About Thelma
I love dogs and believe they are very intelligent and intuitive animals. I know how hard it is to leave your dog behind when you go away and do not want to put them into kennels. Dogs love their humans and when they are away from you they can get anxious, which is why I know the importance of dog sitting, dog and dog walking.

When I am walking your dog, you can be sure that they will have lots of fun. I have grown up with dogs and I understand their different breeds. My very first dog I cared for is a Rottweiler with a lot of personality. I learnt so much about this breed such as it's protective nature and curiosity, it's loyalty and her need for cuddles (which I loved). I have a great understanding of how to care for dogs in a calm and playful way. I find the best way to get to know a dog is by taking them for a walk.
My love for the outdoors and dogs has lead me to work with dogs. Taking care of your pet comes with huge responsibility and I will make sure to get specific instructions on how you would like your pet cared for and I understand that every situation and family member is different.

The overnight service I provide includes:

*My stays are usually from afternoon between 4:00- 5:00 pm start on the day (unless requested to arrive earlier)  9:00 am-12:00 pm departing time (unless requested to stay longer).

I understand that clients have different times they leave and come home, so I am flexible with these times and happy to accommodate where I can. This may incur an extra fee.

• My stay includes walking every day, spending quality time together and caring for their needs (feeding, playing and loving them etc..).

• I will be in and out of the house and there will be times when the dogs will be home alone for several hours during the day.

• In the afternoon and at night I will be with your pets and I will do my absolute best to keep their routine.

•Your dogs will be walked every day.

• I will leave your home clean and tidy.

• I will update you frequently on how your pets are going.

Please feel free to request daily updates. I know it can be a stressful time for you and your pets, and I would like to keep you informed to relieve any stress.

• Other services that you may want to request include, collecting your mail, watering your garden and indoor plants.

If you would like me to undertake any other task/jobs around the house, please feel free to ask and we can discuss further.

I will treat your pets with love and care and as though they are my own.

**Please note, I do travel outside of Albury- Wodonga and if you do not live within 20km the Albury/Wodonga area the price will increase. Please contact me for a quote.

**I would be more than happy to send you a quote for any bookings. I can send you a detailed quote with prices if you have different types of pets (i.e dog, cats, chooks, guinea pigs and rabbits). Or you may live outside of Albury-Wodonga, you have more than two pets and you would like a quote before you book.

Thelma was absolutely amazing with our two boys. One is a rescue dog that comes with anxiety and quirks and the other is a boisterous pup that has no idea how big he is. She handled everything with professionalism and confidence.

Thelma was great with our dog Jasper while we were away. She was attentive, reliable and made Jaspers daily walk as enjoyable as possible. The updates and photos that she sent through were an extra bonus. Would highly recommend Thelma.

Thelma is a true dog person who is mindful and very considerate of what my Khaos was going through being in a strang place with strangers around him. I would not hesitate in letting Thelma sit Khaos again and I think he would be pleased to see her again.
