Service Description
I have always had dogs in my life and adore them. Dogs become such an important family member and I provide confident loving care. I walk and play with dogs giving them the exercise and socialisation they need to be healthy, fit and happy.

I tailor the outing and exercise to your dogs’ requirements. Twice a week I do a big walk from Zetland to and around Centennial Park including dog play. When it is warm, we go to the beach.

Experienced, insured, very competitive rates. I am mature and reliable – I will not let you or your dog down.

Spaces available for day care and overnight stays (I only have one dog at a time, providing very attentive care).

Review And Testimonials
Danny S.
I recently got a puppy and within a week of having Sam I had to go away for a week for work. Very Special Puppy was recommended to me by a local. I did not have much time to find someone, and I was nervous about leaving my new puppy with anyone, but I am so happy that I trusted Vee. Sam was so well looked after and Vee sent me updates everyday with photos so that I felt at ease. Vee went above and beyond my expectations and I highly recommend her.

Vee is amazing with my dog Max. She gives him as much love and attention as I do. Everyday Max is so excited about seeing Vee and Summer, he literally runs to the park (but he walks very slowly back home at the end of the day!). Even with Max getting older and becoming more demanding nothing is ever too much trouble. Max fell in love with Vee’s dog Summer and they have become best mates. I recently moved away from the area but continue to go back just so that Max can spend time with his best buddy and second mum. I highly recommend Very Special Puppy pet care. Bec, Sydney, 2017

Vee has been walking my dog Charlie for over a year. In this time his behavioral improvements are outstanding and his general demeanor are that of a happy and healthy puppy. Charlie always looks forward to his walks with Vee; he is well exercised and relaxed when he gets home. Vee also looks after Charlie when I go away on holidays – it’s Charlie's second home. Vee’s dog Summer is also very helpful in teaching Charlie good social skills and is extremely patient with young dogs such as mine. They have become great mates. I highly recommend the Very Special Puppy pet care service to anyone looking for a trustworthy and caring friend for your dog. The service is so good I am reluctant to move out of the area!

I have had dogs all of my life and I adore them. I have a four-year-old dog Summer and over the past few years have been dog walking and pet sitting for locals.
