Frequently Asked Questions
What does being a positive reinforcement establishment mean?
All our walkers are trained to use scientific based, force-free training methods and walking techniques. My Dog Spot prefers that all dogs wear harnesses when walking with us. We will not walk dogs on choke chains or prong collars. Should you use these pieces of equipment to walk your dog we will discuss alternatives at our meet and greet appointment. We use clicker training techniques to encourage desirable behavior and positively reward our dogs for good communication.
What is an initial meet and greet consultation?
After reaching out to us via our contact form, and before starting your service with us, we will visit you at your home so that we can get to know you and your pets as much as possible before customizing your unique package.
