I have had an accident and am unable to walk my pup can anyone suggest/recommend a dog walker?

Sorry to hear you've had an accident, hope you're ok (relatively speaking).

Whereabouts are you? What does your dog need? (breed, age etc)

Oh no- what was your accident? shock

Cinnamon Trust might help.

Lady, call Gladys Hutchinson at Pro Dogs Direct rescue. She's Lewisham based and may well have some suggestions for you.

I take it that it's the finger accident that's causing you grief? Sorry to learn it and hope you recover soon. Take care.

Vall, yes it is making it very hard to walk her as she is still learning not to pull and at roads etc I need to hold her lead with 2 hands - obviously I can't plus the pain killers seem to be making me quite lathargic sad

LeBoF, I have lost the tip of my finger in a door, had surgery on Thursday to reconstruct it, so although I can get about. Walking a 10m old bloody strong pup is proving impossible atm.

Could you try looping the end of the lead over your wrist on the sore finger side, and control with the opposite hand? A bit of a faff, I know, but much less hassle and expense than a dog walker.

LeBof, not really as I am having to spend a lot of time with it in a sling.

I have a fracture of the index finger as well as having had the tip reconstructed, and bandaged up RIDICULOUSLY hugely!!!

You poor love. God you're being brave, I'm a complete wuss and would be in bits. Get well soon - I'm only sorry I don't still live "back home" or I'd come and help myself.

Vall, as I said accidents happen and crying won;t fix it, I need to stay positive.

DS2 was there when it happened, I need to show him that although I screamed solidly for 35 minutes, I am OK. he is only just 4yrs old and was so amazingly calm.

As for puppy, she is still so very scatty I am having to get yet another trainer in because she is not accepting of DS1 sad

that sounds hard! am impressed with your bravery re finger, sounds horrid thing to have happened. what do you mean pup isnt accepting of your ds?

TheLadyEvenstar Mon 26-Sep-11 15:48:35

Old, I may be wrong but

DS1 is either at school or at my mums. When he us here she jumps up to where he is sitting and nips his trousers. She rarely sits down with him, yet DS2 and I she sleeps with, follows, walks lovely when off the lead in the park, plays with DS2 but not DS1 or the cat.

Don;t get me wrong she isn;t hurting either and the cat is a tease but I still worry.
