Founder & Crazy Animal Lady

I started Watching Over Wilbur in 2011 because I love caring for animals and have made it my mission to support my happiness by surrounding myself with pets. Since its conception, I have groomed, walked, driven around, socialised, and played with hundreds of dogs. I value all of my clients and the relationships I have built over the years. In my free time, I volunteer for Forever Friends Animal Rescue and help promote animal welfare, as it's one of my biggest passions in life.

     I strive to provide clients with the peace of mind that comes with having a reliable, responsible, experienced, and loving pet care provider. Our home is a fun, loving, and safe environment, where visiting dogs can socialise with our two dogs – Alfie (golden retriever, aged 11) and Chester (Kelpie cross, aged 7). Some dogs do better with other companions we may have staying at the same time and others prefer to stay with me all the time and aren’t as social. That’s fine, too! I am careful about managing every situation, and I always do what's best for the dogs' safety and experience. 

      As the carer of Alfie and Chester I know how horrible it can feel to leave your baby when you're away. Finding a reputable pet care provider that you can fully trust and rely on can be difficult. That's why I'm here. I'd love to ease that stress you may be feeling when looking for someone to trust with your pet, whether it be pet minding, daycare, or grooming. I look forward to being the person to provide that safe haven full of fun and love, and allow you to feel at ease and secure about your choice.
