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 for, training and understanding your new puppy.

This is where Finchley Dog Walker can help. I have owned dogs since I was around 11 and have been a Profesional Dog walker since 2011. More recently have been studying dog training with the Dog Training College and Absolute Dogs.

In my experience, many new owners head to the internet for advice and support, which can be confusing, and some suggested methods aren’t correct or humane.

However, my Puppy care and Dog Ownership Support program can advise and support you through your journey of getting a new puppy.

New Dog Ownership Support

Finding a dog that suits you and your lifestyle is a key part of 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.

Our initial session can either be done via zoom or, ideally, via some visit. The in-house sessions will take you through choosing the right dog, the basics of dog ownership, how to prepare your home and any questions you may have

Points to take into consideration when getting a puppy

  • Are you ready?
  • What is required?
  • Exercise?
  • Socialisation?
  • What size?
  • Bitch or Dog?
  • What breed?
  • Which breeder?
  • How many?
  • Training?
  • House Training?
  • What if problems occur?

Accompanying you on the visit to the Breeder or dog Shelter

In addition to the New Dog Ownership Program, we can offer additional help with choosing your dog with an accompanied visit to the local breeder and ensure everything is above board and offer valuable advice. This means you can be sure you’re making the right decision.

The sessions offer advice and answer questions and will be additionally supported by email correspondence.

Puppy Ownership Support

Many new dog owners choose to get a puppy; 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 that you can reap the rewards.

The session covers the same principles of dog ownership but focuses on the differences between 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. Coaching sessions will help you tackle common training issues, such as puppy biting and heelwork.
