About Mike
Hi, I'm Mike, thanks for checking out my profile! My wife, Rachel, and I would be glad to provide your pet with a happy home while you're away and will treat your pet like a member of our family.

We are working professionals during the week and will not be home during the day. Occasionally Rachel may work from home and on those days we provide Day Care. If we do not show up on the site for the day you require, then we are unavailable for Day Care on that day. Of course, we will walk your pups in the morning and at night and will be with them all night and weekend to give them lots of love and attention.

From an early age I had pets in the home, they have always been a big part of my life. I have a great connection with dogs and enjoy the companionship that is developed, it's all about the energy they give you and what you give back. I'm an attentive minder and look forward to taking care of your extended family.

We live in a two bedroom apartment in Waterloo and are conveniently located next to some parks including Wateloo Oval.

Whether your pet is highly active or is just looking for some companionship, we can cater to their needs.

While you are away we'll provide you with photos and updates as we know it can be nerve wracking being away from your furbaby.

Please feel free to text me anytime - I'm very responsive!

Happy to wash your pup free of charge if you book a week's stay and dog walking is always included if you book Day Care or Hosting.


PLEASE NOTE: If your pet requires 24/7 care during the week (example: cannot be left alone due to anxiety) we are unable to provide this service during weekdays, but can accommodate your pet during the weekend. However we can provide this over the holiday period (22 Dec 2018 to 2 Jan 2019) and on dates when we come up as available for Day Care as those are days we will be home.

We have holiday rates applied for 1 Dec 2018 to 31 Jan 2019.
