Prior to working with your dog our employees will have completed training with Jeff Graves, covering the following: leash handling procedures, safety measures while out with your dog, warning signs for fatigue, overheating, and injury, general client home security, and key handling protocols. We make sure our runners are in top shape, so they can focus on your dog while out for a run. We educate all employees on basic positive reinforcement dog training and dog behavior/body language. Our employees go through at least two interviews. We check all references. We prefer to hire athletes who have a Bachelor’s degree at least. Jeff Graves will attend the first two runs with each new client and runner to ensure compatibility and client safety measures/instructions are clear and being followed.
