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 a vegetarian, non smoker (but am not fussy about cross contamination or handling meat/meat products for pets)
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.
I offer my services in the following Dublin postcodes: Dublin 7, Dublin 1, Dublin 3, Dublin 5, Dublin 9, Dublin 13, Dublin 17, Dublin 8, Dublin 2, Dublin 4, Dublin 6, Dublin 6W, Dublin 14 and Dublin 16.
Amy looked after our 3.5 year old husky/pitbull X for the first time last weekend and we are absolutely delighted with her. Mishka has a few issues with stress and anxiety, and Amy's calm and caring approach suited her down to the ground. We've already booked Amy to look after Mishka again in a few weeks
Amy was amazing with the dogs. She was respectful of my house and was extremely accomadating when I had to change the date. She brought them for walks too and sent pictures and updates on how they were. Overall I would 100% book Amy again and it was great to know my two doggies were well look after while I was away!
