for eco-friendly, welfare-focused dog walking in Battersea, Clapham & nearby areas

   Home      About us
Background:
 
My name is Jason. I am British male in my early 40s and I run GCOB. Amongst other things, I was formerly a project manager in the electronics industry. I also ran a research and development department for a large American owned company based in the UK. However, I have long since swapped the desk, airport lounge and unwelcome stress for a much simpler and more eco-friendly life. Educationally, I am a graduate in electronics and hold a Diploma of Music. I have also studied some behaviourism at degree level. (Please note though, I am not a qualified animal behaviourist.)
 
Rescue Charities:
 
I have owned a rescue dog for about 7 years now and I try to involve him in as much of my life as possible. I began volunteering with Battersea Dog's and Cat's Home in 2009 and helped out there for about 2 years. My role was "dog socialiser" working with abandoned and stray dogs. This very rewarding pursuit gave me experience with a huge variety of breeds from Chihuahuas to Malamutes. I also helped out with the behaviour unit and the new intake section of the home and so gained hands-on experience of dogs with behavioural issues.  I also carried out voluntary work for a smaller animal rescue charity at around the same time, one based in north London. This work included client home visits on behalf of the rescue centre and fund raising. 
 
Assistants:
 
As the business proprietor, I am the only member of the team who handles clients' keys and enters clients' homes. However, I employ several part-time assistants who may join me at the park or common to help out with the dogs. I take great care to train these assistants to the highest standard and I am always on hand nearby to support them if necessary. This way I keep the usual dog walking group size down to four dogs per person. 
 
Insurance:
 
I have full pet business insurance with PBI. This covers dog walking, pet minding, pet sitting & pet boarding for "Public Liability", "Care, Custody and Control of Animals" etc.
