Dog walking

Does your dog show reactivity signs and bark or lunge at other dogs and display signs that they’re nervous and uncomfortable around them? They will need a dog dog walker who is calm, patient, understanding and trained in canine body language, as well as professional and focussed. Would you like a dog walker who understands the importance of using management techniques to lower stress outside of your dog’s training to reduce set back’s while they are showing reactivity?  We can visit a spot in the Hertfordshire countryside and wander round with your dog allowing them to explore and sniff important locations such as rabbit holes and watch triggers from a safe distance so they feel secure and not overwhelmed.

This is the benefit of a solo walk – the focus can be solely on your dog – there is no multi-tasking that is associated with pack walks. With pack walks other dog’s in the park may illicit attention from other dogs in the park meaning that they come and see your dog which your dog may not be comfortable with.

Our solo or one to one professional dog walking service in St Albans can be tailored to meet your dog’s needs and requirements and preferences and customers tell us that our solo dog walking service is more personal than group walkers they’ve used in the past as we can devote the time attention and care your dog deserves.
