We're here to serve you
and your best friend
At FitDoggo, we’ll care for your pets as if they were our own.
We will collect your pup at home.
For your convenience, we will collect your pet at home. We like to spend 5 – 10 minutes before the walk to introduce ourselves to you and to get to know your pup. After all, your doggo will want to know whether we’re the real deal before he goes anywhere with us.
We walk in your area
Your pet is a member of the family, and we don’t expect you to allow a stranger to drive off with a family member, even if it is to the nearest park. For this reason, we will only walk in your residential area. Each walk starts at your front door, and we will walk no further than a 2 – 5km distance from your home.
We'll keep you updated
We’re not into walking and texting. But we’ll stop twice during the walk, to send you one or two pictures of your dog on the walk, for your peace of mind. Anything for an impromptu photo shoot. We will also share a route report with you via e-mail after the walk.
WE'LL BRING TREATS
We think it’s important to reward polite behavior with a well-timed small, meaty treat on the walk. We won’t over-do it, and we will get your approval beforehand.
WE'LL TAKE BREAKS
It’s important to keep your pup hydrated at all times when walking. We’ll closely monitor your dog throughout the walk to ensure that he stays properly hydrated on the walk.
We’ll return your pup to you
After our adventure, we will return bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to your home.
For a comfortable walk, we recommend the following walking gear for your dog
A comfortable collar
It’s important to fit your dog for a comfortable collar before you purchase it. A comfortable fit should not be too tight, that is, you should be able to fit two fingers underneath it. But it should also not be loose enough to slip over your dog’s head. Check that the clasp or buckle is strong and durable.
An ID tag
Make sure that your dog’s ID tag is clearly visible when attached to the collar. And that the information you’ve entered is easy to read and up to date.
A fixed-length leash
From a training perspective, we really do recommend walking on a fixed-length leash. When using a flexi-leash, we will keep the leash at it’s shorted comfortable setting.
If your pup is a leash-puller we would recommend a no-pull harness, which gently curbs pulling by changing the pivot point of the leash.
A warm coat on cooler days
If your pup is quite small or lean or has a thin coat, a puppy jacket can make walks on colder days more comfortable.
