     ABOUT US             


I started Wildsands Petcare because I've spent my whole life learning about a variety of pets and working with animals. It is my passion and "drive" to help in any way I can build strong bonds between people and pets. I have 4 dogs of my own and 3 cats. I have combined trained and fostered over 1000 animals with clients or rescue foster animals. These include dogs, cats, birds ( domestic and exotic ), rabbits, chinchillas, Sugar gliders and other small animals. I also spent a huge part of my life with my uncle at his wildlife reserve, I am forever grateful for his wisdom, guidance and love of all things.

At Wildsands, I use my training skills to work with the dogs on a daily basis. We play games , fun agility, obstacle courses, mazes, puzzles and more! Your furry friend will be both mentally and physically happy when they leave Wildsands!


Most important, I love each one like family. It is not only important to build a strong connection with the pets but with the people as well.
