This dog walking service will provide a consistent routine of exercise, affection, socialization and fun for your dog. This personal private dog walk will ensure your dog is engaged with positive human guidance and experienced leadership.

This service is available on either a regular basis or on a temporary basis for vacations or business trips.

Affectionately known as The Mini, this private dog walking service provides your dog with the relief of a potty break and a quick stretch of his legs. This walk can be a snoop around town walk, a relaxing walk or a fast paced working walk. Your dog can then relax and retire to his favourite spot to await your return home.

The Mini is great for senior dogs who need a shorter walk, dogs recovering from injury or surgery, or any dog who just needs to get out of the house for some fresh air and stimulation.

This walk is implemented when the weather is either too warm or too cold for your dog.

Hours for this dog walking service: Monday to Friday: 9:00am to 4:00pm.

1. Current Distemper combo or titer test results; 2. Annual Bordatella vaccine for kennel cough and flea/parasite control program; 3. Current Rabies vaccine; 4. Basic leash manners; 5. Current dog license (not mandatory).

Vaccines are required to help prevent our pets from getting serious and sometimes fatal diseases. It is, however, very important that we do not over-vaccinate our pets. So with that in mind, my above policy where I recommend all vaccines are either current or titer test results indicate vaccination is currently not required is simply that - just my recommendation. If you are a pet owner whose veterinarian advises a more conservative and holistic approach to vaccines due to health concerns or an existing disease - we can certainly discuss this further at our initial consultation.

If your pup is currently receiving medication or supplementation, please advise at time of booking as a small additional fee may be charged for regular administration of medication.

Signature Pet Services reserves the right to refuse any dog that is anti-social, intact, in heat, pregnant, ill or injured, recovering from injury, and/or who may cause harm to other pets, itself, or the public or who is otherwise unsuitable for Signature Pet Services.
