About Kate

Hi everyone ☺️

I am a professional dog trainer, walker and sitter. I take pride in my use of ethical methods and staying up to date with my education in dog behaviour.

I am canine first aid qualified and have experience with a very wide range of breeds as well as puppies and senior dogs. I have gained my certificate in Professional Dog Walking, certificate in Canine Body Language and Communication, and am currently completing my diploma in Professional Dog Training.

I am available to walk your dog either locally to you or take them futher afield to safe walking spots in my car. I have a full license and dog seat belts, as your dog's safety is a highest priority for me. While walking your dog, I am also able to focus on areas such as loose lead walking and recall, meaning their walk is not only about getting physical excersise but also beneficial to their training. Our walks will be 1 on 1, unless arranged otherwise, so that they get my full attention. 

I am also available for day time drop in services and overnight stays to keep your dog company in the comfort of your own home while. I am confident in administering medication and all other aspects of dog care.

I have previously owned and cared for a wide range of animals such as cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, sheep and horses (I have my NZQA level 2 in Equine Studies) - no animal is too big or small, so if you have any other requests I will do my best to accommodate them.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch ☺️

I look forward to hearing from you!

Kate was very easy to deal with, prompt replies and made me feel at ease. She took great care of our cat, and updated me each day!
