What do my customers say about me?
Emma & Milo - 'Since using Alba K9 services Milo has quickly settled down into his new home. He is still tired when I get home from work mid afternoon which means he has had a good walk in the morning and he is calmer around the more excitable dogs we meet.
I have a long list of things I like about the service from Alba K9. One if the best things is Louise’s knowledge and perception with the dogs. She noticed very quickly that Milo had a good sense of smell (I used to teach him tracking when he was younger but haven’t got the time these days) so she regularly incorporates sniffing games within the walk. Milo is very intelligent and loves using his brain and doing things for treats, so for me this is an added bonus. Louise is also great at uploading photos on Facebook of the daily doggy adventures which as an owner is invaluable. I know that he is having a great time out on his walks and I don’t feel quite so guilty about leaving him to go to work.
For anyone thinking of using Alba K9, I would highly recommend Louise. She is extremely knowledgeable about dogs and is very passionate about what she does. She genuinely cares for each dog as if they were her own and unlike a lot of other dog walkers she makes walkies fun with games that each dog enjoys such as fetch, sniffing games etc. She is also very conscious of pairing up dogs of similar nature so every dog enjoys their walk and not just about getting as many dogs out as possible. I have had numerous dog walkers over the years and Louise is certainly by far the best walker we have had. Milo loves going out with her so I’m happy!!'
Mel and Rebus
'Hi Louise, I thought I would drop you a line to say thank you for all your help in managing Rebus and his coat. As you know Russian Black Terriers have particular grooming demands and Rebus happens to have a particularly thick coat. As you know I tried more than a few groomers in vain; either they couldn't cope with the coat, the dog or the demands of the owner. He isn't a dog that likes being groomed but he eventually seccumbed to your professionalism and care. I find it difficult to manage his coat in between sessions and your advice has been invaluable. You are aware Russian Black Terriers are a guarding breed related to Giant Schnauzers, Rottweilers and Airdale Terriers and can be a handful. Your knowledge of health care, psychology and the requirements of dogs is passed on freely. Thank you for your great service and I hope it goes from strength to strength.
