About Ilona
Hi everyone, I'm Ilona, I'm 30 years old and I would love to look after your pet/s. I come from the Carribeans where rescuing pets was my life. UnfortunateIy, from my island it is common for pet owners to abandon their animals. My job included locating, rescuing, rehabilitating and providing a new home for unwanted pets.

I was also a full time thoroughbred trainer and an assistant dog trainer. I have a high level of knowledge and experience to help you build a strong relationship with your animal. I can offer advice, tips and tricks to create a happy environment for both pet and owner. I'm really passionate about animals, they have shared my life from a young age and I would love to continue working with them.

Ilona Pet sitting and Dog Training is located in Banyo. Only 10mn from the airport.
I am within 15mn walk to Downfall Creek Dog Park and 5mn drive to Nudgee beach. I'll take the dogs to the park/beach once or twice the day, depending on their energy levels. I love interacting and going for a swim with them. It's important to keep their mind busy. I will definitely treat your pet/s and make use of these conveniently close facilities.

Nala had a wonderful time staying with Ilona and Zed. Great communication with regular updates/photos, and a very happy (and tired) pup on pick up. We will definitely be return customers!

Ilona was amazing with my 2 semi-working kelpies. They were straight off the farm to her place and she helped them adapt to city life. She is very experienced and caring. I recommend her to all. Thanks Ilona 😊
