I am American (from Boston) and have lived in Sydney for the past 20 years with my wife, daughter and of course dogs! After spending most of my career in the corporate world of executive search, I decided to make a change which would allow me to follow one of my greatest passions – animals.
Having grown up with dogs (I currently have two, a Labrador and an Alaskan Malamute), I understand the pleasure and comfort that dogs bring to people and how important they can be. After working in the busy corporate world and seeing firsthand how busy parents are with kids in school, I know what it means to be “time poor” and how, unfortunately, the family member who often misses out is the beloved dog.
This is why I decided to start a Professional Dog Walking & Pet Care business; I wanted to help other dog owners ensure that, on a regular basis, their dog gets the exercise and socialisation it needs to be happy and healthy.
I continuously receive feedback from clients that they are so relieved to come home to a relaxed dog after it has had its daily exercise; they don’t need to try and fit in the dog walk while having to cook dinner, help with homework, etc.
Why is my job so rewarding? Firstly I get to participate in daily adventures with fabulous dogs of all shapes and sizes. Also, caring for the treasured pets of my clients allows me the opportunity to add real value to people’s lives and the community.
DOG TREK is your LOCAL DOG WALKING service, covering the Hornsby Shire suburbs and surrounding areas including Asquith, Hornsby, Hornsby Heights, Waitara, Wahroonga, Normanhurst, Westleigh, Thornleigh, Pennant Hills, Beecroft, Cheltenham, Epping, Cherrybrook and Dural.
We provide your pet with safe, regular exercise which is so vital to its health and well-being. Our specialty is regularly scheduled group walks to fully fenced dog parks; we believe that the majority of dogs will benefit most from a dog park environment as it provides the off-leash freedom and social interaction needed to stay active, healthy and happy.
We always walk a maximum of 4 dogs per group walk because not only is this the law, but it allows us to provide your dog with the focussed attention it deserves. To keep things interesting, we visit a variety of parks where your dog can a run, play and sniff to their heart’s content!
Where required or preferred, we will walk your dog individually. This may be particularly beneficial for young puppies, dogs in training, dogs that do not mix well with other dogs and/or older dogs that prefer a more leisurely, peaceful walk.
We love dogs, always have, and have two dogs of our own (Labrador and Alaskan Malamute). We understand what your pet means to you, and whether you choose a group or individual walking service, we will always treat your dog like our own and will consistently provide all dogs with a personalised experience to ensure their health and safety.
We want your dog to have fun with us on our daily dog adventures, and afterwards we will return your furry friend home, happy and relaxed for a well-earned rest.
Holiday & Casual Pet Care
When you are away on holidays or maybe just a few days, we can visit your home once or twice daily and do whatever you require for your pets and household, which may include:
- Walking the dog
- Feeding your pet (dogs and any other, we love all animals)
- Ensuring your pet has fresh water
- Clean up any poo in the yard
- Administer any medication or other health care required
- Water the plants and/or garden as needed
- Ensure the rubbish bins are in/out
- Collect your mail on a daily basis-good for home security
- Give your pet lots of love and affection!
This service offers an alternative to boarding kennels, and we believe that pets will generally be calmer, happier and less stressed in their home environment if they get adequate care and attention. There will also be less risk of exposure to contagious illnesses and/or parasites from other animals in a boarding kennel.
For pet owners needing pet transportation assistance (i.e. to the vet, groomer, kennels, etc.), we offer a taxi service to/from the required destination.
