We understand that when people are unable to travel with their dog or pets, they want to know their pets will not only feel safe, but are sufficiently exercised and happy while they are away.
My husband (Marty) and I look after dogs at our acre property in Deans Marsh, near Lorne and the Great Ocean Road, Victoria. Our service is very different from the usual dog kennel because your dog spends all their time with at least one of us; we host dogs as if they are part of our family pack. They can sleep inside by the fire in the winter, or outside on the cool deck in the summer, if that is what they prefer.
We host no more than three dogs at a time, to ensure each dog gets the attention they need. They are walked twice a day on the beach or in the bush and spend the remainder of the day chilling with us under the fruit trees, chasing the ball in the paddock, running down to the dam for a swim, rounding up the ducks or keeping an eye on the lambs next door.
We can also visit your place within the Surf Coast Shire to walk/feed/service your pets or property as required.
We have our own female Jack Russell, Billie, who is in her senior years but still loves to swim and chase bunnies. Any dog that stays with us must get along well with other dogs.
We can arrange for a free ‘meet and greet’ prior to any booking, to make sure our home is the right fit for your dog.
We understand that all dogs have their own quirks and personalities and we enjoy hearing about these details to make your dog’s stay that much more comfortable.
Feel free to contact us with any particular questions you may have about regular dog walking, hosting, boarding, pet sitting or home visits.
We are happy to email references from past clients.
