About Veronica
I have been a dog owner all my life, from working farm dogs to fluffy little ankle biters. I have been a foster carer for over 7 months volunteering time to help animal rescues rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome neglected or surrendered dogs and have spent many, many, many, hours helping owners troubleshoot and continue to integrate their pooches into their families.

I'm in it for the animals. They need the love and respect that would be given to any child while providing the stability of energy and environment to keep them happy and safe. My home is scattered with foam cuts for lounging around when the sofa is full, with a large dog door fitted to enable temperature control inside without limiting access to run around in the yard outside. The downstairs floors are tiled to make for easy cleanups of any accidents, and there are no stairs in or out of the home for those that have mobility issues. I even have several areas set up as a chill zone for those who have anxiety and want to be alone.

I am a full-time Doggy Day Care operator and a Canine Behaviourist and Trainer. Any activity that would not permit me taking all dogs with me, is limited to outside business hours so your loved ones are always with company and all interactions are monitored for your pets safety and learning.

Veronica's knowledge of dogs and their behaviors is phenomenal. I feel so lucky to have found her. My 2 Chihuahuas absolutely LOVED their 9 night stay with her. I have 100% trust in all that she does.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of our not-so-little Groucho Barx - I couldn't be happier - thank you!

Veronica was amazing with our very energetic fur baby. She was certainly very well looked after and will miss the tummy rubs 😊 thank you so much
