Welcome to Treks 4 Pets!

Let us tell you why we are different from your average dog walker in North Vancouver. 

 

Treks 4 Pets Dog Walkers: A strong company is built on happy and well-educated staff. We proudly announce that as of March 2024, we qualified as a living wage employer with "Living Wage for Families BC ."Offering benefits, vacation pay, and sick pay to each full-time staff member. All staff are Pet First Aid certified through "Walks N Wags Pet First Aid" and given one week of intensive dog handling and behavioural training before handling the dogs solo. We also offer each dog walker the option to take the fully paid Karen Pryor Fondations online dog training course. These steps, along with a supportive and communicative system with our highly trained office managers, give our clients and their pups the best team of dog walkers a dog mom or dad could ask for. 

 

Treks 4 Pets Vehicles: We take the transportation of your loved ones very seriously. We have a fleet of company vehicles that are always well-cared for. We have our fleet taken care of by Derosa Automotive Services and follow our mechanics' recommended service and maintenance. Including regular servicing and ensuring our vehicles are equipped with winter tires throughout the winter months. We have a maximum capacity of 8 dogs in the Ford Transit vans and 5 in our Toyota RAV 4's. The Ford Transit vans are equipped with four crates, two big and two small and four clip-in spots in our group area to accommodate all dog personalities and sizes. The Toyota RAV 4 has three dogs maximum in our trunk space and a two dog maximum with clip-in spots in the back seat. 

 

Treks 4 Pets Services: We offer private walks and small group hikes. Group hikes have 3-4 dogs, forming a balanced dog walk group. This size is big enough for healthy socialization but small enough for the dog walker to maintain a safe learning environment. The smaller group sizes allow the dog walker to give the attention and care needed to create healthy relationships with each pack member. We offer a range of private walks for the pups who need more attention or training while exploring the forest or walking the neighbourhood. Only some pups are fit for group hiking, and we accommodate each pup's needs. 

 

Treks 4 Pets Email Updates:  Communication is one of the most essential parts of successful dog walking. After each dog walk, you will receive an email containing a personal update from your dog walker. Including photos of your pup and a map showing the distance, time and route of each dog walk. These updates will familiarize you with your dog walker and the dogs who regularly walk with your pup. If behavioural issues arise, we always notify the parents and work with them to develop training solutions. This ensures your dog has a safe space to socialize with their pack and explore the forest. 

 

 In addition to having detailed notes on each dog, we offer GPS collars on each and every pup. We use Tractive GPS, the most highly-rated GPS tracker on the market today.

Treks 4 Pets is a locally run business based out of Lynn Valley, North Vancouver.
