About David

Hi, my name is David. I live in Varsity Lakes with my wife and one year old son. We have a 4 year old desexed female dog called Sally. Sally is a Great Dane Cross, please don't let her size fool you, she is extremely friendly and well socialised with dogs of all sizes. She loves having doggy companions when we have dogs come to stay. Sally is a rescue dog from AWLQ, we got her when she was just 7 months old. I am currently training for my National Dog Training Federation certificate and have a current police check.

Dog Walking:

I have a great passion in helping people to exercise their canine companions. Research has shown that regular exercise, training and social stimulation can help your dog to experience better health and mental wellness. It can also help prevent and improve destructive and anti-social behaviours. I tailor exercise to your dog’s age, health and individual needs and offer everything from a gentle stroll to a good run alongside a bicycle for a more intensive work out. I can also offer obedience training while walking should this be required. So, if you have a dog who would like to get out and explore a bit more, a dog who needs a bit more exercise and some extra socialisation; whether it is a once off, for a couple of weeks or a regular walk I would love to hear from you.

Dog sitting, minding, day care and boarding:

Having always owned dogs myself I know how much your dog means to you and your family. That is why I want you to feel confident that your pet is being well cared for and having fun while in my care. If you are planning to go away I am happy to visit your dog in your home and make sure there is lots of fresh water, give food, clean up any mess, administer medications, provide a quick health check, go for a walk... whatever you decide your dog needs in your absence. I also offer dog boarding at my home and can cater for all dogs big and small provided they have an up-to-date vaccine certificate. My yard is fully fenced with secure high fencing, I have an undercover area with a large kennel which provides plenty of shade, I also have an area of grass which is big enough for a bit of a run. I ensure there is always plenty of fresh cool water to drink and provide access to a doggy paddling pool for anyone who needs to cool down. When dogs stay with me you can be assured they will get two walks per day, and if we're lucky we may even get to the beach for a swim. My home is air conditioned and I bring dogs inside on really hot days to help keep them cool. Dogs are welcome to sleep inside or outside. I ask that you provide their food so we keep their dietary intake the same as if they were at home. Dogs that come to me for daycare will also get one to two walks depending on your schedule, times they are with me and their individual needs. We provide a calm and kind environment where dogs can relax when they are not out and about exploring the local walks.

I believe that seeing is believing and I'm only to happy to provide regular updates and photos of our adventures when dogs are with me. If you think I could be of help please do not hesitate to contact me, I look forward to meeting you and your four legged companion.
