About Yani
'MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER DOG LOVER'

I prefer dogs to people so if I can give your pet a really engaging, fun, active day that'll make my day!

About me:

- I'm 24 and graduated in July 2019 with Distinction from my Business/Communications Bachelor degree. Dean's List student (top 15%).


- Have decided to follow my childhood dream of working with dogs, as they are my passion! Attended Pat Stuart's NePoPo by Bart Bellon dog training workshop in February. Avid Canine Paradigm podcast listener. Have self-studied Michael Ellis using his vast dog training and management DVDs.


- Enrolled to start National Dog Trainers Federation (NDTF) Cert 3 in Dog Behaviour and Training in April 2020 (the only nationally recognised dog trainers course).
Dog sitting/walking/training for Madpaws clients gives me a creative and professional outlet while I become fully vetted as a certified balanced dog trainer.


- RSPCA Wacol Animal Care Assistant. I volunteered in 2018. Cleaned kennels, fed/trained the 'basics', played with and walked small to large breed dogs with minimal obedience or manners.


- Plan to get into the Dog Sport world of IPO/IGP with my future working line GSD pup. This dog may not exist yet but I have a been researching/preparing for two years for this lifestyle commitment and have enjoyed using Madpaws to gain experience with pet and working breeds.


- Lots of experience dog sitting everything from Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, AmStaffs and Collie and Kelpie mixes, Weimaraners, to JRTs and Foxies, and the occasional sassy cat.


- Really active and love hiking, swimming, walking - is your dog bored at home today?


- My personal doggo was sixteen in 2018 (RIP sweet girl). I'm looking for pups keen to run with me, hike with me, go for iced latte trips with me...


- Always quick to answer Qs, always have my phone for snaps or if you need to ring, have my Honda Jazz decked out as a Dog Van with all the necessary dog gear (police leather leads, collars, harnesses, water and bowl, treats, poo bags, kong brand toys and a securely strapped-down travel crate for optimum dog transport safety).

Pet Sitting - Jul 4, 2020
Yani is a strong communicator and was very flexible in negotiating dates at initial contact. We came home to very happy and settled pets and the house was left in perfect condition.

Yani was fantastic with our 2 kelpies. She took them out on early walks as it was so hot and we arrived home to two very settled pups and a lovely clean house. I would definately recccommend Yani😊
