About Alexandra
I have always been passionate about animals and caring for animals. I’ve had animals since I was a child including a cockatiel, Guinea Pig and fish. When I was 10 I got my first job as an animal carer and kid’s pony walker, this included caring for the ponies, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens etc. I have ridden horses since I was young and I am the proud owner of a horse, Dakota. I've trained animals for 3 years, starting with my own animals and then progressing to friend’s animals. Eventually that grew to training my friends, friend’s animals and so on. I’ve had experience with training multiple breeds of dogs, mainly including German Shepard, Staffordshire terrier, pit bull, King Charles Cavalier and keeshond. I have worked in different areas of the animal industry including a vet clinic, station work with sheep, training client’s animals and providing riding lessons as well as working with people and building their confidence with their animals. I have worked closely with behavioural problems in dogs as well as standard training with puppies and guiding owners with certain issues they might be facing.

I decided to further my knowledge and started studying animal studies through Tafe, I have almost finished my course and intend to continue studying animals and building my knowledge.

My animals live a happy and active lifestyle; my horse is kept on another property close to my house. The property owner has been a vet nurse for 30 years and I continue to learn a lot from her! My dog has access to a big backyard and plenty of toys, as well as access to inside when he pleases. He sleeps inside at night. My cat is kept inside with her luxury scratching station and the animals have their own couches to nap on when they please. We live next to a park where Cally spends a lot of his time, or the local dog park where he can play with his dog friends.

Your animals will be provided with a happy, positive and active lifestyle while they are cared for by me. I can guarantee you they will enjoy their time and you will be updated regularly regarding their well-being.

Cally and Squirt also enjoy the company of my partners German Shepard Rosie, whom we’ve had since she was a puppy and I have had the pleasure of training. Rosie lives with my partner but has become extremely close to my animals, including my horse. She has an extremely soft temperament and nature.

I am an honest, reliable person who is family oriented and lives with a family of animal lovers. I am a hard-working person and believe in doing my absolute best in anything I try, I have a can-do attitude and will always make sure that you’re requirements are being meet. I will go above and beyond for your animals and make sure that everyone is happy and relaxed and has a positive experience.
