“Have you ever wondered where you’d end up if you took your dog for a walk and never once pulled back on the leash?”
Furball’s Choice is the leader in bringing new and innovative service to Pet Parents in Quinte. Providing you with more options when it comes time to leave your beloved furbabies with our trusted team of pet care professionals. Our Adventure Walks are one offered solely by Furball’s Choice, the first and only one of its kind between Toronto and Ottawa!
Group Adventure Walks are an open air & natural approach to the modern Dog Daycare. We combine the most natural form of fun and exercise for your pup with the most convenience for you!
Dogs crave love and attention, and physical exercise is crucial to a dog’s physical and mental well being. Our Group Adventure Walks are ideal for dogs who like activity, high socialization needs or would prefer to be outdoors most of the day.
How It Works:
One of our animal loving staff members will come to your home, pick up your dog, and take them along with a small playgroup, to different locations in the beautiful Bay Of Quinte. Daily travel sites will include; fields, trails, woodlands, parks, beaches and other patches of nature where dogs can safely explore. At Furball’s Choice we believe dogs are happiest when they live and play as naturally as they were intended to.
Our frequently traveled locations include (Not Limited To):
- Quinte Conservation
- Potters Creek
- Frink Center
- Vanderwater Conservation
- Sindey Conservation
- Sagers Conservation
- Massassauga Point
- Bleasdell Boulder
- Friends Of The Trail
- Lower Trent Trail
- Batawa Ski Hill
- Kings Mill
- Eastern Ontario Trails
- Menzel Nature Reserve
Your dogs will quickly learn that we like to reward good behaviors on the trail including polite greetings on the trail, impulse control in distracting situations and name recognition. You’ll notice these manners carry through at home with you as well.
Overwhelming numbers of dogs can cause anxiety so we keep the pack to a size similar in nature. After the outing we drop your dog off at your home happy and tired and ready for a nap, never wasting any of his day by crating or being cooped up in the house. Small groups also insure your dog has a safe and enjoyable experience .
Please Note: Group Adventure Walks are NOT off leash.
