Did you know that an appropriate level of physical exercise is a biological need for our dogs?

Meeting physical exercise needs can help your dog be calmer, more responsive to training, and less inclined to partake in unwanted behaviors like digging or chewing up your things!

Are you struggling to properly exercise your dog physically and mentally because of work and/or family life obligations?

We believe enrichment opportunities and maintaining adequate levels of physical exercise are essential needs for our furry family members to live healthy, balanced lifestyles. Your dog will not only receive top-kotch exercise at whatever their desired pace is, but plenty of opportunities to explore, sniff, and decompress!

Our dog walking services are your solution!

Dog Walking faq

We don't take puppies under 16 weeks (4 months) old for this service to prevent over-exercising their tiny joints and ensure they are fully vaccinated.

However, we highly recommend early intervention for socialization. If you have a young dog who needs training & socialization, check out our Puppy Primer Program here.

See the AVSAB's pull position statement on puppy socialization.

What if my puppy or newly adopted dog isn't fully vaccinated yet?

Per our insurance, dogs must have an up-to-date rabies vaccines to qualify for this service.

However, we highly recommend having a fully vaccinated dog because we will likely frequent areas with a high volume of other dogs (parks, neighborhood trails, etc.)

Does my adolescent/adult dog need to be fully vaccinated for this service?

We do not offer payment plans or split payments for dog walking.

You are allowed to cancel your subscription at any time and can reach out to your dog walker to restart at any point.

Are payment plans or split payments available for this service?

The short answer is no.
We're not opposed to using the harness you already have!

We're just picky about harnesses around here. Ill-fitting equipment can increase risk for short term and long term injuries. 

Because of this, we recommend appropriate harnesses for each client to make sure we're accommodating each dog's body structure and healthy musculoskeletal movement.

My dog already has a harness. Do I have to get one of the recommended brands?

This will depend on the amount of dogs in your home, their sizes, energy levels, behavioral issues, and your dog walker's comfortability with the combination of all of the above! 

This can be discussed at your Meet-n-Greet.

Can you walk more than one dog at a time?

7-Month-Old Female Double Doodle Puppy,

Our walks will take place in the places your dog frequents, including your neighborhood, local parks, etc.!

 

If you have a particular walking route or trail you take, we're happy to keep that routine upon your request.

Where will you walk my dog?
