About Justine

*Licenced by council for daycare and boarding*
*Dog and cat first aid trained*
*Fully insured*

Here at sticks and bones we do things a little differently…. We don’t have kennels, or single play time, we have everyone together all the time socializing, playing and learning. A wise man once said, “never work against mother nature, you only succeed when you work with her” and we follow that motto to the letter everyday! All dogs are then naturally welcomed into our home as if they were one of our own!

We believe all dogs are born balanced and one with mother nature with an in bedded natural order, its just when they are exposed to the hectic lives of humans with very little to no quality ‘dog’ time they get a little wayward. As well, the lack of knowledge now a days about our four legged friends means their needs can sometimes be pushed way back behind ours.

So we welcome all dogs to come and learn what it is to be a dog again! We have a routine for our boarders and daycare which includes lots and lots of outdoor time; running around, sniffing in bushes, playing with each other and generally all the things dogs enjoy doing as well as much needed obediance training, correction and appropriately timed affection. As well as long walks we also have group play where up to 10 dogs can play fetch with one ball with out a fight breaking out!

The Animal Boarding Establishment Act 1963 states: under the act, businesses which provide accommodation for dogs and cats belonging to other people must be licenced by the applicable local council. Premises operated by these businesses are known as animal boarding establishments. The act does not stipulate any time periods for the provision of accommodation, and therefore, in the councils opinion, businesses providing daytime pet accommodation (doggy day care) will require licences. Businesses providing accommodation in a domestic setting (home boarding) will also require licences.
