I've always been passionate about dogs and having had lots of dogs in my life since a young age, I have grown up to be a competent dog-handler. I have a Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) who I devote my life to, going for walks and working on her training and skills.
I have a lifetime of experience with dogs and 4+ years' experience of handling dogs with a strong temperament. I understand that each dog is different and embrace the traits of every four-legged buddy I have the pleasure of spending my time with.
Dogs I have owned: Airedale Terrier, West Highland White Terrier, Parsons Jack Russell, Neopolitan Mastiff, Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff).
I am experienced with aggressive dogs (people and/or animals), timid and anxious dogs and I am comfortable in applying balanced discipline to reactive or hyper dogs.
Dogs are very much my hobby at the moment which is something I'd like to change to a full-time way of life in time to come, specifically training and rehabilitation, which I have some experience of already.
** DOG WALKING**
Your dog(s) can be walked with or without my resident dog.
You can choose from 30 mins, 60 mins or 90 mins. Price listed is for 60 mins.
If regular walks are agreed, I will apply a discount via a custom-booking.
I will not let your dog off-lead during our walk but will make sure walks are in interesting places for him/her/them.
** DOG SITTING & BOARDING **
Dog-sitting can take place at your home or mine however I can only have one dog to sit at home due to my resident dog being here too.
If your dog is not dog-friendly that's not a problem as there will be kennel/run space for my dog during the day.
** TRAVEL **
If I am travelling more than 5 miles I may request a small supplement to the booking cost.
I have experience of treating diabetes in dogs so I am competent in administering insulin via injection and also medication.
