Service Description
We are an active family of five in Grovedale and for the past few years have been foster carers with the Border Force Detector Dog program (DDP). Whilst we don't have any permanent animals of our own (yet) due to our our involvement with the DDP, we are often the first people our friends call when they are going away and need a welcoming and comfortable home environment for their fur-baby. We love pet sitting and have opened our home many times. It allows our kids to experience life with different dogs and keeps us fit with daily (often twice daily) walks. We have helped care for several puppies from nine weeks of age through to older, more senior dogs. We have provided medication where required, adhered to special diets (who doesn't love organic chicken with boiled rice!), brushed, washed and walked and most importantly, cared and loved these animals as if they are our own. There's no bias in our home as there might be if we had our own dog, your best friend is treated just like our best friend.

Work status: I work part-time (3 days) and my husband works fulltime.
Lifestyle: our weekends are spent walking the Barwon river, kicking the footy at Deakin uni and backyard cricket
Kids: Three boys, aged 13, 11 and 4.5 yrs.

In the event of an emergency, there are two vet clinics located close by: Torquay Road and South Valley Road.

Fantastic! Mordy was one very happy and tired pup after the weekend. He received plenty of exercise and Nerilee provided updates too. Gave us great peace of mind knowing he would be so well looked after while we were away :-)

This is one amazing family. They have strong values that shine through from their extremely well mannered children to the love and care they show each other and the animals in their care. Immediately after meeting them, we had confidence we had made the right choice. The updates were beautiful and provided comfort to us. In fact I think he is a little lost tonight, going from so much attention to just us. I would not hesitate to not only recommend Nerilee to others, but will book again without a second thought. The family allowed him to treat their home as his own and I did not expect that but I was so grateful. This experience (our first with this type of arrangement), was so much nicer than dropping them off, knowing they will be in a cage for 4 days without the creature comforts of home. Thank you Nerilee to you and your wonderful family. You put us at ease knowing Cooper was in a great space, being treated and cared for so well
