About Gavin
From November 2021 we will only be taking dogs that we have already established a relationship with.

There’s two of us boys (11 & 13), 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!).

As of June 2021 we now have our own little dog - a small Shitzu Maltese cross and from December 2021 we will 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.

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

100000% - totally caring and loving exp, the entire family was onboard to make me feel comfortable and my Dog super loved. It was my first time so I was a bit scared (more than my Dog) but they made it so lovely and caring. - 5 Star from Sarj too.

Massive thank you to Gavin and family (and Stan the pup) for taking the absolute best care of Freddie!! He had the best time which I think was because he was made to feel so at home. The daily updates of Freddie looking so happy made us feel so comfortable! Thanks also for dropping him to us and offering for him to stay longer when we realised we had to quarantine. Freddie will be back!! Thanks!!
