About Dawn
Hi there I have over 20 years of experience working with dogs in a training and caring capacity.
I run a dog walking group for people with special needs who own dogs i help the owners with training, behavioural issues and the health of their companion animals.
I am familiar with a huge variety of dog breeds and so am aware of health and personality types for the various breeds.
I own an Australian Cattle dog myself, a smart working dog breed my dog has taught me a lot about what she needs (please note, when house sitting I do not bring my dog, so that I am fully committed to your dog).
When dog walking I can do lovely bayside bush walks and beach swims with the dogs, specialising in training dogs to swim and build confidence in the water if they're not naturally inclined to swim. I like to give a tailor made experience focusing on the needs of individual dogs. I believe in giving dogs a variety of exercise, mental stimulation and socialisation.
I am also very interested in canine diets and how diet can help with any health issues.
As your personal dog walker I am only too happy to share my knowledge and what I've learned over the years!
Please note that I also offer a dog wash service which I'm offering at a very competitive rate when either as a stand alone service or bundled in with my other services. :)
P.S I paint portraits of animals, please see my photo section for pics of my paintings should you like your pet painted. :)

Dawn is amazing with dogs! Howard - one of our two dogs - was visibly sad when she left. We felt completely safe leaving our boys and our home in her hands. A+
