Dog Ownership & Support Sessions

Owning a dog is a big responsibility and for new dog owners it can be a challenging time. However, dog ownership should be an incredibly rewarding and fun experience, if you find the right dog to suit your lifestyle and the correct advice on caring, training and understanding your new pooch.

This is where Finchley Dog Walker can help. I have spent over 20 years working with dogs and recognise there is definite need for help and support with new dog ownership and dog rehoming. Many new owners head to the internet for advice and support, which can be confusing and some suggested methods aren’t actually correct or humane.

However, with my new Dog Ownership Support programs you’ll find the right advice and support for getting to know your new pet, with a range of packages designed to help you and your dog become content, healthy and well disciplined.

New Dog Ownership Support

Finding a dog that suits you and your lifestyle is a key part to an enjoyable ownership for you and the dog. Finchley Dog Walkers’ New Dog Ownership Support offers the advice and support you need for owning a dog, be it a rescue dog, puppy, pedigree or mixed breed. The in-house sessions will take you through choosing the right dog, the basics of dog ownership and how to make the rehoming transition as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

We’ll be on hand to answer any questions you may have and there will be follow up email support after the session.

New Dog Ownership & Visit to Dog Shelter

In addition to the New Dog Ownership Program we can also offer additional help with choosing your dog, with an accompanied visit to the local animal shelter. We will offer you the same support and advice for choosing the right dog for you, the basics of ownership and the rehoming transition, but we’ll be with you when you meet the dogs to offer valuable advice. This means you can be sure you’re making the right decision.

The sessions are to offer advice, as well as answer questions and will be additionally supported by email correspondence.

Puppy Ownership Support

Many new dog owners, choose to get a puppy and whilst they’re full of energy and incredibly cute, they can be hard-work. But at Finchley Dog Walker we offer Puppy Ownership Support that will help you put the right training and commitment in place from the start, so you can reap the rewards.

The session covers the same principles of dog ownership, but has an additional focus on the differences of owning and training a puppy.

Puppy or Dog Owner Additional Coaching

It’s perfectly normal for there to be teething problems during the rehoming process, but you shouldn’t let them get you down. With coaching sessions, we’ll help you to tackle common training issues, such as puppy biting and heel work. As a small group session of 2-4 dogs, we’ll answer your queries and provide you with on-hands training and advice throughout.
