Project Description

Much More Than Just Dog Walking in Christchurch

A Christchurch group dog walker will come and take your best friend to a different location every weekday for fun, play, training and adventure!

Safe, Professional Dog Care for Your Best Friend

Your dog’s safety is paramount to VIPets, so groups are kept small (no more than 6 friendly dogs).  Dogs are grouped with other dogs of very similar size, personality and temperament so the company benefits them all. Dogs become very good friends, searching the car for each other as they hop in!

  • Team members are friendly, caring and slightly dog obsessed! They undergo advanced background checks with a reputable company before being hired. They are then pet first aid trained and required to sit a test to ensure they know our 14 page policies and procedures manual by heart. You can expect the same level of service from each VIPets team member you entrust with your dog’s care. All team members are over 18 and start on at least the living wage.

  • Team members are trained to infuse each walk with play and use toys to provide opportunities for fun and mental stimulation. They use any given opportunity for new training and to reinforce existing commands you have in place.

  • Dogs are transported to a new and exciting location each weekday in a large, comfortable family car filled with blankets and a camp mattress. They are leashed safely in place before departure from home.

  • Every walk is tracked with GPS software so you can see exactly when we arrive, how far your dog went and what time the walk ends. Video is shared daily on Facebook.

How Do the Group Walks Work?

VIPets will pick up your dog from your home and take them out for the time of their lives, plain and simple. That way, you can get home and spend quality time with your dog knowing their physical and mental requirements are met for the day.

Outings are off-leash and include bush walks, forest adventures, beach and river swims, red zone excursions and more. Adventures are designed to achieve maximum joy and complete fulfillment.

Just as your dog will enjoy the benefits of feeling better and living longer, you will enjoy the bonus of a better behaved dog. Let VIPets help you tick one more item off your doggy to-do list every day.

Our Pet Parents Say…

“Lesley has been walking our puppy Dusty for a few weeks now. He absolutely adores her – almost has a heart attack when she comes through the door! I love the email updates that we get after every walk with photos and a wee story of what went on that day. It’s great peace of mind that our dog is being walked and well looked after by someone who truly loves dogs.”

Lynn and Graeme B

“We’re so pleased with Lesley and VIPets, she’s been a real life saver! Our dog loves his walks (don’t they all) and having Lesley take him out when we can’t or even just spending time with him provides great peace of mind. Professional and friendly service, would highly recommend.”

Kate & Rhett P

“Lesley has been helping me out with daily dog walks during a particularly busy time and I just want to rave about how amazing her service is! For my dog Sam it was love at first and when Lesley arrives to take her for a walk she goes nuts. Each time they complete a walk I receive a “dog log” via email with notes and photos of their adventure. I love coming home to a happy, relaxed dog who has had a great day thanks to her Mary Poppins dog nanny.”
