Hello, my name is Matthew!
I'm a childcare and support worker currently studying Community Services, and love spending my free time with my growing list of canine clients. I live in the Wollongong CBD with my partner who works full time in Finance, and although we have both grown up with a variety of pets, we are holding out on getting one of our own until we have a proper backyard!
We love all animals and have lots of experience caring for our canine friends, who are all different breeds, sizes, temperaments and energy levels - ranging from Dachshunds to Bull Terriers to Dobermans. We're yet to meet a dog we couldn't handle and enjoy working with large and powerful dogs too! We live a very active lifestyle and can't get enough of taking the dogs to the beach to run, play and swim in the ocean if they're game.
Although we don't have any professional qualifications in dog training (yet!), we love to get a deep understanding of your dogs personality, breed characteristics and their challenges so we can work with them to encourage and continue their progress. Matthew has endless patience and has supported a number of dogs with complex behavioural issues such as social and separation anxiety, barking/snapping and other compulsive behaviours. We always get lovely positive feedback from our families, and we like to return your dog tired, happy and clean :)
Our focus is mainly on pet sitting in your home (we can consider looking after them in our home if they are house trained), daily feeding/walking and doggie adventures, however I am very flexible so feel free to send me a message telling me what you're looking for and I'll see what we can do!
