Dog Walking Details

Standard Visit: 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. Standard visits can be scheduled whenever you need it. Each visit is $21.


Drop-In Visit: The Drop-in service is for owners who want to give their dog a brief walk or potty break.  Each drop-in visit lasts up to 20 minutes. 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. Price is $16 for weekday drop-ins, and $18 on the weekends or holidays.

Prescheduled Discount: If you'd like your dog walked multiple times per week, even on a rotating schedule, we offer a discount. Visits need to be scheduled by the Sunday before each week. Each visit is $18.


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.
