Paws Pet Care - Making their day while you're away
I set up Paws Pet Care in 2014 to meet the growing demand for dog walkers that is a reflection of our busy lifestyles and people struggling to find the time to walk their dogs.
Dogs are social animals that ideally need to get out at least once per day to see the world and stay mentally and physically healthy.
Dogs who do not receive enough exercise often resort to unwanted behaviours at home like chewing, digging, and barking to relieve their boredom and vent their frustration. Imagine coming home to a relaxed dog rather than a hyperactive one who is itching to go out.
Giving your dog the opportunity to get out to the park and run and play with other dogs will make him/her, and You, feel much better.
I also provide dog training at your home, and a home visiting service if you go away and need someone to look after your pets.
I have a BSc honours degree in psychology, am a qualified dog trainer (IMDT) and have over 20 years experience working as a vet nurse, at an animal shelter in London, and have volunteered at dog kennels, dog training clubs and for 10 years as a dog walker for people who are unable to walk their dogs due to illness/disability before setting up my Paws Pet Care business.
Much of my spare time is spent improving my knowledge and skills regarding force-free reward-based dog behaviour and training techniques. You'll always see me with a bag of high-value treats (cheese, chicken, polony), various toys, positive energy and lots of interaction with the dogs to help keep their focus on me.
I receive referrals from local veterinarians and other professional dog trainers who know that regular exercise is essential for dogs to be healthy, happy and less likely to exhibit problem behaviours.
My education, maturity, responsibility, reliability, experience and confidence with animals along with my caring nature means that you can rest assured your pets are provided with the best care possible in your absence.
I cover the following suburbs: Bateman, Brentwood, Bull Creek, Canning Vale, Jandakot, Kardinya, Leeming, Murdoch, North Lake, Riverton, Rossmoyne, Shelley, Willetton, Winthrop and parts of some bordering suburbs.
I offer social walks and special needs walks. We go to a variety of parks in my air-conditioned van.
On social walks, the dogs are off-lead and able to interact, run, sniff, and play fetch. I call the dogs to me many times during the walk, reward them and release them to play again. Even the ones who start off slow to respond soon speed up when they see the other dogs getting treats!
Social walks are $27.50 including pick up, transport to a nearby park, a 45mins walk and drop home. Plus texts with photos/videos and a post-walk update text.
These walks are for non-aggressive, vaccinated, desexed dogs with good recall.
Special needs walks are for dogs who do not fit in the above category e.g. dogs who are reactive, chasers of animals/birds and have to stay on long-line (I have successfully integrated many of these dogs to off-lead social walks). These walks are $55/45mins.

While you're away, I can look after your pets e.g.feed/water pets, give medication (experienced at giving pills, eye drops, injections), water plants, scoop poop, clean litter tray, collect post, curtains open/closed, lights on/off etc.
Home visits are $30/30 mins. Dog walks are $55/45mins.
Surcharges apply for non-regular walks and for weekends/public holidays/peak holiday periods.
I have a current police clearance, insurance and references.
