I've never had a professional service care for my pet before - how does it work?
Call 250-319-9592 or contact me through my website. I will get back to you within 24 hours at which time I will answer your initial questions and set up a free in-home consultation. This meeting usually lasts 30-45 minutes. We will discuss your pet's history, go over their regular routine, talk about their unique needs, answer all of your questions, and fill out some paperwork. This is also a good time to give us a copy of your house key.
What types of Certificates / Education do you have?
I have my Dogsafe Canine First Aid. I am a Dog Tec Certified Dog Walker. As a certified dog walker I have passed a hands-on practical exam which includes walking multiple dogs in challenging situations while demonstrating the ability to maintain voice and leash control, keep the dogs safe and ensure every dog in my care is having a great time. I have passed comprehensive written exam, in which I had to show a high level of understanding in dog behavior, theory, pack management and reading dog body language. I had to pledge to use only humane training approaches and adhere to ethical business practices.
How many dogs do you walk in a group?
I walk 3-5 dogs per group. The small numbers keep our dogs safe and allow me to watch them carefully on each walk.
Where will you be walking my dog?
I will pick up your dog and travel to any one of the wonderful off-leash dog areas we have in Kamloops. Some of my favorites are Valleyview Recreation Center Park, Dallas /Barnhartvale Park, Batchelor Open Space Park, Kenna Cartwright Park, Peterson Creek Park, Overlander Park Beach and Mission Flats Park Beach.
How long will my dog be out of the house?
Your dog will spend either 1hr or 2hr (depending on which walk you have requested) on the hike, and the time it takes for us to pick up a few of their friends and head to the park and back.
Usually, your dog will be back between 2-4 hours. Though keep in mind that I’ve been known to lose track of time if we’re having a lot of fun on the hike or at the beach and stay a little extra. I am always equipped with a cellphone, so we’re never out of reach!
