Hi there! My name is Gabby, I'm 25 and I've recently moved to Adelaide. I'm looking for new work and would love to find any work with animals. I've previously worked as a Dog Groomer for over 6 years and I've had about 1.5 years experience working with Dog Day-Care.
I love all animals and would feel comfortable caring for them in basically any way that you need! I'm happy to give you any references you require and I'm very flexible with days and hours. I'm currently living in Linden Park but I'm happy to travel reasonable distances for work so feel free to give me a call!
Re: Housing dogs in my own house I would only be able to have small breed dogs that are mostly used to living inside as I have two dogs at home already that live outside. My beagle can sometimes feel threatened by dogs that are larger than her and she tends to spend her time hiding in a corner of the yard being very sulky. My Shepherd X Kelpie is an absolute sweetheart but because he's not even a year old he can sometimes play too rough with dogs and try to play with them constantly. Because of this I would mostly (or always if preferred) keep the pup inside with me. As long as they are properly house-trained then they can sit on the couch with me (and maybe even sleep on the bed with me!).
Re: Dog Grooming. I can do general brushing, nails, bathing etc. on almost all pets. Full grooms however are only possible for me with small breeds. I have my own clippers, blades, scissors etc. but no grooming table / bath so if I was doing grooms at your house I would need to be able to use a table and also be able to bath your pup there. I have photo's I can send you of my work and also previous grooming Employers I can give you contact details for references! Grooming prices will vary depending on the size, style of haircut, coat condition and dog behaviour (I may have to charge more if the pup is particularly difficult i.e biting etc.).
Re: Dog Training. I haven't had any formal training but I have worked with animals and had pets all my life. So it would be only basic training and tricks that I could help you out with. Happy to help with training puppies!
