How this service works.
contact me by e-mail or phone to organise a home visit, so that I can meet you and your dog to discuss exactly what your
needs are and how I can help you.
At this meeting I like to find out as much
possible about your dogs temperament and behaviour so you will be asked to fill out one of my questionnaires. Your dogs breed,
age and energy levels are all important factors that help us understand the needs of your dog.
I have met your dog I will then work out which group of dogs would most suit your dog to be walked with or if your
dog needs to be walked on its own.
The first walk
shall collect the dog from its home using its own lead as I find this helps to have its own familiar smell on it, then
he/she will be put in my specially adapted van on its own to then be driven to its walk. Once we start the walk I will
try to build a bond by lots of praising, playing and food treats so the dog becomes relaxed with me. The first walk
I shall keep the dog on its lead and assess its recall by putting him/her on a long line and keep calling him/her back to
me and rewarding. Once I become confident the dog is responding well to me I shall then let it off the lead providing
the owner has given me permission, but this is not usually done until after a few walks. After an hours walk the dogs
will then be taken back to their home. All contented and ready for a nice sleep.
