City Rover Social Walks

Looking for a fun way to explore the city with your dog?  Want to practice walking your pup around other dogs?  Are you interested in mini games and challenges?  City Rover might just be for you!

Each week we'll lead a group of dogs and their owners in an hour long walk, incorporating basic obedience skills, socialization and exposure to new things and environments.  This is a drop in class meaning you can come to as many or as few as you like; there's no commitment to months worth of classes.  Each location will have something unique to offer our furry friends.

There is a limited number of spots available so be sure to sign up in advance for each walk you want to attend. Payment must be made when you sign up. Let us know as soon as you can if you have to reschedule. We are unable to offer refunds on walks, but if cancellations are made before 24 hours in advance we will credit for the next City Rover. Please keep in mind this is an outdoor walk and is weather dependent; we will not run in extreme weather. In the event of cancellations due to weather, we will offer a make up date at no extra charge.

Cost: $20/dog per drop in. Unlimited handlers- feel free to bring the whole family!

 

Rules are in place to keep owners and dogs safe. We want to make this a positive experience for everyone. We ask that you abide by the rules and share them with anyone who may accompany you and your dog. Owners and dogs who are not following the rules and are being disruptive to other families will be asked to leave and will receive no refund. We are here as a community to help one another!

 

Rules:

  • All dogs must provide proof of up to date vaccinations including bordetella; if your dog is feeling under the weather, wait until they are healthy before bringing them to our facility.

  • Never approach or pet a dog without asking the owner first.

  • Refrain from staring or making eye contact with strange dogs unless asked to do so. Some dogs are working on socialisation with people and may be intimidated.

  • Never scold or punish a dog for barking or growling; they are letting you know that they are uncomfortable and we are here to help them.

  • Support each other! We are all here for the same reason.

  • Keep your dog on a leash at all times and maintain a good distance from other dogs and owners.

  • NO FLEXILEASHES, CHOKE CHAINS OR PRONG COLLARS ALLOWED.

  • Please clean up after your pet and be respectful of public property.

  • Have fun! 

City Rover is an hour long so to get the most out of it, be sure to show up a few minutes early. Come prepared. This includes:

  • a solid, 6 foot leash (no flexileashes or chains)

  • a buckle or martingale collar (or harness); no choke chains or prong collars

  • a clicker (if using)

  • lots of high value treats (bring more than you think you’ll need)

  • tug toy for toy‐orientated dogs
