You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking.

Experience with animals and own pets

I have two dogs named Duke and Astro. Duke is at Rottweiler and Astro is a cross between a Boerboel and a German Shepherd. Duke is about a year and a half old and Astro is 6 months old. I love both my dogs so much and love that their personalities are very different. We got Duke due to our neighbours moving and not being able to take him and his sister with, and Astro's previous owners had so many doggies that they had to get rid of him and his two brothers.

We took all three of them in, gave one away to a family member and sadly the other puppy, Demon, passed away. Duke is a very lovable Rottweiler, despite people’s beliefs about Rotties, and will knock you over just to be able to give you kisses and love. Astro loves any kind of attention, which is understandable, as he is still a puppy. I have experience looking after all breeds of dogs - big and small.
