About Shanaya

Hey everyone!

About Me

I'm currently doing my undergraduate in 'Animal Biology Behaviour Welfare and Ethics', so I have an immense interest in understanding animals.

I adore dogs and have lots of experience working with their different personalities. Growing up I had the sweetest golden retriever, and now I have a Singapore Special (Nala) who is predisposed to fear so I am working with her to build her confidence. I have identified numerous locations that are more secluded for fearful dogs to ensure that they are more comfortable during walks. I also have practice with long leash training to start teaching dogs basic recall.

I volunteer at a dog shelter in Singapore, where I got the opportunity to further develop my skill of interacting and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes and with various behavioural tendencies. Many of the dogs are timid and scared of vehicles or unknown people, some were reactive towards other dogs and some just got overly excited about walks :) I also used to help different neighbours by walking their dogs which included a Border Collie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Tibetan Terrier and a Siberian husky.

Dog walking

Allowing dogs to have long fulfilling walks can solve lots of behavioural problems and ensure that they are calmer at home. I always encourage positive reinforcement training and believe that giving animals choices is important to their happiness. I am patient with dogs and will give them time to sniff, while also making sure they get enough exercise and are always content during the walk. I can adapt the walk to suit the dog, more active dogs can be taken on runs, while elderly dogs may prefer a slower pace with more sniff work (finding treats in different areas to motivate them to move around).

Walks are usually 1 hour, timings can be flexible to your preference

Doggy Day Care

I offer daycare for dogs to stay at my flat if they need to be watched over during the day. I am currently on holiday so guest dogs can be constantly supervised throughout the day. There are 3 other members in my household (parents and helper) who can also supervise if required. For the daycare, I can only accept dogs that get on well with other dogs.

What is included in the daycare?

  • Daycare timings are flexible to anytime between 9 am to 8 pm
  • 2 short walks (10-20min) + 1 long walk (1h)
  • Constant supervision throughout their stay
  • Access to most of the house (Balcony door will always be kept shut as a precaution)
  • Plenty of doggy toys and enrichment feeding toys
  • A playmate! My dog Nala is a 2-year-old female Singapore special. She loves meeting new dogs and will keep them entertained, while also providing some healthy dog-dog socialisation.
  • Feeding and walking timings can be adjusted to follow your dog's usual schedule
  • Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions :)

    Shanaya is extremely professional and our dogs absolutely loved her warm personality. I would highly recommend her for daycare/walks.
