FAQ

We don’t want you to have any questions about your dog and Dog Jogs left unanswered! If your question hasn’t already been answered below, please get in touch!

What types of dogs can jog?
  • It depends, both small and large dogs are capable of running, but this decision is more about your dog’s energy level, body type, and endurance. For example, we run 10 pound terriers and 100 pound great pyrenees. Both of these dogs have vet approval. If you aren’t sure if your dog should join Dog Jogs, speak to your vet first!

Do you run in all weather?
  • Yes! Rain or shine (and during snowy days) we will run your pup, unless there are extreme weather conditions that are unsafe, such as: thunderstorms, lightning, hail, and extreme cold or heat. We will still jog on hot summer days and cold winter days, but let us know what you know about your dog’s comfort level. Ultimately, hot/cold decisions are up to you!

What are your hours?
  • Currently our walking/jogging hours are 9am-9pm Monday through Sunday. We use time blocks for booking:

    Morning-9am-11am

    Lunch-11am-2pm

    Afternoon-2pm-5pm

    Evening-5pm-9pm

    Anytime-9am-9pm for those long days when it doesn’t really matter what time your dog gets out.

How long will you jog my dog?
  • Our jogs are typically 1 hour in length or 3-10km depending on each dogs ability. Each jog includes a warm up walk, pee breaks as needed, jogging, and a cool down. We will discuss what your dog’s current ability is and work with your dog to build their endurance.

How many dogs do you run at once?
  • We like to focus on jogging one dog at a time, unless they are from the same house. When running in a small pack of dogs from the same house hold, we pace the dogs to jog at the slowest dog’s pace.

Do you pick up my dog? How does this work?
  • Yes, we do pick up your dog. We offer runs while you’re at work and when you’re home. We will come to your home (or work place) to take your dog for a jog and return them. No need to rush home after work before the big game! GO OILERS!

Will you jog my dog on or off leash?
  • It depends on the owners preference and the dog’s recall, but typically we keep dogs on leash and would only take them off leash in designated off leash areas.

How do you handle cancellations?
  • Things happen, but we prefer 24 hours notice to reschedule any service.  We do charge full price when a cancellation happens within 24 hours.

How do I know I can trust you?
  • Dog Jogs is fully insured and both Steph and Nikki are certified with Pet First Aid through Walks N’ Wags Pet First Aid.
