A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I am a semi-retired massage therapist. When I'm not working I can be found in unique locations, walking my dog Arlen. Arlen is a reactive, senior, bully breed who cannot cover as many KMs as I can in a day.
I have dedicated the extra space in my days to educating myself on canine behaviour. I advocate for humane, fear free and evidence informed treatment. My dog walking style puts an emphasis on enrichment and positive mental stimulation. I use a 30 foot leash to allow freedom in the environment. I use treats and positive vocal reinforcement to reward good behaviour. I avoid dangerous settings and redirect attention when required. This type of walking is known as a decompression walk (Sarah Stemming). DW’s serve as vital stress relief and can facilitate improvements in a dog’s behaviour health.
You can feel good about hiring me to walk your dog. I am professional, reliable and punctual. I will treat your dog as if they are my own, and if you were to ask Arlen, He’d say that’s pretty paw-some!
