A Holistic Approach to Animal Care and Training
I grew up around animals and have been surrounded with them ever since. My dream is to one day have a wild life sanctuary but for now I am content working with dogs, horses and other farm animals.
I am owned by numerous dogs, horses, pigs, bunnies and chickens and am the mother of two human boys.
I started my career as a beauty therapist, but soon realized that my hobby needed to become a much bigger part of my life. I studied animal behaviour and dog training through more than one facility but most of my science based training was done through Raising Canine LLC, Texas and Through the Horses Mouth.
You can read more about my credentials and adventures to Alaska, Colorado, Texas and England on the About us page.
The website started as me working with dogs only hence the name dog care centre. However since then I have started working with people and other animals too through intuitive energy healing and self-selection which is a way animals are able to help heal themselves by selection plant extracts in the form of herbs and essential oils. I also do animal communication, both these modalities form part of our training programs. We focus on healing the whole being and not just "fixing"a unwanted behaviour.
We strive to make all pets staying with us comfortable and relaxed and provide a stable and loving environment while your pet stays in our care. We are a smaller facility that provide optimum care and a professional service. We also provide supervised day care and walks while your dog stays at our kennels. We offer 13 spacious outside kennels that has synthetic lawn installed as well as good weather coverage. We also have a indoor cabin and a in-house option for smaller dogs and bunnies. We have been in the business for 12 years and have a large returning clientele.
