I'm a Canadian gal here in NZ - we have a hilariously outgoing toy poodle puppy (just turned 1 year) who loves loves LOVES playing with other dogs... even with doggy day care 3 days a week, he still acts like he's never seen another dog when we head to the beach or dog park every night lol
Back home in Canada I raised guide dog puppies for children with autism (volunteer two year position) that introduced me to the lovely world of proper pet ownership - training classes, best behaviour practices and *always* being one step ahead of distractions gave me a really solid background in dog training, which I then went on to do professionally for several months before moving out of country.
When my partner and I moved to NZ we got a puppy within a few months, and through lockdown did most of our basic training and got all the puppy cuddles. we're not ready yet to get a second dog, but we know ours would love a buddy to play with when we tire of throwing that darn tennis ball for him lol (he would chase it all day, I'm almost sure of it)
Pet sitting - your place
I offer day/overnight at your home (Pakiri/Warksworth).
If it's a day that I would normally work, I would leave for my 4h shift and then return.
Let me know if you have any further questions!
Marissa is an absolute star! She lovingly looked after our 8 month old puppy with lots of walks and cuddles. She stayed in our house and left it in the same condition when she left, she ever made the bed better than me! Marissa is lovely to deal with, easy to communicate and is a genuine doggy person. I would have no hesitation in recommending or using her again.
Marissa was so awesome with our pup Dex he loved playing with her puppy.
Lots of communication and felt happy that he was being well looked after .
We would definitely use her again and we highly recommend.
As mentioned previously I raised service dogs in Canada, so if there is any basic training I can help with (ie. leash pulling, basic commands) then I would be happy to help if possible.
