About Stuart
Now taking bookings for new clients for boarding from 1 February 2022.

(Note that I’m closed for the remainder of January.)

Very experienced with over twenty years of dog care, and we are very conveniently located near the entrance (exit) to Canberra for ease of drop off and pick up. Alternatively, I now offer pickup service.

I take pride in my reliability... once you have booked, you can rest assured your travel plans won't go astray.

At my place, all guest dogs are treated like family. Someone is home most of the time, and your dogs live inside with me, and sleep in my room or with my kids.... Small dogs might even be allowed to sleep on the bed too!

Lots of space inside and out for your pooches.

We have a large green backyard with lots of trees and a dog built dog race track (true!) for your doggies to have fun and run around. The yard is securely fenced and safe, and we live in a nice quiet area.

Inside we have lots of floor space, rugs, couch space and quiet time. For the hotter summer days we have a nice big ac in the wooden floored lounge room for beating the heat (or a heater in this crazy Canberra weather).

I am experienced with large dogs as well as small, and welcome all size pooches. We have looked after many dogs over the years, and so many of them beat the front door down upon a return visit, now that's paws for thought about how much your pets enjoy their stay. :)

Your pet will often spend a large part of their stay playing, and they get lots of positive stimulation in a safe environment. Alternatively if they prefer a more serene environment, this is catered for as well.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. ----- I've personally had dogs for over twenty years, and have the one boy, Loki, pictured, at the moment He likes canine company. I'm into walking in the bush with the dogs, or taking them to the dog park. Your dog will get a walk of at least 30-90 minutes each day, and I'm close to a bush reserve and dams.

Check also our Instagram: furballs99 for pics of happy customers.


If your dog is an undesexed MALE over 12 months old, it may not be possible for me to board him. Please contact me for details. My other services are still available, of course. Other than that, we're cool :)

Very flexible with times, noting that pickups after 8pm ONLY by negotiation, thanks.
