Insured by PetPlan Sanctuary! Using positive reinforcement behaviour training methods, I am here to help you and your dog have the best life together possible. This starts with having a trusting relationship where the respect and knowledge of each other works both ways. Positive training focus' on showing our dogs what we want them to do and rewarding that behaviour- rather than punishing the behaviour we don't want. This force free training is especially suited to dogs that have fear and anxiety. It is a process that requires patience and consistency but is rewarded tenfold and doesn't risk causing further issues or damaging your relationship with your dog. With the knowledge you have of your dog and my observations, I work to help you better understand your dogs behaviour, and for your dog to better understand the behaviours you are asking them for. I can help to modify problematic behaviours and reduce stress for both you and your dog. I used to work in pets at home and previously had set up a pet service in London working part time/freelance as a fully insured pet sitter. However I have indicated 1 year in the business on bark to represent my new service 'Step Pets'. I am not new to being around animals, nor am I wary of any particular breed. I also have qualifications in pet first aid and theory of dog grooming. I have studied human psychology for years and researched animal psychology alongside in my own time. I recently left my doctorate course in Psychology to pursue working with animals because I have a passion for this type of work. You can be assured that I will put 100% of my effort into helping you and your pet achieve the best lifestyle possible and I will be available for ongoing support in between visits. Dog trainers primarily work around obedience but I am also comfortable working with fear related behaviours- particularly with rescue dogs or dogs with difficult backgrounds resulting in issues such as fear of strangers, fear of leads, collars etc. My extensive psychology education has given me a good understanding of how to implement positive reinforcement, positive association and training. Sometimes, behaviours can require veterinary intervention depending on the severity and their causes. I will always make it clear to you if i feel you would benefit from the input of a Veterinary behaviourist or vet and if i feel the situation is beyond my experience. Safety and happiness are my primary goals and I will redirect you to a more appropriate professional (e.g vet/behaviourist) if I feel it is required.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping owners to create a trusting relationships with their pets, allowing them to have the best pet owning experience possible. Animals bring so much happiness to our lives, and they deserve owners like you and people like me who want the best for them too. I love seeing owners joy and pride when their pets learn to notice what they're asking of them and act accordingly. I also love watching the bond grow throughout the process- knowing that i'm helping to facilitate that life-long relationship.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I actually left my doctorate programme in psychology to pursue this career so it is by no means something to just pass the time with.

I have had a passion for working with animals for years and have finally decided that I want to do a job that I love every day. I have seen the effect animals can have on our lives and our health and loved the idea of continuing to work with people and animals at the same time.

Why should our clients choose you?

I'm not just an animal person. To me, dog training is as much about working with people as it is about working with animals. Unless you are taking a dog into a training camp- this is a combined effort that relies on consistency. Thanks to my extensive experience working with people, including vulnerable people with mental health issues- I am very empathetic to peoples needs and non-judgemental of the circumstances people find themselves in.

Most importantly I always strive to learn, improve and develop. I treat dogs as if they where my own and their safety is my upmost concern.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I am well versed in using online services such as zoom and can do so if required. I can also prepare training timetables and am happy for us to video work with your dog for you to reflect back on if you wish to start face to face and then move online.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I will ask customers if they have had recent symptoms. If I have any reason to believe I have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus I will contact my clients to rearrange their upcoming appts and follow government guidelines

I completely understand that some issues are particularly present in the home. For that reason I am happy to continue home visits (due to gov.uk explaining this is allowed if working from home is not reasonable for the service). I will social distance, wash my hands regularly and have sanitiser to hand, use a face covering (we will establish first if this is safe in relation to issues around dog aggression). I have worked in health care environments previously and am well versed in infection control.

The price of hiring a dog walker will depend on the area of the UK in which you live, with prices typically higher in the South of England and particularly in London. The cost of hiring a dog walker will often be lower in the North of England and in Scotland and Wales.

The most important thing when you’re hiring a dog walker is that both you and your dog trust them. You should also ensure that your dog walker has public liability insurance that covers them in case of damage, accident or loss. The best way to find a reliable and trustworthy dog walker is by reading reviews of previous clients. When you hire a dog walker through Bark, you can browse the profiles of dog walkers in your local area and read honest reviews from genuine customers.

It is recommended that a dog walker should walk a maximum of four dogs at a time, to enable them to maintain good control of each dog. Most dog walkers will give you the option of having your dog walked alone or with other dogs. Walking with other dogs will help your dog to develop valuable social skills. However, if your dog is reactive, you may prefer for them to be walked alone.
