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 will be happy to get outside with the dogs (on a lead so they don’t chase the Kangaroos) at least twice a day.

As of September 2020 we now have our own little pup - an 8 week old Shitzu Maltese cross and will need a little time to settle him. We have a long history of looking after other dogs, some have even flown inter-state to see us – we are happy for sleeps 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. Similarly, if your dog/s aren’t friendly, calm and well behaved, we’re not the dog sitters for you. And with our little pup 'Stan', your dog will need to be unfazed by the constant puppy attention.
