Being outdoors keeps dogs physically, mentally, and emotionally fit
Dogs need to spend time outdoors for their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Dogs that spend too much time indoors will often have stomach issues because they haven’t developed the proper balance of internal microbes that a healthy intestinal structure requires. Spending too much time indoors can also affect dogs mentally and emotionally which will often lead to behavioural problems. Playing outside keeps dogs healthy and happy. They can sniff, chew, run, jump, chase, splash and swim.
I’m Lesley and I have over thirty years of experience caring for dogs. I am licensed, insured and certified in Dog Safe First Aid. I love taking dogs into nature where they can exercise while living their best lives. I have a 6 year-old Golden Retriever named, Leo, who I adopted when he was 8 months old. Leo grew up swimming in the Coquitlam River and is the inspiration behind the business name.
I take small packs on nature hikes around the Tri-Cities. Hikes are at least one hour of off-leash time and pets are in my care for up to three hours. I provide pick-up and drop-off service and muddy paws are cleaned up before tired dogs are returned home.
