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 hours are evenings and weekends. Our last run of the day can be scheduled for 8:30pm. If you need a Mon-Fri day time jog, ask and we will see what we can do for you.

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, 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 a run.

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.
