About Veronica
Cesar Millan said it best when he described how dogs are reflections of ourselves. My dogs not only helped me to rehabilitate to full recovery after an injury that ended my personal training career, but have made me a better person by helping me see when I've been anxious or unsure of myself and how to maintain the calm energy that a dog needs to feel safe and secure.

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 floors in the main areas are tiled to make for easy cleanups of any accidents, and there are no stairs for those that have mobility issues. I even have several rooms set up as a chill zone for those who have anxiety and want to be alone.

I am a stay at home house wife that has a love for all things health and fitness which extends to my four legged furry children, so I decided to combine my free time and my love of dogs and create a home away from home for your dogs. Any activity that would not permit me taking all dogs with me, is limited to weekends and after hours so your loved ones are always with company.

A typical day with me at Thumping Tails:

After arrival for day care, all dogs are free to play and run off some excess excitement for a couple of hours with me while I conduct my daily activities from cooking meal portions, to weeding the garden. After lunch at around 11am, we all go for a walk to the local cafe for some mental stimulation and training, which is usually when any additional dog walking sessions booked in will come join us. If the dog park is empty, we stop in for some off leash running around until around 2 or 3pm. Then home for a nap on the couch with me while I do my computer work or read a book until around 4pm, in time for another play before being picked up to go home.

My hours are usually 7am to 7pm, I am very flexible with times and any details that need to be tended to for your little ones, I completely understand that traffic can get hectic and trains run late and I am happy to work in with that for you at no extra cost. I interact with all animals during their entire stay and moniter all interaction between dogs to ensure that only positive, natural dog behaviour is passed on to any dogs with limited socialisation or the young.

Overnight stays or boarding includes the day time activities as well as feeding and sleeping in an environment customised as close to your normal routine as possible. If your pooch sleeps in your bedroom, they will sleep in mine. If they eat with other animals, they will eat with mine. I encourage only healthy, nurturing behaviour and interaction, and I am looking forward to making a time to meet with you and discuss in person how I can best tend to the needs of your four legged family members.
