Our fabulous families

All our approved Holiday Homes are dog lovers and have met our high standards in pet care.


Noelene Roberts

I am retired and live with my Lakeland Terrier called Tarn in Nelson city.  We have been welcoming dogs into our home for the last 7 years and have lots of regular customers.

We have a spacious section for rascals to run around and back onto the Railway Reserve.  I enjoy tramping and various activities with the 50 + group and have had dogs most of my life.



Shirley & Terry Melville

We live in Stoke with our Lhasa Apso X called Jade who loved to make new friends!  We have been welcoming dogs into our home for the last 3 years and have lots of regular customers.

In our spare time, we enjoy gardening, walking and crafts.



Lasma Vensberga

I live in Tahunanui with my husband Armins and 3 year old daughter.  We have a small section but enjoy taking lots of walks around the area with our dog Dillie.

I have been working with Pet Sitters since 2011 as a Dog Walker/Pet Sitter and providing a holiday home so have many happy regular customers. I am now Acting Manager.

We are an active family who enjoy the outdoors.


Irene Steele

I live in Richmond with my Maltese X called Millie and have a human border from Turkey who loves little dogs!

Millie has been walking with the Pet Sitters pack since 2008 and has made many friends which she now enjoys sharing her home with.

We mainly have toy - small breeds stay so they can have a good hoon around together.

Mark & Colette Meeske

We live in Stoke and are originally from South Africa.

We don't currently don't have a dog of our own which we miss and following our sons moving out of home, we're finding it a bit quiet!

We are Pastors at Nelson Bays church and have a flexible schedule.  We love getting outdoors and going for walks so we could do with a four legged friend to join us!


Wendy & Scott Mackay

I live in Richmond with my husband Scotty along with our 3 cats and guinea pig, so take lower energy dogs that are used to living with cats.   As I walk groups of dogs during the day, your dog will certainly make lots of new friends!



Susan Drew

I live in Nelson city and up until recently lived with my 16 year old Border Terrier who I miss dearly.  I have a spacious section for rascals to romp around and work from home, so I'm around most of the day.  In my spare time, I enjoy walking, mountain biking and gardening.


Christine & Peter Musgrave

We live on 2/3 acre behind the Playhouse cafe in Upper Moutere which is set within 11 hectares with walking tracks and stream. Christine is semi-retired and Peter works part time from home.  We are currently fostering a young Dalmatian who loves other dogs!


Jennie Larsen

I live in Stoke and have had dogs all my life both in town and on a lifestyle block.

I am now retired and lost my last little friend who I really miss so would love to have a furry friend around the house again.

I enjoy tramping and am used to dogs of all shapes and sizes!


Christine Elwood

I live in Stoke on a spacious section and am enjoying retirement except for the fact I miss having a dog around the place! Up until recently, I shared my life with life with a Miniature Poodle and now love to have dogs to come and stay.


Matt & Hayley Davis

We are originally from the UK & now live in Richmond with our 2 girls Amber & Lucy who are 9 and 5 years old.  

As a previous Pet Sitters customer for our Springer Spaniel Daniel, we now miss having a dog around the place. We do have 2 guinea pigs who are kept in a secure hutch outside.

We have a nice fenced in backyard with plenty of amazing walking spots nearby. Matt enjoys running so lots of exercise is on the daily schedule!


David Jones & Katrina Carson

We live Nelson city and have a smallish but fully fenced back yard.
Billy is our 3rd Westie and he would love to have the company of other small dogs now that he has recently lost his older sister.

We love going for walks at the beach and around the hills near our home. We also would enjoy the company of another 4 legged friend from time to time.


More families needed!

If you love dogs, have a fenced section and are home for part of the day, we would love to hear from you!
