Behind the Scenes of

Billy's Day-Care For Dogs

 

Billy’s Day-Care for Dogs is Perth's original and longest running dog day-care at 9 years old and still going strong.

As the first large dog day-care in Perth the concept, that is now widely used in other Perth dog day-care centres, was developed by Rebecca Vary, assisted by her trusty 11-year-old Bichon frieze “Pokey”.

Rebecca grew up in a home with German shepherd's, cats, horses and cows. Influenced by her animal loving parents she developed a love and respect for animals from an early age. She raised her first dog from aged four, a female Labrador cross she named Billy.

Rebecca travelled to, and trained in, the USA to study and gain experience in all aspects of the dog day-care business, and made many contacts with people in the industry that she now considers friends. This network has become a valuable asset in Billy's Day-Care for Dogs continuing to stay ahead of it's competitors to provide the dogs of Perth the best day-care experience possible.

 

Rebecca holds her certificate III in Companion Animal Services, as do many of our staff, and have a wide variety of industry professionals to call upon for information and exchange of information when it comes to dog behaviour.

 

In 2009, Billy's won the Best New business award at the BEC business awards, Rebecca was presented with the award by the Mayor of the City of Belmont. Also in 2009 and again in 2010 Billy's was a nominee in the Dogs Life magazine "pet people awards".

 

The staff at Billy’s share Rebecca's respect and interest in animals, and together they provide a loving, safe and enrichment filled environment for dogs in Perth.
