We specialize in off-leash group walks.
Enroll your dog in our group walks, and we will pick him or her up at your house, load them into the "pooch mobile" and bring them and their friends to a great walking area.
Once there, your dog will enjoy an off-leash walk at a beautiful property, complete with fields, forest, and a stream.
We walk for at least an hour, then load back into the van for the ride home. Depending on the day and where you live, your dog will be out of the house for anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.
We have the opportunity to walk at a dedicated, privately owned dog park. It is only used by professional dog walkers, which helps reduce the risk of unknown dogs and people.
The park is a fully fenced, 100 acre piece of property north of Kanata, towards Dunrobin. It consists of about 65 acres of field, and 35 acres of forest.
There are mowed paths throughout the field area, and paths in the forest. There is a good sized stream on the property, with plenty of swimming areas. During the spring, there is even a waterfall!
It is truly a dog paradise, and your dog would love it!
Group walks are for the enjoyment of the dogs. That is why the walks are off-leash only, except for special circumstances. Dogs are truly happier, and get more exercise, when they have the freedom that being off-leash provides.
Safety is important though, so every dog has to have good recall, and has to be well socialized with other dogs.
We strive to have a balanced pack, where every dog knows the rules, and knows what the boundaries are. Good dog manners are encouraged.
Because dogs are pack animals, new dogs are usually able to fit into the established pack hierarchy fairly quickly with a little help from us.
The Pooch Mobile is a well maintained 2010 Toyota Sienna van.
The rear seats have been removed, and a padded, dirt resistant layer has been placed on the floor. The van is equipped with air conditioning front and rear, and heat in the front and rear for those cold winter days.
As well, a barrier is installed to keep the furry passengers out of the front area to prevent distractions to the driver.
The van often smells like dog, but the passengers don't seem to mind.
