Who am I? Hello :) My name is Sophie and I am an absolute animal lover with a dog and a cat of my own. I have worked with animals, particularly dogs for the past 10 years and am a Delta qualified dog trainer and behaviour consultant. I have worked as a vet nurse, worked with high drive working dogs, shelters and as a puppy class instructor. I currently work in local government helping and educating owners on dog safety and responsible pet ownership.
SO what do I offer? I am based in lane cove and am happy to offer dog walking and one on one training with your pet, pet sitting and house visits. Additionally to that i am happy to water the garden and pick up mail if your away :) Being a pet owner myself i love to see pictures of mine when i am away so i always send photos to the owners so they know their pets are being well looked after!
Work Ethic: I have experience looking after all different kinds of pets especially animals with medical conditions or behavioural issues. I am professional and reliable and will always ensure to keep your pet safe and well looked after. I understand many people work full time and arent always able to give the full attention your dog needs. I love to spend time with a variety of pets to ensure they are physically and mentally stimulated so when you get home they aren't going crazy for attention! I provide different forms of enrichment including DIY activities, puzzles, and games and help educate owners on what to provide if you need to leave your pet alone for a long period of time.
I highly recommend Sophie for looking after your pets. She's professional, knowledgeable, friendly and caring; most importantly Bella loved her day and was very happy in the photo Sophie sent me for reassurance during the day.
I have a degree in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience. I worked as a vet nurse at an Animal Shelter for 3 years where i gained experience in dog training, handling dogs of all different sizes and cats of all sizes and personalities! I am able to medicate dogs and cats and have experience with patients which may be a bit difficult to handle! :) I also have experience in grooming dogs and cats including clipping, bathing and nail clipping.
I am a qualifed dog trainer and behaviour consultant and love to help owners and their pets with any issues they might be having whether it is the excitement of a new puppy ora dog with more concerning problems which need addressing. I offer dog walking, pet sitting, medicating, grooming, house sitting, nail clipping, or even giving them a bath. I can provide advice on dog training, how to socialise your dogs and tip and tricks to get your dogs better trained and to respond through positive reinforcement.
