Finchley dog walker – a qualified dog walker and pet professional
We all wish we could be with our dogs more and give them the exercise and company they need during the day. However, our busy schedules don’t always allow this. Maybe you have to go into the office every day or even just once a day? Maybe you have to lock yourself in the attic office whilst doing online zoom meetings.
Whatever the case and you are thinking of hiring a dog walker to help you out, you must do your homework and choose the right dog walker for your requirements.
Secondly, as they will be entering your hoe possibly whilst you are out it is important to make sure they have a DBS – Derek Chambers has an enhanced DBS with the scout association
Thirdly – Do they have first aid training to be able to with emergencies and simple injuries that may happen when out – especially with working dogs that love to explore
Fourthly – are they members of any pet professional organisations. Finchley Dog walker is a Gold Member of the Pet Professional network and as a result, has undergone varies checks
Fourthly what experience have they had and what training. Derek Chambers has been brought up around dogs since he was 10 and most of them have been rescues. As well as having dogs for over 30 years for the last 6 years or so Derek has helped with tip Top Dog Training school as an assistant. You can also see our testimonials
More recently Derek has been building up his CPD hours in the world of Dog Care and Training and working towards a Level 3 Diploma of Canine Body Language Specialist with the Dog Training College and Reactive Dogs
A good dog walker should keep up to date with modern positive training techniques and be able to understand the dog’s body language
Below are my more recent training certificates

The following modules are all part of the canine body language course I have done so that I can understand and read your dog’s language whilst we are out on walks
