Sitter-Psychologist for Dogs
Experience with socializing and training stray dogs and helping people learn to have a better relationship with their dogs. I am a psychologist for people, but I also have studied dog psychology. I stress the importance of daily exercise, the dog-walk in particular, especially the psychological benefits for dog and owner.
For dogs that love to run, I have a specialized bar-attachment on my bike. I've had energetic dogs pull me on my bike, at ...
What Walter would like to know about your dog
**IMPORTANT NOTE FOR DOG-WALKS**
If your dog is not leash-trained (e.g., leads the walk, pulls on the leash), then I would need to work with the dog for an extra charge BEFORE the scheduled time. In other words, I need to know if the dog is compliant to the person walking him or her. Depending on the dog, this may take only an hour of training.
For training, I charge $30 per hour. I prefer involving the dog's owner so you and your canine can both enjoy the walk.
With you involved in the training, you can practice daily with your dog, even if it's only 15-20 minutes. Repetition is what really helps the dog learn. I consider this time well worth spending not only to improve your experience of the dog-walk, but maintain a healthy relationship with your dog.
