Safety is my number one focus

posted on: August 3, 2014

As owner of Waggin Tails Pet Care, I am extremely proud of my safety record working with dogs.  With 20+ years of experience and education using positive methods with dogs, safety of your pup is always my number one priority!   In the 13 years I’ve been providing off-leash outings to Seattle dog owners, I have never had a dog injured while on one of my off-leash adventures.  That is because I put tremendous thought into each dog’s needs while in my care.  Each dog that is a potential new client is closely evaluated to make sure he/she is social with other dogs and humans.  Waggin Tails does not accept dogs into the off-leash group who has any aggression issues which ensures the safety of your pup on her outing.

I also take great care to make sure that the van ride is as comfortable and calm as possible for each dog.  Some dogs might be kenneled because they feel more secure and do less alert barking during the ride.  Others are just fine hanging in the back with their pals.  The ride in my van is not a free-for-all chaotic journey like so many dog walking companies!  It is typically very quiet right up until we arrive at the park.  While occasional barking does occur, especially when a dog new to the group gets into the van, this kind of barking called “alert barking” is worked with in a positive manner and the van is calm relatively quickly.

Call Jacki Phoenix of Waggin Tails for your dog’s weekly exercise and socialization needs and your pup will be in the absolute best hands possible, next to yours.   Remember, the first walk/outing is always on me!
