My Very First AMA on Reddit : )

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Walking | No Comments

Hello All, I have been a quiet Redditor for a little while now and have enjoyed reading all sorts of different things on a wide variety of topics, including, OF COURSE, dogs! Yesterday there was a request for a professional dog walker/boarder to do an AMA (ask me anything) to answer whatever questions people may have… so I did. I’d love for anyone who wants to know… well anything… to pop in and ask. I think this is such a great platform for people from all walks of life to connect and am super happy to take part in it. My parrot “Doggy” and I are all ready to go… Love to hear from you! http://www.reddit.com/r/dogs/comments/2liy79/as_requested_i_am_a_professional_dog/     Ally & The Pack xoxo

Over the last few years we have been looking for something very special. After a long and exhaustive search we have finally found it: our new Doggy Daycare and Boarding facility right in downtown Toronto!We are the proud new owners of a spectacular 3500 sqft. Detached Victorian home that we are dedicating entirely to the dog pack! This new location will give us both an ample INDOOR and OUTDOOR space to run, play, cuddle and sleep that is ALL OUR OWN!We’ve got soooo many fantastic ideas that will make this space one of a kind in Toronto and can’t wait to share all the info and pictures with you all once we get in there and get our paws dirty. We will have our Grand Opening this spring and you are all invited to come and play and celebrate with us! Until then keep an eye out for exciting news and info! I personally want to thank all my pack mom and pack dads who have supported me and trusted me with their dogs over the last 7 years! Without you all I could never have been able to open this new facility!We were just getting over the high and excitement of the new Country Dog Ranch and feel so lucky to have found a downtown location as well. Times are a changin’ and we are so excited to share in it with our pack family! I really look forward to playing with your pups every day at the brand new Downtown Toronto “Muttroppolis by Soulmutts”.Love, Hugs and Kisses Ally xoxoxoxo

DOG WALKING

2 HOUR OFF LEASH PACK OUTING

We spend ONE FULL HOUR+ at our private 1.5 acre off leash dog run for HIGH ENERGY play. It is fully fenced so lower energy and/or older dogs can, of course, move at their own pace freely. Like humans, dogs are social creatures and require off leash, energetic socializing time in order to be well balanced and happy.  We pick up and drop off to/from your home and transport our pack in a customized, fully temperature controlled Ford E250 commercial fleet van.  There is a 3 day/week minimum on pack walks in order to maintain consistency at the dog run.

Dog Walking Rate $18.00/2 Hour Outing     (Includes Pick Up & Drop Off)

DOG DAYCARE

6 HOUR DAY OUTING

We do doggy daycare differently! We provide a high energy day outing that keeps your dog on the move. Instead of having a place that dogs sit around in all day long, we pick them up in the morning and they are out playing at our 1.5 private dog run in the city. Our walking dogs, daycare dogs and boarding dogs all play together at the dog run, along with the dogs from the two other companies who have exclusive access to the private dog run. This is a super social, energetic, full day for the dogs and at the end of the day we drop your dog back off at home.  They are totally pooped out and waiting for you when you get back from work! We only transport our pack in our safety customized, fully temperature controlled Ford E250 commercial fleet van. There is a 3 day/week minimum on pack walks in order to maintain consistency at the dog run.

Dog Daycare Rate $30.00/6 HOURS     (Includes Pick Up & Drop Off)

DOG BOARDING

24 hour overnight

When dogs stay with Soulmutts Toronto they live with us side by side like one of the family. They’ll never be lonely here that’s for sure. We always have dogs staying with us and we take them with us EVERYWHERE! Our high energy days leave our boarding dogs tuckered out by the end of the day so they sleep soundly through the night in their very own private bedroom.

During the week (Monday to Friday) your dog will accompany us and the pack on all day outings (8am – 4:30pm). We spend our days in our 1.5 acre private fully fenced forest dog run. Shared with two other dog walking companies that we’ve known forever, it is a genuine slice of the wild right here in the down town core. Our packs consist of all kinds of dogs, large and small, young and old.  We are a very high energy pack and love to run, chase balls and wrestle, but those pack mates that like to move at a slower pace are free to do so comfortably.
We do not crate or pen dogs that are staying with us unless we are specifically asked to for crate training or behavioural purposes (chewing and/or scratching doors/furniture, etc). We don’t spend too much time indoors but when we do we love to snuggle up for some belly rubs.

