Daily Dog Walks
We love walking your dogs. Outings are important to your dog. Whenever possible, we will send you an awesome shot of your dog romping on a mountain trail or swimming in a stream. Depending on your dog’s personality, we offer individual or group walks— off or on leash—trail walks or strolls around the street. During our introductory interview, we assess your dog’s needs and discuss on/off leash activities with you in detail.

Why change your dog’s routine just because you have to leave town? Many animals are upset by kennel stays. We can help your dog feel safe and secure at home—even if you are not there.
We talk with you about your pet’s personality and needs. When we take care of your pet, we make sure we note the most amount of time he/she can be left alone.
What does daily dog sitting include?
First and foremost, we offer plenty of doggie love. Our service includes two 20-30min visits, short walks, food, and water. You can also get additional visits with the price of a daily walk. We will do our best to make sure your pet gets whatever needed when you are gone. We try to stick with the day to day routine of your pets.
We are happy to water your plants, take out trash, and check phone messages. Just let us know what will make leaving home as easy as possible—for you and your dog.
