Summary

Are you sick and tired of being ignored and embarrassed by your distracted dog? Do you dread the daily dog walk and find exercising your dog draining and depressing? Do you love your dog dearly but hate walking him, and do you wish you had more control?

Worry no longer because help is at hand, and in Worry Free Walks, superhero dog-training specialist Dominic Hodgson deconstructs the dog walk and gives you a simple and straightforward, step-by-step guide that will get you from your front door to the park bench without any pulling, lunging, barking, or shouting.

In Worry Free Walks, you will discover:

  • How to use the "Safety Audit" to eliminate bad habits and turn your dog walk into a safe, secure, and stress-free experience.
  • How to tap into your dog’s "preprogrammed" breed traits and provide fun and engaging games that will keep him laser-focused on you.
  • How to use the power of play to influence and "entertain" your dog so he never leaves your side, even if there are birds, squirrels, and other dogs nearby!

Get ready for change, because Worry Free Walks holds the answers to your dog-owning prayers....

Quick and practical advice for any dog owner.

I loved this book, it was a pleasure listening to the words of wisdom whilst I was out walking my dogs. OnceI had listened to the book, I had to get a hard copy so I could reread the parts that interested me most. This quick and no B.S. approach to teaching yourself new tricks, so you can pass onto your pooch is fantastic. Can't wait to read the next book. 😁

Immediate effect!!! After listening to this I implemented straight away and there’s already a noticeable improvement!

I’ve read worry free walks and decided to get the audio version too and I’m extremely happy I did. I listened from start to finish in one night. Taking notes as I went. I literally felt like I was sat with Dom whilst he read the book to me. Explaining everything with stories that left me laughing, nodding my head in agreement and giving me simple steps to implement with both my own dog and the dogs I walk.
It is something I will easily refer back to and cannot wait for the next in the series. Thank you, a brilliant audio!

Worry Free Walks

An entertaining and informative book , the author tells it as it is with 'no bs'. His style is easy on the ear and got me laughing as I listened. His honesty shows through as he explains his successes and his failures.
Very helpful for a first time dog owner.

Not your average dog training book

I always prefer to listen to the author when listening to audio. Feel like Dominic Hodgson is actually speaking to me! When I listen to dog training books it’s normally filled with theory and to be honest I find it rather boring. ‘Worry free walks’ is entertaining. It focuses on simple and actionable steps that will improve your relationship with your dog and in turn will make your dog better behaved. It deals with issues that other books don’t like how to be responsible in your dog owning community and stuff before walks and safety audits which I believe lots of owners would benefit from. This is the 3rd book I have listened to from Dominic Hodgson and I would say it’s his best!

Explains the reason behind the importance of play

This was a great and entertaining listen. The tactics are simple but the author delves into why it's all so important as a dog owner. Tonnes of hints and tips to get even the laziest of dog owners past the barrier of unknown to give it all ago. Start small and often and the rewards will soon be seen. Great advice to any dog owners but essential to anyone new to dog ownership that wants to stay on the right path and prevent any potential pitfalls!
