About Ronja

I am a lifelong animal lover, and my family and I would be delighted to look after your pets while you are away on holiday.

My partner and I are both school teachers, so we are available every school holidays. During this time your dog would be 100% involved in our family life. My partner has shared custody of a beautiful animal-loving 5 year old daughter who is very experienced with our dogs and other pets.

We really care about the protection and welfare of all animals. We can’t stand the thought of unhappy animals (domestic and undomesticated). We are regular donators to animal protection agencies such as the SPCA, and we have many adopted pets.

We would love to make your pet feel safe and happy while you are away, and we can guarantee unlimited attention and cuddles to make sure that he or she doesn’t even miss you!

We have two dogs – a giant breed (German Shepherd x Maremma) and a miniature breed (miniature foxy x Jack Russell) so we are experienced at both ends of the size spectrum. We have owned many different breeds but mostly German Shepherds. We also have two cats, two horses and lots of ducks and chooks. We live a stone’s throw away from the beach where our dogs (and horses and kids and us) love to swim and play.

Since we are only offering boarding during our holidays, we will be home with your dog all of the time so there will be no loneliness. We have a variety of options on how to care for your dog. We have an almost fully fenced house area around the house where our dogs run free and if your dog is happy at our home and with our dogs then s/he can run free too. If your dog needs to be contained, then we have a large fenced dog run which your dog can share with one of our dogs for company if it makes your dog feel happier. At night your dog (or you!) can choose between sleeping in one of the four dog beds in the carport or sleep inside in our bedroom where our dogs sleep (I’ll be honest – they often sleep in the bed with us).

In our holidays we are always outside and our dogs are with us – even if we go somewhere in the car, they come too! If your dog needs regular grooming or medication we are happy to help.

We are happy for you to come and visit us with your dog, particularly if you are away for a long time, so that you are happy with us and where we live and so that your dog can connect with us too.

Please note - we can only accept speyed/neutered dogs please.

Our dog Phoebe adored being at Ronja and Vickis and it was such a special treat for her. They went above and beyond to make sure she was happy and even took her along with the other dogs to the beach. We'll be back!

Ronja (and Vicki) were so wonderful at looking after our dog Quade. He was so well looked after, and had lots of room to run around with their 2 lovely dogs. Ronja sent through photos of his stay and we could see he was relaxed and happy and a little bit spoilt! He had a blast playing on the nearby beach with his new friends. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as dog sitters, and we're so happy that we've found a great place for Quade to visit when we go away.
