Want to come home to a tired dog?

Get your dog out of the house and into nature! We can pick up your pup from your home and take them out for a day of fun & exercise with a group of other dogs. Then you get to come home to a pooped pooch and awesome photos of their adventure!

We take the dogs to our own private dog park - it's fenced for dogs and much safer than a public park. Plus there's a bath to wash off in at the end of the day!

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Meet and greet! Before your dog can come on an adventure with us - we need to make sure they're a good fit. We'll come to your home and take your dog for a short walk to see if they'll fit in with our pack.
  2. Book your dog in! Once we've met your dog, you can book them in for a walk. Just let us know what day you'd like. We require dogs to be booked in for a regular day at least once a week.
  3. Pick up time! We come to pick up your pooch between 9:00am-11:00am. We can pick up your dog even if you aren't home - just let us know how we can reach your pup.
  4. Adventure! We drive all the dogs out to our private park and run around with them! We generally spend about 3 hours at the park. When it's time to leave we wash the dogs off and then it's back in the dog bus for a sleepy trip home.
  5. Drop off! We drop off dogs between 3:00pm-5:00pm. Once again - you don't need to be home for us to drop your dog off.

Our Private Park

That's right! We have our own exclusive park where we walk the dogs. The park is huge and it includes a creek, a mini forest, wide open grass spaces, lots of trees to rest under, and a bath to wash off in before heading home.

It's fenced, there's no other dogs or people around, no pest baiting and it's just a 5 minute drive to a vet should anything go wrong plus all our walkers are pet first-aid trained.

Here's a few photos from around the park:

FAQ

Can I cancel a booking?

Yes! Please let us know before 6pm, the day before your dog is booked in for a walk.

Will my dog come back dirty?

Not too dirty! If your dog likes mud they may get quite grubby - but we'll give any grubby dogs a quick rinse off before heading back. They certainly might come home wet and if they have long hair they might have bits of nature in their fur!

Do you still walk when the weather is bad?

We walk the dogs in pretty much any weather condition. From time to time we may cancel due to extreme weather conditions - we'll let you know as soon as possible if this is the case.

What if something happens to my dog?

We love dogs and we'll always endeavour to make sure your pup is safe and looked after. We do our best to provide a safe environment at the park and all our walkers are pet first aid trained. If your dog does hurt themselves we will do our best to help your dog get the attention it needs. Unfortunately in the unlikely event that something happens to your dog we can't be held liable for any expenses.

Do you do homestays/pet sits?

We do from time to time - but we don't have set pricing or availability. Get in touch with your walker if you'd like to set something up.

Is my dog suitable?

Our main requirements are that your dog is good with other dogs, is vaccinated and monitored for fleas and is older than 4-6 months (breed and behaviour dependent). We can take entire dogs - but they are limited to specific days depending on their sex.

What training style do you use?

We use positive reinforcement & treat training to teach dogs new things, and reinforce commands and rules with corrections - like a light tug on a leash or a confident "no". Training is suited to the dog - a little, older poodle isn't trained the same way as a young, excitable lab. We do not use pain or fear to train dogs and we do not use prong or shock collars.

We’re happy to demonstrate our training at meet & greets and doing so can help create consistency in training between owner & walker. Clients are often impressed with how much better their dog’s recall or leash manners are after coming out with us!
