About Cecilia
Cecilia is a professional animal trainer with on-going qualifications in the field of animal behaviour and dog training. She has worked within the animal industry since 2012, working with and at a range of different animal organisations.

Below are a few of the available services Cecilia offers;

PET HOSTING: With pet hosting, Cecilia will look after your pets as if they are her own. With a secure, enclosed back-garden - that has plenty of sniffing opportunities being multi-tiered. You can be rest assured that your pet will feel safe & relaxed in this environment. Living in Banksia Park, we are also conveniently located near numerous beautiful walking trails including Anstey Hill. So if you have a dog that requires some extra physical exercise that can easily be catered for.

Additionally, Cecilia is a qualified dog trainer, and will ensure to promote overall good dog manners while your dog is in her care - things like jumping up and food manners will automatically be addressed. However, there is also the option to purchase additional behaviours and training during your dogs stay.

Please note: Cecilia is currently only accepting small dogs (<15kg) for pet hosting. Also, accepting other animals for pet hosting (i.e. pocket pets, small birds, etc.) at a discounted price.

HOUSE VISITS: House visits are when you require someone to check in through the day to feed your pets, change the kitty litter (or poop scoop the garden) and/or to give them a nice enriching break - particularly if you work or are gone from the house for long hours.

DOG WALKING: Similar to House visits, this option is great if you just want to break up your dogs day, or maybe you have a dog that is difficult to walk, be it reactive, a strong puller or a puppy. Cecilia will come and collect your dog from your house and take it for an adventure outing. Through-out these walks you can be rest-assured that Cecilia will assist in instilling appropriate walking manners! Pricing is $30 for 30 minutes of walking (this includes training assistance!)

*House Visits and Dog Walking clients must be within a 5km range from Banksia Park, 5091.

Cecilia is a very knowledgeable trainer. She gave us lots of useful advice and strategies for dealing with puppy behaviour. Would not hesitate in using her again.

Fantastic service. Our dog looked like he was having a fabulous time at Cecilia's (thanks for the photos and video). He enjoyed socialising with another dog while picking up new skills thanks to Cecilia's dog training qualifications.

Pet Sitting - Feb 15, 2020
Cecilia was amazing, she looked after my dog and cat perfectly, couldnt of asked for a better sitter. I came back home to a spotless house and two well feed (and trained) fur babies that didnt even seem to notice we were gone lol.
