After over 30 years working in I.T. I stepped aside and set up derbydogwalking. An odd career move, you may think, but being pulled in several different directions at once and clearing up messes that I didn’t make, has been a perfect preparation for my new life.
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.
With regular group walks of up to 6 dogs in total with your dog on or off lead, derbydogwalking can meet your requirements.
Having recently completed a BSc. in Canine Behaviour Management, I am now able to offer behaviour support for you and your dogs.
I use positive, reward based techniques to help achieve behavioural change.
I do not believe in miracle cures or dramatic, overnight success stories. Dogs are sentient and conscious and real change takes time, effort an patience to achieve.
We can meet somewhere mutually convenient and as we walk, we can discuss areas of concern
Allan provides us with a professional, reliable dog walking service as needed due to our work commitments. He has been great with our rescue dog, taking the time to understand his needs and slowly helping us to introduce him to new dogs and experiences. A great service and we’d highly recommend him to other dog owners.
Highly recommendable dog walker. Allan is extremely reliable and trustworthy. He will send me a quick update after he walks my dog which I really appreciate. His rates are really reasonable and was really flexible around accommodating my requirements for walking my dog.
Our dog loves his walks with Derby Dog Walking. Professional, trustworthy, great value and would highly recommend. Nothing makes you feel more at ease than seeing your dog happy, cared for and enjoying their trip out.
Superb dog carer, I highly recommend Allan. He is very reliable, and deserves a medal for the 121 input and improvements he has achieved with my gorgeous Furby who I lovingly call “my delinquent” . Don’t hesitate to check out his services
