About Michelle

*15% discount offered on stays of 7 night or more.
Every booking includes a morning walk down through the wetlands. (5-6km walk)*

My husband and I are outdoors people who love animals. We have a 6yo Ridgeback named Moose. He is a goofball and gentle giant who thinks every thing or everyone is a potential new friend. Moose and I walk 6km every morning and he sleeps inside at night. We take him on hikes and to the beach often, and would be happy to do the same for your furry friend if you like. Outdoor exercise is important for animal health and we will ensure your dog goes for regular walks!

We live on a quiet and safe street with friendly neighbours. We have a large covered patio and a large yard with a high fence so the animals are safe and secure. My husband gets home about 2-3pm and will hang out and play with the dog/s in the afternoon. Ball chasing is the number 1 afternoon game!

We treat all pets as our own when they stay with us. They become part of our family and we send regular pictures and updates throughout the stay. Our goal is to give your pet the best experience and ensure you feel safe and comfortable leaving your family member with us. I have been fostering dogs and offering pet services for over 8 years. I have completed 2 x 10 week dog behaviour courses over that time and am very comfortable in ensuring all of your dogs needs are met and understood.

We can cater to your specific needs (such as a second daily walk/special diet/medication etc). All pets, their families and their needs are unique just like my service. I am known for going out of my way to go above and beyond a basic service and treating each pet like my own.

We do a free Meet and Greet for every new pet. It is important that the dog is comfortable in the new space and it allows for us to talk through all of your pets needs, I can answer any questions you may have and provide you that extra reassurance so you know your pet is staying in a safe and enjoyable environment.

We are very flexible with bookings (such as short notice and drop off and pick up times). We try to best accommodate you and your pet whether that be a 5am drop off on your way to the airport or a 7pm drop off on your way to the Gold Coast! We are very close to the M1 highway which allows for easy pick up and drop off if you are heading North or South.

We would love to make new furry friends and take care of your family member.

Pet Day Care.
As I work in a school, pet day care during the school term is your pet hanging out and relaxing with Moose in our secure yard. Drop off your pet between 5 and 6:45am and pick up in the afternoon/evening.
School holidays I am home during day so can be around for your pet and drop off times can vary.

Any questions please ask😀
