Insite Dog Behaviour Training

Dog Trainer

Do you want to come home to a well trained dog?

I am a dog trainer and I house sit for the purpose of dog training in your home. It is ok if you have other animals. A minimum of 4 days per sit.

The charges are;
$100 per day $150 for public holidays. This is negotiable depending on the length of stay and other jobs to be done. If under 10 days a $150 handover lesson.

I train your dog several times a day and this includes an updated training session with you on your return home so you can keep the dog's behaviour going.
Together we make a list of the behaviours you want me to work on; ie lead work, barking at the door, aggression and any other unwanted behaviours.
Travel is charged at $1 per Km from Waihi Beach

If there are other pets to care for this is approx $5 each - no training.

I have been a dog Behaviour trainer for over 25 years and love what I do.
I train using your dog's natural instincts no forced or harsh methods.
Please get in contact if you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Maree looked after my home and my fur babies for 3 days. I trusted her with my two dogs and cat and she kept me up tp date every day with how they where behaving. House was left lean and tidy and I would have her house sit for me again in the future.

Wow- Maree was fantastic, actually beyond fantastic she was exceptional especially with our dog Roxxi. She gave us great insight and training tips with our dog and spent time helping to train her. Truly remarkable! The house was spotless and her communication was brilliant. Highly recommend Maree for any house sit.

We returned to one happy cat who hadn't missed us at all! Thanks Maree for all the TLC

I felt very secure when I met Maree and knew that my precious cat Vincent and 3hens would be in safe hands . She also looked after my home perfectly and hope that she would consider looking after my home again in future . Thanks Maree..

Our first experience with house/pet sitting could not have been better. Maree was wonderful in every respect. She kept in regular contact and it was great to receive the photos/videos of our old dog, Jed. We returned after three months away to a cared for house and a very happy and fit dog who is missing his foster Mum. Thank you so much Maree.

So pleased to have Maree look after Tilly and Luna. They both loved the cuddles and were very well looked after. Returned to very clean house. Would definitely recommend and use Maree again in the future. Many thanks.

Maree was a great sitter! Communication was a breeze, she got on really well with the dogs, I got doggy pics while I was away and I came home to a lovely clean house! Highly recommended :-)

Maree was wonderful and it was nice to have someone who was very comfortable in a rural setting. Excellent communication. The cats loved having her here. We would not hesitate to use her again and would recommend Maree for any house sit.

Maree has always been our house sitter for quite sometime. We trust her and know that she is reliable and loves animals. Our house was clean and in great condition when we got home. Our plants are watered and Honey our cat is always happy when Maree is here. We thoroughly recommend Maree for house sits.
