I offer "free range care" meaning full run of house care. I have only one dog now, a kelpie x whippet 3yo girl.
I have a 15 acre property 30 mins from Melb & a small unit in Altona North.
My theory is that if the family is having a holiday, so should your pooch be treated as they are on holiday too.
Run with friends, swim, play activites, snoozing & getting dirty.
Minimum stay is 1 day.
pick up & drop off available.
Christmas & public holiday bookings.****
I have a lot of experience working in shelters and with foster groups both in Victoria & Queensland.
I have volunteered in dog rescue via fostering for over 20 years.
I also hold a dog trainers certificate which I gained for the purpose of working with the rescue dogs. I also hold a certificate in identifying animal behaviour which assists greatly when dealing with the various canine personalities!
I have completed two
canine first aid courses.
I am retired so I am available to be with your dog all day, I do not need to go to work. However, that doesn't mean I'm old...:) I'm healthy, fit and nimble.

Karen is an absolute gem. Karen looked after our 2 year old Lab for 2 weeks while we were overseas. He had a wonderful time mostly on the farm, enjoyed playing with the other dogs, swimming in the dam and relaxing in front of the fire. We would recommend her to anyone wanting their fur babies well looked after.
The whole experience with Karen was fabulous from start to finish.
Our usual dog sitters were away and unable to help, so I needed to leave our 11-year-old big dog with someone who he would trust and who could confidently handle him.
Her communication was great from the start, she was super helpful, and had no issues in giving meds to Basil when he had a last minute mishap.
She sent us photos and updates, and he looked like he had so much fun and was well looked after.
I would highly recommend her to any pet owner.
