About Gavin
There’s two of us boys (11 & 12), Mum and Dad, and we’d like to establish a long-term relationship with a small number of dogs. Our back yard is surrounded by a solid 1.8m high fence, we have a pretty decent yard with tennis and soccer balls, and a large lounge that is big enough for all of us and two dogs. We live near Mount Stromlo and the Duffy Dog Park and will be happy to get outside with the dogs (on a lead so they don’t chase the Kangaroos) at least twice a day.

We move around a lot with my parents work and that’s the main reason we don’t have our own dogs. But we have a long history of looking after our friends nine year old Shitzu, he’s even flown inter-state to see us – and he loves sleeping at the end of our beds. Since being in Canberra we’ve also had the regular company of few Spoodles. We enjoy their company and the family would be happy to do it more often with well-mannered small or medium dogs. There is someone home at least three days a week, and on the other days the house is only quiet during school hours.

This is a family interest, not a business, if we haven’t met you and your dog we won’t take him/her at short notice. Our history shows, once we have met your dog and spent some time with him/her, they will want to come back.

Gavin and family were fantastic wirh our needy cavoodle. A very warm and flexible family who gave our puppy all the attention, exercise and love he demanded. We will be rebooking.

Amazing hosts. Treated my fur baby like family. Regular photos of adventures which included twice daily walks, being spoiled and fun in the yard! Really accomodating & great communication - easily organised a late pickup after flight delays. 5 stars!
