Elite One Session Training Services Using Your Voice As The Remote Control For Your Dog! Its a unique communication method. This is unique as it is a language course for you and you dog. Its a training session like no other!! My clients are amazed at the RESULTS THAT ARE ACHIEVED IN ONLY ONE SESSION!- (see genuine verifiable reviews from Bark.com clients) When comparing trainers please check number of reviews they have on Bark.com but also the number of hires on Bark.com . I specialise in elite and ground breaking fast moving 1:1 training and behaviour modification sessions. I guarantee results in your first session. If you are not totally impressed you can have your session free! If you are looking for the best results driven training in the fastest time then please let me know. I teach you how to talk to your dog so that your dog understands you, and how to understand how your dog thinks -it truly works! Sessions are £50 only!! This is much cheaper than my competitors. If you can find a trainer that will achieve results I one session let me know and I will price match and give you an extra 10 % A £25 call out fee for all journeys over 1.5 miles will be required. You usually will only need one session no matter how extreme the behaviour. No separate consultations and courses made up of many sessions that drain your finances. One competitor charges £2600 for agression training and their basic training course is £500 My sessions are even cheaper than a course of puppy classes. My training and behaviour modification is loads of fun, full of compassion, packed with empathy and loaded with insight into how a dog thinks with no treats!! If you are considering making an enquiry please only ask me to contact you if you really are committed to going ahead with training for you and your dog. My methods are so effective all ages and every type of negative behaviour can be modified. As an example of my method I even demonstrate that dogs and cats can not only behave well together but follow instructions together with no treats. Please see video below "Cats and dogs know their names". Just look at Bark.com client"s reviews if you are in any doubt. Please note clients are requested to ensure ample time is allocated on the day of their session to emerse themselves in what they are about to learn. This training session is results driven not time driven but there is always a usual progression to a natural end point which is come to by all, including your dog. It is a one session program so differs to a normal approach to training which is always a course of sessions and therefore always much more expensive as well as time consuming. Look forward to meeting you Best regards Paula Dog Walkers N8☺ My services and areas I cover Dog Walking in Alexandra Palace, Highgate Wood, Priory Park, Queens Wood & Hampstead Heath Dog Boarding- North London Dog Day Care- North London Dog Behaviour Modification -I cover London and in and around M25 Residential Behaviour Modification- Nationwide Cat Behavioural modification -We cover London and in and around M25 Cat Sitting - N4, N8, N10, N5, N22, N15 Pick Up & Drop Off Service- N4, N8, N10, N5, N22, N15

Jack's Pad

Jack's Pad

Leaving your dog in the care of others is always a hard prospect to deal with. Especially when that dog is more than just a pet, it’s part of your family! Whilst you’re working, away or just need your dog walked during the day the main aim is for your dog to be well cared for, socialised, exercised, stimulated and above all loved whilst in our care! Jack's Pad offers long morning walks on Hampstead Heath which provide a wonderful mixture of woodland and fields for your dog to stretch its legs and a variety of ponds to splash about in. I am aware that this can be too much for puppies and older dogs so I also offer walks in Queens Wood and Highgate Woods. Catering for all your dogs needs is extremely important. I will make sure they're relaxed and happy during their time in my care. Having owned dogs throughout my life I am well aware of how hard it can be to find someone you trust to look after the needs of your dog, rest assured love and care is in abundance at Jack's Pad Jack is always happy to welcome friendly dogs into his home although I do require a polite meet and greet with any potential visitors to allow the dogs to get comfortable with each other.. I don't take any more than three large dogs at any one time for boarding and i ask that all adult males are not intact and bitches are not in season. This stops any dominance and aggression in the pack.

