I have been a dog lover and owner for my entire life, one of my first presents as a baby was a Staffy named Tammy.
Over the past two decades, I have had six dogs. I have experience with large breeds such as American Bulldogs and pit bull types.
I am confident in handling poorly socialised and/or dog aggressive dogs as well as handling basic behavioral
problems such as leash pulling, jumping up, etc. When training I would advocate
positive reinforcement such as clicker training and would never use negative reinforcement or dominance based methods.
When visiting or walking your dog I will be focused on building a bond with your dog so you have someone to rely on, that your dog trusts, for that added piece of mind while you are away.
When walking I believe that dogs deserve both physical and mental stimulation whether
through play, social interaction or just to be given the time to fully explore the smells on a walk. I also like to help dogs stay calm and relaxed or just unwind from a walk with Tellington T-Touch Massage techniques.
I am respectful and attentive to any care rules or established routines you have for your dog and am happy to send you photos and updates on our walk or visit if you would like.
I am proud to provide an inclusive LGBTQ+ friendly service.
I cycle and/or take public transport to my bookings and so my service is environmentally friendly.
Amy was great, out dog is a bit more "difficult" and can be intimidating to people. He is a badly behaved 35kilo pitbull. We always have had such high anxiety when getting people to mind him. Amy really bonded with Django, enjoyed his company and we didn't come back to chaos. Would recommend her a hundred times over, and looking forward to availing of her excellent services again.
Amy house sit with our two young dogs. She responded very quickly to my request and was very punctual in all our meetings. My dogs are quite nervous around strangers, but it was obvious that they were comfortable around her from the first minutes.
Amy followed all my instructions, sent pics of dogs, informed when the medication was administered, and in general how dogs were doing. She left the house in the same state, and dogs were as their normal selves when we returned. Will definitely rebook Amy again! :)
