About us


We Are

Anna & Blair have been dog-sitting since 2014. What started as a pass-time has grown to a passion for dog care. Rocky, Wookie and Jack are Anna & Blair’s friendly dogs. They have all been adopted (Rocky in 2010, Wookie in 2015 & Jack in 2017). Their love for animals doesn’t stop at dogs though. Anna & Blair have a small property in Clarkville where they raise rescued chickens and sheep.



We at Rocky & Co. Pet Care offer our furry guests a compassionate 24/7 care in a home environment. We are not a kennel!

Every guest stays with us in our own house and with our three little dogs: Rocky, Wookie and Jack. Our property is completely fenced off to offer a secure area for all dogs.

Our dog-sitting and dog daycare services include regular daily walks to keep your dog exercised and fit because we want you to have a relaxed dog by the time you take him home with you.

At night time, they can sleep on any of our several dog beds, beanbags and couches in our living room.

With plenty of grassed area, the dogs have a huge space to play and socialise with other friendly dogs. We assess every new furry client’s behaviour before we accept them into the group. This is why we only look after a limited number of dogs at one time to make sure that we can offer the best care and our full attention to each dog.

Rocky & Co. Pet Care is the homestay for your dog. We like to say that our home is your dog’s second home, and it’s part of our mission to give dog owners the peace of mind they need when they’re away from their furry babies.

So, get in touch and schedule a Free Play Date to meet us and our dogs! We will be delighted to show you and your dog around!

A day at Rocky & Co’s dog daycare

So, this is basically how we start our day (when it’s not raining). Dogs all over the place, running and playing together. Today, we also say good-bye to our two long-term guests Zyra and Ares. It was such a delight to have them around. They got along with everyone. Ares, who started as a wee scary boy on the first two days, blossomed and started making lots of friends. Soon later he was playing with everyone, feeling very confident to play fetch and some doggy (friendly) wrestle. I’ll miss them so much! Zyra especially as she became my wee girl in a world of mostly make dogs.

Impossible not to fall in love with those eyes

Ares and Paw #pug love to play together. Yesterday, because of the rain, we had to stay indoors for most of the morning. So these two decided to share the rope and play together on the couch. I saw those eyes and thought… Oh, my! How can anyone not fall in love with these fur-boys?

These are Ruby and Steve. They’re two rescues who have been so lucky to find a forever home with very loving parents. They com to daycare every week. They love to play fetch and this picture was taken when they were both very tired from an afternoon of running around the garden and chasing the ball. These guys are so photogenic!
