I have been surrounded by dogs since I was very little, I even shared to my preschool class that I want "to be a dog when I grow up."
My 10+ years of experience includes local dog walking and dog sitting, volunteering and working for rescues and shelters, and interning with a canine behaviorist. I am currently working with International Dog Training School in the Gold Coast as an assistant trainer while completing their instructor's course. I know a lot about canine behavior, and can pick up on cues, allowing me to prevent, avoid, or redirect any situation.
I recently moved to Australia from the United States, where I worked through Rover.com (the US equivalent to MadPaws) for a short time dog sitting, walking, and training.
When with my clients, I love to play- in addition to walk- with them because my goal is to establish a relationship and bond based on trust and respect. I update owners on any positive and negative behavior, as well as providing suggestions to help understand and take care of certain behaviors.
I am continuing my education into canine behavior, as I am always looking to learn more. You could categorize me as a "crazy dog lady." All services (daycare, overnight, etc.) will happen at your home- as it will allow the dog to be in a familiar environment and to feel more secure....
