Why 30-minute walks?
The average dog needs about an hour a day of total exercise to maintain good health, and exercise is not limited to just walking. A dog can get exercise zooming around the yard, up and down the stairs, chasing a favorite toy, and even training. Mental stimulation counts too, and owners usually provide at least 30 minutes per day of healthy activity. My 30-minutes is supplemental.
Can you do shorter walks or pop-ins?
I can with notice, but shorter walks or visits will still be $20, so it’s cost-effective to schedule a 30-minute appointment.
Do you do walks on-demand?
If they are within a few miles of my current location, and there is an opening in the schedule. Please call to check for availability.
Can we schedule online?
I cover a huge area, so please contact me to schedule an appointment.
Are gratuities included in the price?
No, but they are sincerely appreciated. I purposely price services low to make them more accessible, but I can’t avoid the costs of doing business.
Do you offer videos, photos, & bathroom alerts during walks?
A distracted walker has a higher potential for accidents and your pet gets a lower quality walk. My job is to protect you and your pet, so safety first. (I do like to sneak a few snaps at opportune times.)
If you need a post-walk report, I can text you after we’ve arrived back at your home and the dogs are secure (it’s a good way to give dogs a cool-down and reduce any separation anxiety from my leaving).
Do you do boarding or overnight pet-sitting?
As much as I’d love to, I cannot.
Will you transport a rescue to another state?
Gladly. I LOVE road trips. Please give a minimum of 7 days notice for out-of-state trips to make other arrangements for previously scheduled walks.
Do you train dogs?
I can work with dogs on basic skills, but I am not a certified dog trainer.
Can I cancel my walk?
Of course. However, if you cancel less than 24-hours in advance, there may be a cancellation fee.
