About Jacob

G'day, my name is Jacob and I have been looking after pets, mainly larger dogs for the best part of 20 years. Growing up in QLD, I had a Border Collie named 'Charlie' and I now live with a fantastic and lovable black German Shepherd named 'Jethro' who loves other dogs and is very sociable. 

I am married and currently live in Somerville with a nice sized backyard where your pets can play and burn some energy. We usually have our dogs sleep inside for comfort and security but if your pet rather the outdoors, we have a kennel as well that can be accommodated for. We walk Jethro daily and let him off-leash at our local park where he runs around and enjoys chasing his ball. We are happy to accommodate for small and big dogs alike as we have plenty of experience with both.

I am a hard-working, dedicated person who is currently back studying full time as I am preparing to change careers. I love animals and would love the opportunity to assist looking after your pet as I understand that sometimes it is the only option. I believe strongly in meeting your pet beforehand if able to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible with us caring for your furry loved ones.

I am happy to provide a 'Criminal Check' on request for your peace of mind and if there is absolutely anything that your pet needs, please let me know and I am only happy to assist!
