How To Be a Mindful Dog Walker

To discover the peace of the present moment. One of the things we love about dogs is their attention to the sensory world—no thinking about the past or worrying about the future. Just the here and now. By following their example, we can learn to turn down the volume and occupy the present. Some days, it’s hard to get out of our heads and into our lives. We might be stuck on an emotion, mentally replaying an event that didn’t go as planned or worrying about a “What if” occurring in the future.As a mental health counselor, I not only deal with my own questions and concerns about the “What ifs” in life, I try to help my clients manage their thoughts and emotions around the unknowns as well. I can’t always provide answers to the “What if” questions, but I do try to help my clients recognize what is in their control and what is not.

Rex – 10 year old male Cross-Breed

Rex is a beautiful 10 year old male Cross-Breed. Possibly a Labrador cross. He loves human affection but is not keen on sharing the attention with his other dogs in the home.Although that being said he is dog friendly so a home with a calm / laid back dog would be okay.He would prefer a quieter home with older children, he has been around a toddler and showed no interested so small visitors would be okay!Rex is neutered! Based in Lincolnshire.

Ella – 3 year old female Cross-Breed

Ella is 3 year old female Cross-Breed. She has lovely wire-like hair and is medium in size although she is all legs!Ella is a very active girl who loves playing in the garden with her dog friends so we think she would benefit from being homes with a confidence- giving playful dog! She can be a little shy with new people and may even bark but she soon comes around.Ella is not walking on a lead yet, so will need someone to give her time to build her confidence up work with her as she can be shy, for that reason we would ask that she is homed with children over 12.Currently based in Lincolnshire.

Mama Bronwyn – 3 year old female Cross-Breed

Mama Bronwyn is roughly 3 year old female Cross-Breed and on the smaller size of medium. She is a very very sweet girl who hides in the background of her kennel friends.She is very timid and would benefit from someone willing to put the time into her to being her round. She is very calm and gets on well with her kennel friends.She is curious with humans and always comes over when you enter her kennel but will need work to accept a lead and start to explore more. Currently based in Lincolnshire.

Hercules – 5 year old male Cross-Breed

Hercules is a 5 year old male Cross-Breed. He is large / extra large in size. Sometimes he is not aware of his size and is like a extra large puppy, he likes to jump up and get over excited when his fosters come down first thing in the morning, so he will need an experienced home who are willing to put in the time and effort to continue his training.He is a very smart boy who has already learnt to sit and give paw. His current training focus is on getting used to noisy environments with lots of distractions, he has been let off the lead but only in secure areas as his nose often gets him into trouble.That being said he will need an owner who is prepared to deal with some food aggression. Hercules loves every dog he meets but can forget his size sometimes and gets a little rough, so again some experience with large / bouncy breeds would be beneficial for Hercules.He currently lives with chickens, ducks, rabbits and cats although showing interest initially he now just ignores them!
