My Philosophy:

Over years of working with rescue dogs, I have developed an approach upon which derbydogwalking is based.  When I’m walking your dog, the experience will always be positive and reward based.  It is my commitment at all times to treat your dogs as I would my own and to build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect. 

Since passing my Foundation Degree in Applied Canine Behaviour and Training in 2021, My awareness of the sublety and complexities of canine body language has been greatly enhanced.

Should I identify any areas of potential conflict, I will use positive distraction, encouragement and avoidance techniques to find a way forward. 

Each dog will be individually assessed and the service I offer is fully insured and backed by personal experience, my canine first aid training and undergraduate studies in canine behaviour and training.
