Business Owner, Canine Coach & Professional Dog Nanny
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 and currently lives with a Whippet called Bones and her soulmate, Shimmy, who is a Kelpie cross. She regularly attends positive reinforcement-based training programs and seminars including training in the basics, Clicks and Tricks, recall, control off-leash, loose leash walking, canine behaviour, reactive dogs and agility. 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.
Professional Dog Nanny, Bayside
Jo has been involved with her beloved cocker spaniels for more than 30 years, but has also opened her home to many other dogs of a variety of breeds, shapes and sizes. She has been involved with obedience training since the ‘80s, where she was thankful to be part of the change in the way we now train and enrich our dogs’ lives using force-free methods. She has worked in the pet industry for many years, providing grooming, ethical breeding, and supporting families through the difficult time of saying goodbye to their pets. Jo lives with her cocker spaniel, Ellie, who is a great companion, and they train weekly to strengthen their relationship and learn new skills, utilising positive reinforcement techniques.
