About Gavin
We are lucky enough to have small stable of calm and gentle dogs who keep coming back to us, and prefer to only take on these dogs that we have already established a relationship with.

If you are regular visitor and the app says we are unavailable, ask us anyway.

There’s two of us boys (13 & 14), 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 approx. 1000m from Mount Stromlo and across the road from a park, so will be happy to get outside with the dogs (on a lead!).

Since June 2021 we have our own little dog - a small Shitzu Maltese cross and since December 2021 we have a second Shitzu with us permanently. Since being in Canberra we’ve had the regular company of many Spoodles and Cavoodles. We enjoy their company and the family would be happy to do it more often with well-mannered small or small-medium dogs. During most business days the house is 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. Similarly, if your dog/s aren’t friendly, calm and well behaved, we’re not the dog sitters for you.

Gavin and Angela were absolutely fabulous! They made us feel extremely comfortable with leaving our girl while away, sending constant updates and photos. We are lucky to have such amazing people near us that care for our little girl the same way she would be cared for at our own house. Thank you both
