DOG
WALKS

I specialise in ‘Solo’ walks meaning its only your own dog or dogs that are walked at the one time, allowing me to tailor a walk to suit them. I understand the different needs a dog has, some dogs like a ‘sniffari’ where they can take their own time, exploring the world through their nose. Maybe it’s a run up the hills your dog wants, then that is where we go. Or perhaps they prefer their own space, and do not want to come across lots of other dogs when on walks, I can cater for that too.

 

Dedicating a walk, solely to your dog means you can be rest assured that your dog has all my attention, is well looked after and comes home to you relaxed, chilled and happy.

Please call 07979866222 to arrange a free consultation where I can meet your dog and discover all about him. The more I know, the better I can tailor your walk to suit your dog

CAT VISITS

& SMALL ANIMAL CARE

if you find you are having to leave your cat at home for a day or 2, I am happy to arrange visits to check, feed, clean trays and provide company. Having 2 cats of my own, I know how fickle and particular a cat can be and visits can be tailored to suit what you know your cat wants. I can also look after and provide care for small furries, rabbits, guinea pigs and others.

 

Boarding/Day care I regret I am unable to provide this service. It is something I would love to do and always try to help find a solution to your needs…perhaps one day.

DOG
TRAINING

At present, I am undertaking courses with ‘The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers’ and gaining understanding and experiencing dog training using ‘positive re-enforcement’ methods, whereby you add something, a reward to a behavior to make that behavior more likely to happen again. When walking your dog, I am happy to encourage and reward good behavior. These rewards are what your dog wants most. It could be a ‘high value’ treat, or a ball, toy or even praise and a fuss.

 

If you would like help in understanding ‘positive re-enforcement’ training techniques to help your dog in various ways, please ask. I am always happy to help and arrange 1-1 training session

FLYBALL

Both my dogs love flyball! A team sport, involving 4 dogs in a relay race, retrieving a ball, and bringing it back over hurdles. Your dog does not need to be the fastest or the smartest but it’s a fantastic way of keeping your dogs fit, building a bond and enjoying time together. Many dogs benefit from having some job to do and flyball fits the bill for many.  If you think this is something that you and your dog would enjoy, I am happy to give you more information and point you in the right direction.
