Q: With other options out there, why should I choose Wiggles & Tails?
A: There are some excellent options out there. In fact, I often recommend
those options if they are outside my area, or if we are not a good fit.
- Convenience - You don't have to drop off your dog at daycare.
- Affordability - Individual hikes are comparable to daycare, however blocks of
sessions or a committed schedule with Wiggles & Tails are less expensive.
- Dependability - Except in case of Extreme cold/wind chill, Weather State's of
Emergency Declared by State, or scheduled days off during the year, your dog will
get a great hike or visit regardless of rain, sleet, snow, or heat. Wiggles & Tails will
take care of your daytime dog needs so you don't have to. During blizzards for
example, if you are working, group hikes may be postponed, but I will still do
Home Visits to your dog.
- Commitment - We are committed to the happiness of your dog and the success of
our business. Your dog's happiness is guaranteed. If you are ever displeased with
our services, cancel anytime and I will refund the money from your most recent
- Safety and Fitness - We regard the safety and health of your dog as the top priority
on hikes. We will never off-leash your dog within 100 yards of dangerous areas
such as roads, and will make sure your dog is on strong voice-command before
we let him/her off-leash.
Q: Will my dog get injured?
A: We take every precaution to ensure your dog's safety.
The truth is that your dog will probably get scratched or nipped from time to time. If
you've played with your dog recently, you have probably gotten scratched. There is
always a potential for injury, but serious injury is unlikey. Dogs have claws and teeth
which they use to play and in cases of defense or attack. We do not accept aggressive
dogs, however we will offer one-on-one walks with aggressive dogs at a much higher rate
to be discussed. In cases of extreme aggression, we will absolutely refuse services. Group
hikes will be exclusively non-aggressive, playful dogs on-leash and when a comfort and
understanding is reached with your dog, off-leash. Our hikes on-leash involve extensive
adventure walks and runs. Off-leash your dog will play with other dogs and have a lot of
fun. If minor scratches or a torn claw occurs, we will notify you and act accordingly.
We generally use VCA or IVG hospitals if serious injury or sickess should
We Never Use Shock Collars. We are adamately against these types of collars or any
type of painful obedience/training techniques. Positive reinforcement/encouragement for
obedience is the only method we accept.
