We thought it would be nice to introduce our amazing staff to our customers and prospective customers over the coming months. We have been very fortunate to have crossed paths with many of you and your pets over the years but some of our staff are behind the scenes working very hard to give your pets the best possible care whilst staying at the resort and you, our valued customers, do not get to meet these wonderful people.
This month we will start at the beginning, most of our current customers will know these two very well but some people may not have had the opportunity to chat to Paul or Julie face to face.
PAUL & JULIE – Owners, Yarra Valley Pet Resort
Lets begin with Paul; the engine of the business. Paul started out with his interest of showing and breeding Old English Sheepdogs with his late wife. This ultimately led them to purchase Badger Creek Boarding Kennels & Cattery in the early 2000’s which enabled them to further pursue their love of animals.
Paul’s vision for the business is behind the recent changes and constant upgrades to the facilities, without this dedication, his care and concern for our furry guests, friendliness and direction of how to run the business, Yarra Valley Pet Resort would not be the happy, safe, fun place for your pets it is today.
You will mostly find Paul in the home office taking care of everything behind the scenes and at the moment keeping the new building works on track. You will also find Paul out on the road picking up and dropping off your pets when they come and stay with us at the Yarra Valley Pet Resort….. Paul is loving his new van and we are sure your pets are loving it too.
Paul, in his spare time (which is rare!) loves to spend weekends away within Australia and the odd trip back to the UK with Julie to visit family and friends… running and bike riding are also big passions in Paul’s life.
Bubbly Julie; Our very own Mother Duck to all our amazing staff and as our customers like to call her ‘the cat lady’.
Julie came to Australia to live around 11 years ago after she met Paul from their shared love of Old English Sheepdogs. Julie classes herself as the women who likes to feed anything and everyone! Julie puts the highest priority in seeing that all the fur guests are happy, comfortable and enjoying their stay with us…. always going that extra mile.
You will find Julie in the cattery taking care of our cat guests but also lending an ear, sharing her knowledge and understanding to our other staff, helping make sure everyone (furry and none furry!) are taken care of.
Julie, in her spare time loves to keep fit by running and going to the gym, reading, spending time with her family back in the UK and mostly you’ll find her nagging Paul!!
Both Paul and Julie hope to meet you all one day and are always happy to help answer any questions you may have!
