About Kristen
Hi I am Kristen,
It is a pleasure to get to know your dog and enrich its life with its favourite pastimes whether that is walking, running, sniffing, training or play.
I specialise in Canine Adventure Walks through our local bushland taking in all of the sights and smells to enrich your dogs life physically and mentally.
I enjoy running in my spare time and have completed marathons so have plenty of energy to keep up with the bounciest of dogs. I have experience with large breeds as well as challenging behaviors. I am an Ex. Detector Dog Handler currently working casually as an Animal Attendant at the Animal Holding Facility and I would love to look after your pet. I am finding Mad Paws to be a great way to use my skills while my children are at school and have a great work/life balance. I have over 20 years experience in dog training and animal care. I have TAFE qualifications in Animal Science, Dog and Cat Behaviour Modification and Animal Attending.
I am confident with all breeds and sizes as well as medications. My services include Pet Sitting, Grooming and Dog Walking. I have a professional warm hydrobath for a deep clean that helps with shedding and muscle soreness.
I would love to look after your pet in the comfort of its own home. I provide an sms or messenger photo diary to keep you updated on the daily activities when walking or pet sitting.
I also have experience with small animals and reptiles so please message me to discuss your specific needs :)
Areas serviced are roughly 5km radius of Winston Hills.
*Public Holiday surcharge of $15 per visit.
