About John
As I am now semi-retired, I take a lot of holidays and owning my own dog is not practical. I have had dogs all my life and miss the company, affection and joy that a dog brings - so hosting a dog is the next best thing. I love the little breeds like Jack Russells, Toy Poodles, Shi Tzus, Chihuahas, Westies etc. I live in a quiet street in central Bendigo, my secure backyard is not large and my door has a small dog flap installed. I only host one owner's dog/s at a time, so your little pooch gets my full undivided attention and can sleep inside wherever they feel most comfortable. I work from home as an artist, designer and publisher and walk every day. To make your little dog feel at home, I will adopt whatever feeding and exercise routines you already have in place and will provide lots of love and cuddles.
During COVID situation I ask owners to please comply with the following safe practices for meet'n'greet, drop off and pick up: Use side entry, not front door. Use hand sanitiser. All bedding, toys, food etc to be brought in bags.
