Arbutus Bark offers dog walking, puppy visits, dog running and dog sitting in Victoria, BC. We specialize in on-leash neighborhood group walking. Meaning we pick up at your home on foot and we walk in your neighborhood, your dog will not be off leash, nor travel in a vehicle. We believe group walks provide dogs with positive socialization, exercise and good old fashioned dog fun. By keeping the pack moving together they are connected in a non-confrontation positive manner, and each dog is treated as a valued member of the pack. Anxious or nervous dogs often calm in the pack environment as it provides the structure for a relaxed state of mind.
We strive to provide personalized services in Victoria with Matt arranging weekday dog walks and Mhairi providing evening and weekend outings. We do not have additional dog walkers, your dog is guaranteed to walk with one of us. We do provide off leash park time for dogs on private walks at your request, always in a fenced off leash dog area, we love Anderson Hill in Oak Bay for play time.
We want you to come home to a happy, relaxed dog who has been exercised and socialized. We understand work and leisure schedules are busy and unpredictable; we are able to provide top quality pet care for your dog when your schedule may not allow it. Whether you are working, travelling, injured or just busy, we will be there for you and your dog allowing you peace of mind and providing fun and exercise for your four-legged family member.
Our top priority is to provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment for your dog. All dogs in our care are treated like part of our family allowing you to relax knowing your dog is always in good hands. We are licensed, insured and certified in canine first aid.
