Woof woof (that's dog for hello)

My name is Fiona and I live in Richmond with my 5 dogs - Barney, Charlie, Willow, Herbert and Nelson; 2 cats - Lenny and Leeroy; 4 chooks and a mix of lovebirds, budgies, doves and quails. I have lived in the Hawkesbury area for more than 15 years.

I started my business in 2009 after completing an Animal Attending course at Richmond Tafe and have since gained many wonderful clients. I have wanted to work with animals ever since I can remember and after talking to family and friends who had pets they all wanted the same thing - a service that allowed their pets to stay at home while they are away as they always found their pets were so stressed when they came back they felt guilty going on a holiday. This is how Fifi's Pet Minding started. What a fabulous idea to allow your pets to stay in the comfort of their own home and not have the stress of being locked in a kennel/cattery for the duration of your holiday. Your pet can enjoy all its home comforts and you will have the comfort of knowing that someone is looking after your pets while also checking on your house each day while you are away.

My experience with animals started from a child growing up with dogs, budgies, rabbits and ducks. I have done a lot of volunteer work with various rescue organisations and worked at Hawkesbury Animal Shelter before becoming a foster carer with AWL. I am also a volunteer with Sydney Wildlife rescuing and rehabilitating injured birds.

Over the years I have obtained the following qualifications:

  • First Aid for Pets (2016)
  • Statement of Attainment in Dog Grooming (2015)
  • Statement of Attainment in Animal Massage (2012)
  • Cert III Dog Behaviour and Training - NDTF (2011)
  • Handling Dangerous Dogs with Steve Austin  (2010)
  • Cert II Animal Attending (2005)

I know that it can be hard leaving your furry pets behind when you need a break from the stresses of everyday life but rest assured your pets will be in the best hands possible and they will have the comfort of their own home and beds so they will be less stressed while you are away.
