Consultation: FREE

During the initial consultation, we will review you and your animal’s needs and discuss current routines. We will also go over any additional or specialized pet care that is required to ensure that your pet is happy and healthy while in our care. We will answer any questions that you have, review medical needs and of course get to know your animals! This visit will be about 20-40 minutes

Virtual Consultation

This option might be more comfortable, or just easier, for some and we are happy to accommodate. During this two-way video we will learn a lot about each other and cover all the same information as an in person meeting. At the end of the call, if you are ready, we will schedule a time for a quick no contact key exchange and moment for us to meet your pup, at a distance from you.
Not every scenario is listed below, please check in with me about pricing packages to suit your specific needs.

We look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Dog Walking

Whether you need us 5 days or week or just occasionally this visit is a winner for your dogs. We will spend our visit doing what your dog loves to do for the length of time best for your dog; 30, 45, or 60 minutes. We can spend our time walking around the neighborhood, playing in the yard, or a quick potty break and snuggles on the couch. Whatever you think is best for your dogs is what we will do. Of course we will also freshen the water, and feed and medicate as needed.

Pack Hikes

Sometimes you just need to hang out with friends in the woods! We love to provide this extra special time for dog friendly dogs who love to be outside. Safety is our highest priority which is why we always have 1 human for every 2-3 dogs, this ensures every dog gets individual attention and is handled in a safe and respectful way. We also know how dangerous ticks can be, so at the start of the hike all dogs (with permission) are sprayed with Wondercide, a natural tick repellent. We stop as often as the weather, and dogs, tell us we need to for water and do tick checks while they drink. Every hike ends with a full body tick check and more water.
