There can be a lot of reasons why you may want to use our walk and train service. The most common reason of course, is when you have a new puppy and want to supplement the training you are doing at home. Another situation where you might use this service is if you have taken in a rescue dog and you want some additional training or to try and help your pet get out of previous bad habits. Or with new or old dogs you might be unsure of how to train a dog to walk on a leash and want it handled by a professional.
One of the principal advantages of using a walk and train service is that it saves time and allows your pet to learn quicker. It can be difficult if you are working long hours to make sure that your dog gets the right training, and with less frequent sessions, the learning process takes a lot longer too. One of our experienced staff will discuss training needs with you and we will put together a package that ensures that our work complements any training you are giving too. This makes sure your pet learns quicker and that training is not replicated.
As mentioned, we will discuss your requirements with you and draw up a fully customised training schedule to meet those needs. It could be that you want your dog to learn to walk using a specialised leash or a dog walking harness. Other training could be aimed at working with behavioural issues you would like to see corrected, for example, your dog constantly barking at other dogs or animals, or even at people. We try to eradicate any of these issues and also teach your dog the best levels of walking etiquette.
It may sound like a strange phrase, but if you think about it, there are many areas where you want your dog to exhibit good manners. Knowing how to walk a dog is just one of the skills we teach our staff. They also learn how to help dogs socialise, not to bark or growl at other pets or people they meet. Perhaps most importantly, our staff can help with toilet training so that your pet knows when to go and more crucially, where! By working on any problems you have identified, we can make you and your dog’s life better and happier.
