Owner/Manager and Educator
I give hope to people that their particular issues/case is never lost and impart information to overcome obstacles with natural, instinctual principles that govern the animal world.
When not at Animism, I work with K9 to 5, Doggie Daycare, with up to 30 dogs. Problem pets are my specialty and I am serious about creating quality pet and human relationships. My passion is to improve animal’s lives and have done this over and over by usingthe unique gift of communicating my insights to humans.
Recently I hand raised a puppy from 5 days old who is now living with a special little deaf girl and her family and I have fostered and rehabilitated many dogs in the past. In my life at the moment, Carrie, the Doberman coming up 11 years of age, 2year old English Setter, Ethan, assistant Border Collie, Georgie, 15 years of age who is calm with all dogs(sadly George recently passed). Now there is Pepi the Poodle, Jilli the sheep herding Kelpie, Cody the Border Collie. Jack the Labrador, Trixie the Jack Russell x spaniel. They keep company and can be seen walking the river and enjoying socialising at the many dog friendly coffee shops with clients and their beloved best friends.
