Over the years we've taken what we've learned and adopted a philosophy called Proactive Risk Management into our daily tasks. This means we are conscious and aware of potential dangers and we actively work to minimize and avoid them. For example, we've learned delivery trucks like UPS trucks can be bad news for certain dogs. The trucks start up and take off quickly and certain dogs react aggressively or are frightened by the noise and motion. This may sound simple, but taking other potential stimuli into account, these distractions and potential pitfalls can add up and really detract from the quality of the walk. Proactively managing these risks means we recognize those scenarios before they occur and we minimize their impact by moving away from them or creating a barrier to prevent them. When you apply that philosophy to all aspects of the walk, from start to finish, it adds up and helps to reinforce a healthy environment.
This is a philosophy we've truly embraced and we believe it makes a difference. We hope to continue to improve upon this philosophy and continue evolving so we can better serve the dogs we see and work with each day. Thanks for reading!
