About Monique

44 year old stay at home mum of 3 teens with time to get back to things I love, such as caring for and training animals.

We believe pets are family and should be hanging out with us, whether we're inside or out, so our guests are assured of a 'second home away from home'.

I am a trusted 'aunty' and holiday home for my fellow instructors' dogs (you can see some of my 'nephews' making themselves at home in my pictures). I am an instructor and active participant in my local positive reinforcement based dog training club, so basic training can be included in your fur-baby's stay for an additional cost. If your pup walks nicely on lead, I'll happily include them in our walks, otherwise they will be given appropriate enrichment, play and lots of attention in the home and yard to ensure they're happy and calm.

We currently have 2 medium desexed labradoodle girls and the cockatiel in my profile picture is my eldest son's much loved companion. Special needs (geriatric, deaf, etc) welcome; there maybe a small increase in fees depending on level of need.

A meet and greet is strongly encouraged before any stay. Stays are limited to a maximum of 2 weeks.

SERVICES:

  • boarding with us -

check in/out times by prior arrangement, maximum of 2 week stay

  • boarding for special needs pets
  • emergency transport - should your pet need emergency treatment, our family wagon is fittes with a cargo barrier and we have crates etc for safe transport to the nearest vet.
  • training - extra charges apply
  • FACILITIES:

    We have a large suburban home on a large block, fully fenced with secure 6ft fences and locked gates. We have spare equipment just incase you forget something, but prefer that you supply your fur-baby's usual dinner bowl, bed, lead, collar, etc.

    Monique is fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and caring towards my German Shepherd. She left me feeling at complete ease, knowing he was in good hands.
