Finchley Dog Walking and Pet Care Services

services-web-banner-1024x577 Services

Finchley Dog Walker is owned by Derek Chambers and offers pet services in the Finchley and Muswell Hill areas.

Derek founded the business in 2011, and I have continued to further my animal knowledge over the last ten years. I’ve completed courses from the Dog Training College and learned T Touch.

I am also fully insured, DBS checked via the Scouts and trained in human and canine first aid.

Dogs are wholeheartedly my passion, and I love working with them. I have experience working with different dogs and am comfortable with any temperament or breed.

Solo Dog Walks

This is my speciality service. Having always owned rescues, some of which have been nervous, others have been reactive, I quickly realised that most dog walkers either did not want to know or did not have the experience to walk a shy and nervous dog or one that is reactive and needs enrichment on walks.

Please note that I do not offer group walks, just one-on-one ones. All walks are tailored to suit your dog, so they get maximum benefit.  Our one-to-one walks include

  • Brainwork
  • Sniff and decompress
  • Working on any training
  • Premium hypoallergenic dog treats

Solo dog walks are also ideal for dogs that are in season

Like all our walks, this is subject to our Extreme weather policy

Dog Walks For Older Dogs

As an owner of two older dogs, I understand they can be grumpy when younger dogs try to make them play; they want to walk slowly at their own pace with plenty of sniffs.

Sometimes they don’t want to go out and are happy to participate in brain enrichment games in the garden.

My dog walks for the older dog are perfect for this. I can also administer ear drops, eye drops, tablets, and injections.

Training Walks

Our training walks are ideal for puppies and high-energy dogs. These walks are often short, even just taking place in the garden. I can advise you on basic puppy training and then work with you on any training plan you already have.

When out on walks, I will do things like basic lead training. For full details of our working walk, check out Training Walks.

As well as training walks, also offer Loose Lead walking

Training and Socialising Walks for Rescues

This is a new service and part of our dog training services. The Training and socialising package includes six solo walks, with the last two being with the owner, where you get to see the methods we have been using with your dog and ask us any questions. This service also offers whatsapp support and more.

Weekend Walks

Weekend walks is a service designed for busy people who want to do chores while their dog is out of the way. This service is top-rated around holidays such as Easter and Christmas.

The great thing about Weekend Walks with Finchley Dog Walker is that they are at least 2 hours long for just £50.

 If you find yourself dealing with the aftermath of an illness or accident, you might find that you can’t give your dog the exercise it needs. That’s why I’m more than capable of providing you with the necessary support.

My service helps you by making sure that your dog stays active. I’ll walk them for you and make sure that your dog remains in good health and gets to burn off its energy without causing you stress.

Aided Dog Walking

 If you want to exercise your pet but don’t feel confident going out into the world, I can help. I am happy to walk your dog for you or come out with you so you are with a trusted and friendly face. If you’re not confident walking your dog, this is your service.

I’ve got plenty of experience handling rambunctious and energetic dogs, so I can help you gain some confidence walking your dog on the lead or practising basic recall.

Cat Sitting Service in the Finchley and Muswell Hill Area

While Finchley Dog Walker originally started in 2011 offering dog walking, I have expanded my pet care services over the years and, as of 2024, will be expanding our dog training.

One such service is my cat-sitting service. I worked for over 16 years for a company with Siamese, Devon Rex, and Sphynx cats that I looked after and even administered medication as one of them was a diabetic.

My cat sitting services are highly recommended, and references are available.  The most common questions we ask can be found on our FAQ page.
