About Budgie

My profession as an animal trainer involves enriching and caring for marine mammals. My playful sea lions are currently stars of the Seal Guardians show at Sea World.

Many of the training techniques are applied at home with my gentle and good natured Border Collie, Pepper. She enjoys regular trips to the dog park and beach, interactive toys and puzzles in the garden, and lots of exercise and games.

I’d love the opportunity to share these fun canine activities with your pet. Interacting your pooch with another four legged companion is essential for their social needs. They also have the choice of indoor and outdoor snug sleep areas, including my couch cuddles!

With past experience tending to rescue pets at Animal Welfare League, I can also administer prescribed medication if needed.

My whole life, I’ve been involved in pet ownership. The experience gained from rearing numerous domestic and exotic animals has fostered my passion to shelter, care for, and learn more about them while enjoying their company.

Whether it be pet hosting, home visits or dog walking, I can ensure that your beloved pet will be showered with copious amounts of affection, as well as enriching physical and mental stimulation in my care. And you’ll be able to see it all by receiving numerous photo updates while you’re apart from them!

Dog Boarding
Wendy, 2019-01-30

Our Kelpie, Lily, came back from her holiday with Budgie and Pepper as happy and healthy as when we dropped her off. Budgie says Pepper and Lily had a great time and were great friends. We appreciated the only one doggy guest at a time as I felt this would be less overwhelming for Lily it being her first time away. Budgie sent lots of pics of Lily having a great time in the outdoors- her favourite place and being comfortable in her house. Thank you Budgie and Pepper!!

Thank you Budgie for accepting my last minute request for home boarding service for our baby dog Summer.

Budgie has been really great and took care of Summer like her very own pet and sent us lots of pictures daily making sure we don’t get too worried about Summer’s well being while she was away from us.

I would totally recommend Budgie to others.

Thank you.
