Good Boy

Business Details

For as long as I can remember I have always had an affinity with dogs. We had a golden retriever in my childhood and I doted on him. Previously I was office based in York and on my lunch breaks I would go to the RSPCA and walk some of the rescue dogs. I began fostering dogs for the blue cross too. This involved looking after them in my home whilst they were awaiting adoption. I often walked the neighbours dogs and it became clear there was a demand for my services due to my experience with dogs and it was around this time I setup Good Boy Dog Walker in March 2014. One of my clients put a lovely review on our facebook page saying that I am “passionate about dogs and …that this is more than a job – it’s a vocation”. That is exactly how I feel about it. I love my job and take so much pleasure caring for our clients’ dogs. There is never a dull day. People often comment how calm I am with the dogs I walk. I recognise that dogs respond to my calm nature. I only use positive reward based training and am constantly learning through reading and watching videos and through the dogs that I care for. No matter how experienced we are with dogs there is always much more to learn.
