Dog walking

Our solo or one to one professional dog walking service in St Albans can be tailored to meet your dog’s and your own needs and requirements.  We do not provide pack or group walks.
If you would like a dog walk that’s mentally enriching for your dog then we can practise things such as eye contact, loose lead walking and recall games. These examples incorporate training into the dog walk.
You may like a relaxing dog walk for your dog. This is where we can go to a quiet spot, let your dog off (if it’s safe to do so and with your permission) and let them have a wander round, exploring and sniffing out rabbit holes. We can place treats underneath leaves and ask them to find them.
With a dog walk that’s focused on exercise we can provide outlet’s for your dog to let off steam by sprinting and running round. It’s important with this one to talk to your vet about your dog’s health, fitness and age if you’d like this type of walk.
With a social dog walk we can practise controlled interactions such as meeting other dogs and people. Some dogs obviously like playing with all dogs while some prefer mixing with dogs that they know.

Our dog walking service is suitable for dogs including elderly dogs. If you’ve invested a lot of time and money in training your dog with life skills such as recall, you’ll know that consistency with training is imperative. Solo dog walks are more personal than dog group or pack walks and we as dog walkers can devote the time  attention and care your dog deserves. We’ve also invested a lot of time and money on training courses to ensure that we have tip top knowledge when providing a dog walker service to you and your canine companion.

Solo dog walking St Albans - Golden Retreiver

Choosing a dog walker can be quite a challenge but Lisa is just wonderful! She has taken the time to really get to know my dogs and to ensure that she can meet their individual needs. By offering solo walks (or two dogs from the same household), she is able to tailor her services to provide the very best experience for the dogs, instead of just taking out as many as she can and letting them just get on with it.

On top of this, Lisa is a true professional; having invested lots of time in formal education to ensure that she is up to date and genuinely knowledgeable about dogs. I absolutely trust Lisa with my dogs (not something I do lightly!) and they both absolutely adore her.

I would really recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a dog walker (although I would like to keep her secret really so that she’s available to take out my dogs whenever I need her!).
