Rain City Dogs hikes we have 2 walkers with our crew. We only take max 12 dogs per hike (that’s 6 dogs per walker) We constantly work on your basic training with your dog while walking. We also have over 20+ years pet experience.
We pride ourselves on safety and all walks will initially be on-leash. This allows us to learn your dog’s personality, read their body language, work on training adherence and avoid any unexpected situations such as squirrels, loose dogs or other triggers. Once we have established a good relationship with your dog and have assessed his recall response we can work towards off-leash hikes.
You can provide us with a copy of your key(s) or you may choose to place your key(s) in a secret predetermined location for us to access. Alternatively, you may arrange to be home when we pick up and drop off.
Our Hikes are 2.5 to 3 Hours Long (not including travel time) we pride ourselves in having long hikes to make sure your dog is tired!
ABSOLUTELY! We walk rain or shine and most dogs love to get dirty. We ask that you keep a towel handy so that we can dry your dog before we let them into your home. We will do our very best to clean and dry your dog but there is a limit as to how much time we can spend on each dog. We are happy to leave your dog in a designated area if you wish – please just let us know.
Advanced notice is always preferred, however you can still cancel up to 24 hours in advance without penalty. A full fee will be charged to you if cancelled afterwards. In emergency situations there are exceptions.
We will work your dog to walk with the crew and be well behaved with the other dogs. We will also reinforce a good recall so he will come to us when called. Any other training is best left to you (your trainer) and the dog one on one. we ask that all dogs have basic training.
Absolutely we do! and pick up and drop off times vary depending on the route we need to pick up the dogs for the day. but we start our day at 9:30 AM and last dog is normally dropped off around 4:00 PM
Yes! this is our way to help with positive training. an example would be if we see a dog too far away we call them back to us. ask them to sit and give them a treat for great listening! We know some dogs have allergies, that why we stay away from basic protein treats like chicken and go with more different proteins (crickets, bison, duck)
