About Craig

My family and I have always been around animals. I've always had a respect for them, irritate them and they respond, love them and they respond. Respect and Love are the key words. Growing up, I was always more excited than the dogs when we took them for walks (imagine that, right)! My wife's best friend growing up was her family pooch (a mix breed of love and fluffiness), she would run home most days so that she could lay with him sprawled out, soaking up the summer sun. In Winter, cuddled on the couch under blankets was the order of the day.

When we met and our relationship got serious, we got a short haired domestic cat, Friday (born on a Friday). She was more like a dog, bathing with us, playing fetch and cuddling. When our son was born, she instantly bonded to him and they became the best of friends. He was not allowed to go anywhere without her keeping a close eye on him. Friday also had a sixth sense, whenever my son was ill, she would wander around his bedside waiting for him to get better.

We have done quite a bit of dog sitting for friends and neighbours in the past - it was always exciting for my son to go and feed "Luna and Aries" or take "Max" for a walk.

We do pet-sitting at your residence - which normally entails lots of hugs, cuddles and good attention. We can also do pet-sitting over a day / night to ensure that all's okay. We do dog-walking too, normally about 1 - 2 kms (depending on how big your dog(gy) is). Some people say that their pet is like their children. I disagree completely, their pets ARE their children. When we do walks, we'll give you the route and share our location, so that you know where we are every step of the way!!!

I love how dogs are loving, and they are not afraid to show it, almost like young children. They are just bursting to show that love to anyone who "listens".

I love that cats are different - they give this impression that they don't care, but deep down they're just as loyal, devoted and loving as dogs (if not more so).

My family and I would love to take care of your fur baby(ies). If it's just a simple walk, some brushing, to feed them or just for some human contact, we would give them the care and attention that they so lovingly deserve.

Craig was fantastic. He kept me informed how my cats were doing. I received messages and pics. My cats were well taken care of and happy. I will definitely recommend his service. Your pets and home will be respected.

Craig did a great job of looking after my cats while we were on holiday. He really likes cats and gave them the cuddles they needed. Thanks a lot !

I will definitely let him know next time I need help to take care of my kitties !
