I'm Bonnie. I was a teacher in Queensland and moved to Canberra because I was offered a really wonderful opportunity to play music every day in the Band of the Royal Military College, Duntroon.
I love all animals and dogs are my favourite. Their enthusiastic greeting after a short trip to the shops, a day at work, or an extended time away from home is just magic! My experience in dog training and obedience has been with my own medium to large dogs over the past 20 years and also recently assisting walking and training other people's dogs.
As a child and young adult, I also owned and cared for a variety of other animals including chooks, mice, guinea pigs and parrots. Since moving to Canberra I've also learned what lovely pets rabbits can be and have gained some experience in looking after them too.
I'd be more than happy to include some training during walks if requested. I'm available for house sitting, dog walking and home visits for dogs, cats, and other pets.
House Sitting: Pets are often happier in the familiar surroundings of their own home. A presence in the home also offers you peace of mind. I'm happy to collect mail, take bins in and out and water the garden too.
Dog Walking: I love walking dogs! I'm a very active person and happy to run with your dog too.
Home Visits: For those times when you may be away during the day for longer than usual or have a pet that may get lonely when left for longer periods. Walks, games and cuddles are the best medicine!
Bonnie was a fantastic sitter for our two labs. They had a great time with her & she was really good on keeping us updated on them while we were away.
We could not be happier with Bonnie! I am a big worrier and get nervous leaving our dogs because they are big girls and can be a handful. But with Bonnie looking after them I was able to fully enjoy my week away on holidays. She kept me updated at least once a day so I knew everything was ok and our girls were so happy in the videos and photos she sent that I knew they were being well looked after.
Bonnie left our house immaculate even changing the sheets on our bed for us as she knew we would be getting home late at night and she waited at the house with the girls for us to get home so she knew everything was ok.
I would not hesitate to recommend Bonnie to anyone wanting to have their pets and house looked after. We will certainly be regular customers! I am sure our girls will miss her!
