Peter handles Kane professionally. Kane can be a real handful as he is high-energy and selectively dog-reactive, but Peter knows how to assert himself appropriately so that Kane makes smart choices.
Peter has reliably walked our dog and our foster dogs over the past three years. He is conscientious, punctual, and diligent in his care of the dogs, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for care of their pet!
Can give long walks too.
Monday-Thursday: All day.
Friday: Mornings only.
Sunday: All day.
- Most of my experience is with medium to large dogs, but I don't mind small dogs and am happy to gain experience with >100lb giants.
- I have experience training dogs. If you've had trouble with your dog and need advice training him/her, I can help your brainstorming. But I know when to stop - I won't nag you with an idea you've already ...
What Peter would like to know about your dog
If the dog does not behave in ways which are a hazard to itself, other people's pets, or children, I have no restrictions.
Otherwise, I must be able to set and enforce rules against such behaviour. If there's an approach to that training which you normally use, or something you don't use but want me to use, I'm willing to try it as long as it is safe. But if you are laissez-faire with regards to serious safety issues, and want a dog-walker to follow suit - that dog-walker is not me. I refuse to play tug-of-war with the dog in traffic if it's big enough to get me off the cross-walk. I refuse to let a big dog strangle a small one. No matter what the pay.
