Our dog walks make dogs social. world-wide 25,000 humans are killed by dogs.
Dog walking is about health of a dogs mind and body on a continuing basis. Dogs don't learn from a dog walker as such, though a good walker will give considerable guidance to the dog and owner. They will however observe how social dogs behave and how a social pack works together in play and simulated hunt (directed walks).
A big part of what we do in helping dogs become more social, is going to have the dogs be more social to humans at home and when the owners take their dogs out. We don't walk 'red zone' dogs that are highly anxious or aggressive - a dog trainer or dog behaviourist deals with those outliers.
We however get dogs to a social level where they are having fun on their outing with us, and with reduced stress and anxiety comes a lot lower likelihood that a dog will resort to a bite when confronted by an emergency situation.
We get that people in developing countries don't all have time to walk their dogs. We get that dog control of wild dogs isnt probably their councils priority either. However in developed nations, with very few stray dogs on the street, it is incredible that there are any dog bites or dog deaths caused to humans at all. If you walk your dog regularly off lead, and it is a relaxed happy dog then you will know what I mean. If you don't walk your dog regularly and need a professional to do it for you, give us a call ..
