About Nicholas
Gus (our Kelpie) and I hit the trails on Mt Ainslie every morning to get the day started. If your dog is also playful and likes a run, they are welcome for a mountain holiday with an excitable friend.

We have over 20 years experience with dogs and have owned Australian sheep and cattle dogs, malamutes and German shepherd X. We live close to the mountain and have a large block enclosed by 1.6 - 1.8 meter high fences. There is plenty of yard space and dogs can sleep inside. A spare large kennel is also available for outdoor use if required.

We think it's important for you and your dog to meet with Gus for a play before deciding on a stay, and to check out the lodgings. We also want to hear about what is important for your dog, including their routine, diet and other quirks.

I have a trail running harness that has a secure clip for a second dog. We can walk/run for a short time (usually 45 minutes) or a long time (1 hour +), depending on what your dog may like. Some days we go twice :)

Nick and his family took excellent care of Bumbles providing numerous photo updates during her stay. Their home has plenty of suitable space and facilities for the dogs. The opportunity of a meet & greet beforehand was much appreciated.

Nick, his family, and his pup Gus were such lovely hosts for dog during our recent time away. Upon return our girl was happy and exhausted, having played with new buddy Gus for days on end! Nick communicated consistently with us throughout the stay and we are looking forward to having him care for her again soon.

Thanks Nicholas and family! Communication was great, and they very responsible dog owners. Our pup had a great stay and was worn out at the end of the weekend.

Nicholas and his family were lovely, kind pet hosts, and really made sure that our kelpie would be a good fit with their dog and home environment.