Dog Boarding Rate $45.00/24 Hrs.

DOG BOARDING

Weekend Dog Ranch

New for the summer of 2014!! We now have a dog ranch. Send your dog away with us from Friday – Sunday for an amazing nature adventure. CHECK OUT PHOTOS ON THE NEW SITE!

Weekend Dog Ranch Boarding Rate $150 Friday – Sunday   (May to October ONLY)

DOG WALKING, DAYCARE & BOARDING

The Need To Know


VACCINATION

We cannot accept any dog that has not been fully vaccinated to participate in any group activities. Puppies that are receiving their last set of shots and are just starting off with group walks can accompany us but must be kept on leash at all times. This is for their own safety and to ensure that they are not getting into anything at the dog park.

SPAYING & NEUTERING

We cannot accept any unfixed dogs in our pack. We fully support and encourage the spaying & neutering of dogs and cats. Puppies that are still too young to be spayed/neutered are exempt from this rule.

TEMPERAMENT AND BEHAVIOUR

We cannot accept any dog that displays overtly aggressive or uncontrollable behavior. We absolutely believe that each and every dog can be trained and/or rehabilitated, however these skills require proper training and the pack environment is not suitable for such exercises. The safety of our pack mates must come first and foremost!

WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY FEES


+ $5.00 FOR EVENINGS


+ $5.00 FOR WEEKENDS


+ $10.00 FOR STAT HOLIDAYS


What is Personal Dog Walking?

“Personal” Dog Walking means one on one, flexible service for you and your dog. Larger companies have a staff of multiple dog walkers who take on different routes in the city. You may not always have the same walker coming from walk to walk, the dogs that make up the pack change and rotate and it can be difficult to get in direct contact with the actual person who is with your dog on any given day.

It is important to me that my pack moms and dads know that they can reach out to me at any time. I like to know if your dog has an upset tummy, you can change your schedule if something comes up, or if you’re coming home later that day and need me to put some food down for your dog.

I am a trained pack leader offering trustworthy and personal care. My dog pack is my family. As each new member joins us, they become an integral part of my pack, my family and my life. We play together, have sleepovers, go on night walks, out of town retreats, beach picnics, and much more. It is very important for me to create and nurture these bonds because, after all, this is why I do what I do.

Bringing a dog walker in your life is not just about finding someone to drag your dog around the block or up and down, up and down a million elevators. It’s about finding someone who can create a solid routine that involves group socialization, skill building & good behaviour reinforcement and allow your dog to really stretch their legs and run as a part of a pack in nature.

I would love to meet with you and your dog to see if I am the perfect dog walker for you!

BIGGER.  CLEANER.  SAFER.  PRIVATE.

When I first started dog walking I used to visit public parks two or three times a day with my pack.  Over time, there were a couple of different issues that I found were becoming a problem.  First of all, most dog walkers are out at the same time so there could be up to 60 dogs in one not-so-big dog park at once.  Second, not all of those dogs were well behaved or being properly supervised by their walker.  I found myself spending more time dealing with the socialization of other packs with mine than I was focusing on my own pack.

All that changed when two other long time trusted Toronto dog walking companies approached me with the idea of finding a huge space that we could make our own.  Now we share a ONE ACRE wooded area that has hills, trails and trees.  It is fully fenced in for safety and also has a truck-sized double gate system so there is no dragging 6+ dogs across the street from the truck to the park area. We drive right in.

We have started having our park wood chipped on a regular basis to create a nice progressively deeper cushion between us and the mud.  We’ve also got a nice big water station for those super hot days of summer.  There is a little jungle gym that the little dogs like to crawl all over and TONS of room for the big guys to really stretch their legs and get all of that energy out!

I know every dog that comes into the park because I know every walker that comes in the park.  We trust each other and know that we would never bring an unsafe, unvaccinated dog into the park.  We are also very vigilant about picking up ALL THE POOP that we see 100% of the time.  There is NO garbage in our park and we have lined our fences with burlap to make sure none blows in from the street.

We’ve got tree shade from the rain and the boiling sun and wind protection from our fences which seems to make the climate in the park perfect all year round.  You really don’t feel like you’re still in the city when you come into our park.  I know for the dogs it feels like a day out in the country.  They know when we are getting near when I can see all their heads start poking up, ears alert, tails start wagging and tongues start flapping about… IT’S PARTY TIME!!!
