Don’t feel guilty about leaving your pet alone. My Pop In service gives your pet maximum care, even when you can’t be there.
I spend 20 minutes with your pup for a quick potty break, snuggle, play session, water refresh, & feeding if need be.
Good for: Puppies, Senior dogs, Long Work/School Days, Enrichment, Adaptability
These 30 to 60 minute 1-on-1 walks
provide ample opportunity for decompression in the middle of a long work day, or to provide light training tailored to your pup's unique needs.
Good for: Socialization, Enrichment, Adaptability, Confidence, Training
Wilderness Group Hikes
My small pack enjoys off leash adventures through multi-trail wilderness areas. With access to everything in nature from sticks & streams to lakes & logs sniff, we spend a minimum of 60 minutes sniffing, making friends, taking a dip, & decompressing far from the noisy city streets.
Good for: Socialization, Enrichment, Critical Thinking, Adaptability, Confidence

Frequently Asked Questions
Everything You Need to Know
Tiny Pack... does that mean you only work with small dogs?
No, I work with dogs of all shapes & sizes. Tiny pack is in reference to the small group sizes. Dogs are grouped by size, temperament, & play style to ensure everyone enjoys their adventure.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am insured & bonded through PROfur.
Do you have canine first aid training?
Yes, I have canine first aid training from Walks N Wags First Aid, as well as DogSafe First Aid. I also have canine behaviour & play group management training.
What training methods do you use?
I follow a force, fear, & pain-free approach with scientifically proven positive reinforcement (R+) methods to teach appropriate behaviours in & out of the situation.
How will I know what my dog has done during your visit?
Visits, walks, & hikes are all tracked via GPS. You will receive a text/email at the beginning of our adventure so you can follow along. You will have access to a log with a map of our adventure, timestamped potty breaks, notes about our adventures, & highlight pictures.
