About Bronnie

Hello! I work from home mostly and spend almost 24/7 with my animals.

Dogs are big in my family. My sister and brother-in-law co-wrote a NYT Bestseller “The Genius Of Dogs”. He is a Professor at Duke University, specialising in canine cognition. We are OBSESSED!

When your dog stays s/he is a part of the family. No extra fee for training as any doggy guest in my home will be under the same instruction/training as my own.

My campervan is great for adventures with Wolf Pack to places like Uriarra, Weston Park, and other scenic dog friendly spots.

Your dog MUST be:

-desexed, with worming & vaccinations up to date.

-have no contagious illness such as kennel cough, gastro etc

-placid, friendly and gentle in nature. Hyperactive, even slightly aggressive or super mischievous dogs won’t be accepted simply because this is disruptive and overwhelming for my dogs, cats & other guests.

-leash & toilet trained, house trained (not chewing or destroying things)

I aim to create a happy, relaxing home for all the dogs while they stay because like kids, they really do pine for their parents and need lots of love and gentle attention to get through the first few days. Walks twice a day and a big 60-90minute trek each day to help alleviate anxiety. Love dogs, love nature.

Bronnie is great- she knows how to handle (and train!) dogs and my dog has definitely found a second home at Bronnie‘s. Super flexible & accommodating, as well as really understanding dog behavior so she makes them feel welcome, secure & trainable. Highly recommend!

Bronnie was so welcoming to Bowie, she really does understand dog psychology. Bowie will definitely be a return visitor!

Skills

Specific Skills

< 1 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
Can take care of exotic animals
  • Extensive experience with dogs who have special needs and/or require ongoing medication. My own dog was diagnosed with a non-regenerative auto immune disease in 2015 and was under my near 24/7 care for over 6 months.
  • Experience in identifying symptoms of stress or potential illness ie. the difference between symptoms of snail bait VS rat poisoning. I don’t snooze on taking action when a pet is displaying unusual behaviour or symptoms.
  • Training.
  • Controlled Cat Contact Training. Canine guests who show potential for acclimatising to cats, may have supervised introductions to my cats over the duration of their stay. This is case by case depending on the doggy and how my cats are feeling. Ultimately everyone’s comfort is the main goal!
  • Can take care of reptiles in feeding and tank upkeep but I don’t take on snakes or anything that needs to eat frozen mice and things like that. Eeeek.
