About Sofia
A “crazy dog person” is how my husband describes me. This is his way of saying that he knows that my version of heaven involves dogs, dogs and more dogs!

I’m genuine, caring and loving, and I’ve been a big animal lover as long as I can remember. Having out with the pups is my way of relaxing and get my mind off things, and they always bring out the best of me.

Myself, my husband and our sidekick Magnus (4yo Great Dane) live in a house with a securely fenced backyard in Coburg.

We all enjoy a combination of lazy days on the couch, strolls around the block, a trip to the park and either beach visits or hikes when the weather allows. Going to a cafe, pub or wine bar often includes bringing our dog with us. And there’s no doubt that your dog will be included in all of the above!

Currently I'm studying Dog Behavior & Training with NDTF, and I am a volunteer with a dog rescue group here in Melbourne.

I grew up with my grandparents poodles, our family had a Samoyed when I was a young teenager, at the stables I was always around Rottweilers & German Shepherds, and when I moved away from home I temporarily had a young Belgian Shepherd (tervuren) who needed some healing and training before finding her forever home.

After moving away from home (Sweden), I did a lot of dog walking and sitting during my dogless years when living in Norway, New Zealand and my first year here in Australia.

I also love taking photos - so you can always expect me to keep you updated with photos throughout the day/s!

Sofia is an absolute CHAMP! Super confident with my very very big dog, I absolutely trust her to handle anything Rupert could throw at her. Communication is excellent and she takes the best photos!

Sofia was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Her flexibility, great communication and photos throughout the day had me totally at ease. Not sure my Marty was keen to come home after such a fabulous day.

Our 8 month old GSP has been going to daycare with Sofia for 4 weeks now and he loves it! She goes out of her way to make sure the dogs get lots of exercise and stimulation, including hikes and trips to the beach. Plus the photo updates are too cute.
