Welcome to Beautiful Creatures Pet Minding Services

We are an award winning family operated business, giving exceptional care to all kinds of animals since 2005.

Beautiful Creatures is a family business, which only employs the services of mature and experienced carers. Colleen and her husband Graeme operate the business 7 days a week.
We offer professional, caring in-home pet minding services at your home where they are comfortable and content.

Colleen Starkey established Beautiful Creatures Pet Minding Service in 2005. She has a lifetime of experience with all kinds of animals - large and small - and has been a foster carer for Doggie Rescue and NSW Animal Welfare League.

Colleen has had a special interest in providing a safe and loving environment for the "new and expectant mothers" of the animal world.

"A pet will teach you about tolerance; unconditional love; new cleaning skills; how to laugh like a drain; what joy it is to fallasleep with a furry person; how puppy breath is the nicest smell on earth; what fun it is to come home to a pet; that a pet is the best listener on earth; that pet hair on your clothes is a badge of office; that your face can hurt from smiling; that you look forward to waking up in the morning; that exercise can be pure joy; that you'll never be lonely; that you will make new friends who also love animals."
- Colleen Starkey | Beautiful Creatures

  • Pets with medical conditions
  • Recuperating pets
We will call you; send an SMS or an email to you with a report about how things are at home.

Dog Walking

Beautiful Creatures can provide regular or casual dog walking, or maybe your pooch prefers a trip to the dog park to meet up with friends.

We only walk one dog (or one family of dogs) at any one time. This way your best friend has our complete attention for the duration of the walk.

Our professional dog walkingservice is available across the Upper and lower North Shore including Berowra, Hornsby, Milson's North Sydney.

Rate per 30 minute walk starts at $22 including GST for 1 dog.

Pet Taxi

Boarding Kennel, Vet, Grooming Salon, Play Date or a visit to Nanna. Does your pet have an important appointment?

We can get them there happily, safely, and on time in our specially fitted out vehicle. You will recognise it as soon as we arrive.

Beautiful Creatures always drives carefully with your precious cargo!

Rates on application (depending on kilometres) - Call to find out more.
