Description of service

Price includes a 1 hour walk. She is picked up at my house, the group goes out to play together for an hour, and she is dropped off back at home. My dog gets the same walker every day, so she's really built a strong relationship with the walker. I always get a little note when I get home of the day's activities. The price also includes an initial visit/getting to know you time so that my dog wasn't freaked out when someone walked through the door.


Review of Service

My dog walkers are incredibly organized, caring and helpful. My dog looks forward to her daily walks and to pet-sitting time. She always comes home happy and very well exercised. My walker is very attentive and is the perfect dog walker for my spastic dog.


Tips

1.) Ask other pet owners or your veterinarian, grooming shop or pet store for references.

2.) Make sure the walker has a business license, and ask him or her for additional references.

3.) Ask the walker whether he or she walks dogs in large groups or individually - the more dogs a walker walks at once, the less attention he or she can pay to each dog. Check whether the walker offers small-group or individual walks, if necessary.

4.) Ask about the walker's water, feeding and cleanup policies.

5.) Set up a two-week trial period, and enlist a neighbor to see how the walker handles your dog when you're not there.
