Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I’m a freelancer in the media industry. The great thing about being a freelancer is that it allows me the opportunity to pursue my passion with dogs when I have downtime.

Personally, being around dogs brings me a lot of joy and comfort. I enjoy dedicating time to spend with animals because during that period my focus is on them and they have my undivided attention. It’s a good way to be away from all forms of digital distractions.


I work adhoc at a doggy daycare and used to volunteer at a dog shelter for 5 years.

Both have taught me the proper ways to approach and handle dogs of different temperaments. When I was a volunteer, I helped to rehome a few dogs to loving and wonderful adopters. This has taught me the importance of trust and open communication.

I have also fostered a shelter dog for a period of 6 months before he got adpoted. While fostering, I did my best to get him assimilated to life in a house.

I understand the importance of physical and mental stimulation for a dog therefore I enjoy taking the dogs out for long walks (if they are able to handle it).

Rest assured I will take good care of your pet. (:
I love that each dog has a different personality. The work is always interesting without a dull moment!

Summary.

Hello there! Vanessa here. If you’re looking for someone to help walk your dog, please feel free to ping me. I’m a freelancer in the media industry which gives me the flexibility to manage my schedule and pursue my other passion which is working with dogs. (:

Experience
- Used to volunteer at a dog shelter for about 5 years. And in that span of time I was involved with walking, rehoming and rehab-ing shelter dogs.

- Currently work adhoc at a doggy daycare (since 2018)

//

Details
- Before the session, a quick chat with the owner would be preferred to understand the temperament of their fur kid (sessions can be adjusted accordingly)

- Generally each session will last 1 hour. 10mins meet and greet/leashing, 40-45mins walk around the neighbourhood and 5-10mins settle back home

- Rest assured there will be ample water breaks and photos/videos will be sent to the pawrents for updates

- During the walk, I will be using commercial treats (brand: love em/zignature kangaroo kibbles). If owners prefer I use theirs, please set aside some for me.

***For safety of the human and fur kid, I reserve the right to reject dogs during the meet and greet if they show severe signs of anxiety or aggression

Vanessa is very good with dogs. Even though this is the first time walking Billy, my boy took to Vanessa immediately. I will definitely contact Vanessa to walk Billy again.

Vanessa was punctual and gave updates about Finn during his walk. Vanessa also uses positive reinforcement training techniques with Finn which helped to manage finn's energetic behaviour. Thanks again!

Vanessa was incredible with Eric. Eric was instantly friendly with her. She made him feel at ease. She made sure to take photos of every walk, and seemed to have a huge knowledge in dog behavior. I was very happy and intend to ask for vanessa help with Eric again!

Suki loves her walks with Vanessa, and Vanessa really tired Suki out with longer walks down the park connector. It feels great to know Suki is having a great visit and getting some of her energy out. Thank you!!
