About Joyce
Get to know me: Fellow animal lovers may understand this - you can't just walk past a dog (or heck, any domestic pet!) without petting them. That's me. Volunteering at dog shelters and multiple RSPCA events, I've seen the detrimental effects of how uninformed dog training/inconsistent human leadership/lack of exercise etc. affect dogs - and their humans - who don't know better. To me, it's not pointing a finger to blame but rather an urgent call for other fellow dog owners to come in and help. To know that I'm helping someone out and keeping their fluffy floofs happy and healthy absolutely makes my day.

$20-25 : Dog minding AND/OR exercising
$15 : Simple obedience training/performance tricks to maintain dog's mental stimulation for healthy development
FREE: Basic dog grooming (brushing its coat, face/feet/coat trimming, cleaning ears)
$15 - Negotiated: All other requirements (body wash, trimming dog's bottom and surrounding areas, nails etc.)

I'm based in Lane Cove, and can travel across all Lower North Shore areas (Chatswood, St Leonards, Artarmon, Willoughby, Castlecrag, Northbridge etc.). If not accessible by trains I would like to be reimbursed with my cost of travel ($4.5 for bus rides and/or cost of taxi fare in receipt if taxi is required).

About my experience being around dogs
Being with 3 family dogs (Tibetan spaniel, Cavoodle and Tibelier), I truly understand how important it is for your furry babies to have human interaction and more importantly, exercising when their humans are off to work to provide for the house and them. Being around dogs varying in sizes and original breeding purposes lets me understand different dog personalities and hence their needs. For example, my Tibetan spaniel may seem aloof and independent compared to my Cavoodle - yet the Cavoodle may be more excitable and have higher tendencies of neuroticism compared to the calm, gentle and dependent Tibelier. I understand the importance of treating dogs as little individuals of their own - so hopefully having this understanding can help you feel comfortable and confident with my approach on dogs :)

Please email or call 0433 423 619 to enquire.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon - and of course meeting your beloved pooch(es)!
