About Me

Barnitt Perfect Pets

I am originally from England, then lived in New Zealand for 14 years before moving to Perth in 2005.

I have worked as a vet nurse and dog trainer for the past 17 years, and have taken puppy classes for the whole of that time. Before that I was a secondary school teacher.

I have owned and trained dogs, both large and small, since 1997.

Between 2010 and 2012 I ran a small dog daycare at the vet clinic I worked at in South Perth. When I changed vet nursing jobs I had to stop my daycare business. I am in the process of leasing a building to start a new dog daycare business.

In 2008 I got a rescue dog and when he went to the groomer he became very stressed so I decided to start grooming him myself. I have owned my other rescue dog for 4 years and groom her as well. I have completed my grooming certificate and will be setting up a grooming salon in the dog daycare building.

Because of the combination of my vet nursing & dog training skills and also because I own a “special needs” dog, I feel that I understand how stressful being groomed can be. I aim to make the grooming experience pleasurable.
