I am an experienced, trained and qualified Dog Trainer and Animal Care Professional.
I currently have: - Certificate II in Animal Care - First Aid for Animals Certification - Dangerous Dogs Assessment and Handling Certification - Emergency Animal Nursing Certification - Experience in working and herding dog training - Experience in training tracking and conservation dogs - Experience in Bite Work and Dangerous Dogs
I have grown up with every animal on the sun - dogs, cats, rabbits, snakes and more.
I am one of the few sitters who has industry experience along with training from some of the best in the country, if not the world. I have been in the animal care industry for many years alongside training and behaviours work - including aiding in the training of tracking dogs for Africa, training scent detection dogs and working with rescues to rehabilitate and rehome.
I am kind, patient and my entire job and career focus is the care for animals in my home. I have endless time for animals of all species and size.
For dogs who are coming for Day Care and Boarding: - The house includes a dig pit, a water pit, a chew box, enrichment games and equipment, outdoor and indoor bedding, shaded and sun areas and both grassed and paved areas. They will even have their own outdoor lounge set! - There will also be constant monitoring with security cameras in place to watch them if they are without physical supervision. - Overnight Stays also include feeding (including all special dietary requirements), a warm bed inside the home, and playtime of an evening and morning. We even have a special couch that can extend into a huge pull out bed so all dogs can have a couch cuddle with us and get all the attention they need. - We regularly go on adventures like hikes, beach days and bush walks. Whatever your pup enjoys and likes to do in their day, we strive to make it happen.
For House Visits: - Whatever the needs are of your furry (or feathery) friends while you are away, I am happy to oblige. - The house visit will include feeding and watering, cleaning up any litter or toileting areas, general upkeep of the animal's environment (cleaning up the mess, putting away toys etc). I can also spend time cuddling, playing with or being in the company of the animal if they require, or steer clear of them and just make sure they are okay if that is what they would prefer. - I am also happy to check your mail, water your plants, check the security of the property and any other small jobs you may need to be done while you are away.
Dog Training: -I am able to train to almost any degree. From puppy lessons, socialisation, foundational training, reactivity all the way up to training assistance dogs and rescue rehabilitation. -I have years of experience in the training industry and with hard work, consistency and time, I can make your dog the best it can be. -My training focuses on Positive Reinforcement, so not only will the training be working toward improvement t of behaviour, but also creating a solid connection between the two of you and improving the life you have together.
I am more than happy to discuss with you the needs of your pet and for you to ask me any and all questions. ...
