I am an empathetic and down to earth local with a love of animals, learning and travels.
I grew up in the burbs but surrounded by animals, as a Fauna Rescue member we always had pets, wildlife, and loads of injured or abandoned animals to look after; I’ve raised reptiles, rodents, birds, marsupials, a couple of cats and a charming red kelpie. I went to an agricultural school but quickly realised I like animals too much to farm them.
My experiences over the years have led me to appreciate that even the most 'simple' creatures have an amazing complexity of drives and emotion. I have a natural (and university supplemented) curiosity and understanding of psychology so I love teaching dogs little tricks when they are in the right mood. I am also happy using the same positive reinforcement methods to try to curb barking, licking or other funny behaviors as it takes minimal time and effort while I'm there. I don't think anyone will ever have a complete understanding of cat psychology (!) so I can't guarantee they will learn any tricks, but I do know we will get along.
If your pet would like some extra adventures, don't hesitate to get in touch - I'd love to take them on the next one!
Note: My partner Lachy will sometimes come along for beach walks, etc. He is essentially the male version of my profile except for an additional love of guitar :) ...
