MAXI Cavoodle

Ridgeview Retreat definitely is a doggy heaven. The fenced spaces the dogs have to run around in & explore all day is just fabulous & we could not have asked for better care of our puppy! Louise was fabulous...highly recommend!

WHISKY Cavoodle

We were delighted to have our much loved cavoodle stay at Ridgeview Retreat. Louise and Stephen were very caring & attentive with him, which gave me complete peace of mind. He loves his stay and got to paly with other puppies as well as the H U G E backyard to run around in. Louise was very genuine, warm with wonderful pet sitting skills. I recommend Ridgeview Retreat next time you are needing your furry friends looked after.

Staffy/Cattle Dog & Japanese Spritz

Louise obviously has great understanding of dogs. She took time to speak with us, and to make the dogs comfortable in the surroundings. We couldn't be happier with the way our two dogs spent the weekend with Louise.

HUXLEY Greyhound

Huxley, our recently retired Greyhound had an absolute ball with Lou. She sent daily photos so we could catch up with all the great things he was up to - 5km walks, swims in the pool! I highly recommend Louise to care for your pooch :)

ERNIE Staffy X

This was mine and my furbabys first experience with a pet sitter and boy was I impressed. I had recently moved up to QLD from Sydney and had to fly my Ernie up some time after and it turned out he couldnt stay with me at the place I was living at the time. It was getting late in the evening and at very short notice Louise was in touch with me saying she would love to help out. She came to meet Ernie that evening and agreed to look after him for the following week for me. Ernie was a .bit shy at first but didnt seem to take long to come around. LOUISE was in constant contact with me over the week sending pictures and texts keeping me up to date with how Ernie was doing. She is a beautiful person and puts her heart and soul into what she does (along with her hubby lol). I would not hesitate recommending Louise to anyone looking for an honest reliable friendly lover of dogs to look after their pet. I will definately be using her again

LILLI Jack Russell

Lilli has just had her first sleep over with Louise and her husband. She has come home very happy and relaxed. The amazing property had plenty of space for her to get discover lots of new things.. When we arrived to pick her up she is sitting up there watching the footy on tv with Uncle Stephen ... I would have no hesitation in recommending Louise and Steve to anyone who wants the pup to come home happy relaxed and well cared for.

Great Danes

5 star service, PLUS!!

My two boys have never had so much fun in such a short period of time!!  We're definitely coming back.  Louise was also a really big help in doggie behaviour too, so a wealth of knowledge.  Kept up to date with lots of photos throughout their stay, which made me feel at ease leaving them

BELLA, Staffy Cross 

Bella  has been so much calmer since we’ve been able to walk her since her stay with Aunty Lou.  What a difference!  The walks are actually enjoyable now and we can now bond with our girl, like we’ve always dreamed.  Thank you for all your advice and patience

with Bella.

MAC Staffy 

Mac has sooo much fun each week with Aunty Lou.  He comes home and sleeps for a week!  I like how Louise takes him for walks with the rest of her pack, and sends me lots of photos whilst I am work, so I know that he is having a great time.  Couldn't recommend her highly enough.  Thanks Aunty Lou!

Rhodesian Ridgeback

Louise was an absolute lifesaver. She was able to look after my pup Ned at very short notice. I received regular photos and updates everyday and knew that he was being extremely well looked after.
Their set up is perfect and the dogs are all extremely calm and at home. Highly recommend.

When needing a sitter again, Louise will be my first choice.

BELLA Whippet

I am overly happy and impressed with the way Louise handled my enquiry from the start. Bella was treated as one of there own and I will recommend Louise to anyone who needs someone to look after their doggy. If you need peace of mind whilst away from your pet, Louise is the answer.

Our precious pooch was treated like a queen. Thank you so much for taking excellent care of her! Highly recommended for a 5 star pet escape :)  The photo updates were fantastic too!

This is totally doggie paradise .... the owners are completely passionate about dogs and their care.  They really took extra effort for my dog whilst in their care.  They had such a good time that I nearly had to drag him back to the car .. yikes!  Obviously he had a very good holiday whilst we had to get away.  Totally recommend this doggie oasis.


Doggie Day Care


True Doggie Oasis!  Fully fenced to keep our little Houdini in.  Louise is obviously very passionate our dogs, and it shows.  Charlie loves her weekly visits.  Totally recommend.

ELVY Tibetan Spaniel

Thank you Lou and Steve for looking after our old boy Elvy! He had the best week of his life! Learning new things and making new friends. We even learnt some new things about Elvy from his stay with you! I love how you both treat all of your furries as your own little babies and their mum's and dads as long time friends. Such amazing people who do the most amazing job of loving your pooches as they do their own and keeping owners minds at complete ease with daily updates and photos. Thank you both again! We wouldn't take Elvy anywhere else! We can't wait to bring him back for more fun!!! xxx
