    We are heading to Jindy in August to do Avalanche course and 3-4 days of skiing. We will be taking our 6 month border collie with us. I have been looking online and can’t find anyone with availability to do dog walking/sitting while we are away during the day. Anyone have any recommendations for services like this in Jindabyne? We are staying centrally in pet friendly 1 bed apartment with courtyard and lawn. Is it just best to put something on gumtree?

    Let him roam the lakeside, he may instinctively round up all the shore side camping grubs

    There's a new lady that does just this. Her business name is Snowy Paws Pet Service, Nikki, a vet nurse. https://www.facebook.com/Snowypetwalks/

    I'm about to use her for my border collie, will let you know what I think. But from what I've read she's got a good rep.

    Holly feeds and takes small dogs for minding. But not walking I believe.

    That’s great to hear. Unfortunately already booked out for August!!! They are talking about hiring more staff so I might get lucky. Sounds like a good business opportunity for non-skiers in the area during peak times

    I think she has put some staff on. Good for her, she’s started up a very professional product.

    I can confirm Bundy loved spending time with https://www.facebook.com/Snowypetwalks/ they were great. Holly was also helpful but the times just didn't work out for us. Noticeboards on facebook as well helped us find a seasonnaire to fill in the gaps. Big thumbs up on this trip and a big shoutout to the Jindabyne Brewery for being dog friendly inside and out. Their beers were awesome too :thumbs:
