DOG WALKING, PET SITTING, AND DOG TRAINING
We all have times in our lives when we might need a little extra help caring for our pets, whether it is due to long hours at work, a new baby, illness or disability, or simply because you are going on holiday.
Some of us may have friends, family or neighbours willing to help out, but to ensure your pets are in the best possible hands when you can’t be there, why not consider a fully insured, professional dog walker or pet sitter?
Training your puppy or dog is vital for being able to control them when at home or out and about. It can also be a fun way to bond and improve your relationship with your dog. As an accredited trainer with the Institute of Modern Dog Training, I use only the most up to date, scientifically sound, reward based training to ensure that learning is safe and enjoyable for all involved.
Come along to monthly DOG CLUB to have fun training your dog along with other dogs and owners, or book a one to one session to get advice specifically tailored to your situation.
For more details about dog training, walking, or pet visits contact Amy via

We cover anywhere within an approximately 5 mile radius of Ormskirk, which includes Burscough, Scarisbrick, Halsall, Aughton and Town Green, for expert and reliable dog walking and pet sitting.
For training consultations I can travel up to 10 miles.
Dog training classes are held at the Scout District HQ, Hall Lane, Lathom, L40 5UN.
We offer individual or group dog walks, with the aim to make sure that all dogs return home tired and happy. As well as physical exercise we aim to make walks as mentally stimulating for the dogs as possible, by walking in a variety of locations, with opportunities for basic training, scent games, fetch, Frisbee, trick training, agility style exercises and much more, all based on positive reinforcement and clicker training principles. Water bowls are topped up/refreshed if required after every walk or home visit
Group classes are suitable for puppies over the age of 12 weeks, or friendly adult dogs, and cover most common training essentials such as recall, stay, “leave it” and loose lead walking, tricks, as well as much much more!
I can also offer one to one dog training sessions, so if you have a new puppy or rescue dog and are looking for a few tips to get things off to a good start, have a dog whose behaviour is driving you mad, or simply want to get more from your relationship with your dog, please contact me!
THINKING OF GETTING A PUPPY?
I can offer one to one help and advice on puppy training, and how to deal with common puppy problems, such as mouthing or house training, to help you and your new puppy get off to a good start.
Puppy home visits (which can involve a short walk, feeding – if required, training, and play) are designed so that you can have peace of mind if you have to leave your puppy home alone during the day, or sign up to the group classes to meet other dogs and owners whilst learning kind, effective dog training techniques so you can help your dog grow into a happy, well behaved family friend!
PET VISITS, PET TAXI, AND OTHER PET SERVICES
Home visits may be appropriate for older dogs or nervous dogs, instead of a walk, to give them an opportunity to go to the toilet and play games in the garden or indoors or just have a cuddle and some company if they get lonely at home alone.
Home visits are not a replacement for kennels or home boarding as they can not be provided for dogs who will be left alone overnight. However morning and evening pet visits can be provided for most other animals if you are going away on holiday.
I am experienced with a wide range of furry, feathered, and scaly friends, from cats, gerbils, rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets, to chickens, geese and ducks, bearded dragons, geckos, and even Giant African Land Snails and stick insects!
So if you are going away and need someone to care for your pets, or if you can’t drive and need to get a pet to the vets, please get in touch.
