About Amber

Hello! from myself and my pup, Leo.

A little about us. I have come out of my 2nd year of University at EdgeHill, where I was studying Ecology & Conservation. I decided it’s not for me - I’ve always wanted an interesting job, a little less like studying bugs under a microscope, and a little more hands on like this! I am originally from Wales, so I love a good hike and can find all the good spots. My hobbies include the gym, reading, music and cooking!

Leo is my 8 month old Labrador - Lurcher cross, he currently weighs 20kg (big boy). He loves dogs of all sizes, and makes a great play mate. He has been obedience trained, he knows his stuff. Recently discovered that he loves a ball launcher, and bubbles.

If your pup is dog friendly and would like a buddy, then Leo can come along! He has had his vaccines. However, I am more than happy to work with reactive dogs or dogs with specific requirements / needs, and can absolutely do solo walks, just me and your dog.

Its never a boring walk - Ours will always include breed specific enrichment to leave them tired, whether that be chasing, hunting, retrieving or scent work! Apparently sniffing is like scrolling social media for dogs, so lots of that involved ;)

I have had my covid vaccines, and have access to a vehicle in the case of an emergency. I know basic dog CPR as do most owners, but I do wish to get an actual formal certificate in this soon. 

As well as dogs, I can do home drop ins for cats or small pets, and can offer some levels of equine care (grooming, mucking out). I have expertise in all areas, growing up with almost every kind of animal there is!

I have always loved animals so this doesn’t feel like a job to me, if not for cost of living i’d probably do this for free 🤭

Please feel free to reach out with any questions and i will endeavour to reply within 24hrs!

Specific Skills

I speak English
+5 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have had animals since birth, and now at 20 finally was able to have my own dog which completely changed my outlook on dog training. I follow positive reinforcement training and Leo knows 20+ commands including a focused heel and a cued retrieve at only 8 months old. Even during this adolescent period where there is rowdiness and boundary pushing, we have a good bond and I stay consistent. I am familiar with different breeds and therefore their specific needs eg gun dogs, retrievers, scent work and hounds and guardian/guarding breeds. These breeds will be different in nature and therefore need enrichment and training that is tailored to their natural instincts - working with rather than against.
