Are dog parks safe?
We've all heard dog park horror stories, however dog parks are much less crowded during the weekdays. Canine Adventures is experienced in handling dogs and always monitors the situations to which pets are exposed. Dogs are grouped by size and/or temperament. If the dog park is crowded, an adventure will be substituted.
What about inclement weather?
All excursions are at the discretion of Canine Adventures. Adventures may be rescheduled due to extreme weather conditions to ensure your pets safety. Every adventure includes plenty of fresh water. If it's an extra warm day, dogs will be monitored closely for signs of heat exhaustion. If its just too hot or too cold, other activities may be substituted such as inside play.
How do you pick up my dog if no one is home?
You will be asked to provide a key to your home or yard during the introductory meeting. This key will only be used for scheduled visits and is never marked or stored with your name or home address.
If you have other questions that aren't answered here, please contact us.
