About Michele

We are a family of three - my 13 year old Toy Poodle Bodeen, my extremely regal long-haired cat Zoe, and me. As I work from home, it's rare that my pets are lonely or anxious as they have been used to company, lots of love, and attention.

We moved up to Brisbane in May 2017, after 27 years in Sydney. My late husband and I spent several years in NSW offering a boutique boarding service for small dogs. It was just the best time. My husband was a genius with animals and thankfully passed on many of his training and communication techniques for getting the best out of animal communication with humans. I have also been blessed to have learnt much from attending many trainings

as well as having a very skilled daughter in law who is a wonderful dog trainer residing in Mudgee

I would be delighted to come and visit your fur baby or babies while you are away on holidays or at work. I am comfortable around all breeds of dogs and cats and have no fear of large dogs as I have past experience with Am Staff, Mastiff, and German Shepherd clients. I have been honoured to have so many wonderful testimonials from clients whose animals have blessed my life. I hope I can meet yours.

Michele was wonderful with our pets and kept us in the loop the whole time we were away. She even sent us photos of the pets everyday which made us feel more relaxed about being away from them. We would definitely recommend using Michele and look forward to booking her again in the future. Thank you Michele!

Absolutely 100 %happy with Michele.

Would totally recommend! We will definitely be using Michele again when we travel and now we will be travelling more knowing that we have an excellent carer that we can rely on.

Communication was excellent and we loved getting our daily photos of our pets. She is just so caring and we could rest easy while we were away. Thanks Michele!

We have loved animals all our lives and have been blessed to have them as companions and friends. My husband grew up with big and small dogs, used to train horses, and worked with exotic circus animals - he used to own a lion! Together for over 30 years, we have mostly rescued our fur babies and been delighted to give them a home. We have always had an affinity with dogs and cats and consider them great teachers. Bodeen was trained by Ali and his team from Guard Dog Training Centre, Berkshire Park, Sydney NSW - keeping his training on track and having daily walks is paramount to me. So we both know quite a bit about dogs and cats, so you can rest easy.

I am a certified Master Hypnotherapist, NLP Trainer and Master Coach - I am also Reiki Level 1 trained. My husband is a University Qualified Counsellor. I have had great success using my Reiki skills on various pets belonging to friends.

I specialise in coaching one on one using the client's relationship with their animal as an indicator of what needs changing in the life of that owner. It benefits the dog and it refocuses the client. Intrigued?
