As a Kendal and South Lakes dog walker and sitter, I am a big fan of positive rewards. The rewards, which accompany my kind words, are only ever healthy treats, so no matter how young or old, fit or unfit your pooch may be, you can be absolutely sure that I will only ever feed nutritious vegetable based snacks to reinforce good behaviour.
The snacks, which I always have in my pocket whilst out dog walking in Kendal and the South Lakes area, comprise crunchy carrot sticks, roasted sweet potato chunks, and Whimzees veggie sticks, I've yet to meet a canine who does not love their veggies and with these snacks I know they are healthier and free of nasties, which often lurk in commercial dog food. I am always happy to share my canine healthy eating tips with dog owners, and not least, since I have fed my own beloved pooch a home-based diet for the past 10 years.
Kendal is an amazing place to be a dog walker! It offers a rich variety of walks for pooches through woodland, across fells, along rivers, and even through an urban maze of streets should your 4 legged companion prefer the latter. My personal favorites include Serpentine Woods and the Helm...two areas which are vastly different, yet both appeal because dogs simply find the terrain exciting and stimulating.
There are times when most of us need help with walking our beloved pooch. I know firsthand just how important it is to find the right person to whom we can entrust our dog to their care and responsibility. Safety is the first priority, closely followed by the utmost level of care, dignity, and respect, all elements, which ensure our canine companion has a fun adventure in our absence and then returns to us contented and happy.
As a dog walker, carer, and sitter in Kendal and South Lakeland, I strive to provide exactly the same level of dedication and care to those dogs whom are entrusted to me, as I would my own beloved pooch of 14 years. There is only one dog sitter I would ever leave my own dog with and that's simply because she knows the exacting standards I set for my dog to be cared for. Similarly, I take those standards and provide them on a professional level to my business, Posh Pooches Walk. I want both canines and humans to be 110% happy with the service I provide.
It's true, I am barking mad not to have started my own dog walking business in Kendal and South Lakeland sooner. I adore dogs, I am passionate about animal welfare, and I love the great outdoors, so I suppose it was really just a matter of time before I established Posh Pooches Walk.
I admit one needs to have a love, or at the very least, a tolerance of lousy weather because as we know, it's not all sun, flowery dresses, Prosecco and factor 50, in Kendal and the Lake District. Dogs, whatever the weather, need a walk, galloping or mild exercise, or a simple pee run. Fortunately, I have the kit...not just for balmy summery days, but also that for inclement and quite frankly, hideous weather.
But that's the thing. No matter what weather, I revel in being a dog walker in Kendal and South Lakeland. Canines are among some of the most gracious, perceptive, and affectionate creatures on the planet, so dedicating quality time to their welfare to enhance their daily routine, is a privilege.
