Dog Walking

I specialise in bespoke cost effective, solutions to your pet care requirements.

Both walking and dogs have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Dogs are an important part of the family, and need good quality care for when you cannot be there yourself.

Team this with the growing obesity problem in dogs that we are all being aware of, additional walks can ensure your dog gets the exercise they need, or provide stimulation when you are out at work all day. I want to provide a modern solution to this problem by offering tracked dog walks that can then be used to chart your dog's progress, fitness and tailor their diet accordingly.

Think of it as fitbit for pets. Reports show the length of walk, the location, the time taken, you can even live track walks via the walkers GPS location device. Daily reports – include places walked, dogs encountered, playmates found, training tasks, etc. The GPS location route will be viewable via a private link… sent directly to your phone so you can browse when convienient your pet's progress. Regular clients enjoy daily digital images of their pets having fun included in the walking fee.

Training walks

Training walks are one to one training sessions incorporated in the dog walk. Using a range of positive behaviour modification techniques and consistant training on walks can make a world of difference. Training walks often include the owner to ensure lessons are carried on in a consistant way.

These are used if you have unwanted bahaviour you want to modify. For example dogs have to be taught to walk nicely on leash. They’re not born knowing that they shouldn’t pull ahead or lag behind. Teaching leash manners can be challenging because dogs move faster than us and are excited about exploring outdoors. Other aspects such as barking at other dogs, fearful or agressive behaviour can also be worked on during these sessions.

Please note though that you will probably end up coming along to at least a few of these sessions. It's often as much about training the owners as it is the dog.

Puppy Daycare

Bringing home a new puppy is so exciting! The trouble is, this can also lead to torn shoes, random potty stains and other bad habits! During their early months, good habits have to be learned. Your puppy needs consistency, routine and attention. Not to worry! As dedicated and trained sitter I will customize a feeding, exercise and training schedule just for your pup. This is suitable for pups up to 8 months old. Owners will get a daily report of progress, and a weekly training report.

Doggy Days Out

Suitable for adventurous dogs wanting to get away for the day. A trip to the seaside, the forest, hill walking or even kayaking this gives an opportunity for your dog to have an adventure while you unfortunatly have to go to work. All doggy adventures have live tracking and regular photographic updates so you can look enviously on at the fun they are having on your lunch break. An end of day report will also detail the fun we had.
