"They say never work with children or animals. Before being a dog carer I worked as an Ofsted registered Childminder, taking care of all aspects of the children and babies needs. I received Good Ofsted reports for the nurturing care I gave the little ones, so rest assured my aim is to always provide gentle, loving care for your furry little baby.
In 2018 I made the next logical step into caring for animals (!) taking up dog walking and volunteering at a local cat sanctuary. I'm now studying for a Canine Behaviour Diploma and have received a Canine First Aid certificate. I can honestly say being around the happy, loving and fun nature of dogs, the exercise and fresh air, I've found dog walking to be so therapeutic.
Essentially, though, my aim is to work in partnership with you, using good communication to provide stimulating walks and high quality care for your dog"
I am a dog walker, not a trainer or behaviorist. I offer no-nonsense genuinely enjoyable walks, so though I keep an eye on your dog's behaviour and wellbeing, they don't need to mind their p's & q's. I see your dog more as a member of your family and don't try to give unnecessarily strict orders: If they want to bark, I'm not here to stop them communicating. Dogs can play rough and tumble as long as it's playful mutual enjoyment.
I want dogs to have the most freedom and fun as possible when out on our walks, that means they jump around in water, chase, play and generally be dogs. I feel fun and games is one of the best ways to channel unwanted behaviours. So, please be prepared for them to come home in all manner of states, including muddy, but hopefully exhausted and happy. If you do feel they need help with some of their behaviours, please seek help and advice from a behaviourialist.
I'm always prepared for your dog's needs, and ensure that your pet will receive the best care and love. Their happiness is my priority and I strive to provide a service I'd want my own pet to receive.
