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.

Our dog is a bit of a handful (lots of energy, not enough manners) and Dane did a great job caring for her during her 6 week stay. The updates he sent were great and she seemed to be really happy during the stay and when we picked her up. Would definitely recommend Dane to anyone looking for a good and caring dogsitter. Thanks Dane!

Our groodle, Barb had a fantastic stay with Dane. He took her for lots of walks and sent us regular updates on how she was getting on. Dane made the whole process easy and was always super helpful and quick to respond. Thanks a million, can recommend 100%.
