If your pooch(es) need a bit of exercise and fun, I'm happy to oblige! We'll go for an energetic walk for 20-30 minutes, during which I'll reinforce their good manners and training. If you won't be home during my visit, we'll discuss arrangements that will ensure your home's security. My visit is all about your pet, so my focus is on making it a wonderful experience and giving them a lot of attention and engagement. I'll refill the water bowl, make sure they have food if they free-feed, and bring in any parcels that may have been delivered in your absence. I'll also let you know how our walk went and send you photos of our adventure.
For their safety and my own, I do ask that pets be trained to walk on a leash (no pulling) and, if I'm walking two dogs at once, they should be well-behaved when walked together. If you're still working on leash training with your pooch, I totally understand. I'm happy to help reinforce that training during our walks with gentle verbal cues and behavioral training techniques that align with your own training approach. Most dogs are fast learners, so they'll catch on in no time. :)
I'm an experienced petsitter and dog walker, as well as a dog owner for many years. I've also worked as a dog trainer and a professional pooper scooper (yep, that's a real thing)! I'm also a freelance 3D/graphic designer and writer/editor, which means I sit and stare at a screen a lot! Dogwalking helps me get out of the house and get some good vitamin D and exercise. Plus, I get to hang out with some of the happiest creatures on earth--DOGS! It's a win-win. :)
I worked as a professional dog walker while in university for several years. I've also volunteered in programs that help keep kids in school, so I have a current Working with Children Check.
