Come to Canberra the Capital of Australia - in Autumn 2019
We are heading overseas from mid March until late April 2019.
Our Golden Retriever Jasper and our new pup Archie (half border collie and half golden retriever) will need someone to fill their water bowls, open their food cans as they lack opposable thumbs and take them for daily walks.............And company of course.
Our Home & Location
Canberra is the Capital of Australia and surrounded by bush - hence the name the Bush Capital.
We have many attractions including:...
The National Arboretum
The National Zoo and Aquarium and Jamala Lodge.

Casino Canberra and much much more.
We are 3 hours from Sydney, 2 1/2 hourse from the Snowy mountains and 2 hours to the beach.
We have miles and miles of bushwalking trails, some that you can see from our front door.
So much to see for your mini break in the Australian Capital Territory. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Jasper and Archie, our dogs, have different needs as Jasper is 8 and Archie is 6 months old at the moment. (September 2018) They both need walks.
Jasper has had his cruciate ligament repaired recently and should be up and running by March next year. He meanders when he walks and likes to smell every blade of grass. Don't forget the poop bags as he loves to wait until he has an audience on the ovals opposite our house, before he poops....
Archie is more high octane and will wander everywhere at a hundred miles an hour. We do take him to the dog park where he can run and tire himself out. He is a much nicer little fellow when he is tired.
they both need feeding twice a day and really that is about it.
We will leave a car for the lucky house sitters as it makes it easier to get around in Canberra.
It is also avaialble in the rare instance that you need to take a dog to the vet. + More info
