About Thelma

I love dogs and believe they are very intelligent and intuitive

animals. I think I may be that dog lady. I know how hard it is to leave your dog behind when you go away and do not want to put them into kennels. Dogs love their humans and when they are away from you they can get anxious, which is why I know the importance of dog sitting, dog walking and dog visits at their home.

When I am walking your dog, you can be sure that they will have lots of fun. I have grown up with dogs and I understand their different breeds. The very first dog I cared for was a Rottweiler with a lot of sass. I learnt so much about this breed such as it's protective nature and curiosity, it's loyalty and her need for cuddles (which I loved).

I have a great understanding of how to care for dogs in a calm and playful way. I find the best way to get to know a dog is by taking them for a walk.

My love for the outdoors and dogs has lead me to work with dogs. Taking care of your pet comes with huge responsibility and I will make sure to get specific instructions on how you would like your pet cared for and I understand that every situation and family member is different.

The overnight service I provide includes:

*My stays are usually from afternoon between 4:00- 5:00 pm start on the day (unless requested to arrive earlier)  9:00 am-12:00 pm departing time (unless requested to stay longer).

I understand that clients have different times they leave and come home, so I am flexible with these times and happy to accommodate where I can. This may incur an extra fee.

• My stay includes walking every day, spending quality time together and caring for their needs (feeding, playing and loving them etc..).

• I will be in and out of the house and there will be times when the dogs will be home alone for several hours during the day.

• In the afternoon and at night I will be with your pets and I will do my absolute best to keep their routine.

•Your dogs will be walked every day.

• I will leave your home clean and tidy.

• I will update you frequently on how your pets are going.

• Please insure you're aware of any

preexisting

damage to your home such as stains on the carpet or damage to furniture. This is important for you on your return as you may not have noticed this before left. I will keep you informed if I accidently damage or break anything and replace anything that I do damage or break. I take this very seriously.

Please feel free to request daily updates. I know it can be a stressful time for you and your pets, and I would like to keep you informed to relieve any stress.

• Other services that you may want to request include, collecting your mail, watering your garden and indoor plants.

If you would like me to undertake any other task/jobs around the house, please feel free to ask and we can discuss further.

I will treat your pets with love and care and as though they are my own.

Dog training experience. I have not gone through the formal education, however, I have learned from experience through owning three dogs and with my first dog I paid over $1500 for dog training and my partner and I received training and tips on what to do and what not to do. I was able to use those skills to teach my other dogs tricks and how to walk calmly on the lead.
