Dog Walking

All dogs have access to fresh water, toys and healthy treats, and of course, close supervision at all times. We really do believe that the majority of dogs benefit most from group walks with other dogs. It gives them a chance to engage in instinctual healthy, and also drains all that extra restless energy from being alone in the house during the work day.

Boarding

Vacations are so much more enjoyable when you don’t have to worry about your dog’s whereabouts! Our home-style boarding is cage free, and full of the same comforts your dog is used to in your own home. Boarding your dog while you are away doesn’t have to be a source of stress any more. No kennels, no cages, and no strange facility to worry about – your dog’s routine will remain as close to what they are used to as possible. Since we are out in the parks walking our usual pack every day, your dog will join us and take part in our group walks, park outings and other fun activities we have planned for our own dogs. When boarding with us, your dog will go on at least two group walks every day. Exercise and social interaction are as important as getting a good night’s sleep.

Nightly Fees

“Bryan and Rather Be Dog Walking have consistently provided stellar care for my border collie cross, Kali. Working from home, I had the chance to see Kali’s joy first-hand when Bryan arrived, and her blissful exhaustion when she returned home hours later. It’s tremendously comforting to know Kali is in the care of somebody she loves, and who loves her right back. Do your dog a favour and give them some time with Bryan.”

“As a member of the golden oldies crew, I would like to thank the folks at Rather Be Dog Walking for always pushing my bum up into the car. I may not be as spry as I use to be but I’m still super frisky. This is my 10th year with Rather Be Dog Walking. I started out with Melissa when I was just a pup. Now Bryan is my main man. Thanks for all the great walks!!!!” – Zephyr

“They call me Rocks, they call me Rock Star. I actually like to eat rocks. I am not the type that will be quieted but Bryan is my main man. When he speaks, I listen. I never thought I’d get to run, off leash with the wind at my back, but Bryan made this happen. Bryan-you are a rock star!” – Rocky

I “wuf” to get out and play with my friends, get some fresh air, play and get out of the house! I’d rather be walking than laying around the house all day! – Chester

“The highlight of my day is my time with Bryan and my friends! I love running and playing, chewing sticks, chasing the ball that Bryan throws for us and hunting for squirrels of course! I first met Melissa five years ago and fell in love with her. She is so friendly and loving and always has lots of cookies in her pockets! Now Bryan takes good care of me and all my pals. He especially loves the snow as I do, although I can’t seem to convince him to roll around in it with me or eat it. My mom also loves Rather Be Dog Walking because she says that she can always count on Melissa and Bryan to take good care of me.” – Charlotte
