OUR

SERVICES

RELIABLE KINDNESS 
Every dog, home, and family is different but we provide the same quality of care whether regularly, as-needed or for an emergency.  We are there when needed middays, mornings, evenings, weekends, and holidays. 

I primarily work from home and have three rescues. Although they love to walk, we want them to be let out in the backyard on the days when I go into the office, which is usually a few times a month.

customized care

as-needed service

My dog is elderly and does not like other dogs. He needs daily solo walks. Sometimes I am stuck at work and would need an evening walker that can give him his medication.

regular midday walks

as-needed evening service

My schedule requires that I travel. Sometimes I can bring my dog. She needs daily walks and overnight in-home dog sitting because she doesn't like boarding facilities.
