Services + Rates

Puppy visits (20 minutes)

This if for the new dog owner, we suggest that you start here with in the aiding of potty training your puppy. Until your puppy has had his second and third shots, it’s advisable to restrict the interaction with other dogs in first six to eight weeks. As we know the bladder of a puppy is not the same as that of a six month old. This gives your puppy a chance to stretch his legs and relieve themselves outside. Again with positive reinforcement your pup will be on their way to having an accident free home.

Rate $15/walk

Planning a vacation can be a great thing, if you have a dog and wondering if the neighbor or family member can look after them can be stressful!

We take that stress away, we provide a safe, crate free home away from home where they can roam and play with others in my home and are also included in the adventures at the private off leash park with my pack.

Rate $50/day

Hotel Visits

Many hotels today allow you to bring your dog and stay at your hotel, but most have policies that do not allow your pet to be unattended while you go to dinner or that show you have been wanting to see.

We have taken care of that, we will pick up your dog and walk them and while you enjoy what the city has to offer.
