I have grown up with dogs and cats. I come from a large animal loving family where having multiple pets is the norm. Woofers Walkies was established in 2015.
I have a weakness for rescues so have an extensive knowledge of the issues that can come with them and I really enjoy building a relationship with them. I have lots of experience with senior dogs and puppies as well as sighthounds, gundogs (domestic) and mixed breeds.
As the owner of a reactive dog, this has allowed me to understand the obstacles that a reactive dog goes through and the stress that sometimes accompanies a walk of such a dog. I have spent a lot of time studying and understanding reactive dogs and the behaviours that they display in the journey of reducing triggers in the life of my own reactive dog. As well as this benifiting my own dog it has helped me to develop brain games for dogs whilst out on walks so that they are challenged mentally as well as physically.
I have 3 dogs of my own, 2 lurchers and a greyhound. One of the lurchers is 9 years old and is reactive and the other is a 1 year old puppy into everything! My greyhound is 3 years old and just recently adopted by us and is learning all about living in a home and enjoying those comforts. I previously have had greyhounds, cocker spaniels, a minature schnauzer, a poodle and mixed breeds.
