As well as dog walking in North Vancouver and the other services we offer, we can also schedule relief breaks for your pet. Although it sounds similar to the dog walking service, there are some differences. We find that many customers who book this particular service have older dogs or dogs with some form of disability which makes the normal dog walking service not as suitable. One of our staff would discuss the needs of you and your pet and we would customise a package which best suits those needs.
Age Gets to Us All
As with us humans, there comes a time in life when we don’t feel up to the same levels of strenuous exercise we did when we were younger. It gets harder to move, and sometimes we even need to use the toilet more often. Sadly, the same is true with dogs, but they can still enjoy a full and happy life with the right degree of care. We can provide packaged where our experienced staff visit your house as often as is needed. We can let your pet out to stretch their legs and do the toilet and, where feasible, take them for a short walk.
There are many reasons why your dog’s movement may be restricted. They may have suffered a debilitating illness which limits their activity. Perhaps they have experienced an accident and have lost a limb. While these factors may restrict levels of physical activity, it does not prohibit them, nor does it remove a dog’s needs. Here at Dog Walking Vancouver, we fully understand those situations and our relief service can be a big help. Regular visits to ensure your pet’s needs are attended to means that you have the peace of mind in knowing that they are well cared for.
If your dog needs to make one-off or regular visits to the vets, then this service can also be covered under our relief service. We can collect your pet from your house, take them to the vet’s office and stay with them there till they are ready to come home. This can save you the inconvenience of having to take time off work to fulfil these appointments, especially if your place of work is a good distance from your home. Dog Walking Vancouver can help with any type of relief service.
While we have mainly talked about the needs of dogs who are elderly or disabled, the same could be said for owners too. Perhaps your mobility is not what it used to be. Or it could be the case that you have had an operation or illness which has left you temporarily bedridden or housebound and you cannot meet all your dog’s needs. We can offer packages which combine any level of suitable dog walking service with elements from our relief packages, thus ensuring that your dog continues to receive the levels of care it is used to.
