Private 30 or 60 minute walks
We offer regular 30 or 60 minute walks.
These walks are great for most dogs. They can be of a structured or a decompression nature, whichever is best for your dog. Dogs thrive on consistency, especially young dogs, so we will adhere to whatever training routine your dog is following to help keep everything consistent.These walks are typically done in your neighbourhood, however for 60 minute walks driving to a trail or park for a long line or off-leash walk are also possible (with client's approval.)
Successful Puppy Visits
Don't let all the hard work you're doing with your puppy go out the window by hiring the wrong dog walker!
We offer an amazing specialized and unique program for puppies, available to pups between two to seven months old. This consists of two highly structured visits during your work day, approximately 3 hours apart. We focus on setting your puppy up for success by using positive reinforcement to build confidence, work on impulse control, encourage focus and attention, and work on basic training. We prioritize socialization and working within your puppy's comfort zone. Any feeding needs are included in visits.
We offer 30 minute training walks, ideal for older puppies and new rescues that need a bit (or a lot) of extra help.
We can help with many common issues such as:
These are done in your neighbourhood with one of our dog trainers. We do a through meet and greet before to go over your dog's history and your training goals. We recommend at least two walks a week, each includes a detailed description of what was worked on, photos/videos, and homework to work on. Once a month we encourage the owners to come along on a walk to see first hand what we've been working on, practice with the trainer, and ask any questions.
Once you dog's issues are at a manageable level, we can switch to a private or group walk, if desired.
Please note that at this time we do not handle any dogs that show aggression to humans. If you think this may apply to your dog, but aren't quite sure, feel free to reach out and we'll go over a few things before the meet and greet. If you're dealing with a human reactive dog, see our resources page for a list of great experienced trainers we recommend.
We offer 50 minute group walks with a maximum of four dogs.
These are perfect for active, social dogs, and a great learning experience for older puppies! These often include driving to a park or trail, so the dogs can be out of the house for up to 1.5 hours. We can do off leash or use long lines, if appropriate. We never go to dog parks. At least one 30 private walk is required before booking group walk to assess your dog.
