our property. At night we have the ability to board your pets either in kennels outside or inside in our laundry.

Dog walking will be for a 30 minute walk. If it is too cold, wet or hot to walk your dog, 30 minutes will be spent with an alternative form of exercise or entertainment for you dog. Walks will be on leash.

Home visit will include 30 minutes spending time with your pets. Fresh water and feeding will be included in this service and the remainder of time will be spent entertaining you pet. Mail collection and curb side bin services are free if requested.

We would welcome the opportunity to care for your pets as we do our own.

Paul was brilliant! From the initial meet and greet through to sending regular updates of how our animals were going while we were away, we couldn't have been happier with everything. Will definitely be engaging his pet-sitting services again the next time we go away. We would thoroughly recommend him to everyone.

Paul and his family are AMAZING!!!

Paul happily welcomed my 4 month old puppy Rufus into his home on extremely short notice. I am still blown away by the beautiful love and care Rufus received - I was worried he might not want to come back home.

Pauls communication was brilliant and even sent photos of Rufus everyday showing the fun he was having 😊

Paul - thank you so much again for taking Rufus in and loving him like your own!
