My name is Gaye. I am an experienced dog walker and I also offer a range of services to suit you – and your dog’s – needs. Each service can be tailored to your requirements and this would be fully discussed and agreed in advance. Regular or occasional walks offered. No more than four dogs per person are walked together at any time after being assessed as to their compatibility.

I have been in business and working with dogs for over 10 years. I’m passionate about our furry friends and love taking them on a good country walk at every opportunity.

Having owned dogs for many years, I understand that your dog is an important family member and so I strive to keep you updated and in-the know about how your dog’s day or week has been.

I am fully DBS-checked, local authority licensed and insured.

Girl Friday Dog Services

Today, Nell ( who was safely in a down stay out of the way ) was approached by two very young children.

Their parents watched them without a care in the world as the ran over to a strange dog and tried to cuddle it 🤬

So I wanted to put this out there :

1. Never ever let your child approach a dog !
2. Don't let your kids cuddle dogs!

If that was a different dog those kids could have lasting scars on their face, or worse, and it wouldn't have been the dog at fault. I was able to stop them before they reached her this time.

As a parent it is completely your responsibility to ensure your child knows how to behave around dogs.

Dogs are canines and not humans. They do not hug to greet. Have you ever seen a strange dog approach another dog and "cuddle" it ? This is very scary for some dogs are just plain rude for others and is always going to end on trouble.

Teach your children to only pet dogs after you have got permission from the owner and the dog has willingly come over to you. And to pet sensibly, use one hand and definitely no grabbing of ears / tails and no climbing on / over the dog. Better yet, teach older children basic calming signals so they know how to identify an uncomfortable dog.

It's really basic stuff and I am really shocked to find out this is not something all children are taught.

Don't risk it ! 🖤🐾
