About Monica
DOES YOUR DOG NEED ''SPECIAL CARE''?. IS HE SHY, NERVOUS, RESCUE, OR REACTIVE?. I would love to work with your dog. Please, read our services 👇

Our services:

PET DAY CARE:

- FULL DAY (8 hours): I will pick up your dog (up to 4 dogs in total) and take him for a day out. It includes bush walks and, sniffing/brain games, and pick up and drop off. Cost: $125 per dog ($25 per additional dog. Up to 4 dogs in total).

- HALF A DAY (4 hours): I will pick up your dog (up to 4 dogs in total) and take him for a day out. It includes bush walks and, dog training (fundamentals), sniffing/brain games, and pick up and drop off. Cost: 75 per dog ($25 per additional dog. Up to 4 dogs in total).

PET SITTING:

This is a very good option if your dog gets a bit shy/anxious in new places. I will stay at your place and take care of your dog/cat (plants, mail, bins, etc. included). You will have a very relaxed, optimistic, and happy dog.

It includes a visit to the dog park or a bush walk every day, and sniffing and brain games at home. Cost: $75 per dog ($25 per additional dog. Up to 4 dogs in total).

HOME VISITS:

This is a good option if your dog feels at ease being by himself and you are going away for 2 or 3 days at the most. I will visit your dog, stay with him, check he is fine and make sure he has physical and mental activities every day. You will have a very relaxed, optimistic, and happy dog. I will also take care of your plants, mail, bins, if required at no extra charge.

- 1 Full Hour: It includes a courtesy 20 minute walk for your dog, and sniffing and brain games at home. Cost: $40 per dog ($15 per additional dog. Up to 2 dogs in total).

- 2 Full Hours: It includes 1 hour walk for your dog, and sniffing and brain games at home. Cost: $75 per dog ($15 per additional dog. Up to 4 dogs in total).

SPECIALIZED DOG WALKING:

If your dog pulls, barks/lunges at people or other dogs, or gets scared of the world, then he needs an specialized dog walker. As a dog trainer, I love walking these dogs because I can teach them gently that the world is a good place and they can enjoy it, and prepare them better for unexpected things. You will have a very relaxed, optimistic, and happy dog.

It includes ‘’Walking on lead’’ training, ‘’Travelling in the car’’ training, ‘’Crate’’ training, and sniffing/brain games, and pick up and drop off.

1 Full Hour: $75 per dog
5 Walks (5 full hours): $375 per dog (BONUS: 1 Free Walk)
10 Walks (10 full hours): $750 per dog (BONUS: 2 Free Walks)

DOG TRAINING:

1st Training Session: Cost: $200
It includes 1 hour consultation, 1 hour training, dog training e-book, educational posters and PDFs. We always recommend you buy a ‘’Dog Training Program’’ because just one training session will not change your dog’s behaviour. Your dog needs consistency and you need someone to guide you.

ALL SERVICES INCLUDE A FREE ‘’MEET AND GREET’’ to know each other, talk about your needs and your dog’s needs, and I see what’s best for you and your dog.

Thanks for keeping our kitties entertained

Pet Sitting - Mar 14, 2021
Monica was amazing with our 2 dogs. Especially with our little one who doesn’t like new people, she didn’t force anything with him and kept him at ease. Monica was in our home for 2 nights and we felt completely at ease. The house was taken care of, we were sent tonnes of photos and videos of the dogs and they were entertained with games and training the whole time. Will use Monica again 100%
