Enriching Solo dog walks for the shy, the nervous or sometimes reactive dog.

 Solo dog walks – 60 minutes or longer. Your dog will be walked by myself, Derek Chambers, with no other dogs and depending on temperament in quiet places around Finchley.

This allows your dog to receive my 100% attention to play games and have an enriched dog walk.  This will also allow them to sniff and decompress and support any positive training plans you have in place any training plans we come up with together.
