About Emma

Dog walking: We love daily long walks on the beach and so between the two of us we will always be available to walk your furry friend. Our normal walk is once a day, before or after work, and is from our house to Wollongong Main beach, to the lighthouse and back, which is about a 5 km round trip. We are happy to extend / shorten this depending on your requirement / the size of your dog. We are also happy to keep the dog on / off the beach, if you prefer the dog to have time in the water or no sand on him / her at all.

We have also noticed that most of our clients like us to come to them, in which case we will pick a walk near your property for your pup.

On average, we would walk your pet for about 45 minutes - an hour per walk, in which we cover 4 - 5kms.

Home visits: If you would like us to do a home visit, we are happy to arrange that depending on your pets feeding schedule. We are happy to spend half an hour / 45 minutes per home visit.

Home Dog Boarding: We have two bunnies that live at our apartment; however, they will be put away should your pet come to stay. We have a HUGE balcony (about 75 cms high), and we are happy to have the dog inside or outside, based off how he / she has been brought up (see photos). If inside, the dog can sleep in our bedroom with us, or in the lounge, again based of what he / she is used to.

My partner Kartik and I are avid dog and animal lovers. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to have a full time dog, so dog walking sounded like the next best option for us!

A bit about us: Kartik is an App Support Analyst at UOW & a part time army reservist. I am studying post graduate medicine at UOW :)

We both have years of experience with medium and large dogs. I grew up around Newfoundlands, Golden Retrievers, German Short Haired Pointers and Irish Setters. Kartik grew up with mixed dogs, blue heelers, Kelpies and Staffies.

Before moving to wollongong, Kartik volunteered at the Geelong Animal Welfare Society (GAWS), and so has exeperience caring for puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and other small animals.

We also are part of the Australian Guide Dog puppy raising program, and do temporary care for the puppies throughout the area (so our house has been checked and we have attended numerous puppy training sessions).
