Welcome to idogwalkportishead
Established in 2014.
My aim is to provide a professional, friendly and reliable dog walking service in Portishead for clients who have to work during the day, owners who have busy lifestlyes or simply wish to enrich their dogs lives with a fun day out! A Good old blast in open countryside or a gentle ramble in the woods
I have over 25 years experience with dogs, having owned three of my own, a German Shepherd and two Labradors. I started dog walking full time five years ago and I’m currently studying dog training and behaviour, attending the Foundation for Training Instruction with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. I hold a certificate in Canine First Aid and have attended Trevor Coopers Law Seminar, a leading dog law specialist.
Rest assured, your dog will receive the very best care and will be treated as one of my own. I use positive reinforcement, force free training methods, and all dogs are assessed for suitablity to join me on my group walks. If for any reason your dog isn’t suitable for a group walk due to age, nervousness or flight risk a solo walk will be offered subject to spaces available. I walk in a variety of beautiful off road locations, perfect for dogs to run, explore and play in a safe stimulating environment. Your dog will be transported, safely and securely in my well equipped van which is fit for purpose and fully insured with electrical fan fitted to ensure the comfort and safety of you dog in warmer weather. I pride myself in what I do, I engage with your dog on my walks, interacting through games, play and training, building a unique and special bond with them.
After your dog has been walked, they will be washed down and towel dried before being settled home with fresh water and a tasty treat! Leaving you to get on with your day.
