WHY CHOOSE US?
Here's why our clients and neighbours keep giving us
5 PAWS UP
SAFETY IS #1 BEFORE FUN
We know your pup is precious cargo and you deserve peace of mind knowing they are navigating busy city streets safely. With Gussy & Co you can relax knowing the safety of our pack mates and pack leaders is our number one focus. Period. There are many ways we ensure pack safety; our comprehensive and extensive Pack Leader Training, Pet First Aid training, appropriate pack sizes, compatible dog personalities and adjusting the walk times during inclement weather. But our most helpful tool in ensuring safety is our custom made safety clips. By using a collar, harness and safety clip on each and every dog in our pack, we are ensuring they are completely secure and are able to prevent any collar slipping.
OUR TEAM IS RELIABLE
SMALL PACK SIZES
WE ARE POSITIVE
While our number one priority is safety, number two is fun! Our Pack Leaders keep the fun meter running high with plenty of belly rubs, elevator head scratches and of course treats! But in all seriousness (because we are often very silly) we follow a positive reinforcement style of dog walking. No punishment or force here! Just love, affection and praise.
OUR TEAM IS RELIABLE
We are a team and when you join our pack, you gain access to all of our amazing, expertly trained Pack Leaders! This means that when your Pack Leader is sick or on holidays, we simply have another wonderful member of our team step in to help! You will never be inconvenienced by us, and will never hear us tell you we aren’t able to fulfill our commitment to your walking needs.
SMALL PACK SIZES
Our packs are specially curated on a daily basis to ensure maximum compatibility. We know that not everyone gets along, and hey, thats ok! We take the time to ensure all dogs in the pack are comfortable with each other, making their pack walk relaxed and fun, just the way it should be! Our packs will never exceed 5 dogs and our most common pack sizes are 3 or 4 dogs.
BOOKING IS MADE EASY WITH OUR APP
Our clients have the pleasure of receiving a feedback email/app notification with every walk. Most clients say it’s their favourite part of the day, especially when it comes complete with a picture of their smiling pup! Our online booking system & smartphone app makes scheduling, canceling and invoicing accessible to clients 24 hours a day. Superior customer service is our priority and you can be sure that Kait, Kirsten and our team are here to communicate with you on a daily basis.
PACK WALK TRANSITIONING FOR PUPPIES & RESCUES
Making the transition from private puppy visits to pack walks can be a big adjustment for puppies. We start this process slowly, first introducing one dog to their puppy visits and building on that, gradually working our way up to a larger, longer pack walk. We know that expecting too much, too soon, from a puppy will only result in frustration and sometimes chaos! This slow transition is also used when we welcome a rescue dog into our pack. The big city can often be overwhelming for a new rescue, so ensuring they are comfortable and confident in a small pack is key to successfully transitioning into a larger pack.
"Gussy & Co has been such a great addition into my dog's (and my) life. They are not only a great and caring company, they also are accommodating and responsive. My dog is very little and they took such great care of her, whether that was wrapping her up in her winter coats, taking time to put her boots on and overall making sure she was comfortable in whatever weather condition they were walking her in. They always send updates and pictures on how the day went, which I found very helpful. Overall, I would highly recommend Gussy & Co for any type of dog, as they have great pack leaders and such a loving team. They really do care about your pup and that in itself should say everything!"
