Still time for a Christmas Gift — The EZ Dog Walker’s Vest offers new, practical solution to make dog walking more enjoyable and hassle-free!

Hello Fellow Dog Owners, Dog Sitters, Dog Walkers and Trainers,

LauraFrontRedEZDWV

Here’s a new practical solution to make dog walking more enjoyable and hassle-free for everyone who loves and cares for dogs.

After custom designing the vest with fabulous input from dog-care professionals, you can now take advantage of a carefully crafted, unique dog walking garment that will help make dog walking easier and more convenient — the brand new EZ Dog Walker’s Vest.

All Vest sizes are currently ON SALE for only $35.00 (regular price $45.00).


Before creating the Vest, it was difficult to hold everything — like dog waste bags, treats, water bottles, hand wipes, I.D., cell phone, business cards, etc.

So our team designed the vest with enough pockets and a variety of pocket sizes to ensure you have room to comfortably carry everything for dog walks. The super functional Vests are also perfect for walkers, hikers and bicycle riders.  And they make a great staple for animal shelters to hand out to dog-walking volunteers.


“I have been using this vest daily since I received it.  It lives up to how it was described.  This vest has plenty of pockets for K-9 & people gear – is lightweight & comfortable. The seller acknowledged my order by email immediately. It arrived on time & was packaged well. Was previously using a fly fishing vest but it cut into the back of my neck due to weight of our gear. EZ vest far out-performs! Designed for the dog walker’s comfort. Thank you for this 5-star product and excellent service.”

– Mary F. – Vancouver, WA


The vest is sporty, durable and features several reflective strips on the front and back.  The vest comes in sharp black or vibrant red (with our logo on the back of the neckline).

What’s really effective is how you can use your new vest as a walking advertisement.  It’s a great way to strike up a conversation with neighbors or clients, pass along your business cards, and generate new business opportunities.

You have room to print your company logo on the back of the vest (or front) if you choose to personalize and promote your business.

It’s so easy to place your order now.  Simply go to the Order Today tab.


“I got the vest today. I love it! It is exactly what I wanted.  I was contemplating designing my own and sewing a vest for myself, but I decided to look at some images online for ideas in my design. I was so happy that I quickly found exactly what I had in mind, all ready to go, for a very affordable price. I received it in just a couple of days. I’m sure I couldn’t have made this vest on my own for what I paid for it and it would have probably taken me a month to do it.  Thanks again.”

Dog Walker’s Tool Vest
We’ve got to try out this new product on a recent Dog Walking Academy field trip. Nice. Whether you’re a dog walker, trainer, work a daycare floor, or just walk your own dogs, give this vest a look. It’s got room for everything. Seriously, everything. There are enough zipper and Velcro pockets and hooks and carabiners and loops to bring anything you might need—water bottles and bowls, treats, leashes, clickers, poop bags, safety stuff, cell phone, etc.—and probably the proverbial kitchen sink, too. Comes in small to extra large, black or red (we hear other colors are coming) with reflective safety strips, and they’re going to be adding the option of having your logo printed on the back. The product is brand new and won’t ship until Spring, but you can pre-order now.

3 Tips on How to Keep Your Pet in a Comfortable Environment.

As a pet owner, you must be conscious of your pet’s health because you are your beloved pet’s primary caregiver.  Since your pets provide so much for you, it is only normal that you would want to provide them with the most comfortable environment possible.

Here are some ways to ensure that your cat, dog or other type of pet is in the best environment possible.

1.  Pet Boarding.  Pet boarding services are suitable for pets whose owners are unavailable to take care of them for a certain length of time.  In general, the duration of the pet boarding can vary from one night to a few month’s time.  This service can be offered to a variety of pets, ranging anywhere from horses to hamsters.  Pet boarding services usually include feeding, playing with the pets, training and other activities.  With today’s technology, some boarding/day care centers have even installed web cameras so that you can watch your pet live on your computer while you are away to ensure that they are in the best hands.  Pet boarding is a great option to consider.

2.  Pet Daycare.  Pet daycare is something quite different from pet boarding.  Unlike with pet boarding, pet daycare services usually deal with taking care of the pets while the owners are at work or out for the day.  At the end of the workday, the pet owners will pick their pets up from the pet daycare provider.  Pet daycare services are often offered to dogs but can involve other animals as well.  At pet daycare, the pets usually have everything they need from food bowls to toys and more.  It is a great way for the dog or other animal to receive care and get to interact with other pets during the day.

3.  Pet Spas.  The current trend in pet care is pet spas.  The main focus of pet spas is small animals like dogs, cats, ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits.  At pet spas, the pets are often trained, exercised, pampered and groomed.  There are oftentimes do-it-yourself pet spas where the owners have to train and groom their own pets in order to improve the bond between them but the spa will provide the necessary space and grooming equipment such as the wash basin, shampoo and nail clippers.  Whichever type of pet spa you choose, your pet is sure to love the pampering aspect to it. 

If you are looking for pet care services, keep these previously mentioned services in mind and provide your pet with the best care possible.

How to Select Dog Walking Companies.

If it were at all possible, most individuals would want to spend as much time at home with their beloved dogs as they could. However, in today’s society, most people have one job and even perhaps two jobs to go to on a daily basis. This means that loving Fido is often home alone with nobody to keep him/her company. This is where dog walking companies can help. Dog walking companies offer the solution dog owners have been seeking out all along.

There are many dog walking companies to choose from which begs the question of how to choose the right one. The following will offer certain criteria to keep in mind when selecting a dog walking company for your family canine.

Following this checklist will help you to choose the best dog walking company for your family pet.

The Companies Must Be Insured and Bonded

Before you even think about hiring a dog walking company, you must ascertain that the dog walking professional is insured and bonded. Insured and bonded dog walking companies equate with you being protected should anything happen with the dog walking sessions and your beloved pet. These aspects provide you with the utmost protection and peace of mind as well.

Dog Walkers Must Be Thorough

The dog walking professional must also be thorough. You want the dog walking company employee to have their act together and be quite familiar with your dog even as early as the end of the first meet and greet. You don’t want to leave your pet with someone who is not attentive nor thorough. Make sure that they are taking notes at the initial consult regarding things such as your dog’s likes, dislikes, medications, etc.

A Well-Trained Dog Walking Professional Is Essential

When choosing a dog walking company, make sure that your dog walker is well-trained. A well-trained dog walking professional will know what to do and what not to do when caring for dogs. You can often get a glimpse of their knowledge simply by watching how they interact with your dog along with any training certificates or qualifications they may let you know about.

The Dog Walking Company Must Offer a Good Variety of Services

The best dog walking company will also be one which offers a good variety of services. You may want your beloved pet to be groomed at the same time in which they are walked and it is helpful if the dog walking company offers these services as well. Many dog walking companies will provide other services in addition to dog walking services, which means that you can have a one-stop dog care provider on your side every step of the way.

Start Your Dog Walks Today With WalkForDogs.

A typical dog walk with WalkForDogs includes:

*A meet and greet of new friends along the walk – canine and human.
*An abundance of love and basic obedience, positively reinforced throughout the walk
*An end result — a tired and happy dog safely back home.

 
New Client Form.  Please complete the New Client forms prior to our first visit.  After reviewing your information, we’ll set up a first meeting at your home.  In most cases we can even start the dog walk immediately afterwards.  Please provide proof of rabies vaccination (tags), a non-extendible nylon leash, and a well-fitting collar.
