About Angela

I have been called Staffy most my life and bear many of the breed's traits - loyalty, fearlessness, natural fondness for people, affection for my friends, off-duty quietness, trustworthy, stability, disciplined and most importantly house trained! Being surrounded by animals is very satisfying and enjoyable and I/my family truly love the companionship and time spent with each furry friend.

My family has been caring for puppies and dogs of all ages and behaviours for a little while now and experiences include: Australian terrier, beagle, bishon frise, border collies, cavoodles, chihuaha, cocker spaniels, corgi, dachshunds, fox terrier, jack russell, kelpie, cavaliers, labradors, Lhasa apso, malshis, moodles, malteses, miniature schnauzers, papillon, pomeranian, poodle, pugs, shih tzu, smithfield heeler, spoodle, plus many cats, fish, turtles, chickens, birds, mice and guinea pigs.

We live in a one-level air conditioned brick house up off the road with one human sofa and one animal sofa. The grassy backyard approximately 150sqm, is fully fenced (standard 1800mm to 4200mm in some areas) with pool regulated gates, large pergola shaded area in morning and by afternoon naturally shaded and breezy. The backyard also has a two storey cubbyhouse with slide for the adventurous ones. There is a dog pool in the backyard but kept empty if there are little ones visiting.

Your pet/s will receive all the comforts of home. They can play and sleep outside or inside, dig a hole in the garden, dip in the pool, walk around the hilly neighbourhood, go for walk, sit on the couches or rugs (vacuum daily) or socialise with friendly resident border collie Blaze.

All boarding pets must be clean, vaccinated, treated for flea tick and worm and toilet trained. Services and pricing:
