Dog walking excursions:
On-leash nature and urban exploration walks
My dog walking excursions take us through various parks and trails as well as various hoods other than the dog's own direct neighborhood. We go heavier on the park/trail walks because I love getting city pups back to nature. It's an amazing treat for their senses. We mix it up with occasional hood treks in areas that have beautiful gardens and lush vegetation for variety.
I cater the activity to the day and the dogs on board. So if it's hot, the shady trails are the way to go, whereas if it's a windy, stormy day, then picking an interesting hood to explore is a safer bet. If I have a couple slower-paced sniffers on board then an easy-going trail is an order, whereas if I have a couple go go go pups, a more adventurous, hilly trail route may be what's on the agenda. I enjoy breaking into a jog too if the pups are up for a faster moving pace. Safety, dog's energy levels and fun always dictate the walking destinations.
My excursions are unique in the field of dog walking. Most dog walkers just walk dogs around the dog's own neighborhood which can get boring and lacks the nature element that dogs' crave. I like to give my pups something a bit more exciting!
Your dog gets to share their activity with a walking buddy. They have different pals on different days so it's a great social experience for them, which makes everything so much more fun! Since I don't take them in a big pack there is no over crowding in the car, no hyped up frenzy that can be created when too many go together, just a fun adventure with a buddy.
I send photos to you daily of your pup's adventures
Excursion walks are 50 - 60 minutes at the walking location. Each excursion also includes additional time to pick up a pal and get to and from the walking location so keep in mind, the total excursion time may be as much as 90 minutes.
$35 per excursion
