A warm welcome to a new member

Here is Sasha a collie cross and she is our newest member and a real sweetie from Renfrew. Today was the second time I have taken her out, both times with her local buddy and fellow Renfrew dog and bad-boy Jay. Every dog is different and some can even be hard work, but Sasha makes dog walking easy; she stays close, has a good recall, has no aggression, very friendly with other dogs and people and just wants to play ball.

I’ve known Sasha for quite a few months now as her owner along with other dog owners and myself all meet up to let the dogs play together and run around. So when I was asked if I could walk her I was more than delighted to.

More pics of Sasha can be found here.

The other day it was hot but I left the window open and they had water while I went to get another dog for 5 minutes, when I returned 3 women were waiting by my car saying that… Read more »

Hi Jamie,

I have really enjoyed reading your dog walking article. I am thinking of starting up dog walking as I am being made redundant in August! The information you supply is so helpful and has inspired me to look more closely into dog walking. Thank you so much.
