'Dogs are for life, not just Christmas'
I have an undesirable love for all dogs and my dream would be to run my own doggy day care business!
Even though I have only had 1 dog in my lifetime, he can be easily compared to Marley from the film 'Marley and Me' as he is the naughtiest, greediest, goofiest dog I have ever come across. That being said, he is also the most gorgeous, sweetest dog and I have loved watching him grow from a puppy into an... older puppy! (he is now 11 years old..)
Having grown up with my my lovable Chocolate Labrador, Monty, I feel that I can handle any kind of dog that comes my way, especially when it comes to walks. I know how to cope with extremely strong dogs that pull on walks and how to use incentives to keep them close or get them to come back. Safety always comes first so depending on the dog and their experience, I would generally keep them on the lead near roads or residential areas and off the lead in open spaces. However, I understand that each dog and their owner is different, and I can adapt easily to this.
I have lots of knowledge on the animals themselves as I like to read about them in my spare time. I have also had the pleasure of looking after some of my friends dogs so I have experienced looking after lots of different characters!
I am looking to do dog walking only as I have recently moved out of my family home and left my lovely Monty behind, so I currently rent a room in a house share and miss being around dogs! I can ensure that I will look after the pooches to the highest standard!
