30 Minutes of Dog-Powered Scootering – $20
We are very excited to introduce dog-powered scootering to our menu of services! Many dogs need much more exercise than we can give them with just a walk or jog around the neighborhood. What they need is to RUN! Dogs are built to reach greater speeds than the average human could ever hope to maintain, but with the dog-powered scooter our dogs are able to set the pace and run to their heart’s content. Dog Scootering or “urban dog mushing” is an outstanding way to get your dog the exercise he needs, especially for the working breeds and dogs who love to run and pull. This is a high-impact sport and perfect for dogs with a ton of excess energy!
With your dog’s safety in mind, we spared no expense in getting the safest system available. Our dog-powered scooters lock the dogs into place by our side so that they remain under control at all times while still getting all of the benefits of this great sport.
American Pit Bulls, Huskies, Samoyeds, Malamutes, Sled Hounds and Pointers are the most popular breeds for scootering. However, any medium to large breed that can be taught to pull and run can enjoy this sport.
Scootering is for dogs in their prime, not for dogs under 14 months of age, senior dogs or dogs with decreased mobility due to illness or disability.
In order to create a safe and fun experience for your pet, we take the time to train your dog to use the scooter. For some dogs this may take one session, for others it may take several.
Due to the nature of Midwest weather, Dog-Powered Scootering is weather permitting. For your pet’s safety, this adventure will not be offered when the temperature is above 80 degrees, during rain or lightning storms, or when there is snow or ice on the ground. In the event of a weather cancellation, your dog will receive a 30 minute walk instead.
