Polar Dog Training Solutions and Pet Sitting

Pimpama, QLD

I’ve been a certified professional dog trainer through Animal Behaviour College (ABC) since 2017, but my love for dogs started when I was a toddler. I grew up with dogs, cats, and various reptiles and amphibians. I had a golden retriever and a dalmation when I was a kid and they couldnt be more opposite. I've had toads, a bearded dragon, trantulas, a scorpion, a columbian red tailed boa, two cats and before moving to Australia I had a collection of ball pythons and my dog Bell. I love her so much I brought her with me when I moved, and I couldnt imagine leaving her behind.

In October 2017 I moved to the Gold Coast from Canada and started my company, Polar Dog Training Solutions, and I’m now looking to expand into pet sitting for long term or short term stays. One day I hope to open a board and train facility with daycare but for now I use my home. My positive based, balanced training methods are proven to work and easy enough for the whole family to use. I offer training when your dog stays with me but I also offer private training sessions.

Not only do I have my ABCDT certificate, but I also have my Pet First Aid certificate. Im currently in school part time for Vet nursing Cert IV and work at a dog daycare. I do not offer daycare because it is a conflict of interest. I have spent a lot of time with all sorts of animals including birds, reptiles, amphibians, cats, dogs, and rodents. I am forever learning more about animals


About This Listing

I have a 4 bedroom house with a fully fenced backyard and access to dog parks near by. I also have a large dog pool in the back yard to help stay cool in the summer heat and the house is air-conditioned. I work at a dog daycare which you pup can attend given the daycare is paid separately.

Katie looked after our 3 month old Husky, Logan, for a week at our apartment in Brisbane. Logan loved his time with Katie, she sent us lots of photos of him during our trip and he was very happy and healthy on our return. 100% recommend to look after your fur babies!

Katie looked after our 10 week old Husky, Logan for a weekend at our home in Brisbane. Being our first fur baby and very young we were nervous to leave him with anyone. We had a short meet and greet before the weekend and Logan loved her straight away. We particularly appreciated her knowledge of puppy training since Logan was a young pup it helped us keep his training going (and greatly improve it!) while we were away. Logan loved his time with Katie, she sent us lots of photos of him during our trip and he was very happy and healthy on our return. We have since hired her for another week long pet sit and plan to hire her again for a couple of business trips we have coming up. 100% recommend to look after your fur babies!
