Service Description
Loving pet family in Elwood. Secure fenced off house in Elwood with lawn. Dogs are inside / outside as they please.
We are the happy owners of an extremely friendly and energetic young border collie who is very people and dog friendly so your dog will have the company of humans and as well as his/her own kind.
Located in Elwood we have an abundance of off leash opportunities, and fun activities - walking distance to the beach along the canal as well as large parklands like Elsternwick Park and Brighton Dog Beach to name a couple. If your dog likes to swim it can do so for as long as it likes or play ball, frisby, chase bubbles or simply do what many dogs love to do, hang out and play with other dogs.
After regularly taking on friends pets to stay / walk / feed / care for I am now doing it on a professional level. I'm not a behavioural scientist and have no 'whispering dog' qualifications however that does not prevent me / our family from providing endless amounts of love, care and responsibility for your beloved when they are away from you and importantly maintain routine and/ or manners as directed by you.
Regular day care is my speciality and throughout the day your dog can expect some beach time, at least 2 walks including off leash time as well as a third outing to the park (depending on your dogs energy levels), rest time (inside or out depending on their hearts desire) and two feeds if required as well as a treat (if allowed) i.e. a brisket bone.
I also offer check ins to your own home and will attend twice a day for feeding, company, play and walk times.
Overnight stays are also offered as well as walking services.
I do take one offs however my preference is for regular clients as this makes for a happy relationship and even more fun times.
Basic Rates are listed however please talk to me to tailor an individual service to suit you and your dog's needs and then we can adjust prices accordingly.

Fiona was great, responsible, loving my cat while we were away and my cat looked happy with no stress when we get back home which made us so happy and relieved. Highly recommended! Best Regards to Fiona

My dog loves going to stay with Fiona & her family, and rarely wants to come home. Her level of care is amazing, as is her daughters. I can go on my weekends away/holidays feeling relaxed knowing that my dog is in safe, loving, responsible hands - and even gets more exercise than when I'm at home! I would definitely recommend Fiona to anyone needing a pet sitter.

We live in close walking proximity to the beach, Elwood canal as well as Elsternwick Park all of which allow for off leash walking. The beach allows dogs off leash from April 1 - Nov 30 and there are two huge areas (St Kilda beach and Brighton Marina) that allow off leash all year round. Elsternwick park is a huge off leash area with numerous ovals and walking tracks. There are also many other off leash parks at close proximity so there... more
