A little bit introduction about me :

Hi pet owners, do you have a busy week and you are feeling guilty about not being able to walk your dog? I understand how important it is for your dog to have a good exercise/walk for the day or else they get frustrated and chew up stuff in your home. I have been a dog walker in Netherlands for 3 years and in India for 8 years. I believe every dog ​​is capable of being calm and joyful. Since they get influenced by our moods and behavior I work with dog owners to help them become calmer dog owners. Along with dog walks, I also enjoy basic behavioral training of dogs. I have a very close bond with the last dog I trained named " Pudge" and " Joy" ( in my pictures) and I like to keep in touch with the owners to see how their puppy is doing. For me, this is not just a job, but a passion for brining joy and better life for dogs ( animals in general) . I am living in the center of Utrecht finishing my Master Thesis so I am quite flexible with time. I would never stop walking and training dogs. I also volunteered in national care in Wassenaar for 3 months enjoyed every bit of it. I have fair amount of experience in behavior training and dog walking. I like to do running and cycling with the dogs to give good exercise. If your dog is not trained for it I can also help with it :) A well exercised dog with good mental work out ( training) is always going to be calm and sweet in your home .

Following are the details of my services I offer :

1) Dog walk : I am a trained dog walker and I like to do enrichment walks. It means I teach dogs to follow my lead and help them to walk next to me ( without pulling on the leash) . My walks are generally 30 to 45 mins (depending on the weather and requirement). If the weather is not conductive I also offer alternate agility training. And of course plenty of affection and affirmation.

2) Leash pull: I teach dog owners and their belowed dogs to walk without a lot of stress on the leash. A simple leading method ( calm and assertive demeanor) goes a long way in getting the result. And of course solitaire works wonders.

3) Behavioral training : I teach dogs to not be aggressive with other people and be more social with other dogs. If you have issues with your dog being aggressive with other dogs , I can help you since I work with such dogs. And the good news is most dogs just need to be understood and need a strong leader to help them feel safe. Thats one of the secrets for them not lash out on other dogs :) I can certainly help you achieve that. Other training include : controlling puppy bites, setting boundaries in the house, respecting certain spaces, teaching them not to growl or bite while eating their meal.

4) Home visits : I also do home visits if its not more than 6 kms from the center of utrecht. My services include cleaning the mess made by the dogs/cats. Cleaning the kitty litter, Spending time with the pets ( dogs : entertaining them) , Taking them outside for toilet ( dogs) . Giving medications ( non - syringe ) . massages to dogs to relieve stress and anxiety ( if requested ) . My home visits are from 30 to 45 mins ( as per requirement and number or pets )

5) Pet/house Sitting : I offer pet sitting as well . Since I work on my thesis from home I can devote a lot of time with your pets when you are gone for your vacation. Number of days is flexible and negotiable. My service during pet sitting includes : watering the plants, cleaning after the pets ( kitty litter) and toys, Daily walks for dogs, playing with the dogs and keeping them entertained, Cleaning up after using utensils, and keeping the house tidy. If you have a garden (picking up poops). And ofcourse feeding the pets on time and giving necessary medication ( oral and applied medication) . Apart from all this I also offer puppy training and I like running and cycling with dogs. It gives them good exercise and helps them not to be bored at home. ( Upon your request I can offer these services as well).

I preach pet owners to cater to the needs of their pets. Needs which have been evolved through generations of evolution. I hope to see you and your beautiful pet soon :)

Cheers, Kiran

Heel blij met Kiran! Hij heeft duidelijk kennis over honden en de omgang met honden. Kiran denkt mee en kwam ruim voor de eerste afspraak zelfs even kennismaken en een rondje lopen. Onze hond Billy (golden) was meteen op zijn gemak bij hem. Ook reageert Kiran snel op berichten en is hij duidelijk qua communicatie. Fijn om een betrouwbare oppas gevonden te hebben!

Kiran is heel goed met de honden, communiceert heel goed met ons (de baasjes) en heeft het huis ook heel netjes behandeld en achtergelaten.

We zijn heel blij dat hij 3 weken zo goed op onze honden en huis heeft gepast
