About Joanna
I am an absolute animal lover. I’ve had pet dogs since I was little. I've volunteered and fundraised for animal shelters throughout uni and have fostered various breeds of furry friends for a canine rescue group. I have a legal/pharmacy background, so I’m happy to administer medication should your dog have special care requirements. I've also learnt a lot throughout the year from puppy school/obedience school/behavioural podcasts etc with my current pup Violet and can help with positive reinforcement training. It's also helped me understand dog body language/behaviours to better understand how your dog is feeling. I’ve had experience looking after other friends pets too and can appreciate every breeds quirks and hilarious personalities.

Rest assured that your pet will be in safe hands and spoilt rotten, cuddled and relaxed, so that you can enjoy your holiday with peace of mind. Your dog will be on holiday too at their home away from home. They will be treated like a family member. I will send daily photo updates of your fur baby. I live in close proximity to a local dog park and can take them for walks around the neighbourhood walking tracks. Your dog will have a basket of toys to choose from on their own accord during playtime. My services include a semi-structured routine of: morning toilet break, play time, morning meal time, nap time, potty break, afternoon nose work games/mental enrichment activities, afternoon walk, nap time, dinner and more play/snooze time depending on your pup, followed by one last potty break before bedtime. Of course, I’m always happy to accommodate your dog’s regular routine if they are adverse to change. Please note that daycare charges may apply for overnight guests if late afternoon pickups are requested, but I'll aim to be as flexible as possible :)

Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. Can't wait to bond with your furry family members :)
