I’m Louise, your friendly neighbourhood dog walker and trainer!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved animals. I was the kid who knew every dog on the street’s name (and most of the cats too!).
Over the years, pet owners have entrusted me with the care of a wide variety of pets. As well as cats and dogs, I’ve cared for turtles, rabbits, blue-tongued skinks, a Chinese water dragon, and few less traditional pets too.
I feel so lucky that I discovered this passion could turn into a career.
Learning about each animal’s little (or big) quirks is always an exciting adventure.
I started walking dogs professionally in 2013 part time, while I went to school, volunteered at the local Humane Society, and by 2015 I was walking dogs full time and a certified Animal Behaviour College Dog Trainer. At the same time, I was also raising my own dog, Jynx.
Jynx and I were so lucky to have worked with excellent dog trainers who taught me well and encouraged me to pursue this career, and further my education. I am always reading and taking courses to better understand dog training and walking. I am dedicated to finding the safest and best ways to enrich the lives of animals in my care, and empower their owners.
I’m currently an intern with www.Educanine.org. I am also enrolled in the Puppy Lab through www.caninescience.co.uk, and am studying for the Certification for Professional Dog Trainers which I’ll be writing in the fall of 2019.
