About Vanessa
I have always being a great animal lover, dogs and horses are my biggest loves! I enjoy taking care of small to medium sized dogs, as I have this duo at home! Our home has a large secure yard that has great views, we back onto road reserve and then Daisy Hill Forest so there are endless walks and swimming destinations close to home that I take my dogs on daily. The dog park is a 5 minute walk from home and is also visited regularly, as is the beach! I feel Shailer Park is doggie holiday heaven. If your dog is good off leash and with horses, I will let them off lead at the 6 acre horse paddock as they love to have a play and swim with each other. If not they will stay safe and secure on lead or at home if they aren't comfortable. I usually walk/ exercise on average about 5-10 km a day mixing it up with hills, swimming, flat walk/ jogs, games and just social dog park visits/ beach.

My vision is to offer adventure holidays to dogs as they just love being in the outdoors and getting active! I have had great success caring for equine clients dogs whilst they have being away and when I go to massage the horses at their home! The dogs always want to come for another adventure holiday.

At home the dogs hang in the garden, on the large enclosed deck and in the house! Your dog will become part of our fur family and will enjoy lots of daily excursions, attention and fun times. I spend around 5 minutes a day doing some dog training and positive reinforcement work so yours is quite welcome to join in the fun too.

I am a equine and canine myofunctional therapist (Bodywork and massage), specialising in relieving aches and pains/ rehab from injury etc. During your stay you are welcome to book your dog in for a session at a discounted rate as I will not have to travel. I am confident administering any medication holistic or veterinary and believe in a healthy wholesome diet for dogs. If you would like any advice on nutrition/ strengthening exercises I am more than happy to share this.

I used to breed Australian cattle dogs and I ended keeping one of the pups from my last litter as she was somewhat of a runt and very very special to me . A change is circumstance meant that I had to reduce my number of dogs as I had 4 at the time . I gave my little Womble to Vanessa without any hesitation what so ever . There could not have been a better home for her anywhere on the planet . Exercise is inevitable with Vanessa which is a must for a ball of energy like Womble . Womble has thrived in her care and has grown from a timid wary dog to a confident sociable loving life pooch . Vanessa loves animals and loves her dogs and they love her back .
