About Bernadette

Hello

I'm a mature single who has so much love for pets and it breaks my heart that my living situation doesn't allow me currently to have my own.

I've owned dogs all my life, both large and small, starting with George the Labrador who saved my life (literally) as a child, Nina who we adopted from the RSPCA, Theo my beloved Maltese Shitsu and Jett & Karli the purebred German Shepherds.

I have extensive experience of fostering litters of puppies and individual adult dogs from the YAPS animal shelter in Cairns, QLD and am happy to provide references from the Director of this facility attesting to my skills with caring for young dogs. Having taken care of dogs with conditions such as parvo virus, worm infestations, post-surgery, those with spinal conditions and arthritis I am able to tailor my care to the needs of your dogs and the delivery of any medication that may be required.

I'm comfortable with dogs of all sizes and whether they be purebred dogs or the complete opposite I believe that they all are loveable characters.

Dogs with behavioural problems are no issue as mentioned previously I have adopted dogs of my own, along with my experience working with the animal shelter.

Exercising of dogs, socialising dogs, basic training, feeding and providing the love and attention that your pets deserve are my absolute passions and whilst I am unable to board them in my home I will visit them faithfully and take care of them as if they were my own. Providing daily photos and videos would furthermore be my pleasure as I know the reassurance this can bring when you are away from your beloved pet.

Bernadette was amazing when she looked after our dog, Hunter. She sent me daily updates and ensured that he was happy and cared for whilst we were away. I wouldn't hesitate to book with Bernadette again!
