Walking Docklands' dogs

On the day that she met Docklands News Shontelle had eight dogs with her at Ron Barassi Snr Park.

“I worked in offshore oil and gas for years and a family member passed away a few years ago,” she said.

“I decided family and being near the people I love was more important than continuing to work my job and having to be away.”

Shontelle quit her job without having any idea what she would do next.

“The only thing I knew was that I wanted my job to be something I loved waking up to every single day,” she said.

A friend pointed out the lack of dog walkers in Docklands, and it all went from there.

“Now I have over 100 clients, doing dog sitting as well,” Shontelle said.

Shontelle walks from Yarra’s Edge to NewQuay picking up dogs on the way.
