Dane R.
Service Description
Thanks for reading. My name is Dane and I think after over 10 years in Canberra, I can call myself a local right? I work full time in the public service and own my townhouse in Belconnen. I am happy to be flexible with your requirements.

I was lucky enough to get my own dog when I was 10 years old and we stayed together until I moved out of home and up to Canberra. I rescued a pup from the pound a number of years back and he followed me around Canberra for quite some time. I haven't had a dog for about 18 months or so, mainly because of work commitments. My hours were unpredictable. I have now since changed jobs, and would like to start pooch sitting. I have looked after a number of friends' dogs ranging from French Bulldogs to a Dalmatian to a Husky.

I am happy for pups to be inside during the day and sleep indoor at night. I love running, so happy to take larger dogs for a decent run before or after work. Smaller dogs, I am more than happy to cut back my longer runs and let them dictate how far we go. If social, I would love to take them to the dog park as well.

Dane was awesome! He looked after Scrap like he was his own. It was wonderful knowing while we were away that our fur baby was being well cared for. I would highly recommend!!! And wouldn't hesitate to leave Scrap with him again.

Could not have asked for a better host ! Chief loved his stay with two runs a day he felt right at home. Dane even let him inside which Chief will be asking for all the time now. Dane was pleasant to deal with and very accommodating to our timeframe needs. The funny photos and messages made us feel very comfortable while we were away for the week. Chief would love to come back !
