OUTDOOR TRIPS EXPLAINED:

          At a minimum, I take dogs to various fenced off-leash dog parks so they can run and burn energy fast. I also walk dogs on different nature walking trails to give dogs more variety. And if the dogs have good recall, I take them for off-leash walks along the beach. My ultimate goal is to keep dogs calm, content and happy at home by giving them adequate exercise outdoors.

ON DOG SOCIALISATION:

          Dogs will share their space with other dogs in some way, whether it's in my home, car, at the dog park, or when passing other dogs during walks. Because of this, I can only take non-reactive dogs who can share a space with other dogs. Since all dogs are unique, I use my familiarity with different dog parks and walking trails to determine which ones will suit the dog's personality.

ON DOG TRAINING:

          I am not a dog trainer, but I use elements of dog training to communicate with dogs. I only use 4 basic commands: "come", "sit", "stay" and "leave it". If a dog understands more commands, then I will gladly practice it. Dogs do not need to be perfectly trained, but they need some level of good dog manners. I always reward good behaviour, I can be firm if necessary, and I avoid using force unless it is a safety issue. Unfortunately, I won't be able to handle serious behaviour issues or reactive dogs.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES:

          I will require an emergency contact and the preferred vet clinic. If a vet visit is needed, I will request for the insurance excess or vet fee to be deposited to my account before proceeding. To this date, I have yet to require vet services for any of my guest dogs because I try to be selective of the dogs I board together. Nevertheless, I am prepared for such an emergency. 

** Feel free to message me if you have any further questions. And if you feel that we might be a good match, then let's have a meet & greet!

Doggy Day Care
Melissa, 2024-03-26

What has been most impressive is Wimpy's ability to navigate the needs of each dog. My Coco is a Parti Poodle and is mostly well behaved but since a little snuffle at the park, where she was overpowered by the bigger dogs, she has been a little hesitant to be free at the park. Wimpy is gently reintroducing her.

Dog Boarding
Erin, 2024-02-13

Wimpy accepted my booking with short notice (a couple of days before the date) for me which was a lifesaver given I was travelling with my dog from out of town. He’s so caring and gentle with dogs, and I was kept up to date the entire stay with lots of happy photos of the walks and naps my dog had.

I’d use him again before finding another pet sitter in Adelaide and would highly recommend to other dog owners. He clearly loves dogs and wants them to be happy at all times. Thanks Wimpy.
