Welcome to Australia\ u2019s Walk Abouts. I have more than 30 years of experience with not only canines & felines but reptiles, rabbits and fish. Ive also raised four children while caring for multiple pets and working full time in corporate America. I grew up with several pets so, animals have always been apart of my life. While growing up in North Carolina, my mother didnt allow pets indoors. However, she encouraged the children to go outside and run about ! The animals were always happier when outside and I was too! Domestic pets have a natural instinct to roam or at least be outside as often and as long as possible. Walk Abouts with Australia or one of my family Pack Leaders, allows your dog to experience the outdoors environment safely. Walkers allow the dog to stand still and sniff the breeze, mark that familiar curb side spot or stroll along suburban & urban streets while taking in the sights & sounds. Dogs are not rushed or pulled along. Hikes can also be scheduled for your pet kid for an additional fee in one of Essex Counties many reservations or dog friendly parks. Walks are available in 20 to 40 minute sessions. After their walk your dog will have their face & paws wiped off, coat wiped down and receive an approved treat and a fresh bowl of water! AWA will return your pet to their den to be left out or put in their crate. (per your instructions. ) Additional services offered are: Simple 5 minute brush outs, feeding, teeth brushing, administering medication and 5 minute basic behavior reinforcements. ( Sit, Stay, Come, Down, Leave it. ) Please ask about my Concierge & Transportation Services: Veterinarian & grooming appointments, daycare drop offs or pick ups. Local errands and shopping for pet supplies. Dont give your pet the standard dog walking service. Give your pet Australias Walk Abouts Experience!
