About Sue
Hello! We are empty nesters who live at Karalee, near Ipswich. Our home is shared with our two dogs, Ralphy – a cheeky Brussels Griffon and Reggie – a rescued Golden Retriever. Both are a very treasured part of our lives. Both the dogs are very well socialised and have proven they enjoy the company of other dogs. Sadly, we don’t own a cat right now after the passing of our 20 year old Burmese. Alan is retired and is at home most of the time. He is a licensed dog judge and he shows Ralph occasionally. I am semi-retired and work only part time. We have bred litters in the past as well as owned a pet store so combined we have vast experience with dogs. Your pet will be looked after like our own, with free run of the house both inside and out as they please and sleep soundly inside. As you’ll see in the photographs we have a large, grassed backyard with secure fencing. We often like to sit outside on the undercover deck with the dogs. Please feel free to send us a message if you’d like to know more! Sue and Alan. ...

Sue was absolutely wonderful with our boys. I could not recommend a dog sitter more highly than her :) She was extremely accommodating with a last minute request and gave our boys the personal love and affection they are so used to at our own home. 5 stars and is now my go-to for dog sitters!

Thank you for taking such great care of our family dog, Samba. I can tell he has had such a nice time with the friendly company he has enjoyed during his recent stay with you....I am so relieved now, to know that I can go away on holiday or for a weekend and not worry when he is with you. Samba has never stayed with anyone except within our close family. So when it became urgent to find a dog sitter for our loved pooch, over the easter holidays, at the last minute, I was so relieved that I found you. I sensed that Samba quickly warmed to you and your friendly dogs Regie and Ralphie. Right from the start, you had our dogs best interest at heart and genuinely wanted him to be a part of your home life for the time he was in your care. I will happily recommend you to my family and friends for when they need a sitter that has a pet friendly home environment for their family pets to stay
