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 is an absolute treasure! She stayed at our home and cared for our 2 German Shepherds and elusive cat. She sent us photos over the weekend of two smiley dogs obviously enjoying Bonnies company. Bonnies fun, gentle, caring nature and natural ability with animals is obvious and she quickly established a friendship with our crazy puppy and anxious girl and we were able to enjoy our weekend assured they were in very capable hands. Our home and pets were very well cared for. I highly recommend Bonnie and will be asking her to care for our pets again.
Bonnie is wonderful! She came to the rescue with short notice to help us with adjusting our puppy to being alone at home. She also gave us lots of tips and advice with our training. We will also be considering Bonnie to look after our puppy if we are away for longer periods. Thank you Bonnie, we are so grateful to have met you!
