Why you should hire an NSPDA member to walk your dog!

By hiring an NSPDA member company you can be sure that your dog's walker:
  • Is licenced by either the District of North Vancouver or the District of West Vancouver.
  • Is fully insured, as is their vehicle.
  • Is well trained and takes advantage of additional training opportunities like Canine First Aid and the Emergency Planning for Dogwalkers workshops.
  • Has access to industry resources like our emergency WhatsApp channel for finding lost dogs, and our member email list that is used for sharing professional advice.
  • Can call on other industry members for specialized support or help in a crisis.
  • Is up to date on legislative changes, trail conditions, and hazards.
Our community of dogwalkers makes us stronger, and helps to raise the standards of our industry.
