Valerie Leithoff:

CCTBS, Certified Canine Training and Behavior Specialist

Hound Hikes allows me to combine my passion of outdoor adventure and canine behaviour! I graduated with a B.Sc in Geography and Environmental Science from the University of Victoria and went on to study at the Animal Behavioural Institute to complete my Canine Training & Behaviour specialized certificate. 



My mission:

To ensure that I bring honesty, dedication, and the spirit of joyfulness in everything that I do.

My methods:

I pick up your dogs in a safe, comfortable and secure ride and sweep them away to a local trail for some fun-filled long distance hiking.

I take a maximum of 8 dogs per hike. 


PICK UP APPROX. 10 AM- 11 am

· I can pick up from your home or office

· You don’t need to be home for pickup/ drop off

· You can provide me with a house key, a garage door code, hide a key or have a neighbor let me in

· I am licensed, insured, bonded, and background checked for your ease of mind

· A notification via text will be sent to inform you when your dog has been picked up and let you know where we are going hiking


· Hikes will be anywhere from 4-7 km, depending on terrain and trail conditions

DROP OFF APPROX. 1 pm- 2 pm 

· Dogs will be toweled off and cleaned up before returning

· You will be notified via text that your dog is home (happy and tuckered!) and sent the GPS track of the hike


Hikes are tracked using GPS, and a screenshot of the route with the total km's and walking time is sent via text after the hike.
