After moving to Australia from New Zealand, whilst working in the hospitality industry, she began furthering her interest and love of dogs into a career by completing her dog trainer qualifications with the GDTA at Kintala Club. Whilst working for companies that provided dog walking, pet minding and training, Loose Lead Pets became a dream that she decided to turn into reality.
We only endorse positive reinforcement methods, as extensive research has proven that this is the only successful way forward in dog training and fostering rewarding relationships between animals and their humans. This is the core belief and principle of Loose Lead Pets.
David is an Electronics Technician however a love of animals and in particular dogs has led him to work for Loose Lead Pets. His love of dogs began as a kid. Growing up, they always had dogs around the family home and they were included in everything. In recent times he’s been dog minding and fostering a wide range of breeds.
He’s currently owned by Finn, a mixed breed who found David and convinced him to keep him as a foster fail.
