What I Do.

If there is one important fact I have learned in all my years as a dog walker it’s this – the key to a contented, well-rounded dog is exercise and at Finchley dog walker your dog will be entertained whilst learning, Whatever the weather your dog will enjoy calm walks play and brain work

All dogs, whatever breed and whatever size they benefit greatly from regular exercise which provides not only a physical benefit but vital mental stimulation too.  The transformation in a dog lacking in this to one which learns how to really enjoy being a dog is thoroughly heart-warming and when I can bring your pet back home contented, exhausted and fulfilled I know he will have enjoyed our time together as much as I have and this is my main aim.

Bespoke One to One and Small Group 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 need some basic training and a walk is ideal for teaching basic obedience in an enjoyable, non-stressful way. I incorporate training in on-lead, recall and other commands using a positive method only.

So I am pleased to be able to offer bespoke individual walks, tailored for you and your dog’s exact requirements so that I can do my best to increase your dog’s enjoyment on his walks.

Ruby has been transformed since Derek has started taking her out daily, I find him to be trustworthy, friendly and very accommodating even with all our last-minute changes and requests! I would not hesitate to recommend Derek to friendsBea. Buck
