What we do

We walk dogs in downtown Toronto. With easy online booking and our GPS walk tracker, we walk your dog while you are busy or at work. We give your dog love, socialization, and exercise, and we keep in touch with you every step of the way.

How we do it

We use our walk tracker to update you after each journey so that you can see the quality of care your dog receives.

During walks, we use positive reinforcement techniques to reinforce good walk habits, which means we use treats and attention to reward good behaviour. Dogs showing signs of aggressive behaviour will be referred to private walks and/or a trusted trainer.

We also treat our humans well. We believe that when people are fairly compensated and respected at work, they are happier, and provide better services. Our walkers are valued Walk My Dog Toronto employees and we pay a living wage.

We believe in transparency, so since you aren’t available to come on walks with us we provide the next best thing: an email to you at the end of each walk with a map, photo, and note about your dog’s journey.

Security and transparency

At our free first meeting, we will go over all our company policies, designed to protect our walkers, your dog, and your home.

The security of your home is important to us. When not in use, we store your keys in our secure office location.

New clients

So, you’re thinking of getting a dog walker! You’re a conscientious and committed pet owner, and you’re prepared to invest in the care that your dog needs to thrive in the city.

Our dog walkers are committed, trained staff that use positive reinforcement for basic walk training. They cultivate great group dynamics for the dogs on group walks, provide personal one-on-one care during private walks, and always keep you up to date using our walk tracker.

The first step is to meet you and your dog in your home. We’ll go over our company policies and detail your dog’s needs. Once we have confirmed a good fit for your dog, you are free to book your walks online anytime.
