I adore dogs. I always have. And I did everything in my power to convince my parents to get a family dog when I was 9. My first dog was a maltese cross named Elmo, and later I adopted a border collie cross kelpie named Ollie. I also have experience with staffies, labs, wolfhounds, bulldogs, german shephards, rotties, daschunds, whippets and a lot of mixed breeds of all ages.
Right now I live in an apartment, so cannot have a canine companion of my own, but I would love to make some more four-legged friends. I walk around Morningside, Hawthorne and Bulimba nearly every day and would love walking companions. I work from home Wednesday to Friday and have weekends off, so have flexibility to pick up your pooch for a fun outing mornings or evenings from Wednesday through to Sunday. I will walk your dog, or can visit your property to give them lots of attention for between 30-60mins.
My mother fosters dogs (so I visit her regularly to help out) and I am very familiar with adapting based on the dog's needs - from the more active (remember the border collie cross kelpie!? You could not tire him out no matter how hard you tried) through to the stubborn "this grassy spot looks like a good place to lie down" type. I've worked to train dogs to heel while walking and am more than happy to maintain whatever rules you have for your pet (including sitting before crossing the street and stopping if they try to pull on the lead).
Shay was very friendly and took great care of our two girls over a long weekend. Will definitely book with her again! Thanks Shay!
Shay comes highly recommended. A true animal person she bonded with our cat, Rupert straight away. Shay took fantastic care of our cats even spending time with them as well as the daily feed. Shay is a great communicator so organising sittings was easy and she keeps you regularly updated with photos while you are away. Thank you Shay!
I have grown up with dogs, have owned dogs and help my mother with her foster dogs. I have worked with owners training active dogs to heel, encourage lazy dogs to keep walking (after a rest if needed) and continue good habits (like friendly play with other dogs, sitting before crossing the road, etc). I'm always up for dog cuddles and pets.
