We do not do packs walks! Max 3 dogs at a time.
We feel all of our love and attention should be focused on your dog(s) and not untangling leashes and correcting behavior problems with other dogs. If you have a local friend, neighbor, or relative who wishes to have their dog join us, we walk a maximum of 3 dogs at a time. Please add $10 for each dog to offset the increased cost of liability. There is no extra charge for 3 dogs from the same household. We also require a signed waiver and proof of vaccinations from any outside party joining us.
We will transport your dog(s) to the park or elsewhere we are walking, but we won’t waste your dog’s time and your money picking up other dogs. We start and finish at your home. Your dog will be socialized as we meet other dogs on our walk. We will take your altered dog to the dog park if you wish but you will have to sign an extra liability waiver.
Apart from vehicle injuries, most injuries and illness, dog flu, parvovirus, etc. can occur at dog parks. We have no control over the behavior of other dogs and humans in a dog park situation.
We do not walk in the heavy rain (light rain is OK) or excessive heat. We will reschedule for an early morning or evening walk on very hot days. Dogs are prone to heatstroke if exposed to extreme heat (as they do not sweat) and heatstroke is considered an emergency situation.
We are serious about your dog’s safety and enjoyment. Here is what we generally carry with us on a walk:
In the Vehicle
- Veterinary releases (contracts)
- Emergency contact numbers
- Vet information, vet office addresses, and directions
- Extended first aid kit
- Temporary tags
- Collapsible crate for emergency separation
On the Walk
- Back or fanny pack
- Walk summary chart with emergency numbers
- Water bowl or another delivery mechanism
- Poop bags
- Extra tags
- First-aid kit
- Cell phone
- Air horn (pet corrector)
- Citronella spray
- Pepper spray
- Balls or other toys as appropriate
Please remember the clock starts when we get there. If your dog is ready to go when we arrive, they will have more time walking.
25 – 45 Minutes*
45 – 75 Minutes*
40 – 60 Minutes*
*All times listed are approximate. We operate on “Doggy-Time”, which could mean up to 15-min plus or minus advertised time.
Keys & Access
In the case of pet sitting and dog walking if you are not at home, and overnight stays, we will need access to your home. Don’t worry, everyone is bonded. We require a copy of your key, or garage entry code at the conclusion of the meet and greet. Your keys will never have your address on them. They will be labeled using your pet’s name(s). We will also need your alarm code and password for the alarm company or police. This will be kept in a safe place and only given to the walker/sitter when needed.
