Dog Walking Details

Regular Service: Each visit lasts approximately 30 minutes. The dog walk will be based on your dog's age, physical condition, size, and energy level. We can walk your dog for the entire visit, or we can devote some time to walking and include playtime, brushing, or feeding. We can split the service so that multiple dogs each get a shorter walk, or walk your dogs together for the entire visit. Regular service can be scheduled whenever you need it. Each visit is $20.

Express Visit: The Express service is for owners who want to give their dog a brief 20-minute walk or potty break on a regular basis. Perfect for house-training puppies, if you are working 10 hours/day you can schedule two visits per day to make sure the puppy doesn't have an accident. Rule of thumb: your puppy usually can hold its bladder for its age in months, plus one. If the puppy is 4 months, it needs to go potty at least every 5 hours. Each visit will be tailored to your dog's individual needs. To receive this discount, visits must be scheduled at least 2 times per week. 

Dog-Walking Discount: If you'd like your dog walked on a regular schedule, we offer a discount for three or more visits per week. Each visit lasts approximately 30 minutes and will be tailored to your dog(s) needs. Each visit is $17.

Walk and Train : For dogs who already know the basic obedience commands, we will provide daytime walks practicing good manners and reinforcing basic obedience commands.  Your dog benefits from both physical, as well as mental exercise to help tire him out while you are at work. At the end of each visit, we send you an email describing the lessons we worked on.  Contact us for prices.


Payment is due prior to service.  Our secure customer portal allows you to use MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and electronic checks to pay online.  If you prefer, we are happy to accept cash or a check.
