Dog Walking & Training Syney Inner WestAs a dog trainer and walker and as the owner of 3 dogs I frequently use dog parks or areas where dogs are allowed to run free.  However, I am always aware of the risk involved in going to off lead areas as so many owners have not socialised their dogs properly or do not pay enough attention to their dogs at the park or don't understand the body language and behaviour of their own dog or of other dogs in the park.  I am constantly vigilant, watching intently to see that any dogs in my care are feeling confident, not being aggressive and are having a good time.

I also watch the other dogs in the park to make sure they are not acting inappropriately around the dogs in my care.  People often comment on how being a dog walker must be such a relaxing occupation and so much fun, which it is, but it is also quite stressful having to be constantly on the lookout to make sure my dogs are safe and I can return them to their owners happy and safe after their run in the park.

This article was published today raising a whole lot of issues relating to off lead parks and I am interested to hear what others think about Vicki's argument.  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-04-11/off-leash-parks-dangerous-says-dog-trainer/7316108

Puppy Training Sydney Inner WestOur 10 month old rescue pup Luna couldn't walk on the lead when we got her and was completely unmanageable. In one session with Gaby she learned how to walk alongside us and over the next four sessions she turned from an unruly pup into a lovely companion.

If you are looking for Puppy Training Sydney Inner West, contact us now!

Thank you so much Gaby for teaching Luna and our family how to continue training her. You're a life saver!

layla-dog-sittingGaby has looked after our  gorgeous 11mth old border collie 'Layla' twice including a one overnighter and then a 3 day stay over Easter.

Each time we felt we could go away and completely trust Gabby with Layla and we had complete peace of mind. Layla had an amazing 'doggy' holiday and is looking forward to her next holiday.
Thank you Gaby and Co.

Dog sitting Dulwich Hill - GingerOur dog Ginger stayed with Gaby and Paw Partners over Easter. Gaby was recommended to us by our usual pet sitters as they were full.

Ginger was happy from the moment she arrived. Gaby’s place is dog heaven - plenty of space, lots of doggy friends and a relaxed comfortability that leaves you knowing your dog will be cared for with love and kindness while they are there.

Gaby sent us daily photo updates of Ginger - out on her walks or looking exhausted on one of the many couch sleeping options the dogs seem to have. It actually looked a bit like a doggie sleepover.

I highly recommend Paw Partners and would happily have Ginger stay there anytime.

Jenny, Dulwich Hill
