Group Dog Walks - A Chance for Your Dog to Make New Friends!

By nature, dogs are pack animals, and most enjoy bonding and playing with other friendly dogs. Our small, closely supervised group walks & off leash hikes are designed to offer your dog the perfect opportunity to socialize, play and expend excess energy with a number of other fun-loving canine friends.

Group walks are limited to 6 dogs or less. We match dogs based on their temperament and energy level, and our trained staff ensures safety is always our number one priority.

We offer two group walk options:

OPTION 1:
1 hour walk $29 (available until 3pm)
$11 for each additional dog in the same household

Our 1 hour group walk is ideal for dogs who would like to enjoy an energetic off leash hike with like-minded friends on local wooded trails and parks. This option is great for dogs that play well with others and have a reliable recall; however well-behaved dogs that walk nicely on leash are welcome to join as well.

OPTION 2:
30 minute walk $23
$9 for each additional dog in the same household

Our 30-minute group walk allows your dog to enjoy an energetic leashed walk with their canine friends, while checking out the sights and sounds around their neighborhood or at a local park.

Solo Dog Walks - For Dogs that Appreciate Being the Center of Attention

15 minutes $18
$5 for each additional dog in the same household

While we appreciate the benefits of group walks, we also understand it is not the best option for all dogs, so we offer an individual/solo walk where your dog receives one-on-one attention from a trained Doggie Au Pair walker. This is perfect for puppies, seniors, dogs with restrictions due to injury or illness, or for dogs that simply don’t socialize well with others. Solo walks take place in your neighborhood and allow your dog the opportunity to get some exercise, enjoy some company and of course, take care of the all-important bathroom business.

Double “Duty”: Puppy Package $32

Our customized puppy package consists of (2) 15-minute visits per day, offering the structure that is critical for house training, walk etiquette and puppy enrichment. Visits include water replenishment and feeding where required.

This service is reserved for puppies 6 months and younger and is available Monday – Friday only.

We are also happy to offer recommendations for trusted local dog trainers, if interested.

Cat Sitting... AKA Kitty Au Pair

$20 per visit

Cats typically prefer the familiar sights and sounds of their own home when their owners have to travel. Sure, they may get lonely and even a little indignant that their ‘servants’ have dared to take a business trip or much needed vacation, but that’s where we can help to minimize their disapproving, lingering kitty stares.

You can go out of town with the peace of mind knowing your cat will be well taken care of with our personalized in-homecare.We will feed, replenish water, offer playtime, clean litter boxes and of course provide that all important TLC to ensure your feline family member doesn’t give you the cold shoulder upon your return.

Sitting services also extend to your other small pets, including, but not limited to; guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, turtles, birds & fish.

Service fee includes mail and newspaper pick up, plant care, putting out trash barrels and adjusting lights at no extra charge.

Pet Taxi

$30 for first 30 minutes, $15 for each full or partial 30 minute block thereafter

You are busy but your pet has a vet or grooming appointment? Do they need to be dropped off or picked up at daycare or a boarding facility? We can help by providing safe and reliable transportation service to wherever they need to go.

Pet taxi service is limited to those towns in and around our regular service areas.
