The FAQs

Some commonly asked questions about our services!

puppy stuff
How do I pay?
Payment needs to be in advance by cash, cheque or e-transfer from your bank to our bank.
Do I need to drop off/pick up my dog?
As long as you live in the "greater"  Olympic Village area (as defined under "service area") and you will allow us access to your home, we will pick up and drop off for no extra charge.
Are OVDW services available on weekends, evenings, and public holidays?
Yes, but with some conditions as follows;
a) only occassionally, meaning not on a regular basis.
b) we need reasonable advance notice.
c) subject to availability.
d) A 50% surcharge on regular rates applies.
What protections do you provide my dog?
We have completed a Pet First Aid course, are bonded against fraud and insured as dog walkers through Sovereign Insurance Co. Since we do not walk more than three dogs at any one time we are not required to be licensed by the City of Vancouver.
Do I need to supply anything?
Yes, a regular leash for walking control (not the extendable type please) and any treats you may desire. You may also wish to provide a coat or raincoat in the event of cold weather or rain, a dry towel for us to rub down your pet when we return home. Poop bags are on us!
What about my dogs particular preferences?
At the time of applying for our services we complete an extensive questionnaire of the "do's and don'ts of your dog. We then attempt to accommodate these preferences as best we can, limousines excluded!
Do you service outside of the Olympic Village area?
Generally speaking we do not, however, if your home is within reasonable travelling distance from our normal service area, there will be an additional small travelling charge.
Do you offer pet sitting services?
Yes, we do. It is usually a combo of our basic services and always assumes your pet will remain in your home under our supervision while you are away. Costs will vary depending on your specific needs. Please call for a free consultation.
What if I have two dogs - what are the costs then?
If the cost for the first dog is, say, $30 for the service, then the second dog ( from the same household ) will only pay an additional $12 (40%) for the same service at the same time. e.g. $30 for the first dog + only $12 for the second dog = total $32 for two dogs.

About Us

Dogs, community and connecting.

Bill and Vonnie Bennetto are one of your many neighbours who own a dog (ours is Arne) , and we have met many of you and your dogs, even though we may not know each others names. At least not yet. Is it not amazing how, in owning a dog, we connect with so many more people who we may not otherwise have any interaction? Same with dogs, except they seem better at it than us, in that they are constantly aware of each other, both positively and negatively, but always honestly! Therefore, we have a modest mission in our small business; it is to promote connection between dogs and dogs, humans and dogs, and humans with humans, in our greater Olympic Village area.



Bill Bennetto

Owner


Retired small business owner, experiencing slight boredom with retirement, finds a new social interest of fellow dog-owners in the Olympic Village area. Says Bill "In my 35 years in Vancouver, I have not met a more dedicated group of neighbours as my dog-owning friends in the Olympic Village. There is a real sense of community here. It makes sense to provide a dog-walking service to them.

Vonnie Bennetto

Owner


Friendly, and fun loving, we settled in the Olympic Village area a short year ago and feel like I've lived here for years. I enjoy the wonderful sense of community here in the village and must say I'm particularly partial to dog owners and of course their precious four legged friends, namely "dogs". Being able to get to know the other dogs of the Olympic Village is a rewarding privilege.

Arne

Boss, OVDW Mascot


I'm a six year old Jack Russell cross, with long legs. I'm very handsome, as all you female dogs in the village are aware. I was rescued from Oakland, California, and found my "furever" home in the Olympic Village, with my mom, Vonnie and my dad, Bill. Even though I find Vancouver very wet and cold, I love all my new neighbourhood friends, both big and small. I'm pretty easy going, and love a good play with my human and dog friends!
