Service Description
My passion for animals has led me to pursue ongoing dog training with the "Alpha Canine Group " where I take my female Akita who is currently level 4 qualified. She loves playing with furry friends and lives happily with my parrot.

I love all animals, particularly dogs and have had 20 years experience owning dogs, ducks, chickens, rabbits, birds and guinea pigs.

I have a strong knowledge base in the care and management of these animals. I am also an ongoing foster carer with the RSPCA and also a member of the Northside Native Wildlife Sanctuary.

My Akita has been trained through the Alpha Canine Group and over time I have acquired a keen understanding of canine behaviour and training. I am currently in the process of starting the acredited National Dog Training Federation Course to further develop my skills. I can gladly assist in certain dog behavioural issues, if required.

I also spend time working with working dogs to further develop my skills in all aspects of dog training and behaviour. I can administer oral medications for dogs, cats and birds and provide complimentary walks (boarding clients only), treats and grooming as part of my service.

Rest assured your pets will be provided with a loving, respectful and safe environment where they will be accepted as part of the family.
