Meet Shannon


When I first got Des I remember holding him & telling him “I’ll never let anything bad happen to you”. Which is melodramatic but I meant it. I wanted him (and now Jupiter) to have the best life.

I started a business so my cherubs could live their best lives. They could get out of the house, experience the world, go swimming and running, make friends, pee on anything they wanted and spend time with me.

And I want that for other people’s fur family. When I worked in an office I felt so guilty that I was leaving him alone for hours on end and by the time the weekend rocked around it was chore city, not fun dog time city

That’s what Walks & Borks is about – FUN DOG TIME CITY!

It’s about your fur family. It’s about knowing that when you’re at work making that dog biscuit money, your cherub is out with their friends and being looked after by someone who knows what it means to be a dog mumma.

“That’s my SON you are talking about!!’ Me to the woman who looked at Des and said “AWW isn’t he ugly?!”

Never have I seen someone more confused.

Officially introducing our new apprentice and member of the Walks & Borks team; Jupiter!

This is his best picture – honest –  he doesnt stay still long enough for a good snap! 

Dog Parenting Made Easy

Stop the furbaby parenting guilt and relax knowing your best boy is living its best life. My job is to help you get peace-of-mind knowing your doggo is being loved and cared for the way you would love and care for by a fellow dog-mumma and all-round animal lover.


Shannon came to our house and met our baby boy and straight away we knew she was the real deal. She was so kind, passionate & obviously loved dogs. She gave us some really simple tricks to stop our Big Boy from detroying our house & also some tricks to make walking him easier too.
We found that her approach of “kindness” over “telling off” to train your dog was something we hadn’t come across with other dog trainers.
Shannon really cares about your pooch & wants desperately for you and your baby to live cohesively & have more fun together. She’s a real gem & and I can’t recommend her enough.
Thanks Shannon, looking forward to our next session.”

I highly recommend Shannon as a pet wedding attendant. I contacted her about 10 days before my wedding in a state of panic after my original plans fell through. I’m very particular when it comes to my furbaby. Shannon quickly put my fears and anxiety to rest after in depth phone calls, meet and greets and a play date. Her calm and positive personality was an absolute godsend on the day. I didnt have to worry about my Rusty who was ring bearer, dog of honour AND apart of our wedding photos.

Shannons highest priority was always our dogs welfare and happiness. Nothing was too much trouble and she followed the requested schedule and feeding routines immaculately. Rusty was so relaxed with Shannon despite all the activity of a wedding and she just has a way with dogs. I would never hesitate to recommend Shannon to anyone and everyone.

Shannon was incredible looking after our dog Murphy while we partied! She clearly loves animals and they love her – Murphy was so happy with her around! It was real peace of mind having her look after him and we knew he was having just as much fun as we were. Thank you!’-
