A short bio…
I grew up on a farm in the Wairarapa, worked on farms and later became a vet nurse. I have also managed a cattery and, after a stint teaching, looked after people’s pets for a number of years before starting Allpets.
Allpets is different to other pet carers because as a vet nurse and experienced animal carer I know how important personal consistent care is to almost all animals and particularly pets. Allpets provides that and to a broad range of animals. For example I have looked after all kinds of dogs and cats as well as rabbits, pigs, chickens, guinea pigs, frogs, fish and axolotls to name but a few! My current pets are 2 spoilt dogs, Mikey & Sammy, and a bearded dragon called Rocko!
I pride myself on getting to know your pets. In doing so and being trained to spot illness and dietary issues, I know when a vet is needed. I also know how to provide medication and first aid to your animal if that should ever be needed.
“Regular visits to customers have allowed me to form bonds with all kinds of pets; and whether they were timid or feisty trust was formed because of the reassurance of kindness and a familiar face.”
I run my business from home in Paremata so I can give dogs coming in for doggy daycare my full attention, lots of exercise, and all the comforts of home. Caring for only small groups of dogs each day enables me to look after your dog as you would and spoil them accordingly.
Unlike other larger and often crowded daycare providers, timid and older dogs in my care don’t get stressed. The dogs don’t pick up diseases and they don’t come home with fleas. Dogs in Allpets care leave happy, exercised and flea free. Dogs coming to board at Allpets stay in our home and are treated like treasured guests.
Over the years of caring for different animals, I have learned that when owners are away for a period of time most other pets are better off cared for in their own home. Catteries can be a stressful environment for many. Allpets provides home pet feeding that carries the added advantage of veterinary nursing care for pets requiring medical attention.
An ongoing personal relationship with a trusted professional ensures peace of mind. Regular visits by the same carer allow animals to form a bond with the person caring for them in their owner’s absence.
Another short bio…
As I began my journey walking dogs, it soon became apparent that there is so much more to walking a dog than clipping on a leash and heading out the door. The walk is an integral part of a dogs’ life – it’s the way they learn to interpret the world that surrounds them, and it’s a great way to form bonds with their human companions. Since beginning my work with dogs in 2019, I have become fascinated with all things canine, researching different styles and methods of dog training and psychology. I believe it is our responsibility and privilege to help guide them through their whole life’s journey.
I find great interest learning how dogs perceive the world around them, as well as the information given to them by us. Like any relationship, I believe that balance is key when it comes to training a dog – with exercise, correct guidance, kind discipline, and affection, we as companions can help to unlock our dog’s true potential. Much like children require a parent or guardian to help them understand, and promote certain behaviours, dogs require a human companion/leader to calmly and confidently guide their view of how to conduct themselves, and ultimately empower them to make their own correct decisions. In a modern society designed for humans, by humans, mastering the walk can be a huge step in this process.
“Moderating my energy allows the pack to emulate that energy and therefore effectively process information presented to them. I lead our packs in a calm and confident manner, and with me your dog will come to learn the etiquette of pack life whilst being given as much freedom as they can responsibly handle.”
