Being left alone all day without their other social group members can be hard on your dog. It can easily cause bad behaviors while you are gone from the house however, also when you return. Having a dog walker to give your dog one on one time for a mid day walk can solve a lot of issues. Maybe he's not making it the full 8 hours while you are away, this mid day walk or early after noon walk can help ease any physical or mental issues your dog(s) may be having.
Why use Spirit of the Okami?
-Being a member of Pet Professional Guild you know you are getting a dog trainer/ walker who understands the most up to date information on dog behavior and someone who would never use pain, fear, or force to walk your dog. Unlike other Dog walkers we do not resort to the "Use of touch" to tell your dog how to walk. Force free means just that, we get your dog to walk nice without using any form of force.
-Spirit of the Okami is one of the few dog walkers who does one on one walking. Meaning that when it comes to your dog(s)' walk it is only your dog(s) no one else's. This allows for better care and attention to your furry family member. It also means the chance of a dog fight happening is far less than a dog walker who walks multiple dogs from different homes together.
Prices are based on the distance you are from Spirit of the Okami's location.
