  1. Why do you only offer private on-leash walks?

    While a typical 30 minute on-leash walk may not physically exhaust most dogs, I strive to provide the kind of experience that will take the edge off physically while nourishing your dog's mind and spirit, ensuring your dog eagerly looks forward to my next visit.  Dogs love to explore and check up on their neigjborhood, and with a little creativity and a lot of devoted attention, the typical leash walk turns into a mini adventure filled with opportunities for soclialization, exploration, practice and play.  We get to share a unique experience, while your furried friend has her life skills maintained and even strengthened.

    If, however, your dog is already well socialized, and so full of energy that you would really like him to go play at an off-leash park while you're away, there are a number of responsible sevices in Seattle that can make that happen.

  1. How do I get my dog to listen to me?

    The MOST frequently asked questions, when it comes to training, boil down to this, and the answer lies in respect.

    You must develop a bond with your dog, you must establish your role as leader, and you must foster mutual respect. These are achieved quite simply through play, resource management, and structure.

    For a few more tips on general training, check out my free Canine Curriculum 101, and don't hesitate to ask for more details, or set up a private lesson!

  2. How do you collect payment?

    Payment for dog walks or hikes can be made by cash, check, or money order, and left at your home for me to collect when I come by, or made electronically with a debit card, credit card, or Paypal account, through the Payment Options page on this site.

    Payments for dog walks or hikes will not be accepted in advance of scheduling an appointment, but will be accepted on the same day of service, or on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, so long as they do not exceed 5 visits, or 5 weeks.

    As mentioned, payment for training lessons is due at the end of each session, and can be made with cash, check, or card.

Security

  1. How do you ensure security?

    For starts, by avoiding going into too much detail here, on the world-wide web! However, I will be happy to share a few more details with you, should you decide to become a client. I do maintain a stealthy system, as well as liability insurance. For more info on the latter, you can see the policy by following this link here, or on the About Me page of this site.
