Lucky Dog gives our Boyz a holiday they love as much as we enjoy our time away. Thank you Stuart for caring for them as we do and welcoming them to your home.

What our customers say about us...

"I have two mini schnauzers called Aiden and Angus, they are both City dogs who live at Surry Hills. I had long service leave and went to Europe with my partner for 4 weeks. Given the length of time we couldn’t bare putting them in a traditional boarding kennel.

Through a friend we found out about Lucky Dog Pet Services. It was a great service and reasonably priced, Stuart picked up Aiden and Angus and dropped them back to us which took the stress and hassle out of it, particularly when you are organising to go away. We received pictures of the guy at the beach most days and having a well deserved rest of the couch with Tara and Stuart in the evening. They came back, fit happy and I am sure want to go back asap. They loved their run and swim on the beach.  Thanks for looking after them Stuart and Tara,"

"OMG they had a ball !! thanks so much Stu and Tara for looking after our 'babies' while we went to Ireland for 4 weeks - we were so comfortable and confident they would be loved just like they were yere own!! And they were - love the pics and the updates while we were away - will be booking in for next holidays.

Can certainly recommend! Buddy and Rosie have their home away from home there - thanks 'dog whisperer Stu' "

Lucky Dog pet services is our golden retrievers 'home away from home'.To be able to go away and be confident your pet will receive great care and attention. Maggie enjoys her beach visits and receiving emails & pics from Stuart is very reassuring.


Thanks Stuart from Dianne & Maggie



Thank goodness for Lucky Dog! We are extremely fussy about where we leave our dogs and couldn't be more pleased that we can leave them with Stuey & Tara when we go away. They are genuine dog lovers and really do offer that "boutique" personal experience for our two beloved pugs. I really wouldn't leave them anywhere else.

 My timid little man just loves Tara and Stuart . He was so at home at their place , even slept in the bedroom with them in his bed of course . Thank you so much for the love and attention you paid to him while he was with you .

Our dog Scout has just spent five nights at Lucky Dog Pet Service and Boarding and we couldn't be happier with the service provided. Stuart kept in touch daily with photos and updates and with only 4 dogs maximum at a time Scout was not overwhelmed. No time to be bored either as Stuart provided daily (and sometimes twice daily) beach walks. We are very lucky to have Lucky Dog so close by and will definitely be using this great service in the future.

Mya has stayed with Lucky Dog a couple of times and I cannot fault the care and attention she was given, We were messaged photos and updates often and altogether a very good experience. Have no qualms at all about leaving Mya with Stuart.
If your pet's care is important to you then you can be assured that care is just as important to Stuart.

"Lucky Dog Pet Services & Boarding is your right place and service for you pet. By Experience I had a very very good service and quality when i board in my pet Yoshi. And knowing it was Yoshi's first time way from me he really enjoy it being in this place. Stuart he very aware about pet's needs so he takes them to a walk in the beach, the place is amazing and full of toys and places for the pets walk around and rest.
Recommended. Stuart Thank you for your services i really appreciated.
The photo was taken by Stuart when Yoshi was there, this one is in a walk in the beach and says everything."

"Home away from home care for Angie"

Lucky Dog accepted our 5 month old puppy into their home and gave him all the love and support that he would have got at home. 

We cannot praise Stuart enough for keeping us updated on Snoopy's health and well being whilst Snoopy was in his care. 

We would strongly recommend Lucky Dog Pet Service to anyone who needs someone special to look after the smaller member of your household - your loved dog, whoever it may be.

Thank you Stuart,

Steve, Liz and Snoopy

Dear Stu

We just wanted to thank you so much for having Lenny and Livvy (Labrador twins) to stay with you!  It was so good to know our spoilt fur babies were in a home away from home, sleeping inside next to the fire and getting love and walks just as they do at home!  We loved our daily updates and photos and it was awesome to stay in touch whilst away. Lenny and Livvy seemed to have a ball and we have already booked our next holiday in with you! 

I highly recommend your services to anyone looking for boarding short or long term, your place is definitely a home not a kennel and they are members of your family not just numbers!

Sam had a fantastic time with Stuart and Tara, thank you so much for really looking after him. I think he was actually more upset leaving you than he was leaving us!! I will definitely use you guys again, and recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again and see you next time!

We feel so fortunate to have found such trustworthy, caring and skilled carers for our pup! Carrie has had several short stays now, and from her 1st visit she was so comfortable with Stuart and Tara it looked like she felt right at home! It is so good to know that we can go away without feeling guilty about leaving Carrie behind, knowing that she is having her own little holiday! Thanks again guys!

Thank you so much Stuart from Lucky Dog Pet Service. Our pug Missy was looked after with great care and attention. The daily emails and photos made our family feel safe in the knowledge she was being well looked after. I would definitely recommend this service and look forward to using it again

Thank you Lucky Dog! Our Bilbo pines in big dog boarding kennels. For years we have had to rely on friends to mind him. Your service was perfect! A small, affordable home-based service that understood his ( and our) anxieties. Loved the photo updates of his 'holiday'. He was so happy and relaxed with you. Definitely worth the trip from Sydney. Return visits guaranteed.
