About Richard
Hi I'm Richard, my wife Gail and I have always shared a love and passion for dogs and cats and consider it a privilege to take care of your pet's. To us pets are part of the family and we treat them accordingly. Until recently we cared for and nursed Lucy our lovable little Lhaso Apso/Maltese terrier who had Cushing's disease syndrome but still lived to the ripe old age of 17 with lots of TLC.

Currently I am completing my Certificate IV in Companion animal studies at Tafe and I also enjoy volunteering at a Pro Life (No Euthanasia) animal rescue shelter which I find highly rewarding. I am particularly interested in animal behaviour and have the opportunity to be involved with some very experienecd Vet nurses, trainers, behaviourists as well as some very passionate staff and other volunteers.

We have small premises with a courtyard and your pet/pets will be housed comfortably with us indoors. Handy to our location are several parks and walks to keep your pet fully exercised and enriched.

We are mature, fit, responsible and reliable and assure you that your pet will receive all the love, care, attention and time he or she deserves. You will be updated regularly by text, phone or email to keep your mind at ease.


ADDED SERVICES: (Please check our pricing schedule and note that I hold a current police check certificate)

*** We also come to your home if required and offer once or twice daily visits to check on your pets, give them all the essential's such as water, food, love, exercise and also check on your premises, collect mail, put out garbage, water plants etc.

***Overnight stays at your premises can be arranged as required. Your pet stays at home in his own familiar space and enjoys the luxuries of home under our supervision. (Walks included)

***Dog walking services (40 minutes) to keep your pooch fit, healthy and enriched.

I look forward to being of service. Please contact me if you have any further questions. Ph 0402 660767.

Richard and Gail were just amazing with Coco - they gave her lots of love, plenty of walks, and we got regular updates via Whatsapp. I would recommend them to anyone - thanks so much, guys!

As always Gail did a fantastic job looking after Winston. He was lovely and calm when we came home. Hilarious updates on their time together while we were away.
