WELCOME TO NORTHBOUND & HOUND DOG WALKING

Does your dog need an exercise buddy?

Maybe you work from home and just can't find the time to take your dog out or perhaps you work long hours or have a busy family and you find your dog isn't getting the amount of exercise it needs. I would love to help! Based on the size and breed of your dog, I can tailor the walk to meet their physical requirements. Maybe they need a slower paced walk around your neighbourhood or perhaps you have an energetic dog that enjoys a bit of running or hiking, whatever the situation I will make sure your dog is feeling happy, staying healthy and most of all tuckered out at the end of each walk!

ABOUT ME

Sara Parker, Owner & Primary walker

20180811_150800[1].jpg

I’ve always loved dogs and have been lucky enough to have had at least one living with me my entire life. They eagerly greet you at the door, recognize the many nicknames you give them over the years and solidify their place in your famiIy by leaving their paw prints on your heart. I promise to always provide a nurturing and safe environment and treat your dog as if it was my own. I have experience with many different breeds and sizes of dogs. Our 7 year old retired racing greyhound named Cruz comes with me on all of the walks!
As an avid walker/hiker/runner I would love to have your dog join us on their own little adventure!

SAFETY

There are many aspects about safety that will be taken into consideration prior to walking your dog and during the walk. With the responsibility of your dog's safety in my hands, you can rest assured that your dog will be walked on leash at all times. The dogs are clipped to my walking belt which enables me to keep them safe from wandering away and getting lost, any encounters with wildlife and from eating something they shouldn't be! In the event of severe temperatures such as a heat wave, I will be sure to offer plenty of water and shade with more frequent breaks.  During winter time I will ensure your dog is walking safely when the temperature dips by monitoring conditions such as icy sidewalks.

“Sara has been walking our dog Sherman for several months now and he is always beyond excited when she comes to the door. From the first time Sara entered our home, you can tell that she has a love of dogs. She is calm, patient and caring. Sherman always returns so happy from his walks and you can tell that he loves her. She's amazing!”

"Sara is the ultimate dog walker! She is energetic, trustworthy and professional. My dog Neko has special needs and requires different attention during walks. Sara took the time to talk about her needs and really establish a relationship with both Neko and myself. Her dog Cruz is a mellow walking companion, just what Neko needed! Neko has flourished and is much better since meeting them both. She put my mind at ease, knowing that Neko would get amazing support and exercise. Thanks Sara and Cruz! We love you both."
