Business Owner, Director and Dog Trainer
Cassandra is the owner of Fur Get Me Not. She established the business because she looked but could not find a similar service that she would be comfortable trusting her own dogs with. Fur Get Me Not was created to be a professional dog service that offered quality, transparency, service and peace of mind like none other.
Cassandra’s non-canine professional background was working in executive positions in the not-for-profit sector. Now she happily works every day to improve the lives of the local canine community and train and support her contractors to be the best possible dog nannies.
Cassandra has welcomed German shepherds, Silky terriers, Rhodesian ridgebacks and Greyhounds into her family. She currently lives with a Whippet called Bones and her soulmate, Shimmy, who is a Kelpie cross. She is always continuing her studies and professional development as a dog trainer. This is to ensure she is up to date with science and modern positive reinforcement-based training. She is certified in Canine First Aid and has completed an advanced certificate in Canine Reactive Behaviour with Distinction and studies in Canine Coaching. Not only is Cassandra passionate about helping busy people give their dog the life they deserve, but also assisting people to build the kind of relationship that she has with Shimmy through positive reinforcement-based training.
