About Doggy Bliss

My love and passion for animals has led me to a wonderful career path where I enjoy every single day of my life.

I remember living in Sydney in the 80’s. In summer I used to walk the streets with a backpack full of water in search of thirsty street dogs. During the heat of the day I found some who were very happy to see me and to quench their thirst.

I now live in Adelaide where in the past 9 years I have found and rescued more than 100 dogs. I have chauffeured a few back to their home in my car. They all have been reunited with the owners. That makes me very happy.

I have been on TV and radio featuring and explaining the benefits of dog massage and good nutrition. I presented Dog massage and nutrition “BARF” Workshops at the Body Mind and Soul Expo and Animal Expo.

I am now looking forward to expanding my knowledge by keeping up to date with research on alternative procedures to assist our best friends live a long, healthy and happy Life.

Since I started Doggy Bliss, I had the pleasure of meeting beautiful and caring people who gave me the opportunity and trusted me to help and assist their beloved pets.

My quest is to continue my journey in the animal world and provide my love, knowledge and support to every one I meet.
