Professional Dog Walking Services
Pet ownership isn’t always a walk in the park. Happy Tails Urban Adventures is here to alleviate the stress (on both you and your four-legged friends) and give your pets the tools & experience they need to really, truly thrive! Check out all our offered services below.
Private Dog Walks
Select a 30 or 60-minute walk depending on your individual dog’s exercise needs. Each walk will be custom-tailored to your dog’s needs but will always include:
- Walk time (leashed or off-leash depending on your individual dog)
- Post-walk report so that you know how your dog’s trip went
30-minute walk: $42.00 + GST
60-minute walk: $56.00 + GST
*$15.00 per additional dog from the same household
How To Choose The Right Walk Duration
Not sure whether to choose a 30 or 60-minute walk for your dog? Here’s our advice!
- 30-minute walks are ideal for lower energy dogs needing to get out and stretch their legs
- 60-minute walks are ideal for dogs needing a little more training or exposure to environmental triggers. Additionally, a 60-minute walk is best if you’d prefer your dog have an off-leash adventure
It’s time for an adventure! Your dog will get to explore local trails alongside well-matched canine friends—one or two other dogs based on size, play style, and temperament.
90 minute hike: $46.00 + GST per dog

Frequently Asked Questions
Where will you walk my dog?
For private on-leash walks, we explore your own neighbourhood so your dog has the opportunity to sniff and relieve themselves. Depending on your dog’s individual needs, we can vary our walk routes each visit or stick to a specific, regular route. If we need to drive your dog to a different location, the driving time will be taken into account of the total walk time.
For Buddy Hikes, we transport a maximum of 3 dogs to one of the City of West Vancouver permitted commercial dog walking trails:
- Ballantree Park
- Cypress Falls Park
- Douglas Woodward Park
- Klahanie Park (trails only)
- McKechnie Park
- Millstream Park
- Brothers Creek Park
Will my dog be off-leash?
Can you take my dog to the dog park?
Depending on your dog, we may choose to visit one of many off-leash trails so your dog has the choice and freedom to interact with others on their own terms.
My dog doesn't like other dogs/young children/loud noises. Can you still walk my dog?
Can you train my dog as well?
When does the clock start for my dog's walk?
Can you walk my dog at the exact same time each day?
For example: If you are scheduled for 3 pm, you can expect your walker to arrive sometime between 2 pm and 4 pm. This window helps us manage constantly varying schedules and unexpected situations.
What equipment do you use?
Can you walk my neighbour/friend/relative’s dog at the same time?
Our private dog walks are customized to meet the needs of each individual dog. Walking multiple dogs will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Pet Well-being, Health and Safety
