Small-Dog Group Walks

Safe & fun reward-based leashed group hikes in Langford for small dogs to enjoy!

Coming Soon!

Our group walks specialize in the exercise, comfort, and safety of small dogs. These 60+ minute on-leash walks take little dogs through the many forested trails that the Westshore has to offer.

Our walkers follow reward-based methods carrying treats on every walk. We will never use shock, choke, or prong collars, spray bottles, shake cans, or any other form of aversives, as we are educated on the risks of potential side effects with such methods including fear, anxiety and aggression. We aim to provide a fun, stimulating and enriching experience for every dog in our care using treats, praise and affection.

We chose to offer our walking services specifically to small dogs as we continue to recognize the inadequate opportunities for small dogs to socialize safely among similar-sized friends. If you have ever considered group dog walking for your petite pup, but haven’t gone through with it due to your own safety concerns, unreliable off-leash skills, and/or your pup’s insecurities about interacting with larger dogs, our small dog group walks offer the perfect solution.
