If you're interested in becoming a bwd client, we will need to evaluate your dog to make sure that we are a good fit. And you will need to evaluate us!
For prospective Luxury Sleepover clients, we meet at bwd headquarters so you and your dog can see the space.
For Daycare, Blockwalk and Potty-Break clients, we come to you, free of charge; we need to enter your home to collect your pooch, they'll need to see that we're allowed!
bwd likes to personally meet you and your dog before committing to care. There's also some paperwork to fill out before we begin.
Due to zoning restrictions within residential Centretown, Bitches Walking Dogs is not a kennel. We are a home; and our Meet & Grrreet admittance process ensures that your dog enjoy their stay. Your pooch will be given the highest quality care; they will get tons of exercise, hugs, and love but will also have to respect the house rules.
Sleepovers are always available to current clients (sterilisation requirement).
If you are NOT a regular client already, we will only consider longer stays of a week or more.
The dogs are crated overnight. We provide the crates and the doors are closed at night only. Dogs love having a space that's just for them. The crates are comfortable and provide the necessary calming refuge that a dog may need for a vacation. Typically, we will not crate elderly dogs, Danes, or Greyhounds.
There is a human presence 100% of the time. The dogs are never left unattended, even in the back yard. Yes! There is a fully fenced back yard area. Guests get to participate in playdates, summer BBQ's and play in the snow banks or the mini pool, depending on the season, of course! They also get their Daycare or Blockwalks at no extra charge, whichever is more suited to their needs (or both!). Having an outdoor space is key for when the weather decides to be uncooperative.
The Blockwalk is the perfect way to make sure your pup gets the exercise they need while you're at work or going out for dinner. Day and night, weekday or weekend, Blockwalks can be social activities that reinforce human leadership.
Once we have your keys, we do our best to accommodate last minute requests because life happens. Sometimes you're pulling longer work hours to get that project polished. Sometimes you just can't get out of your sister's neighbour's daughter's quinceanera. Sometimes you just want to Netflix and chill.
Blockwalks are for more than just walking. bwd engages a dog's mind as well as their legs and will tire out your pooch mentally and physically. bwd teaches proper walking techniques and advanced heeling with commands like "left" "right" "sit" "stop" "wait" and "go around".
If you live in one of our service areas (see above), we will come to your house to pick up your pooch and bring them on a Blockwalk with or without a pack.
Blockwalks also come with full support and free advice from our resident behaviourist.
Our service hours are from 09h00 to 21h00.
If your dog needs more than a Blockwalk during the weekday, the Daycare is for you!
We pick-up your dog and hightail it to one of our completely fenced in local dog parks (on foot, no cars) to run around and play, off leash and supervised for two hours and then we drop them off.
This is the perfect service to train recall. This service is for friendly, energetic and spunky dogs that need hours of running and play. Puppies allowed! (All puppies must be sterilized.)
The Daycare is included with the Luxury Sleepover Service if requested, is no extra cost and is available to Centretown dogs (K1R, K1P, K2P).
For Pet Sitting Services, we recommend:
They can care for your pet (cats too!) in your own home.
If your pooch is content to lounge until you get home, then our Potty-Breaks are for you!
For a lower price, bwd will come to your home and take your furry friend out to relieve themselves.
Potty-Breaks are conducted individually by default so we can give each dog the specific attention they need. Potty-Breaks are ideal for small dogs, elderly dogs, special needs dogs, or inactive dogs.
The Potty-Breaks are also for puppies who are too young and not yet sterilised to take part in the Blockwalk.
Potty-Breaks are the automatic backup contingency for our Blockwalk in case of poor weather conditions.
Daycare is suspended on Ontario Statutory Holidays, any day when there is a projected rain forecast (snow exempted), any winter afternoon where the temperature with windchill is below -10ºC during daycare hours (winter breeds are exempted with written permission from a veterinarian), and summer days which exceed +30ºC during daycare hours, for safety reasons.
Blockwalks are suspended on Ontario Statutory Holidays, thunderstorms (or analogous), any day when the projected rain forecast is equal to or greater than 1mm precipitation during Blockwalk hours (snow exempted), any winter afternoon where the temperature with windchill is below -20ºC during Blockwalk hours (winter breeds are exempted with written permission from a veterinarian), and summer days which exceed +33ºC with humidity between 11h00 and 16h00, for safety reasons. Blockwalks are the contingency if Daycare is cancelled for any reason.
Potty-Breaks are suspended on Ontario Statutory Holidays. Since Potty-Breaks are conducted individually and daytime thunderstorms are rare or very quick, bwd can usual work around them should they occur. Potty-Breaks are the backup contingency should both the Daycare and Blockwalks be cancelled due to poor weather. Clients can opt-out of this policy and cancel the day's services with an email. We would only not be able to reach your dog if there were unsafe driving conditions.
The Weather Contingencies for evening services are on a case by case basis.
Luxury Sleepover Services are always available unless otherwise stated in the Calendar.
On questionable days, you can find out which contingency is in effect by visiting the bwd facebook.
Should services be cancelled, updates are posted ~09h00. These policies are subject to change without warning.
