Dog and Puppy Training in Chelmsford and across all of Essex
dog walking and dog sitting
Most experts agree that we shouldn't leave our dogs on their own for more than 4 hours at a time on a regular basis. Unfortunately, with increasingly busy life styles, longer and longer working hours and with the best will in the
world, this is not always practical or possible.
Like us, dogs are highly sociable and most do not like being left for long periods of time, and in some cases, suffer from separation anxiety, which may manifest itself as unwanted behaviour such as howling, destructiveness and so on.
Owners themselves may also feel stressed when they have leave their pet for long periods of time. Particularly if it also means not being able to give your canine family member as much exercise as you'd like to.
The answer for many is to use a dog walker.
Here at it's a dog's life we don't simply walk your dog. We break up your pets day with a good walk and plenty of opportunities to have fun and socialise with other dogs and humans. We even have a small agility course for extra entertainment!
As a professional dog trainer I can also lend a hand with training, such as recall.
Additionally you can also feel safe knowing I have a Canine First Aid qualification and that we have specialist canine insurance for Care, Custody and Control for you pet.
We provide flexible packages to suit the needs of you and your pet, such as -
on or off lead walking
one-2-one or small group walks
from once a week to every weekday
safe transport for your dog
* we are pleased to offer off lead walking following an assessment of your dog’s recall level, and with of course your permission.
When dropped home we’ll give him a good rub-down leave him as clean as possible, depending on the weather! We’ll leave him with fresh water and feed if requested
Our prices are dependent of your requirements which we can discuss during our free initial assessment meeting, and range from £12 - £16 per hour
Your dog will spend the day in our family home, with a secure garden, fed as per your instructions and will have at least 1 hour's walk. We can talk through all the options during our first meeting.