During this first meet I take you through a detailed questionnaire to learn about your dog’s likes and dislikes and to gather all contact information, including your vet’s, in the unlikely case of an emergency. I always ensure there’s plenty of physical and mental stimulation for the dogs, ensuring your friend returns well exercised, happy and calm. Areas covered include Hendon, Willesden, Kensal Green, Kensal Rise, Queens Park, Maida Vale, Kilburn, West Hampstead, Hampstead, Cricklewood, Dollis Hill and more. I am fully insured by a specialist pet care insurance including public liability and looking after keys. "I’m not sure there’s a more devoted, loving, enthusiastic dog handler in who’s hands you could leave your dog. My Beagle absolutely loves being with Alex and her pack, and I know when they are together she’s going to get great walks, lots of cuddles and I could not ask for a better or more reassuring service." - Rebecca and Brie

Kat Dog

Kat Dog

Walkies & Daycare Experiences "The ultimate doggy dream" By Kat Butler, Brentwood, Esssex ABOUT MOI You may be sceptical, yes, my name is Kat but surprisingly I get on famously with dogs! It’s sad to say I actually prefer dogs to humans (sorry owners!). Dogs are a wonderful thing and as long as I’m around them and giving them a good time, life is pretty much complete. I’ve had a dog walking pet sitting company previously in Hornchurch. A Walk In The Park it was called, so original I know! This was after studying Psychology at University and following that I’ve worked with children, young people and adults with special need, disabilities and mental health issues. I truly believe in the joy and happiness dogs give and see that they are a cure for so many things. Did you know having a little stroke releases lovely dopamine to our brains to make us feel good?! I’ve now decided to knuckle down and get a real job- so obvs dog walking sprung to my mind! So here I am now, have a look through my site, you’ll soon get the gist as its laid out in a menu theme! Any questions, just drop me a line (what does that even mean?!).

Dogbliss Dog Daycare and Dog Walk

Dogbliss Dog Daycare and Dog Walk

Dogbliss Dog Daycare and Dog Walk is verified Certificate of Excellence 2015

Experienced, personal, fully insured dog care by a positive dog trainer. Dog walking, dog daycare & boarding in East London covering E1, E2, E3, South E9, E14 Dog daycare and boarding for SMALL/SMALL-MEDIUM DOGS (up to 25-30lbs) I began dog walking and sitting in 2014 and launched Dogbliss in 2015 to take care of all dogs as I do of mine. My life pretty much revolves around dogs and have owned dogs for 25 years, I have a beautiful adopted mongrel Zsozso who is my whole world. I used to be a foster carer for shelter dogs who need a lot of love and care. Zsozso is a Pets as Therapy dog and we now volunteer at Homerton University Hospital RNRU ward. I take what I do seriously, I am a clicker trainer, Agility Club Approved Agility Instructor and Pet First Aid qualified so your dog is in safe caring hands I became interested in dog training when I adopted Zsozso 10 years ago. We had a hard time bonding or communicating so we went to what turned out to be the best dog school((Nepszigeti kutyasuli) in Hungary (founders of Mirror Method) which was our second home for the next 3 years. I attended their advanced trainer course while I was working as an assistant trainer and Zsozso and I passed their so called E5 exam (it is an obedience exam level 5 of 9). We were also members of the school’s Performance Group – performing in festivals, schools and dog events. In the meantime I was fostering and volunteering for the dog shelter where Zsozso was from, helping to find homes for 10 rescue dogs. After moving to London we started to train agility and now we go twice a week to Trent Park Agility Club and Elmtree Training Centre. Please feel free to contact us. Reference ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I am very fortunate to have found Dogbliss when moving with my mini-poodle from NYC to London. Boroka is incredible, not just with my little guy, but with all of the dogs that she watches. It’s comforting to know that when I’m at work all day or on holiday, my little guy is being taken care of with plenty of cuddles and plenty of park time as they go to the park everyday to play ball for several hours, which means he’s happy to chill with me after work because he’s had so much fun all day. The best part is seeing his tail wag non-stop every morning when I walk him to daycare and he runs right to Boroka without giving me a second look. That right there tells me how happy he is and that I made the right daycare & pet sitting choice. We’ve been going to Dogbliss Monday-Friday for a year now and wouldn’t have it any other way.” Jasmine – owner of Little AJ, January 2017 on google.co.uk ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “When I leave my dog with Boroka for a walk or for day care he’s so happy! He runs up to her with his tail wagging and can’t wait to spend the day with his buddies. It’s gives me peace of mind to know he’s with a trustworthy and highly trained dog guru, who will look after him like he was her own” Emily – owner of Obi, December 2016 on google.co.uk
