Working Walks – Training Walks

Do you have a Dog that needs High Energy Walks? If you find that you spend most of your dog walking time playing fetch, or go on frequent daily walks, but you can’t seem to tire out your pooch, chances are you have a “High Energy” dog. This type of dog can be fun to be around, but training them is usually more challenging. Energetic pets are loved for their happy temperaments and huge personalities, but many owners give up on the training of these hyperactive dogs. Why exercise is important All dog owners know that daily exercise is important...

Weekend Walks

Saturdays and Sundays . . . .weekend fun days with  Finchley Dog Walker A dog is a man's...or woman's best friend, but as we all lead increasingly busier lives the long walks you once had with your dog can get shorter and shorter as you time becomes stretched. Weekends can be very precious time for people, in the working week there seems to be not enough hours in the day to complete jobs like cleaning, shopping and catching up on well-earned sleep, so they tend to be put off till weekend.  Many of these tasks especially cleaning are much better...

Dog walks for the Ill or Infirm

It is an unfortunate and inconvenient fact of life that sometimes life deals us a rubbish hand and we can become ill or incapacitated. Accidents or illness can strike at any time and leave us struggling to carry out day to day tasks.

Coldfall Woods

A Regular Haunt is Coldfall Woods One of the reasons I started this business as a London dog walker was because along side a passion for dogs, I’m also a great lover of the outdoors. Recently I took advantage of a nice sunny Autumn day and decided to go on one of my favourite walks to date: Coldfall Woods. As a child I was often in these woods; running, exploring, finding adventures - as my childhood home was close by, in Muswell Hill. When I have the opportunity, and it’s feasible to, Coldfall Woods is often visited by me when...

Aided Dog Walking

Walking your dog is one of the best things about dog ownership. If you have a busy and stressful life, walking with your dog can be one of the greatest tonics there is. However, there are dog owners amongst us who are unfortunate to have limitations on their abilities to cater for all needs of their dogs, and this is no more apparent than when it comes to walking your dog. If you are struggling or unable to walk your dog (maybe you are physically limited or you simply aren’t confident enough to walk your dog alone) then I can...
