Dog walking is a serious business. Among the many important factors of dog walking such as providing a daily routine, exercise, a potty break, and enrichment, the most important aspect of dog walking is social interaction, physical interaction (touch), and the establishment of a positive relationship between dog walker and dog.
Companion animals need socialization and interaction with us humans and Fur-Ever Friends and Pit Bull Pals is here to provide everything you’ve ever dreamed your professional dog walker to be.
Jeannette Louise Smith, Examiner Animal Advocacy Writer, created Fur-Ever Friends and Pit Bull Pals on the principles of force-free living and the individuality of all dogs. All dogs, big and small, shy and outgoing, slow-pokes and power-walkers, and moreover, all Pit Bull type dogs and all bully breeds are welcome with open arms.
As a former dog daycare manager and professional dog walker, Fur-Ever Friends and Pit Bull Pals, professional dog walker Jeannette Louise Smith, designed an exclusive, high quality dog walking service based on familiarity of animal behavior, positive reward training, experience in animal sheltering and rescue, and background in the dog daycare and dog walking profession.
