About Courtney
Hi my name is Courtney and I'm 32 years old living in Richmond. I currently work part-time contracting as an off leash dog walker. This is involves walking and socialising up to 5 dogs at a time.

I absolutely love animals, in particular dogs & cats and I would love to be given the opportunity to mind your pet! I have lived in Melbourne for over 13 years and have over this period looked after many different breeds as well as caring for my two furry children, Snaps and Fender. Your pet would be in loved hands and there is no doubt I would treat them as if they were my own.

I offer the following services:

Weekend Sleepovers (Pet hosting in my home):

Your pet is welcome to have sleepovers at my home in Richmond anytime from Wednesday - Sunday. I have a medium sized front and back yard and they would also be free to roam in and out of the house. I have a pugx and a poodle who are residents of the house and would love to socialise with your pup. Unfortunately I am unable to host cats and large dogs.

Cat cuddles & feedings:

I am also available every day to visit your cat (or dog) at your home. During this visit I will feed them, give them fresh water, play with them or give them medication if needed. I have a current police check and this can be provided to you for your peace of mind.

Dog Walking:

I currently work 4 days a week walking large packs of dogs off leash at local parks. I have availability early mornings or afternoons if you require your dog to be walked. At this stage I will only be offering one on one walks on leash but if once your dog becomes familiar with me we can then discuss them becoming apart of a group pack or an off leash walk. The walk usually consists of 45 min - 1 hr periods where we walk or run in surrounding parks and green areas.


I am available to pick up and drop off your dogs. Whether they are staying at my place or need help getting to the vet, airport etc. My car is fitted with dog hammocks, beds and seatbelts to ensure they are safe and secure whilst travelling.

All services can be tailored to your pets needs. I currently service Richmond, Cremorne, East Melbourne, South Yarra, Prahran, Windsor, St Kilda, Elsternwick, Abbotsford, Hawthorn and Kew. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to the opportunity to meet you with your furry friends.

Courtney was an excellent dog sitter! My dog looked right at home when I went to pick her up and didn’t want to leave. Would highly recommend.

Thank you again to Courtney for doing an excellent job of looking after my cat while I was away for two weeks. Poor Courtney had to deal with my cat escaping but she very capably rang all the local vets, pound and friends and managed to retrieve her before I returned. Courtney has proven to be very capable, responsible and caring and I thoroughly recommend her.
