About Vanessa

Looking for pet sitters that understand greyhounds? As owners of two greys my husband and I provide a safe and caring holiday home exclusively for greyhound guests. We understand greys are special - a very different breed with quirky attributes - and the canine world's best kept secret! We offer our commitment to provide your grey with love and care in a greyhound-friendly home - yes, we have a ramp! Please Note: we specialise in GREYHOUND pet-sitting only.

GOSH! Greyhound Only Special Holidays! give peace of mind by providing:

- Two calm, caring and responsible pet-sitters to love and monitor your greyhound (we are at-home-humans working from home and retired).

- Two quiet and mature resident greys to help your greyhound adjust quickly.

- A spacious, relaxing and air-conditioned home.

- 6+ years' experience owning our own retired greyhounds.

- 8+ years' experience minding other people's retired greyhounds.

- A 6 foot (1.8m) fully fenced backyard.

- Two sets of entry gates on both sides of property.

- A ramp for easy access from the back deck into the garden.

- Inside and outside dog-friendly sofas, for the most regal of couch potatoes.

- Two walks per day, weather pending, at bayside locations.

- Ability to give medication (e.g. tablets, eye drops).

- Spare coats, beds, blankets, muzzles, leads and dog bowls if needed.

- Indoor space for (those who wish to) BYO crates.

- A choice of dog beds including sleeping at night with 'the whole pack'.

Thoroughly recommend Vanessa and Andy to care for your greyhound. We were very anxious in leaving Charlie Boy, but with lots of photos and communication we were able to rest easy. Thank you to both of them.

This is our 4th time bringing our hounds Bones and Pebbles to stay with Vanessa & Andy and their hounds Jett & Martini. Each and every time they have spoiled our babies with daily walks/car rides/picnics/sniffathons. Everyday they would provide ample updates with photos of our hounds exploring the bayside.

Vanessa & Andy have a wealth of experience looking after GHs and are constantly looking to improve their knowledge.

Vanessa & Andy are simply superb and there is no doubt Bones and Pebbles will continue to visit them.
