Hey everyone! I’m Natalie and I’ve been at PawPals since May of 2019.
I’ve had a love for animals since I was young, particularly dogs! My family has adopted adult/senior dogs since I was in primary school so I have grown up with them being my constant companions.
In 2018 I got my first ever puppy – a little Kelpie named Benji, who is now 22kg of brains, muscle, and mischief 😅 He has been my most challenging dog but also the one who had taught me the most! Because of him, I’ve learnt so much about canine enrichment, behaviour, nutrition and body conditioning. He’s my little ray of sunshine, I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
I started at PawPals doing work experience for my certificate II in animal studies and ended up being hired by the lovely Aoife and Laura. Without them believing in me, I wouldn’t have my dream job and I wouldn’t know half the things I know today!
This job brings me so much joy, I love how every dog at daycare has their own personality and that they all teach me different things.
Thank you to all you owners who trust us to look after your precious pooches 💖
