Theo and Friends. Meeting the physical and mental needs of your dog.
If you are looking for a dog walker or pet sitter in Newcatle upon Tyne then look no further.
Hi, I'm Liz McCormick, Founder of Theo and Friends and I'm passionate about helping you come home to a happy, relaxed, and well exercised dog.
Over the past few years I've had an amazing time delivering an adventure service to dogs in Newcastle upon Tyne and its surrounding areas, however what I've really loved most during these group walks is seeing dogs learn and build their confidence, something that isn't always easy in a group setting.
With this in mind, I've worked to develop a tailored one-to-one service which works to support your dog's specific needs and help them to develop, grow and have amazing fun walks. In this setting I am able to reinforce dogs loose lead walking, awesome recall, and to come away from distractions. These sessions are fully bespoke to your dogs needs and can include scentwork and games, parkour and enrichment activities. We can spend the full time walking, or mix it up to include feeding and snuggles too.
If you have a dog with more complex needs or if you're working to a training plan, I'm also happy to work with you and your trainer/behaviourist to ensure that care consistent to your dog's plan is being delivered.
Ultimately, I'm determined to provide the best possible care and support for you and your dog, which is why I'm always working to improve and increase my skills and knowledge. I work and continue to work with some of the best trainers in the country to further improve my dog handling skills and regularly attend lectures reporting on the latest research in dog behaviour.
In addition to this, I also run a popular cat visit service. This is something that I've been doing for several years now and have a number of customers who come back time and time again.
