Walking your dog is a one of the essentials of dog guardianship, but we realise that in a hectic world it is often necessary to get some regular support in walking your dog.

“We have many years of experience in walking all kinds of dogs from pups to older, tiny to extra large and importantly matching up their temperaments to make sure they have a fun and fulfilling time.”

Our dog walkers are all professionally trained and licensed in accordance with local authority guidelines.

In addition all our dog walkers have regular in-house coaching sessions with our dog behaviourist to promote continued professional development.

Dog walks are arranged with you, we offer individual and group walks, with groups no larger than 4, so that there is dedicated attention given.

Dog on Dog aggression is always scary for our dogs and for us.

Much dog on dog aggression is triggered by her stress and fear of a situation and her inablity to communicate how she is feeling in a way that other dogs understand.

It is an incredibly stressful time for a dog and it is the point where they can no longer cope with that extreme stress they will either flee, freeze…or fight.

There is much we can do to help this situation for your dog and for you.

“It will take time, patience and an open mind but by taking a mutli-faceted approach to working with the problem we will be able to help “

At the right time in the process we will introduce our Calm Pack Therapy sessions over a period of weeks and months.

In essence our Calm Pack Therapy is for dogs that are scared of the situation they find themsleves in and they do not yet know how to cope with this extreme stress.

We will introduce your dog to a small pack of especially calm and non reactive dogs at a pace that your dog will dictate.

She will work out for herself that her fears are unfounded and then start to learn from our calm dogs how to behave and react. Progress can be quick or take longer but as with us humans the only pace is the pace she can handle.

This is a key part of the process of building up self confidence and learning to commincate better with their own species.

Calm Pack Therapy Programme
This is a bespoke programme designed for dogs that are struggling in dog on dog situations, normally culminating in shows of aggression.
It is jointly carried out by Ian Karbaron (qualified Dog Behavioiurist) and Amy Scott.
Our goal is to desensitise a socially awkward dog by meeting a new and specially selected calm pack of dogs, at a pace that the fearful dog can cope with. We increase the interaction and bring in new dogs together slowly. This will increase their resilience to a stressful situation and enable them to learn for themselves that they can cope and hopefully enjoy dog to dog interaction moving forward.
Safety of all the dogs and guardians is paramount and we make sure that appropriate equipment is used and a safety first approach guides our approach and pace of work.

This package comprises of:
5 sessions lasting 30 mins., typically at week intervals .

Price starting from £300 is payable for this package.

What is the difference between a regular dog walker and our Dog Training Walks?

A regular dog walker will take out your dog by foot or car, sometimes with other dogs and keep them moving most of the time.

They walk. That works really well for most people.

However, if you are currently dealing with some unwanted behaviours or you know that your dog has not mastered some of the key cues that you want…then this will be for you.

Does your dog drag you down the road on his lead?

Does your dog ignore you when you try to get him back off lead?

Can your dog be reactive to other dogs or humans?

Do you feel out of control with your dog outdoors?

Does your dog never settle, and a bit too attached to you?

We all know the importance and fun of taking our dogs outdoors. It’s one of the many reasons we wanted to have them in our lives.

But for our dogs our world can be a bit confusing and scary, it can bring about unwanted behaviours that dampens the experience for them and us.

We offer dog walking with a difference…bespoke training built in so your dog will get it’s exercise when you cannot take them and at the same time build and reinforce a set of skills that will enhance your relationship and enjoyment with them.
