Dog Home School – Teach – Walk – Play A New Kind of Day care -dog walking with a difference
New Puppy? Teenage dog? Reactive dog? Bored Dog? I offer 2 separate services for you and your pet. The home school and a dog walking service.
This isn’t your average day care or dog walking service. I teach your dog in the comfort of his/her home or out on a walk. A combination of play, exercise, and learning, your dog will enjoy and benefit from these sessions whilst you are out at work or working from home.
Dogs and their owners will benefit from my unique Home School or walking service right through to maturity and beyond. I offer support and guidance from puppy to adult, so your dog is equipped with a strong and healthy mind able to cope with all the challenges of life.
The Home School
This involves me spending time with your dog at home working with him/her on the things they struggle with. Walks are included as part of a structured programme.
Puppies (roughly age 8 weeks to 6 months)
Raising a puppy is hard work and many people feel overwhelmed at times. Working from home now limits how much you can do with your pup.
I can spend time working with them at home too and teaching you how to help them. Understanding the developmental stages, what is happening with your puppy and learning how to teach and help them in a way that works for their personality is vital. Working with me means that I am also getting to know your pup and working with them and with you. I’m on hand to offer dietary and behavioural advice while we work together to develop a mind that is strong and stable and able to cope with all the world has to throw at them. I take them out and socialise them, teach them social skills and build their confidence.
Adolescents (roughly age 6 months -2 years)
Many people think that once their pup is a year old they have finished developing. In fact from the end of the first year right through to the third year there is a significant amount of emotional and neurological development. Your young dog is not being disobedient or naughty, he/she is struggling to make sense of how they are feeling. While I work with your youngster in Home School & out and about I will feed back to you what stage they are at and what we need to do to help them through it. This is a crucial stage and many owners feel boosted having someone to support them through this phase.
Adult dogs will benefit from the company and enrichment that Home School provides. As adults, we often think dogs have grown up to be content with whatever their situation and routine is. Although they do not need the same kind of support as youngsters, they do still need to engage in learning, play and companionship. We have fun learning tricks, do things to help and be involved with in the home, and play fun games to enrich their adult lives.
The Dog walking service is for dogs who struggle out and about with other dogs and things in their environment and for dogs who are just bored and need some thing to do while you are at work. I teach them life skills, play games and work on social skills while having fun out and about.
New and young puppies will also benefit as I take them out and about learning about the world, teaching social skills and building their confidence.
These dogs will benefit from expert help developing coping strategies and learning to manage their minds in the situations they find difficult.
These dogs must undergo a basic assessment prior to work commencing.
Basic dog walking is also available for dogs that just need some time, attention and fun.
For all services see notes on exemptions.
Home School and walking is priced at £14 per session. You choose how often your dog enjoys a session. Feedback, videos, and information for you to continue his/her learning when you are at home are included. Assessments are £20.
