My name is Lawrence and I am a final year veterinary student who is offering to walk your dog(s) around the Canada Bay/5 Dock area on some weekdays and weekends. Typically unless requested I will only walk dogs from one houshold as this will keep them less excited and often results in a better experience for your pet (especially if they are being transported in my car). I always strive to provide a high level of care to ensure you pet enjoys the experience and receives a good amount of excercise at the same time.
I have had alot of experience handling many different animals so there is no size or age requirment but am not intrested in walking dogs who are dog aggressive as that requires a very high amount of training and time to complete. However I am more than happy to walk dogs that have non-aggressive anxiety problems.
Initially I take first time pets on a walk only so they get comfortable with me and if being hired again I am more than happy to take your pet to parks, beaches (on lead only) and any other location they may enjoy (provided it is within a reasonable distance). I also have a four wheeled drive so your dogs will have a better experience being transported.
As a final veterinary student and a former veterinary nurse I have alot of experience with different breeds, ages (geriatrics especially) and ongoing diseases/conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis, exercise intolerance, cardiopulmonary conditions, diabetes, IBD etc.). Therefore you can rest easy that your pets specific needs are being fulfilled and they are being constantly assessed for stress, comfort and enjoyment!
I am also happy to perform training with your dogs (if they already have a training schedule) and physiotherapy especially if they are older.
I also use to work in the Australian reptile park so can provide reptile house checks, cage cleanings etc.
