About Faith

Are you looking for a dog walker, dog day care or dog boarding? Are you looking for someone reliable to provide home visits while you are on vacation? Are you looking for a person who is confident in reading animal body language with the main goal of ensuring that your dog or cat (or other species) is happy and stress-free?

Hi, my name is Faith and I am a certified canine consultant who is looking to spend quality time with your beloved pet. I love animals and enjoy finding ways to enrich their lives. Although my main vocation is as a professional certified dog training, I also enjoys daily walks around the area which is even more rewarding when walking with a dog. I am now caring for dogs on a case-by-case basis for dog boarding or overnights so we can enjoy the company of our dog in our lives for a short time.

I would love to keep your furry friend entertained. I have many return clients with dogs, cats and rabbits. Apart from enjoying the company of my own three dogs over the last 10 years, my previous experience includes: running a busy dog training facility (Seattle) which included teaching training classes & working on behavior issues with private clients. I also worked as an Adoption Counselor at my local shelter; spent a couple of years volunteering at another local shelter providing exercise & enrichment activities for the dogs and cats. I have also lived with, and enjoyed the crazy antics, of dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, fish, rats, a horse and a couple of Mexican Walking Fish.

I currently share my home with a mostly well behaved husband, an active 7yr old human, two fish (Kyoga & Harry Potter). I also have a few local wild birds who stop by whenever they feel like it (kookaburras, cockatoos, currawongs & lorikeets).

I am currently offering:

- dog walks (40mins)

My regular weekly time slots are quickly filling up but I am still able to take on a couple more regular clients. I have years of experience walking all kinds of dogs (varying breeds, sizes & temperaments). I am eager to assist dog owners who are seeking a responsible dog walker who will be walking only one dog at a time.

- home visits (30 mins)

During home visits, I am more than happy to collect mail, tidy up, water your plants and to spend some time just hanging out with your companions. I am available throughout the North shore area (Nth Sydney, Wollstonecraft, Waverton, Greenwich, Naremburn, Cammeray, Artarmon, Lane Cove, Chatswood, Roseville, Lindfield, Killara, Gordon, Willoughby and I occasionaly wander across the bridge).

- doggy day care (8am-6pm)

Your puppy or adolescent dog will need to be comfortable around a dog-savvy child. However, both will always be supervised to ensure that your dog enjoys their time at my home. For new clients, I will need to do a meet & greet to see how your dog responds to my child in order to make sure my family is a good fit. For my doggy day care or overnights, I only take in one dog at a time to ensure they have their needs met and we all get to have some fun together. If you have any questions, please contact me to discuss your needs.

- doggy boarding (24 hr period)

I don't always work over the school break since I enjoy spending time with my child, but please contact me if you need help during this time.

Faith was wonderful. I was co platelet comfortable leaving my rabbit in her care for the first time he’s been left. She did his feeding twice a day for us & all the other little quirks that go with an indoor freeranging rabbit. Great communication & photos of each visit. I’d absolutely recommend Faith & look forward to the day when she can look after our little guy in the future without me worrying about him.

Dog Boarding

Faith was everything we were looking for in a carer for our precious Sonny Boy. She completely put us at ease through her open and friendly communication style. She took the time to show us around her home and allowed Sonny to run around the house and get familiar with the environment. She took Sonny for two long walks each day, car rides to pick up her son from school, play time around her pool with her son and his friends, water games in the garden along with lessons on come and stay. He came home absolutely exhausted, and that’s saying something for our high energy boy. It was clear he had lots of love, fun, play and exercise. And, from the pictures Faith sent me, I could see he made his way to her bed at night. Once again thank you Faith for being a great carer and putting us at ease. 5 star recommendation from us!
