About me Mackenzie C.

Hey fellow petlover, great job in taking the first step and clicking on my profile! My name is MacKenzie, I am 22 years old and have spent the last few years working in rescue organisations in both New Zealand and London. I received extensive training in dog behaviour and handling while working as a team leader at one of the most reputable animal rescue organisations in the world - Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. Most recently I have spent the last year and a half working for a local doggy daycare and have now left this job to focus on my application to join the Police Force with the goal of becoming a dog handler. I started off on the career path I had always dreamed of since I was a child and begun studying my Diploma in Business Management in 2014 and continued on to complete my Bachelors in Applied Management with the goal of moving into the corporate world. Luckily for me I chose to volunteer with the SPCA in my last semester a...

Hey fellow petlover, great job in taking the first step and clicking on my profile! My name is MacKenzie, I am 22 years old and have spent the last few years working in rescue organisations in both New Zealand and London. I received extensive training in dog behaviour and handling while working as a team leader at one of the most reputable animal rescue organisations in the world - Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. Most recently I have spent the last year and a half working for a local doggy daycare and have now left this job to focus on my application to join the Police Force with the goal of becoming a dog handler. I started off on the career path I had always dreamed of since I was a child and begun studying my Diploma in Business Management in 2014 and continued on to complete my Bachelors in Applied Management with the goal of moving into the corporate world. Luckily for me I chose to volunteer with the SPCA in my last semester as research for a project and I never turned back! The last few years have taken me on an incredible journey of discovering my passion for dogs and animal welfare as a whole. I'm currently living in Waiuku with a 12 year old cocker spaniel (Betsy) who has a strong passion for life and my two cats Leia (I discovered in my garage at a week old) and Louis who is a stunning pure white cat with an inability to hear anything including his call for dinner time! Each dog walk will consist of at least 30 minutes of walking but can be increased to up to 1 hour of mixed walk and play depending on your dogs fitness level and requirements. I believe that while physical exercise is important, mental stimulation and exercises that encourage your dog to think and learn while playing are just as important and provide your dog with a much more fulfilling workout. Depending on your location and your dogs preferences we can establish a walking route or area that is suitable. Possible walking locations I frequent include a forest walk, dog park, duck pond and lookout point, as well as being a 10 minute drive from Kariotahi beach. A home visit will last anywhere up to 1 hour depending on your requirements. During this time I am happy to feed, refresh water, take to the bathroom, administer oral medication, play with and cuddle your dog. I think that home visits can be a beneficial service for both you and your dog - providing peace of mind while away from home as well as comfort and company. Home visits can be great for puppies or dogs who suffer from separation anxiety and might like to have a bit of extra attention and care during the day. The wellbeing of our furry family members is of high priority and I understand the importance of finding a dog walker/sitter that both you and your dog are comfortable around and trust. I am happy to meet both you and your dog/s prior to a first booking being made in order to establish this trust and relationship and to ensure that we are the right fit for each other. I'm aware that communication is also a large part of building and maintaining this relationship and am happy to send photo/video updates to you throughout our time together. This extends to letting you know immediately if I have any issues or notice changes in behaviour or anything wrong with your dog and taking the appropriate action. I am happy to contact the parents of dogs I have previously worked with to provide you with their feedback as well as Facebook reviews from when I was employed at doggy daycare. I created this account quite a while ago but unfortunately due to work and losing login access to my account I have been inactive. My account is now fully recovered and my days and hours now completely open to take any bookings for dog walking or house sitting while I train for the physical part of the Police test. Animals are my passion and their enthusiasm for life and constant loyalty are what get me up in the morning. I would enjoy nothing more than getting to know your beloved pet and to provide them with the highest standard of care and comfort. I look forward to hearing from you and having a chat about how I can provide an experience that your pet will enjoy as well as giving you peace of mind. * I have my own car and a clean record full New Zealand drivers license and am happy to travel or pick up/drop off within a reasonable distance. * For dog walking services and home visits I cover a distance of 20km from my home address in Waiuku to your location as complimentary. This includes most of areas such as Puni, Patumahoe and Glenbrook but is not limited to these locations and will depend on your address. Locations outside of this 20km radius will incur an additional fee of $1.00 per additional km. Please feel free to contact me for an exact quote. The 30 minute - 1 hour walk excludes driving and travel time. * Home visits and house sitting is also open to feline family members. Feel free to message me to find out what I can offer you and your feline companion.
