About Grace & Rico

Hi I'm Grace!

I live with my partner Rico in Southbank and we have 5 years of experience dog-sitting regularly for my neighbours as well as on apps such as MadPaws.

We love to keep the dogs we care for entertained and healthy so will make sure they get plenty of walks and outside time. We are located beside many dog walking green areas such as the Botanical Gardens, the Tan and the Shrine of Remembrance and Albert Park. We offer 24/7 supervision between the two of us as we can take care of dogs whilst we work from home during the weekdays. We also welcome overnight stays at our apartment.

We would love to have a dog of our own one day but given our families are back in Europe, we are still playing catch-up with travel post covid! We love dogs and have so much joy and fun learning all about the different dogs we have the pleasure of taking care of.

We will keep you updated of how your dog is going with lots of pictures & videos throughout their stay! Happy also to tailor updates to whatever your preference may be :)

Services include:
Dog walking
Dog sitting during the day
Dog boarding overnight at our place

About our services:

We board only one dog at a time.
Dog walks are 1 hour minimum.
We offer 2 dog walks a day if the dog is staying over or is here for a full day date.
We never leave the dogs alone and will ensure one of us is always there with the dog at all times.
We work from home so are able to fit in dog sitting around our work schedules.
We live in a large, well lit 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with 2 balconies.
Both balconies are secured height wise and with concrete and we do not leave the doors open without supervision or if a door is open, one of us will go with the dog if they need to go to the bathroom.
We live as a couple with no children and no pets.
Pets are free to sleep in the living with our bedroom door open or on our bed/ bedroom floor - whichever they are most comfortable !

These are the most beautiful people. Your dog will be in the best care with these 2. Couldn't have asked for better carers. My fur baby came home happy and content with his stay. Couldn't recommend more!
