Our Services

 

Training

I firmly believe that the best method of training depends on the dog so each session is unique. What remains the same is that I provide a loving, happy, safe, and educational environment for dogs during their walks and training. 

Some of the training services that I offer/problems that I address are as follows:

  • Puppy training
  • Basic Obedience
  • Toilet training
  • Recall
  • On lead/off lead walking
  • Lead pulling
  • Aggression (towards dogs and humans)
  • Reactivity both on and off lead
  • Rehabilitating rescue dogs
  • Walking to heel
  • Jumping up
  • Chasing
  • Mental stimulation games
  • Scavenging 
  • Barking
  • Biting/stealing
  • ‘Bad Manners’
  • Socialising


House Sitting

Going away for business or for pleasure can be stressful when you have a dog, as finding someone you trust to take care of your pet in your home can be a daunting and unnerving experience. We hope to make you feel as comfortable as possible so that you can relax whilst away from home. No-one other than the person you have requested to be in your home will be there and your home will be exactly as you left it. Your privacy and dog's happiness is our utmost priority. 

 

Private Walks

If you would prefer that your dog is walked alone as opposed to in a pack then we are able to accommodate you. Should you require dog training, depending on the situation, I may join you on one of your walks to help you build a successful and positive relationship with your dog. 

Walks

Our group walks last between one to two hours. There is a maximum of four dogs per group and we alternate between parks including Kensington Gardens and Holland Park. I make sure that each group has dogs that are compatible with each other.

We either walk to the park or go in our van. The van is very secure with crates, comfortable blankets and towels if the dogs should get wet or dirty. We have water and organic home made treats on board as well. The van comes in handy if your dog is with us all day as it gives them a chance to have a well earned rest. The van has air-conditioning for the summer and there are electric blankets for the dogs in the winter. For safety reasons the van has no logo on the exterior.


Daycare

Should you have to leave your dog alone for long periods of time during the day then our daycare may be suitable for you. Whether on a regular basis or once in a while we are happy to have your dog spend the day with us and their doggy friends. 

Daycare is our most popular service. We pick the dogs up from 7.45-8.30am and the last walk finishes at 4pm. This consists of three walks, organic home-made treats and water. If it is raining them we supply towels to dry your dog, and we have blankets and toys in the van to keep them comfortable and entertained.

The dogs spend very little time in the van as they are joining us on our local walks, but as they are out with us all day, unless requested otherwise, the van gives them a comfortable place for a well deserved nap. They will be ready to greet you  when you get home, happy and tired. 

I cannot recommend Ria highly enough. She is deeply caring, warm and friendly. Full of good advice and help if things are tough and very very responsible. The whole family adores her and we think ourselves lucky to have her. My whippet cannot wait to greet her!

Boarding

Based in South London your dog will either stay with Ria or Julio, who conveniently live on the same street as each other. Both are fully canine first aid trained and Ria has her wonderful little dachshund Colin to keep your dog company. In nicer weather your dog will have access to Ria's secure garden. Your dog will have a home from home and will be treated as one of the family. The daycare service is included with boarding, so your dog will come out with us all day unless you request otherwise. You will get regular updates and you are also able to see how much they're enjoying themselves on Instagram and on this website. However, your privacy and your dogs safety is of utmost importance to us, so this depends on whether you are happy for us to do so.
