About Carla

I have completed the COVID-19 infection control course. So during these unsettling times you can be assured I am taking all the necessary precautions.

I have always been a dog lover. I have had dogs all my life. We have 5 year old Border Collie called Milly. She is wonderful with other dogs and really enjoys their company. She is very gentle and has been great with young pups to even the more senior dogs.

I am currently studying and working on setting up my own Canine Bowen Therapy business from home. So your baby would always have company and treated as part of our family.

I am a very active person. I love nothing better than going to the park with Milly and taking her for walks. I will look after your baby as I would mine. They would get lots of cuddles and attention :) You can enjoy your holiday knowing your furbaby is well cared for while they are having a fun doggie holiday! I will send you pictures and updates.

I have over 30 years of experience with dogs. When I lived in Broome I worked as a vet nurse. I did some basic dog grooming and ran the puppy training classes there also. I'm also a qualified horse riding instructer and did all my exams in animal care and yard management. I have also competed at the highest level in dog agility and gone to lots of obedience classes with my previous dogs and Milly.

Im currently studying Canine Bowen Therapy which is a gentle, yet powerful myofascial technique that works with the muscles, connective tissues and nervous system of the dog to activate healing in the body and give substantial relief from a wide range of specific injuries and health issues. I am very passionate about dogs. I am constantly researching to update my knowledge. I’m passionate about Canine behaviour and training techniques.

We love the outdoors and going for lots of walks in our local parks, beach and out in the bush. We have a fully fenced back yard. Which is part undercover. Your dog will be both inside and out. Usually beside me!

Please ensure your dog is fully vaccinated and up to date with worming and flea treatments. I don’t except any dogs that dig or show signs of aggression.

I am happy to do a meet and greet at my house so you can see where your baby will be staying.

Please book once you are happy with everything to ensure you get your dates as they book up quickly!

Any questions don't hesitate to contact me and I hope to look after your fur baby as our own! Carla, Jarred and Milly 🐾

Carla was so organized and professional and my two dogs thoroughly enjoyed their stay!

Would recommend to anyone and will definitely re-booking. Carla (and Milly!) are so kind and patient with my two crazy pups, such a great experience.
