About Marie

As The Dog Alchemist, I have been practising as a dog behaviourist & trainer for more than 12 years. I specialise in working with Singapore Specials and dogs with behavioural issues. I have trained many breeds and have rehabilitated many dogs at animal shelters. 

As a dog owner, I personally will not put my dogs at pet boarding facilities because dogs prefer their own familiar surroundings whenever possible. Having their owners away from home is stressful enough. To be sent to a strange environment will be more stressful, not to mention limited time to free roam.

However, some dogs prefer to stay with someone when their owners are not home. For those who prefer company, staying alone for weeks while their owners are away will be more stressful for them.

As such, I have decided to offer dog walking, sitting and boarding services in my neighbourhood. For pawrents who are busy at work and don’t have time to walk or feed their furkids, or when they have to travel and need a caretaker for their pets' needs.

I asked myself what I love in life. Dogs is always top of my list, along with fitness pursuit. At that moment, I decided to also be a dog walker and caretaker, in addition to my profession as a dog behaviorist and trainer.

Not to mention, contribute to the community as a trustworthy dog handler to help all the dog owners out there. 😎

Dog sitting service can include feeding, changing of pee pad, administering meds and a walk (within the duration of the time booked). 

You will get lots of updates, photos and vids of your pets. ☺️ 

Dog walking will be minimum booking of 30mins (prep+walk). Additional charges apply for longer duration.

Marie is a really experienced dog behaviorist who took the time to understand Momo’s anxiety issues. We scheduled a walk to see if Momo would be a good fit to board at Marie’s place while we’re away. Marie gave us really great suggestions on the harness to buy and overall was very confident and calm in handling our dog.
