My name is Elena and I love working with all animals, especially dogs.
I am originally from Italy and have been in Melbourne for 7 years and have been working professionally with dogs for 2 years. I used to mind dogs back home for several years, I also have training experience in agility competition which I participated in whilst in Italy. I have experience with all different types of dogs and other animals and I would love to provide all the love and care your fur babies need while you are away on work or holidays.
Currently I am a professional, full time dog walker and the opportunity is there to include your dog in my daily walking routines with other dogs or dog groups if you would like. I visit clients houses and walk several dogs each day, and including your dogs (If you would like).
Dog walks can range from 30 minutes to any time requested by the client, and as often as your dog requires.
I can care for up to 2 dogs at a time full time and also have space to include them in my daily dog walking requirements.
Training: Basic Etiquette, obedience and safe socialisation with other animals.
Medication: Can administer and care for special needs dogs
My home:1 Bedroom apartment in St. Kilda
Small enclosed balcony
Near beach and other local
Live alone with no pets
Dogs can sleep anywhere in the apartment that they feel safe (e.g. Couch, Bed, floor etc..)
My available hours:
Available Mon – Fri for Adventure day(day care)for fully socialised dogs only,your dog will be out in several different parks for the all day,so this service is a bit more expensive then a normal Day care, I can't offer Adventure day for a not socialised dog.
Available 7 days a week for boarding and any other services out of hours
Dog Boarding: full time contact during the working hours, and no more than 2 hours alone at any other time if your dog can't be left alone for more than that.
Dog Day-care: full time contact during the working hours, including out of hours
I have fostered and rescued animals in the past and have experience with difficult and untrained dogs as well. I am double vaccinated and adhere to all the guidelines and happy to accommodate to any specific requirements you may have.
If you would like to learn a bit more about myself or experience, please don't hesitate to contact me.
