SOMETHING ABOUT ME I always have a love for dogs since young but it was only during my National Service (NS) when I was posted to the Military Working Dog Unit that I realised that my dream of spending much time with dogs came true. It was there that I really saw that dogs can be the most loyal, sensitive, friendly and loving companions one could ever wish for. I spent around 1.5 years with my dogs during my NS stint. I rose through the ranks and became my Shift and Standard In-charge because of my high level of discipline and standard in dog handling as well as an affinity, care and love for the dogs. The skills I acquired during that time made it easy for me to familiarise, build a bond with and handle my girlfriend's and friends' dogs. After I completed my NS in early 2021, I really missed those time spent with my dogs and I wanted to carve out time to spend with new canine friends. I decided that being a pet sitter provided me with this perfect opportunity. I am currently awaiting matriculation in SUTD this September. I will gladly make time to find dog-walking opportunities, giving my 101% attention and care to your dogs. Fret not, I won't be on my mobile phone as going to the big outdoors with them is such a bliss for me. And, I will return your dogs to you safely and happy!
EXPERIENCE I have been tasked to care for the well-being and trained in the handling of dogs. This includes walking, basic obedience training, grooming, cleaning and bathing dogs. I am also experienced in medical treatment and care, cleaning and dressing of wounds which requires great care and proper hygiene. I am also well equipped with the knowledge of monitoring dogs’ behaviour and physical condition for signs that require intervention; making sure the dogs are in a happy and healthy condition. With 1.5 years of cleaning dogs’ businesses, bringing them to exercising grounds and washing kennels, I am pretty adept at cleaning up and caring for their hygiene; a task which most people may find unpleasant. I take pride that I am able and responsible to handle almost all types of dogs of all sizes as I have handled many different breeds of dogs. From dogs as small as a Mini Pomeranian, Poodles to the likes of Labradors, German Shepherds and Malinois. (I lean towards a heavily built.) Regardless of size, breed, age or gender, I promise that I'll be able to quickly connect and shower your beloved pets which as much Tender Loving Care that I can give.
SERVICES I am able to do dog walks, home visits and house sitting. For dog walks, the duration can range from 10-40 mins depending on your preference. I would be able to walk more than 1 dogs if necessary. During the walks, I am also able to play (e.g. fetch) dogs or going for a short jog if required. For home visits and house sittings, the duration can be for the whole day if required depending on my availability. I am also able to help in meal preparation, basic grooming, bathing and bringing them out for walks.
My dog and my mom both loved Michael. He is experienced and great with animals. Even taught my mum how to handle my dog better. Much recommended!
Micheal is a very kind and warm-hearted individual. Both my boys took to him immediately and became his friends. He is independent and required very little direction. I would highly recommend him for his services.
I am certified by the Singapore Military Police Enforcement Unit as a Dog Handler.
