Bella was a rescue dog and Dewi and Badge both farm dogs which we had from puppies. I was actively involved in each of their training and I have had experience working with behavioural problems. All three required extra mental and physical exercise as they were brought up in a family home as opposed to rounding sheep!
As an adult my partner in crime is Layla, a black Labrador. She is almost two years old now and she’s actually been the inspiration to me turning my career towards the care of dogs!
In addition to providing a dog walking service, I will also actively engage with any training or behaviour modification that you and your family are working towards. I can taylor my services to meet your specific requirements, but in summary I can provide;
Physical exercise -Running, walking or hiking
Lead training -Using the command ‘heel’ and a reward focussed teaching style.
Socialisation -Ensuring to encourage positive interactions with dogs and humans alike.
Grooming -& bathing as required for your breed
Mental exercise -including teaching of tricks and stimulating activities such as search and find games
Walks will be suitable for the age and breed of dog. I would initially offer a one to one walking service in order to form a bond. I would ask to come and visit you and your family. This will provide an opportunity to design a plan of yours and your dogs goals and needs.
On return from our walk I will always check that there is fresh water. Medication can be given if required.
I’m a registered mental health nurse and hold an enhanced DBS check for this role.
