What I Do.

Having been around animals most of my life especially rescue dogs (and cats) along with running my own dog walking business since 2011 I have learned one important fact– the key to a contented, well-rounded dog is fun and both physical and mental exercise. Here at Finchley dog walker your dog will be entertained whilst learning, Our enhanced dog walks combine play and brain work suitable to your individual dog, giving your dog the opportunity to use their brain on walks will mean they come back fulfilled, contented and pleasantly tired – and I know they will have enjoyed our time together as much as I have’

Bespoke One to One Dog Walks.

I know that, although dogs are sociable animals, not all of them cope well with being in a group and this could be for any number of reasons. Elderly dogs may prefer to walk without the distraction of younger dogs jumping around them while puppies can often get too excitable or too nervous which can prevent them from learning properly. Some dogs may benefit from some basic training and I can incorporate this into our walks. I use positive methods only and will follow any positive training program you have in place 

So, I am pleased to be able to offer bespoke individual walks, tailored to your dog’s exact requirements designed to increase your dog’s enjoyment on his walks.

 Derek is a wonderful dog walker who takes dogs out on their own, which makes him particularly well suited for dogs who are nervous of other dogs or just need a bit more personal attention. – The Finchley Vet
