I've had dogs for most of my life. The dogs I have experience with are medium/big dogs --Alaskan Malamute, Golden Retrievers. I've realized that the reason they bring me so much joy is because it doesn't take much to keep them happy. Just being able to go outside or spend time with the people they care about is enough. Seeing them happy makes me happy, and helps to relieve stress as well as bring joy to the lives of those around them. I recognize that dogs need a lot of exercise in order to maintain a healthy behaviour, and if needed, I will be able to train your dog(s) to walk at a desired pace while getting their exercise done or just have some fun chasing some toys!
I currently do not have the space for my own pet, so would love to help take care of yours which will be a win-win situation for me and your pets! I find that generally, most pets warm up to me really quickly and we can definitely do a meet and greet to see how things go.
My availability varies depending on the proximity of your place and my time schedule. Usually walks could be in the mornings or late evening. Please feel free to message me and I look forward to hearing from you!
Nicole is great! We have two medium/large dogs who are rescue husky mutts. They are very active and can be difficult to handle while on their walks, but Nicole managed them well. She arranged for a meet and greet first to ensure it would work for everyone, and then walked them for us many times. Communication was great, and she was very dependable. I would definitely have her walk our dogs again!
Great to work with
Having more than one dog myself, I am confident I will be able to handle at most three dogs, and would be able to walk two/three at a time, depending on how much they have been trained.
I am also able to offer a bit of dog training, and will be able to teach some neat little tricks like, roll over and play dead (though these take time). Basic training would also include walking at a certain pace, sitting and staying.
