About Gemma

Welcome !

Stressed about finding a fit dog walker/jogger/runner that can keep up with your furbaby?

Got a rescue or reactive dog that you worry a professional will refuse to walk?

Worried about your dog not getting adequate exercise?

Need a helping hand?

*** POLICE CHECKED ***

My name is Gemma and I am based in Perth's northern suburbs. I come with a lifetime of experience walking dogs and professionally began in 2017. Since then, I have become renowned for providing a tailored individual walking service for your beloved furbabies. I assess your dog's needs by regularly communicating with you as we progress through the journey together, adjusting my service where needed to ensure we continually reach the best result possible.

The consistent 5 star reviews speaks for themselves (available on another similar website platform, unfortunately, prohibited from linking or mentioning on here), due to my persistent dedication to every animal I take care of. I am passionate about providing top-quality service to every owner and client, and welcome regular communication throughout the process.

I offer:

1-on-1 (or however many dogs you have!) dog walks/jogs/runs with a results-based approach: time and intensity varies depending on your dog's individual needs, max 45mins

Rescue and reactive dogs welcome

"Excursions" to local dog beaches, dog parks, dog-friendly reserves to keep them engaged, depending on your dog's capabilities

COVID-19 hygiene & distance standards implemented at all times

Licensed, safe transportation if your dogs need to go to the vet, or anywhere at all

Daily updates GUARANTEED with photos (where possible)

Special requests for your furbabies

Consistently empathetical treatment of all animals, treating your dog as family is naturally guaranteed

Usually, in-home visits are offered to other types of pets and low-maintenance dogs when you are away on holiday, but in these times holidays are non-existent.

Once isolation rules are relaxed this service is still offered as per usual.

I am "living the dream" in life. When you do what you love, it shows in everything you do. I promise you will not be disappointed, or your money back

GUARANTEED. If you have reactive or rescue dogs, never fear! I am happy to walk the "scary" ones other professionals may refuse. This is due to my own experience with my reactive rescue dog Zaria, and growing up around restricted breeds.

Please note, if your dog does attack me, I will request you seek a qualified Animal Behaviourist and must cease walks until the behaviourist states an improvement has been made. I am in regular communication with a highly popular qualified behaviourist and am happy to refer your dog along. I will not report your dog to the council in the worst-case scenario: I am a strong believer in rehabilitation. To date, I have never been attacked by a dog in my life (touch wood!), and I've been around some considerably "dangerous" ones.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or special requests :)

Gemma is amazing, and my doggie gets so excited when she arrives! He can be a little bit ... anxious ... around other dogs so it’s nice to have a walker who understands and gives him the time and space to have a good time.
