NEW! We have space for a few more puppers to join our offleash groups Tue, Wed, and Thursday. Priority for clients in Halifax Hydrostone, North, West, and South End neighbourhoods as well as Dartmouth Commodore/Westphal neighbourhoods.

All walks include a water refresh, complimentary treats (diets and special needs pending), and a wipe down for dirty feet and fur if needed. AND, for our human clients, a regular update on what your dog did during their walk either left in your dog's personalized care booklet or sent straight to your phone, including information on who we walked with, what we saw, any behavioural observations, and whether they had a bathroom trip! We also take pictures on our walks so you can see those candid shots of their daily adventures. Walk locations depend on the client's location, the service option, and the dog cohort. We usually have more space for dogs that can be walked on a flex schedule (a mix of on and off-leash) but can accommodate special needs that might necessitate a particular walking environment.

Boarding and Pet Sitting

Note: we currently do not have boarding space for new clients. However, we do plan to hire a new helper in Winter 2020. Feel free to reach out about being added to our waitlist! We do still have Visits available.

Some of PugBoat's walkers also offer boarding and pet sitting. At PugBoat we offer flexible boarding services, from visits to daycare to overnight stays. Unless your dog prefers crate sleeping, all PugBoat clients have free roam of your walker's home during their stay, including during sleeping hours. We try to emulate an environment as close to your home as possible while maintaining a safe enjoyable experience for your buddy. We also like to keep them paired with your regular walker for their boarding/sitting services, so they can continue to work on that important bond. All boarding services include at least a 16hr stay, regular walks and pee breaks, and constant love and attention. Your dog is our dog for the length of their stay. For both our canine and feline friends, we offer a flexible boarding location where possible. Typically cats prefer to stay in their own home, with regular visits. Depending on your preference and our walkers' availability, we might be able to offer dog boarding in the walkers' home or sitting in your home. Sometimes in-home sitting is the best option where there are many pets to take care of, if you are only gone a few hours, or if your pet can't be boarded for some reason. Visits are typically a half-hour service and include any needed feedings, playtime, or let outs. Contact us to discuss your pet's unique needs.
