Rachel started dog walking professionally in 2007, after leaving a career in education and teaching, to spend more time with her own dogs. Over the years she has developed a holistic approach to dog care, focusing on modern force free training; behavioural issues; mental stimulation; breed specific requirements; injury prevention and rehabilitation; physical/medical issues; rescue dogs; sporting dogs; canine law; health and nutrition.

Choosing a dog walker
It’s worth being aware that unlike child care, dog walking is not monitored by a regulatory body. Anyone can become a dog walker, so for peace of mind, be sure to thoroughly research the service you are paying for. A good dog walker will be happy to discuss their routine and procedures in detail and answer all your questions. Consider doing a ‘dry run’ with your dog walker so that you can see how your dog is transported, where he will be walked, you can meet the other dogs and see how long your dog’s walks will be.
