About Sonya
We are a family of 4 (with teenagers) who love dogs. We have a secure backyard. Our yard isn't large, but we have grassed areas and we enjoy walking everyday and we love to play ball. We have a kennel and a garden shed for shelter. We would love to welcome puppies to large dogs to holiday with us while you are away. We are happy for your dog to sleep in our garage (attached to the house), backyard (shed or kennel), or internal laundry depending on their size and where you think they will be most at ease. Our house is located within walking distance of Greenway Oval and Cherrybrook Dog Park. We don't currently have any pets of our own and love the concept of lavishing yours with attention & affection when it fits in with our schedule and yours.

We usually take only one dog at a time, however we are happy to take two dogs that know & like each other. There are occasions when two bookings may overlap for a couple of days. If this happens I will consult both owners with details of the other dog to see if either anticipates any problems. We are able to divide our yard if necessary. Additionally, I may get booking requests for two dogs that are unknown to each other for the same period. If they are both small to medium size and it appears that they may be compatible and might enjoy each other's company, I will contact both owners to discuss.

We appreciate that all dogs have their own personalities & behaviours and aren't always predictable. Below is a list of canine characteristics that are compatible with our family:

Likes to be outside
Happy to sleep solo
Responds to basic commands (at least sometimes), eg sit, stay, come
House / toilet trained
Gets along with people and other dogs
Doesn't bark excessively
Not aggressive

If that sounds like your dog please contact me to arrange a meet & greet (usually a 15 minute meeting at a mutually convenient time & location).

Things to bring for your dog's stay:

Food, treats, lead, bedding and any favourite toys

Please ensure your dog is up to date with vaccinations, flea, tick and worm treatments.
