Not all dogs are suited to group walks and socialisation. There are numerous reasons why you may want to have your dog have one on one attention when choosing a service offering dog walking in North Vancouver. It may be that your pet has a sensitive temperament and is not good around other dogs. Your dog may have health issues which means that the strenuous activity of a group walk may not suit it. And many people choose our walk & train service to give their pet some extra – or initial – training.
If you choose to use our solo walk service, we will customise a package that best suits your dog. We will take into account your dog’s age, level of fitness, any health problems, and how much exercise you think it needs. A great advantage of our solo service is that dog and walker get to know each other a lot better. While our walkers can never take the place of doggy parents, we like to think of ourselves as being in loco parentis, and your dog will always receive the highest professional levels of care.
Times and Places
Another benefit of using our solo service for walking dogs is that we can tailor the schedule to suit you…and the dog. That means that we can walk him in your own neighbourhood if you prefer – though if there are no open green spaces or parks, we can take him/her to one – and we can walk him at the times which best suit you and the dog’s needs. This can depend on your own working hours and when you feel he needs out. It could be once or even twice a day if they need it.
More Than a Walk
In some cases, we can tailor special packages which provide much more than just a walk. We always walk your dog with love, but we can do more if required. Maybe you need someone to take your pet to a vet’s appointment. Perhaps they need medication at certain points during the day. Or it could be that you just want your dog to have more attention than a walk will provide. Whatever your thoughts are, have a chat with one of our friendly Dog Walking Vancouver staff to see what levels of service we can provide.
Healthy Dogs Are Happy Dogs
It’s sad to consider that over 50% of dogs and cats are classified as obese in the USA. Hopefully we can help to make that figure lower in Canada! Solo walks can help maintain levels of fitness in your dog or we can put together a regular schedule to help shift any extra weight your dog may have put on. On average, it is recommended that most dogs have walks at least three times per day, ideally of about 20-30 minutes’ duration. Let our dog walkers fill the gaps when you are at work and ensure that your best friend is healthy and happy.
