About Tony

I have looked after a range of dogs from chihuahuas to labradors, and have a beautiful, friendly, and very playful female kelpie named Killara.

We visit the local park most mornings where Killara plays with the other dogs and explores the bushland. When we don't go to the park, we usually head to the beach for a swim in summer.

I have not met a dog that Killara does not get along with. Killara loves company, but I'm not ready to commit to a second dog, so pet sitting is the perfect middle ground. I can board two dogs at a time, along with two doggy daycare spots.

I have two teenage children and a three year old who all love dogs. I am retired, so I have plenty of time to spend with your cherished pooch, and am rarely away from home for more than a few hours.

My back yard is fully fenced with secure gates. I do have service providers accessing the property periodically for lawn, garden, and pool maintenance. Most of the photos in my gallery are taken in my back yard, at the local park 300m away, or the beach where I take the dogs walking and swimming.

I generally allow the dogs to sleep inside in their bed on the floor next to my bed if they will settle, otherwise there is a sheltered area in the garage for them to get comfortable. I can also arrange grooming at your own expense if you are going away for a while.

I will need you to provide your own food, bed and leash, and training treats if you would like some obedience training done.

Tony kept in touch while we were overseas and we were confident our dog was in good hands. She was relaxed and happy when we went to pick her up. We will be using Tony again for sure

Tony was fantastic, very easy going and great experience. I feel bad that my dog has to come home after plainly having such an amazing time with Tony. Will definitely be using him again 👍
