About Monique

45 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 my eldest son keeps 2 cockatiels as his much-loved companions. Our girls prefer the company of adult dogs with similar play style and energy levels, hence I'm unable to accept bookings for dogs under a year old and strongly encourage meet and greets before stays of more than 2 nights.

Special needs (geriatric, deaf, epileptic, etc) welcome; there may be a small increase in fees depending on the 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 fitted 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 in case you forget something but prefer that you supply your fur-baby's usual dinner bowl, bed, lead, collar, etc.

Monique and her family took care of Gaby on New Year’s Eve, even though the booking was made just a couple of days before. Communication was excellent and Gaby seems to have had a great time. Thank you Monique!!

Although we have not actually made it home yet due to Covid, it is very obvious to me that my babies have been not just well looked after, but loved. the messages, photos and video made my days. could not ask for more. recommend exceptionally highly.
