Dog Walking

Old-fashioned walks with a modern twist.

img_sitting

We'll take your K9 for an individual stroll day or night. No herding here!

Our dog walks are given in 15, 20 or 30 minute increments as needed. They can be scheduled and GPS tracked online. We'll email you when we arrive. Then a walker knowledgeable in pet first aid and CPR will take your beloved K9 for a brisk jaunt around the neighborhood, enforcing basic skills like sit, down, heel and stay. A second email lets you know when your K9 has returned home and relates notes about your dog's day.

Our walks are typically delivered mid-day from 10am through 4pm, Monday through Friday. If your schedule requires walks outside those times, please give us a call and we'll be happy to accommodate your needs.


We walk the walk.

  • Transparent access to our care through GPS tracking
  • Real-time notifications of our arrivals and departures
  • Online scheduling for added convenience
  • Real-time schedule tracking to prevent missed appointments
  • Easy weekly billing

 

 

Training

Every dog is a good dog.

You love your K9, but sometimes your K9's behavior is less than ideal.

Fortunately, those unwanted behaviors simply need a little modifying. Our multi-certified trainers can help. We bring years of experience to bear on your K9's development, and will design training programs specifically suited to your K9's personality and your family's needs. We'll meet with you to discuss and identify problem areas. Then we'll customize a program that curbs unwanted behaviors and enforces new, ideal ones. You'll learn how to read your pet's body language and interact in ways that build desired behaviors. That perfect K9 you envisioned is just a few training sessions away.


We help your K9 successfully engage with your family through:

1. "The Basic 4" (sit, down, come, heel)
2. Good house manners (drop it, leave it, place)
3. Good social manners- (off, leave it, say hi)
4. On leash control – (heel, with me)
5. Off leash control (Recall and extended down stay) with e-collar training
6. Fun and Functional tricks
7. Alert commands etc.
8. Response to multinational commands


Occasionally more extreme behaviors like biting or food aggression must be curbed.

Our trainers offer multiple humane solutions that focus on positive reinforcement to help your K9 overcome them. To ensure long-term success, we'll ask you to participate in portions of your K9's training program. Together we can help your K9 go from "No" to "Good boy!"


When we're in command, obedience happens.

  • Certified trainers with proven success and varied K9 training backgrounds to bring out the best in your dog
  • A wide variety of training programs to enforce general obedience, eliminate extreme behavior and teach fun and functional tricks
  • Customized programs suited to your needs and your K9's personality
  • Continually reinforced training on daily walks and through fitness programs
  • Lessons to teach owners how to positively engage with their K9s
  • "Ask the Trainer" email support for the life of your K9

 

Pet Sitting

Home is where your K9's heart is.

Most boarding facilities offer little more than a kennel and food.

Your K9 becomes one of many. Instead, consider our pet sitting services. Your cherished furry friend can stay in the comfort of his own home, cared for from 8pm until 6am by loving experts while you're away. During our stay over, your K9 is provided with two 20-minute walks and a regular feeding schedule to help normalize his day while he awaits your return. He'll be happy surrounded by familiar items and scents.

Our pet sitting services also include a bunch of other tasks to keep your home running smoothly. In addition to feeding and walking your K9, we'll water your plants, take out the garbage, bring in the mail, cycle your indoor lights and perform other light duties as requested. You can vacation away knowing your K9 is in good hands.
