OUR DOG WALKS
Our walks are always in safe off lead areas where dogs can explore natural evironments, such as nature trail parks, bay areas or river walks. Exploring by sniffing and roaming takes your dog back to his/her natural instincts which creates immense satisfaction. If your dog is good ‘off lead’ we will have them walk off lead in a natural pack formation. This is a very important aspect of natural dog behaviour as they can discover the natural environment and establish natural socialisation (aiding their mental/ instinctual health). If your dog is not well socialized, likes to roam, is sick or aged, upon request we will walk your dog on lead. We will not walk aggressive dogs or any dog that presents a danger to themselves or others.
Walks are typically of 45 minutes duration minimum (plus transport times). They are directed walks rather than simply placing them in a group and expecting them to entertain themselves. These kinds of walks are aimed at reducing behavioural problems such as boredom, excessive barking or digging, compulsive chewing etc.
1) Home consultation
After your initial contact, we offer a no obligation free home consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your dogs needs, meet your dogs walker, plan your dogs walk schedule and decide whether to proceed.
2) Dog profile sheet
Should our service be of interest to you we ask you complete a dog profile sheet that includes your preferences such as walk requirements, snacks allowed and health issues etc.
3) Health Check
We also ensure that all dogs walked have a current certificate of vaccination, and request they are wormed/ flea treated.
Owners will need to provide lead and safety harness.
5) Pick ups
Dogs are typically picked up between 9am and 9:30am. Morning walks tire out your dog for the rest of the day, so they do not encounter boredom issues whilst waiting for you to come home. You will need to provide access for your walker to collect your dog, whether it's a key or backyard access. All our walkers are 100% police checked.
Walks take place on all weather days (including rainy days). If weather is extreme and a danger to your dog, walks may be postponed until clear or cancelled. The cancelled walk will be credited to you for future walks.
