If you reside in either the Van Vorst Park or Hamilton Park neighborhoods of Jersey City, New Jersey, I highly recommend contacting Otis Ball of Gypsy Dog Walking Service at 201-451-5070. Otis Ball has eighteen years of dog handling experience. If your dog struggles with bad behavioral issues such as aggression, separation anxiety, or bad leash manners (lunging, barking, jumping on leash etc.), Otis is skilled at resolving these bad behaviors and effectively heeling each dog within his pack during each pack walk. Heeling during a daily pack walk is essential to maintaining your dog's calm obedient behavior. In addition to daily pack walking services, Otis offers in-home dog daycare as well as boarding. Using the balanced training method and tools, Otis has an exceptional ability to integrate and maintain a calm pack during both pack walking and boarding activities. If your dog has struggled with bad behavior in the past, and has been rejected from day care, or other dog walking services, Otis can absolutely accommodate you and help your dog to walk peacefully as well as have an opportunity to safely socialize. With each of my client dogs that have issues such as human aggression, dog aggression and leash reactivity, Otis is the only trained professional that I trust to follow through with the parameters of a calm structured walk. The rate is $15 per structured pack walk.
