Leanne Carney – A Dogs Life

Originally from Adelaide, Leanne has been involved with dogs for over 25 years. As the owner and breeder of Bearded Collies, the dogs were successful in Obedience and the Show Ring, winning many ribbons resulting in producing an Australian champion winning Reserve Challenge at The Royal Adelaide Show.

Passionate about animal welfare, Leanne spent time working at the RSPCA in Adelaide before moving to Melbourne in 1989.

As a pet parent to Harley, a six year old Havanese, it was his inspiration, that created the motivation to learn more about the health and wellbeing of dogs.

After completing Certificate 3 in Training and Behaviour with National Dogs Training Federation, Leanne went on to not only learn Pet CPR and First Aid, but felt strongly about being able to teach others these life saving skills for their pets, and became an instructor with Pet Tech.™
