Hi my name is Carly, I am a certified Dog Trainer and hold qualifications in Domestic Animal Care and Wildlife Rescue. I have been working in pet care for many years now and find it incredibly rewarding and enriching.
I am an enthusiastic animal lover of all creatures big and small, being happy to extend my knowledge and expertise to my pet care duties. Whether that means applying dog obedience training during visits and walks or administering specific medications, I am happy to provide.
Originally from Australia, I grew up on a farm caring for dogs, sheep, chickens, rabbits, horses and a variety of other animals and wildlife. I am willing to look after a wide range of pets and animals, including the more unusual domestic pets!
I live an active lifestyle, love hiking and climbing but also enjoy quiet time at home. I am very house proud, neat and tidy. I consider myself a great communicator who promptly responds to messages, and while caring for your pet will send regular updates.
I am dedicated to providing your precious pets with plenty of attention, enrichment and love. Making sure your pups, kitties, bunnies or any of your special pets have a stress free, happy time at home or on their walk.
DOG WALKING - I am comfortable walking 2 large dogs, 3 medium sized dogs or 4 small dogs at a time. My belief is to use positive reinforcement and force free handling techniques while walking. Walks are 30-minutes, one-on-one or the family pack, meaning they get my undivided attention. Need a longer walk? No problem. Contact me to customise your pup's walking needs!
HOME VISITS - each pet visit is 30-minutes and will include potty breaks (and poop scoop), feeding, fresh water, litter scoop/change, spot cage cleaning, accident clean ups, play time, cuddling and a couple of quick snaps to send to the owners. These can be customised to your home and pet's needs. If additional time is allocated, I can also provide security checks such as perimeter checks, mail collection, rotating lights and curtains (on/off, open/close), water plants and other checks as needed.
HOUSE SITTING - caring for your lovely pets in their familiar, safe environment! I will provide everything that I would on a home visit, plus the extras and if you have a dog, they will get a daily walk as well.
You can count on me to provide a professional service, ensuring your pets unique needs are fulfilled and have the confidence that everything will be cared for in the highest degree.
My aim is to ensure that, you as a pet owner, leave your pet with me, feeling confident and relaxed that they are in the best care possible.
Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.
Carly took excellent care of my two cats!
Carly is a truly caring, responsible, reliable and communicative individual. She's wonderful with our elderly cat, easy going, and takes care of our place with the utmost respect. She's very good at making sure our pet's needs are met and is great at communicating. I don't worry about a thing when our cat is in her care. Highly recommended.
