Walking with ZuluDog

Please Note: ZuluDog is not taking new walking clients at this time.

  Walking is a fundamental and primal activity for a dog.  Walking provides a dog the opportunity to experience the outside world, to bond with other dogs and leads to a balanced and fulfilled canine life.
On a walk, a dog gets to experience the world; to use their nose, eyes and ears; and to bond with other pack members, dog and human alike.  Walking provides a release of energy that helps to fulfill the basic canine need to move.  A good long walk can help reduce a dogs stress level, anxieties and fears.  This is the basis of a balanced and fulfilled K9 life and can reduce or even eliminate certain unwanted behaviours.  
It can take a lot of time to wear off a dog’s energy, especially for younger active dogs.  Because you are busy, you may not have the time to walk your dog as much as you would like to. (or as much as the dog would like you to) ZuluDog K9 Services is here to help.  Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a relaxed, quiet, well behaved dog?  It’s true... a tired dog IS a happy dog!!

Choose from one of our existing services, or have a walk customized to meet your needs.


Neighbourhood Romp
This is a great opportunity for your dog to get out of the house and to explore the neighbourhood while you are at work or away from home.  Your dog will be walked around the neighbourhood and/or played with in your yard and given lots of positive attention.  These walks are typically leash walks that provide structure and discipline for your dog, in turn, making them better walkers for you.

I’ll also change water, feed if requested and I’ll leave a report card about the days visit.
