About Gavin
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 pup - a small 12 month old Shitzu Maltese cross. 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.

The settings on this app won't automatically show us as unavailable unless we have two dogs booked in. We'll accept two visitors from different owners at a time - only if we have had experience with both before.

Brooks loved his week long stay with Gavin, the boys and their pup. The multiple updates each day made it much easier to be away knowing he was so well looked after! Brooks absolutely loved the walks, playtime and a new furry friend while away from home. Communication was also easy and quick and he came home one tired pup! Thanks again to Gavin and the boys - we will definitely be back!
