Meet our team

Hello and Welcome

I’m Linda. Blessed to have grown up on the gorgeous Sunny Coast, surrounded by my loving, supportive family and friends. I am privileged to spend my days frolicking with packs of four-legged friends. Each morning I pick up my fur friends and feel like the most important person in the world. A wag of a tail, a lick on the face and deep stares straight into my eyes.

For the past 20 years, I have coached owners and their dogs. During this time I’ve seen how times have changed with regards to:

  • training methods
  • our understanding of dog behaviours, and
  • communication.

As a result, I decided to educate myself more in the above areas. Ethology and science based research are the foundation to my continuous learnings. In turn, my coaching methods are kind and positive.

Over the past 2 years, I have been entrusted with a part-time role as a foster mum for assistance dogs. This is a very rewarding volunteer position to say the least.

We are a small business so numbers are limited and means that your dog will thrive in our care. On adventure days:

  • dogs are off lead
  • free to be dogs, and
  • you can trust that I watch their emotional state and act accordingly.

I understand the importance of having confidence in someone to take care of your precious pup, especially when you can’t be there.

Talia

This is our fun-loving girl, who always stops to meet and greet every dog. Talia has grown up listening to constant dog tails tales and has been following me along to many a dog outing. We have shared our home and our hearts to training, minding and walking of dogs, and now doggie day care. We have also fostered many beautiful assistance dogs. Talia loves and embraces everything related to dogs.

Talia is currently:

  • developing her practical coaching skills, and
  • undertaking a dog walking, boarding and care accredited diploma.

The energy she gives to her canine friends is returned two-fold, with displays of pure excitement at the sight of her.

She is our resident dog walker, who is an amazing and confident handler. Proactive in reading dog body language and attentive to every dog’s individual needs.

I can recommend “a Talia” for every dog. With great doggy appeal, she is a real attention keeper and a constant entertainer.

Testimonials

As dog owners for over 30 years, sending our dog to a day out without us was a different experience for us. Ginja the kelpie was a young pup, full of energy. She had a few issues like barking in the car and not so good with recall. After only a few short weeks of attending Discodogs, Ginja now is a new improved dog. The barking in the car has stopped. She is happy to ride in the Discodog van anywhere Linda puts her. She returns now when called. If anything she’s become a social diva! Ginja loves going with Linda to Discodogs and we are so happy for her and it’s great to see the tricks she’s learnt and the friends she’s made. We often walk along our local beach and Ginja runs into her Doscodog buddies and have the best play. Love Discodogs, Linda and her team, and knowing we have fully qualified dog trainers who are invested in making the dog’s time with them a fun, positive experience is a dream.

Archie our 18 months old labradoodle sits every Friday at an upstairs window waiting for Linda to drive up in the Discodogs van.  From that moment on there is crying and whimpering whilst he dashes down the stairs to the front door.Even with his lead on he nearly pulls my arm off as he scrambles and launches himself into his cage in the back of the van. He has a fantastic time and he just loves it

Our BB ( Australian Cobber Dog- 21 mths) just loves her Adventure Day with Disco Dogs Noosa ! We wanted her to have a day away from us not only for outdoor exercise but also for the great socialisation opportunities…… she now has lots of furry friends and Linda ensures she has a day of physical and mental challenges in a fun and safe environment! The pick up / drop off service is a bonus too. We definitely recommend DDN for your pooch

Disco Dogs Noosa Adventure Days is such a wonderful, caring and unique opportunity for your dog.
From the moment I spoke to Linda I was very confident that great attention and care would be taken of my Cavalier (Mac) at the Adventure Days.  Her passion, knowledge and understanding of dogs is incredible.
Mac loves his days at Disco Dogs (which is so evident when he gets picked up in the morning by Linda or Tahlia) he is so excited to see them, he doesn’t take a second look back at us.  We also love thé fact that Mac is getting to mix with other dogs in a totally safe environment.

Disco Dogs Day for Raffa is his favourite day. His excitement when he sees Linda on Friday morning says it all.
A well supervised play date with his best mates is perfect for him, as he loves to play and interact with other dogs, however his enthusiasm sometimes needs restraining and Linda knows how do to do this.
Being able to  run free, chase ball and mess about is bliss for him while he is in a safe environment that offers plenty of challenges and a different routine.

On a practical level Linda provides an excellent service of pick up and drop off and is always close to time expected. Her experience and training is very professional and based on positive training methods.
It is the full package and I can confidently recommend Disco Dogs to you as a fun filled safe way for your dog to have a great day and for you to take the day off.

Thank you Linda for providing this much needed service in our beautiful Noosa Area.

Hi my name is Di Stewart. My dogs Gus and Mocha love their adventure day with Disco Dogs. They wait on Thursday morning for the Disco van and once spotted they bark and jump.and rush out to Linda . They have a wonderful day as seen through the photos on Instagram..They both adore Linda and their Disco day is the highlight of the week.Thank you Linda for looking after my beautiful boys so well.

Our Little Jazz has been going to Discodogs for some time now.  How she looks forward to it.  When Linda arrives in her Disco –van she is crying to leave us and have cuddles with Linda and get into her van.  There are no separation anxiety issues here.  In fact we feel quite unloved as she only wants to head off for her fun day with all of her furry friends.  Linda runs such a wonderful day for the dogs who have so much fun, and are so well looked after.  Thanks Linda

Jazz, Carol and John

I am very pleased to send this email re Disco Dogs.
Roxy’s day at Disco Dogs on Friday allows me to have a day to catch up on shopping etc. I can do this knowing she is safe and well looked after by Linda. Roxy is a nine year old toy poodle. She just loves her Adventure Day and being with all her doggy friends.Being picked up on Friday morning and dropped off in the afternoon is great for me as I do not drive. I heartily recommend Disco Dogs and so does Roxy.🥰🐩🐾

Can’t speak highly enough of Linda and DiscoDogs. My Lola has simply brilliant play days out with Linda and comes back exhausted and happy.

“Disco Dogs is the hottest dog minding ticket in town. Our high-energy viszla Daisy has grown up under
Linda and Talia’s gentle care and socialisation and is a better pup for it.

Each week Daisy cannot wait to join her friends for a day-long romp in the Noosa hinterland. She arrives home exhausted after her joyous and stimulating day on equipment and with toys, and the pickup and drop-off is super helpful.

Linda and Talia carefully choose their canine pack so we know Daisy is safe, with excellent mentors and manners. No words can fully capture how valuable Disco Dogs is to Daisy and our family. Thank you Linda and Talia!

We have a new addition to our family, we call him the favourite child. His name is Boston and he is not yet two. We are so honoured and thankful for disco dogs, our boy is super keen to see Linda pull up in the van on a Friday and hop right in for a day of adventure, open spaces and fun. Thank you for taking such good care of Boston and ensuring his day away from home is so enjoyable.
Can’t wait to see what 2022 has to offer all our fur babies with the new additions.
Thanks disco dogs !
