About Shelley

I’m an animal professional; I’ve been working with animals since 2012. My career in the animal industry began as a cattery attendant at one of Perth’s largest cat shelters. Later I ran a successful dog walking and pet sitting business, for 2 years dog walking was my full time job! I walked all kinds of dogs! From an 8 week old cavoodle, to an 18 year old pug. From chihuahuas to Great Danes. Pullers, jumpers, medicated dogs, anxious dogs; I can look after them all!

I’m now a professional dog trainer teaching owners how to train and care for their dogs both one-on-one and in puppy classes.

I incorporate training into all my walks and can help reinforce your training goals.

I also adore cats, being a cat owner and a kitten foster carer. I have a great understanding for and affinity with all cats! I can even teach them tricks if you like!

I’ve completed a Certificate II in Animal Studies, have done pet first aid training, and have almost completed one of the most intensive dog training courses offered in Australia. I follow a force-free, rewards based philosophy so will never use fear, pain or intimidation with your beloved pets.

My dog walks are for 30-45 minutes each. I find this amount of time to be ideal for most dogs, especially because I will practice their training on the walks which makes them 'brain tired'. I'll collect them up from your house and walk them from there in the local area. We can practice leash walking, play games, go jogging, and spend time off leash if there is an appropriate place to do so (and I deem it safe!).

Home visits are also for 30-45 minutes, and include may include: feeding, litter changes, play time, snuggles, and brushing. I'm also happy to water plants (although cannot guarentee their condition, I'm an expert in pets not plants), bring in the mail, take out the bins, etc. These are idea for cats, rabbits and other pocket pets! I've sat for rabbits and parrots in the past.
