No Obligation - Free Consultation - Today!

We offer a free, no obligation visit to your home. During our visit we will discuss your pet’s specific needs with you in detail, and answer any questions you may have. Furthermore, we will compile a profile for your pet and also provide information about our terms and conditions.

We are a police checked business with a $10M public liability insurance.

 

Dog Walking

This service is ideal for dogs who are left alone during your absence when you are busy with other commitments or having a well deserved holiday.

First of all, this is great for socializing your dog and meeting up with their friends on a casual or a regular basis. Loneliness, boredom, and inactivity can contribute to behavioral problems eg. barking and digging. Also, benefits such as physical and mental stimulation and companionship can greatly reduce or eliminate this.

Above all, as animal lovers, we care about your dog and everything your dog needs including treats, fresh water, lots of love and hugs!

Exclusive One on One Dog Walks

It can vary in duration from 1/2 hour to 1 hour.

  • Exclusive walking – This is an individual dog walking session, at a pace suited to your dog’s needs. Exclusive dog walks are wonderful for younger dogs that are still more interested in playing than walking in a small group, and elderly dogs that need to take it nice and slow.
  • Companionship  – For dogs that love the individual care and company of humans.
  • Leads On/Off – A dog will only be let off lead if its recall is great with its owner. Once we feel confident, have bonded with your dog and have an approval in writing, we will be able to do so. We use Positive Reinforcement methods with the dogs in our care.

Dog Minding (Staying in our home)

Our home is a fabulous alternative to boarding kennels or for times when you need to be away from your best friend. Our service is based on a 24 hrs cycle with a grace period of 2 hrs. We offer short or long term stays. Your dog will enjoy a holiday of their own with lots of love, attention, adventurous walks and will be treated as a family member.

The health and safety of all animals is something we are very passionate about. Our aim is to provide the most hygienic environment for your dog during the stay. Our requirement is for all dogs to be fully vaccinated (C5), house trained, wormed and flea treated before they come into our home. This needs to be determined and in place prior to your free consultation. We also require you to disclose any information about health and behavioral issues.

Dietary requirements are very individual to each dog’s needs. We strongly recommend that you continue with their daily food routine / requirements.

The benefits of doing so are that dogs with any issues such as food allergies (to liver or beef etc.), or mild to very severe cases of pancreatitis, or a sudden change in their diet causing diarrhea etc., can be avoided. If your dog’s food runs out during their stay here, we can just obtain more of your preferred brand and add this to the final tab.
