Based in Victoria, BC, Canada, this company is dedicated to providing top-notch dog walking services that prioritize your pet's comfort and happiness. Their team understands that every dog has unique needs and they tailor their approach accordingly.

Their groups never exceed 4 and they offer a ton of private walks for nervous, anxious and reactive dogs.
What caused you to get into pet sitting/dog walking?
Low Key Dog Walks is named after my service dog Loki, who is my business partner and inspiration. After we were paired together in 2019, I needed something that provided flexibility, security and a sense of purpose. Our business grew very organically and quickly after we found our groove together.
What is the most fulfilling part of owning a pet sitting/dog walking business?
I enjoy the variety every day. I have created a sustainable way to make a living for myself, as well as employment opportunities for others. I'm doing this while building relationships and meeting a real need in the community. This is something I'm super proud of.
What is the most challenging?
Finding the balance between employee support/development and client care.
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
5 years is a long ways away! I hope to see a strong, thriving business with a solid foundation and excellent team members. We will have a well-developed community outreach program that offers various initiatives around the city.
What has Time To Pet changed the most about how you run your business?
It has been just over a year since we implemented Time To Pet. Everything is more efficient now that I can automate invoicing, scheduling and a lot of my bulk messages. I don't text clients or staff directly anymore. I can also schedule staff a lot easier with the calendar settings. Thanks TTP!
