Barney the dog looking for work!
I own a friendly and well behaved boarder collie who is looking for doggy pals to walk with. We go on big adventures with any dogs who would like to join us any day. He likes to help wear out friendly doggos in need of exercise!
We have had barney for almost 7 years now, and we trained him from a pup. He was your typical crazy yet cheeky boarder collie, and I like to believe that with the positive training we followed we now have this wonderfully behaved and intelligent doggy.
Now that my children are at school, I have some free time to dedicate to what I enjoy. I'm hoping to introduce barney to some other friendly dogs as well!
I offer doggy boarding for short breaks with our family. When we dog sit, I like to get into a good routine with our new doggy which consists of an hour+ walk straight after the school run. (I believe a well exercised dog is a relaxed and happy one, especially in a new environment.) Then when I have to leave the home for short periods (less than an hour), I like to make sure I hide kongs and other treat dispense toys inc food in cardboard boxes, for the dog to find to keep them happy and occupied whilst I'm out. I can offer another walk at 6pm for those energetic doggys. On the weekend we drive further afield to wembury/Newquay, national trusts such as saltash in Cornwall and plympton, and generally anywhere we love to visit such as plymouth hoe, mount edgecomb, or plymbridge.
I have two children that understand that they don't play or skroke new doggys unless I'm watching. I'm also a firm believer in not leaving the kids alone with any dog. Having their own dog has enabled me to teach them how to respect animals.
As for the general dog walking service I offer, I already walk another boarder collie 3x a week within the whitleigh area. I'm looking to take on a couple of additional dogs ideally within this same area of plymouth.
Our home has spacious rooms and an enclosed back garden. The best feature is that its only a stone throw away from a large nature reserve and many many walks.
We look forward to more doggy adventures!
