27 May – 02 Jul 2016

I’m in Baywater a suburb on Sydney’s Northern Beaches looking after “STAN”, a very smart Pug/Beagle.

It’s a lovely house with huge Pittwater water views, so I enjoy waking up to stunning views of yachts on the majestic Pittwater.

The area is close to a very popular dog park where Stan gets to socialise with many other local four legged friends.   It really is quite a social occasion here where you get to meet and chat with all the neighbours.  So, when I’m walking, everybody knows and loves Stan so a quick walk can turn into a series of lengthy chats.

It really is a magnificent area, close to stunningly beautiful national parks, cycling and walking trails, kayaking and all with the Sydney CBD an hour away.

What the Hosts Said…

Anthony looked after our pug/beagle cross, Stan, and our home for 5 weeks in May and June 2016.

We selected Anthony on the strength of his previous reviews and he certainly lived up to the recommendations.

Stan was in lovely condition on our return and appeared perfectly content, he also seemed more responsive to our commands, so Anthony must have used some of his "dog whisperer" skills on him.

It was a great pleasure to receive regular photographs of Stan, unprompted, from Anthony, who also definitely appeared to enjoy his time with Stan.

We left our house in spotless condition and returned to find it the same, with the addition of a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates from Anthony as a "Thanks" for his stay.
BR> Happy dog, tidy house, plants watered, including the 7 orchids, couldn't have asked for more and we are happy to highly recommend Anthony as a considerate and expert, pet/house sitter.
