I have been an avid dog lover since the day I can remember! I have just recently been certified in Pet first aid so I can assure pet owners that their furr babies will be safe and sound with me! I have dog sat and walked dogs since I was very young and have had amazing reviews from family and friends.
I am happy to work with all sorts of dogs, especially ones with more troubled backgrounds as I have done many hours volunteering at local shelters.
I have recently obtained a certificate in dog psychology and training and am continuing to educate myself in dog cognition at the university level. I also have many hours volunteering and being trained at animal shelters. I have worked with dogs that have had troubled pasts before so am not afraid to take on the tougher cases. I can guarantee a calm demeanor with your dog and ONLY positive re-inforcement. I do not and will not use any type of force. Patience is my strongest attribute when it comes to dogs so I'm happy to work with you and your dog's specific needs as I believe every dog is completely different!
A dog walk with me could be anything from a walk around the neighbourhood to a big play at the dog park or a long walk on the beach! I can cater to your dog and it's specific needs. My walks will be a minimum of half an hour up to 45 minutes if your dog requires more exercise. Home visits will be between 30-40 minutes and will be catered to your dog's needs. If they need a play we will have play! If they just need some cuddles, of course that's what they will get! I am super flexible and understand that all dogs are different and have individual needs. If you want a longer home visit you are welcome to book two visits and I can stay for just over an hour instead of doing two seperate visits!
I currently have one dog, Coco, who is a bull terrier mix that we adopted from Christchurch bullbreed rescue. She will most likely not join us on walks as she can be over-excitable but I am happy to do any mixing or training with the right dog if socialization is something your pup is in need of.
I hope you consider me for all your pet carer needs. I look forward to working with you!
Madie is awesome! Excellent communication, lets me know if there is any issues, open to following our training practices.
Awesome with our puppy. 🐾🐾
Madie has been an amazing helping with my new puppy and still giving loads of attention to his jealous big brother! They are a handful and she has been great with them both! She has been flexible, diligent and a great communicator as well as having an impressive knowledge of dogs in general. Highly recommend.
