Trainee Puppy Trainer

Kira is the youngest member of our team, with the biggest heart. She has a love for ALL puppies, especially rescue pups that have had a hard start in life. Watch out, Kira is a professional puppy cuddler and might sneak your puppy home if your

not watching. 

At home you will find Kira making a mean coffee, or she can make you one at the SMAK coffee van, all while dreaming of her mastiff she wants to own

one day.

Kira is currently completing her Certificate II in Animal Studies and is our Puppy Playgroup teacher.



Puppy Trainer, Veterinary Nurse

Savannah is the newest member of our team, and we are so excited to have her. 

Sav has worked locally as a Veterinary Nurse and Puppy Trainer for 5 years. Her future goals are to work within the RSPCA Cruelty Investigation Team and with dangerous dog behaviour work.

On her days off you will find her either dancing up a storm, or walking her crazy fur babies Callie the whippet and Pablo the Jack Russel X. Sadly her pups are not into dancing..

Sav holds her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and is currently studying her Certificate IV in Behaviour and Training through the Delta Institute, due to be completed in 2023.
