About Lois
Welcome to my profile.
My name is Lois and I am originally from Scotland however have lived in Australia now for four years.
I have a long career working with a wide variety of animals as I currently manage a foaling unit for race horses here in SE Queensland.
I am qualified to care for horses with a Higher National Diploma in equine science along with a teaching qualification for horse riding and have previously run a pet sitting service in Scotland for three years between 2009-2011. (I also have expertise in administering medicines via injection, orally and first aid for animals).
After this time I was then employed to work for HM The Queen to breed her Highland Ponies on her Scottish estate - Balmoral where working with dogs became part of my daily life.

I have a keen passion for working cocker spaniels and in particular training them to be successful working gun dogs. I have recently imported my own Working cocker spaniel to Australia and we are now a regular entrant with Retrieving Australia Dog trials.

I live on a large horse property 35km from Beaudesert, where I have hours of trails for dog walking.
My back yard is fully fenced and roughly half an acre in size - plenty of space for play time.

I hold a current police clearance certificate and I am studying towards gaining my pet sitting qualification through online learning.

I treat all my animals as part of my family, this includes my horse, dog, cat and two chickens all of which are very flexible and friendly with other animals. However it is extremely important any visiting animals are also the same.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.

Pet Day Care - Aug 26, 2018
Lois made sure my dog was feeling great and had a lot of exercise. The property is secured for the dogs to roam around. Her dog Beth has also been a great match to my medium sized Labradoodle. I can highly recommend leaving your pet in Lois care.
