What time works best for you?
Golden Hounds offers 3 time slots for our Toronto dog walking services.
The Brunch Bunch
One Hour Pack Walk
Each dog is picked up from their home and is driven to a local Toronto neighbourhood, park or path to socialize and explore! Dog walks are a mixture of brisk exercise, and time to stop and sniff the roses. The walk begins once we arrive at our destination. A timer is set, and off we go!
Does your dog have A LOT of energy? Or is home alone for a long period of time?
Consider a double walk day! Your dog will come home happy & tired after having two pack walks. Remember, a tired dog is a happy dog!
New Dog Onboarding Process
Let’s Talk Before We Walk!
During our discovery call, we’ll discuss if Golden Hounds’ dog walking services are right for you and your dog. We’ll get to know more about your furry family member, and review their temperament, energy level, special needs, and answer any questions you may have.
Meet and Greet
Before we have your pup join us on their first pack walk, it’s important that we get to meet your dog in person. During this meet and greet, I will get to know more about your dog’s routine, personality, and background.
It’s walk day! After our meet and greet, we’ll schedule a day for your dog’s first pack walk. A pup’s introduction to Golden Hounds is always a trial walk. It’s vital that your dog is placed in the perfect group with similar temperaments and compatible personalities.
Hey! I’m Mary!
I’m the owner and pack leader of Golden Hounds.
My love of dogs began at a very young age, starting with the constant presence of a dog in my family home, to eventually having a dog of my own, Stella.
Shortly after Stella and I moved to Midtown Toronto, my family’s Golden Retriever, Brody, joined us to live in the big city! I quickly realized that I had to teach Brody, Stella and I how to properly walk together on leash in harmony. While a challenge at first, this eventually sparked my love for the pack walk experience. I quickly realized that my fast paced corporate job wasn’t my passion, and that I needed to do what I really love… spend my days in the fresh air dog walking!
After gaining years of experience as a Toronto dog walker, I decided to start offering my own dog walking services. Everyday working as a Toronto dog walker is an adventure, filled with excitement, and unconditional love. I consider myself very lucky to be a part of Toronto’s dog walking community, and to be able to do what I love everyday.
So how did Golden Hounds Get its name?
It’s all because of Brody, my Golden who touched every heart he laid eyes on, and Stella, my loveable Hound dog; learning to walk together as a pack. As one.
