About Ratan Kumar
If you are looking for a loving, safe, happy and comfortable home for your pets while you enjoy your holiday, feel free to get in touch!

No matter big or small, my wife and I have so much love and respect to give to pets and animals from all walks of life. Why? Because the pets we have owned or looked after have bought so much happiness, positive change and new learnings into our lives.

Between the both of us, have over 20 years of experience looking after big and small pets/animals such as puppies, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and horses.

I spent over 15 years training Olympic standard horses as I competed all over the world in showjumping and dressage. My incredible lived experiences with horses enables me to look after pets in a patient, gentle and nurturing way. I have also looked after my own pets (puppies, dogs, rabbits and birds) with love and care.

Meanwhile, my wife has experience looking after her own pets (such as her Bichon Frise dog - see picture - and her guinea pig). She has also provided dedicated pet sitting services since 2018.

Our property is peaceful and quiet with beautiful parks and nature reserves surrounding us. Our backyard is fully fenced so perfect for outdoor dogs and other pets. If you prefer for your dog and other pets to be kept indoors, that’s an option too.

If required, we are able to provide close to 24/7 company for your pets as we work from home full-time (except for Thursdays). We currently don’t have any pets of our own so there is plenty of time for us to provide all the love and care your pet needs.

We are very active and visit the beach and parks often for walks. We would love to have the company of puppies/dogs when we head outdoors.

We look forward to a discussion on how we can work with you to tailor your pets experience at our home. We are very happy for you to meet us before booking a day/night sit to make sure we are all compatible. We are happy to provide photos/updates of your pets daily.

1. *WE can provide pick up services for your pet. Extra charges will apply for pick up/drop off service.*

2. **PLEASE NOTE: only vaccinated pets and pets up-to-date with their worming, ticks, and flea medication will be accepted in our home.**

Pet Day Care - Jul 21, 2022
Ratan and his wife was very accommodating and welcoming. It was such a short notice but they happily looked after my little fur babies. Frankie and Summer were both well taken care of and it was comforting receiving updates from them.
