As you may know, I have been training and caring for dogs for about 15 years now and have a huge amount of experience with a variety of dog breeds. Whilst on paper being a dog walker may appear simple, if done properly it is far from easy.
All dogs have needs and, like people, these differ depending on their life experience, personality and also genetics. Being a dog trainer enables me to be identify these needs to make safe and sensible decisions on where to walk the dogs in my care, how to group these dogs and also helps with areas such as difficulties walking on the lead and recalls etc.
During my initial consultations, I aim to find out as much as I can about your dogs strengths and weaknesses so I can make essential decisions on how their walks will be done. Dog walking is fantastic but isn't easy and dog walkers do need to have a high level of competence dealing with dogs to ensure the safety of those in their care is maintained.
