About Finchley Dog Walker

North Finchley Dog Walker

North Finchley Dog Walker

 

 

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Derek Chambers but my friends call me Del and I have been a professional North Finchley dog walker since 2011. I have, however, had a lifetime owning and caring for dogs and felt it was time to transfer my passion into a commercial venture. I am fully insured and highly competent in the handling of dogs of all sizes.

 

Anyone searching for a dog walker or pet sitter in the N12 area of London need look no further. I have references and can supply evidence of current CRB checking. As well as running my ownNorth Finchley dog walker business I also get involved in the Haringey District Scout movement. My first love though is the care and welfare of our canine friends and anyone entrusting their much-loved pet to me is assured of the very best of attention at all times. I will always work with you, the owner, so if your dog has specific routines in their days or medical requirement I will always respect the need for a consistent line of care.

 

On the other hand though, if you give me a free hand, I will employ my own positive reward training methods to dogs in my charge. I will ensure that a dog in my care is never bored and will endeavour to stimulate them at every opportunity. At all times though I will instil in them good behavioural practices, and their owners will reap the benefit of this. They will not only receive effective, even tiring, exercise but will also get the chance to sniff out new haunts and meet fellow dogs whenever it is appropriate for them to do so.

 

Whilst my North Finchley dog walker and pet sitting business is relatively new I have many satisfied dogs and owners on my books. I don't like to be stuck in a dull routine myself and I pass this aspiration onto my canine charges. Anyone with a dog in the N3, N2, N11 or N12 area is warmly invited to contact me as soon as possible to find out about the variety of dog walking and dog sitting services that I can offer to North Finchley residents.

Derek is very punctual and patient. And he has to be! Lili, our new arrival, has many fear issues, and finds it very hard to cope with anyone else walking her.

Needless to say, Del makes time for her, and is very relaxed around her. She's slowly learning that he isn't a threat, and only time will tell if she will ever overcome it.

But Derek himself is always on time, is very flexible when it comes to when he walks them, and he takes our 2 dogs on good long 30 min walks. Toby our other dog loves him, and that is normally a good barometer for someone!

I'd heartily recommend Derek

My labrador Morrissey loves Derek, and waits for him by the door every day, even on days when he's not coming! Derek is reliable, trustworthy, and most importantly, loved by the dogs that he cares for. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I'm a pet behaviourist and Derek is the ONLY person with whom I trust my own rescue terrier. He also house sits for me. He is brilliant. I refer lots of my behaviour clients to him. He is happy to walk dogs who are perhaps not the easiest, and is a lovely kind man too

We are grateful to Derek for all his expertise and support in dealing with our shy and problematic Puli. Derek's working walks have contributed so much to Oreo being better behaved both on the streets and at home. We found Derek reliable, trustworthy and always willing to help. Derek has patient and kind approach to dog handling and is persistent in getting problems sorted. We can highly recommend Finchley Dog Walking services!

Type Of Pet : Pug/French Vulldog

Town Country : North Finchley, London
I’ve been using Derek’s dog-walking services for about 3 months now for my (sometimes rather unruly) pug x French bulldog! I work on an ad-hoc basis, the irregularity of which would send some people running, but Del is always completely happy to accommodate my very erratic schedule, often at short notice.


He really went above and beyond when I recently pulled something in my back; it went into spasms and I could barely walk. Not only was he very happy to come around to walk Darcey at very short notice; he even offered to pick up shopping for me & arrange aided walks if the problem persisted.


I would not hesitate to recommend Derek and The Finchley Dog Walker’s services and Darcey’s reaction to him is a recommendation in itself – she goes completely loopy & adores him!


Dog-walking.

Derek came twice daily to feed and muck out my two cats whilst I was overseas.

One cat is elderly (18 years old), and the other is a nervous, rescue cat.

Derek used his animal care skills, successfully taking good care of my babies.

Thanks Del!

Derek was such a massive help with our new dog, he gave us lots of tips and advice and most importantly made sure Jessie was walked and exercised properly everyday. We couldn't have done it without him and if we hadn't have moved away we would most definitely still be working with Derek. There is no better dog walker in north London would highly recommend!

