About Vanessa
I'm Vanessa and I've loved animals since I was little. Me and my hubby have a small but secure yard and our beautiful local park is only a short walk away, with four ovals for pups to run around - perfect for our Billy, who is a 3yo blue merle border collie. We like to mix it up too by going to other nearby parks and enjoying long walks around the local area. And who doesn't love going to the beach in summer?!

We know how much working dogs need not just exercise but brain stimulation. I work from home some days and take Billy with me to the office on others so your fur baby would be with me most of the time.

We know how hard it can be to find a reliable and caring sitter for these (high maintenance!) gorgeous creatures so if you have a kelpie, border, Aussie shepherd or the like and you'd like to shout out, please do so for a meet-and-greet. Our home is open to toilet-trained and fixed lodgers, and they will be looked after like they're our own. We only take one at a time but if you're lucky enough to have two, we can chat to see if it'll work. Puppies are ok (but must be toilet trained as we don't have a dog door), seniors always welcome.

Servicing suburbs within a 10-kilometre radius, unless of course you'd like to drop off to and pick up from us at home.

Billy and I look forward to hearing from you :)

Bingo LOVED staying with Vanessa. Our boy was so well looked after and obviously loved, we can tell he is missing his long walks and rough housing with his new best buddy Billy! We would highly recommend Vanessa (and Billy-dog) Thanks again!
