About Caitlin
Please note: I own reactive dogs, and as such, I do not offer any services from my house.

Hello, I'm Caitlin! I love to spend my time walking dogs, especially those with behavioural problems. I'm currently studying Zoology and Animal science, and I'm already equipt with a Cert II in Animal Studies. I've got extensive experience with dog reactivity and anxiety across a wide range of breeds, as well as plenty of experience with high drive, high energy individuals. Any and all training is done using force-free, fear-free methods, and dogs are provided with plenty of treats and games to play!

Or perhaps cats take your fancy? I've been cat sitting for years, from bitey kittens up to a 19 year old with severe health problems. I've even taken a cat on a walk. I've also provided pet sitting services to a range of other animals, such as livestock, birds, small mammals and reptiles (my personal favourites). I would love to help out!

Services offered:
Dog Walking: $25 (One hour)
I take your dog on a walk, simple as that! Any basic training is also done, such as waiting at roads and desensitisation to strange objects and sounds. I try to take a different route every time, and let your dog explore all the strange new smells he finds. Please note: I won't be able to walk dogs on a slip leash, prong collar or e-collar. A well-fitted harness is recommended and preferred.

House Visit: Starts at $15 per visit
I check on your pet, and make sure they are doing ok. You might be going on holiday and need your cats looked after, or are being held back at work and your dog has been alone for a while. I'm open to doing whatever needs to be done., that includes light house duties like taking in the mail or taking out the garbage.

Pet Day Care (3-4 hours): $60
A fun-filled day with me! Perhaps you are going out to dinner and need someone to watch the new puppy for a couple of hours, or your pet simply deserves a special day! There is endless possibilities but we will definitely take a long walk or two, play with some toys and do some exciting enrichment activities.

Dog Training (One hour) $30
I'm NOT a qualified dog trainer (my prices reflect this). While I have trained numerous dog reactive dogs, nervous and 'problematic' dogs, I'm not comfortable enough to train your reactive dogs in a professional setting. However I'm happy to provide training, especially for puppies, on basic things and minor behavioural problems.