Derek has been a great help with our new puppy Ollie. As we haven't had a dog before Derek has given us lots of advice as Ollie is very lively & quite a handful!! I would definitely recommend Derek.

It is clear that Derek really loves dogs - and they love him! Our 6 month old puppy really enjoys his walks and we feel confident that he is in very safe hands.

We were so relieved to find a dog walker on short notice who could handle Dexter, our very strong and energetic GSD adolescent. Although we first needed Derek's services during a family emergency, Dexter was so happy with him that we decided to continue with daily walks when the emergency was over. Derek is reliable, flexible & trustworthy - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Derek has been walking my dog for about eight months and in that time I have always found him to be very reliable. My dog is so happy when she hears the door bell ring and always comes home tired. Derek has a calm and pleasant manner and has been flexible and dependable. I would recommend him.

I dislocated my Knee just before Christmas 2013 and so was in a full cast and crutches. Derek was a real godsend as he nor out took Molly out in the morning and afternoon even on Christmas day but he also did some shopping for me and helped out.

I would really recommend Derek as he will do his best to accommodate you and goes beyond Dog Walking

When our regular dog walker was away back in March for three weeks, Derek very kindly walked Poppy for us. We found hime to be very reliable and always turned up when he said he would.

When our dog walker went away again recently ((12th June to 19th June 13) we had no hesitation in asking Derek to walk Poppy again

Derek has walked our dog since I had to return to full time work in January 2012. He took the stress out of the transition, and Cassie seems very happy in his company. Weve been on a couple of walks with Derek. Cassie has some special dietary requirements, and Derek has been very accommodating in this regard. From those experiences and from Cassies general demeanour when around him, I can strongly recommend him if youre thinking of using Finchley Dog Walker to look after your dog.

I have known Derek Chambers since September 2011. We met in the park when out walking my dog. Shortly after we had a baby, Derek was the natural choice for us. Our dog is very hyper and needs a lot of attention. Since December 2011, Derek has been walking her 5 days a week, and, within a short time, we noticed an improvement in her behaviour. He taught her a few tricks, and now she is so much calmer and doesnt get stressed. We found him to be reliable, and no matter of the weather, he will be outdoors!

  • Dog Walking (1 hour walk £10 for 1 dog
  • Pet care at home. (£10 per visit) If you are on holiday, I will look after your rabbits, cats, mice, hens, ducks etc I will spend time with your pets, ensure they have plenty of food and water, clean out litter trays and any other tasks you want me to do. We all know it is very stressful for animals such as cats to be placed in boarding kennels when you are on holiday. I can give you the peace of mind that your pets are getting the highest standard of care in the stress free environment of their own home.
  •  
  • I will remove mail from your door, water plants, open curtains and close them at night if you wish 2 visits. This is included in your pet care plan.
  • Each plan will be tailored to your needs. And will include an initial free visit for me to meet your pets and to discuss your pet plan.
  • I will provide this service for dogs, however I will only do a minimum of 2 visits per day, Morning and Evening this will include walks. Preferably your dogs should have 3 visits per day morning visit with a walk, lunch time visit & short walk/toilet break and another visit in the evening including a walk. I will try as far as possible to arrange the visits around your dogs normal meal times. Unfortunatly, I cannot provide a home boarding service at my house as I do not have a licence from the council to provide this, and given I have 3 cats and 2 dogs I doubt if the council would issue me with the required licence.
  • Puppy Care (£10per day) Do you have a new member of your family, but have to work all day? I will provide 2 x 20 minute visits to your home one in the AM and another visit in the PM. I will ensure your puppy has time in the garden and it will receive plenty of praise and attention when it has done the toilet outside, I will feed and ensure plenty of water is available and clean up any accidents. In addition to this, 2 weeks after your pup’s final vaccination, I will take your puppy out for a short 5-10 minute gentle walk. I will provide this service up to 16 weeks old.
