Dog Walking

I offer social group walks and special needs walks. 

On social walks, the dogs are off-lead and able to interact, run, sniff, and play with me, each other, toys etc.  I call the dogs to me many times during the walk, reward them and release them to play again.  Even the ones who start off slow to respond soon speed up when they see the other dogs getting treats!  

When grouping dogs, consideration is given to your dog’s age, size, energy level and temperament. I have social group walks for older, slower dogs who just want to potter and sniff everything, as well as group walks for the young dogs who want to chase balls or and run around with each other.

Social walks are $27.50 per dog (2 dogs same house = $45.00)
This 
includes pick up from your home, transport to a local park, a walk of at least 45 minutes, and drop home. Examples of parks we go to are Piney Lakes Reserve, Beeliar Regional Park, John Connell Reserve, Canning River Regional Park, John Creaney Park, Shelley Reserve, Morris Buzacott Reserve, Samson Park, Alan Edwards Park, Prendwick Park, Vellgrove Park, and Willeton Park.

Social walks are for non-aggressive/reactive, vaccinated, desexed dogs (or unspayed females who are NOT on heat) with good recall (i.e. come when called).  These dogs can safely interact with any other social dog and be safely walked at any park. NB: The initial walk for all social walk dogs is $40.00 to cover an assessment of the dog’s social skills, play style, recall, and to determine which group he is best suited to.

Special needs walks are for dogs who do not fit into the above category.
a) For non-reactive dogs, these walks are $40.00/45 mins (2 dogs same house = $55.00).
Many
 of my clients’ dogs have started on this tariff due to the dog having a lack of training, poor recall, poor social skills, poor connection with humans, anxiety etc. By working with the dogs, I have successfully integrated many of them into my off-lead social walks ($27.50 per walk) which has resulted in significant improvements in the dogs’ behaviour (see my reviews of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/pawspetcare.com.au/reviews/?ref=page_internal

b) Dog-reactive dogs:  I am experienced in walking dog-reactive dogs on-lead and employ a number of different strategies in managing the reactivity e.g. keeping them below their tolerance threshold by ensuring appropriate distance from the trigger, giving the dog time to process the trigger at a tolerable distance, redirecting the dog where appropriate to perform behaviours he/she knows well that are incompatible with the unwanted behaviour (e.g. asking the dog to sit facing me so he/she has her back to the trigger at a distance he/she is comfortable with), rewarding a calm response, creating a positive association with the trigger.  These walks are $55.00/45 mins.

All walk prices are based on regular scheduled weekly walks and include texts with photos/videos of your dog on the walk and to let you know what they’ve been up to.

We walk in all weather.  I towel-dry wet dogs before returning them home and, in the hot weather, stick to leafy shaded areas to walk, reduce fetch games, and ensure the dogs have access to plenty of water (which I smooth over their heads, backs and bellies to cool them down). Usually there is a nice breeze so the dogs are quite happy.  On extremely hot days, I tend not to walk dogs between 11am and 3pm as it is too uncomfortable for them. On these days, walks will be before 11am or after 3pm.  In hot weather, I don’t walk dogs on pavements or sand – only grass to avoid scorched paws.

Surcharges:
1) Ad-hoc weekday walks (i.e. not regular scheduled weekly walks) carry a $5.00 surcharge per dog per walk. 
2) Weekends, 
Public holidays, and peak holiday periods
As there are no scheduled group walks on these days, all non-reactive dogs are $50.00 per dog per walk (2 dogs same house = $65.00) and reactive dogs are $65.00 per dog per walk.

DOG TRAINING

I am a qualified dog trainer – https://www.imdt.uk.com/find-a-qualified-imdt-trainer.html

I offer training for humans who are struggling with their dogs and can show you how to address many of the common issues e.g. won’t come back to you when called on walks, digging, chewing, nipping, barking, jumping up, pulling on lead etc.

An initial 90 minute session, plus a 45 minute follow up session (within 3 weeks of initial session) = $200.00.  This training is conducted at your house (within 10km of Radnor Street, Leeming.  Travel surcharges apply over 10km).

Additional training sessions are $65.00/45 mins. If recall is the main issue, we can use this time at a park to practise what you’ve learned. 

I also offer Walk and Train – these are on-lead walks where  I can teach your dog focus/connection with handler, loose-leash walking, come, sit, stay, leave it, down etc.  These are $65.00/45mins.

PET MINDING

While you’re away, I can look after your pets e.g. feed/water, give medication (ex-vet nurse experienced at giving pills, eye drops, injections etc), water plants, collect post, scoop poop, clean litter tray, open/close curtains, lights on and off etc.

Charges:
$30.00/30 mins

If you only require that your dog(s) are walked while you’re away (i.e. someone else is feeding them etc), the charge is as per dog walking above.
