Why we started Max & Ruby's

Christina and Ben started Max & Ruby’s Pet Sitting with the aim of helping Canberran’s relax when away from their pets.

When Max and Ruby joined our family, we were happy to have less freedom when it came to travel, but found it difficult to find someone who would care for them in our home, giving them the same attention that we would, without complicated and expensive charges. Ruby didn't cope well with new places and people, so a cattery isn’t an option for us.

Once we moved to Canberra, we found our options even more limited geographically, so we decided that we could fill that gap. We have always shared a lifelong love of animals of all shapes and sizes and can’t imagine a better job than this!

Pet sitting or Cattery/Kennel?

Although there are many great catteries and kennels that can take care of your pets, sometimes they, or yourself, don’t like them being away from the safe and comfortable surroundings of your own home. Many animals, like fish, rabbits, guinea pigs and hobby farm animals don’t have boarding facilities available to them.

That’s where Max & Ruby’s comes in. We provide care for your pets and hobby farm animals in your own home. Your pet doesn’t have to worry about being with other unfamiliar animals, or dealing with people they don’t know in unfamiliar locations. They can stay in their own home, on their own bed, with the minimum of fuss or stress.
