About Stuart
Hi, I'm Stuart. I'm 33, originally from Scotland and moved to Canberra in mid-2017. My partner, Danielle, is originally from Canada and has recently moved from Sydney to join me in the nation's capital. To give you an idea, I'm THAT guy who just can't help himself from coming over and saying hello to your cute dog when you're out for a walk or sitting at a cafe, for that I apologise but I just can't help myself!!! Danielle has had to put up with it so much that she's become quite the dog lover herself!

I've wanted a dog of my own for many years now but the circumstances have just never been right. We live in Braddon so we can get to anywhere in town easily, Danielle works in the city and I work near Bungendore. We're only available for Pet Sitting (at the customer's place) at the moment due to our landlady not allowing dogs. I especially love small dogs but we're happy to care for any breed. We have our own transport and don't mind looking after dogs anywhere in Canberra including further out of town. We're both looking forward to meeting you and your four-legged friends!! Thanks very much for checking out our page! :-)

My dogs took to Stuart immediately and he was so accommodating with their needs and my schedule. I will absolutely be booking with Stuart again when I’m away. Loved receiving the updates and photos!

Stu and Danielle were wonderful and we felt that our dogs were well looked after. Would definitely recommend them!

I am the most anxious dog owner in the world so I was super nervous about leaving Scout with a pet sitter after my family couldn’t look after her as planned (I’ve never used a sitter or kennel before). I didn’t need to worry at all - Stuart was absolutely amazing! He was in contact the whole time, sending updates and photos and took Scout on lots of big walks. The photos of Scout losing her mind with excitement when Stuart came back for the second pet sitting stint said it all! Aside from taking excellent care of Scout, Stuart went above and beyond with taking care of the house, including washing all the sheets and towels for us. I can’t say enough how grateful I am for Stuart’s services. From now on we can plan holidays and weekends away without worrying that Scout will be distressed, which gives us so much more freedom than we’ve had in the past nine years. And I’m pretty sure Scout will be heartbroken if she doesn’t get to see Stuart again soon!
