About Sophie
I am a university student with a huge love for animals

I have lots of experience working with all kinds of dogs, big and small, having volunteered at an animal shelter and vet clinic. In doing so I have learnt many animal handling techniques and have received basic behaviour training including reading animal body language, teaching dogs to walk proficiently on a lead and dealing with mild behavioural issues.

I have some veterinary nurse knowledge, having studied for over 6 months at the Australian college of veterinary nursing and completing some workplace experience. Although I didn't complete the course, it gave me lots of animal care and handling knowledge and skills. I also have experience administering medications including through subcutaneous injection.

I am a huge animal lover and own three dogs myself as well as various reptiles.
I promise to give your pets the love and care I would give my own!

Although I am mostly experienced with dogs, I am happy and comfortable caring for all kinds of animals including cats and pocket pets.

I can also offer basic grooming services when visiting your pet such as nail clipping, brushing and bathing for a small extra cost. just let me know when booking if this is something you would like.

I available most days of the week for dog sitting, walking or caring for pets overnight!

House Visiting - May 6, 2021
Our dogs Georgie and Max love Sophie and I feel very relaxed with her as our drop-in visitor. She is prompt, reliable and is great with communication. I would recommend Sophie without reservation.
