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: $200 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: 100 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: $100 per dog ($25 additional for 2nd dog. No additional payment if you have more doggies).

HOME VISITS:

If you are going away for 2 or 3 days, I will visit your dog/cat, 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 ($20 per additional dog)

- 2 Full Hours: It includes 1 hour walk for your dog, and sniffing and brain games at home. Cost: $80 per dog ($40 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 (solo walk)
10 Walks (10 full hours): $750 (solo walk). BONUS: 1 Free Walk

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.

Monica is caring, experienced & professional. She gave our pup Herbie a fun & stimulating experience with brain games, exercise & down time to relax. Monica also made us feel at ease sending pics of Herbie’s day of activities. Highly recommend Monica!
