how it works

Get In Touch

New around here? Fill out our contact form to apply and we will reach out within 72 hours. If we are a good fit for one another, we will send you a link to set up a profile in our pet care software and schedule a time to meet you and your pup. Our services are in high demand, so plan accordingly! It's never too early to reach out. 

Meet Our Team

Prior to your first service, a member of our management team will come to your home to meet you and your dog(s), review your profile with you, answer any questions, and get you set up with a lockbox if you don't have one. We want to get to know you, and for you and your dog to get to know us!

Book Online

Request dog walking services from your phone or computer. We offer pet care 365 days a year between 8AM and 8:30PM. Set up a reoccurring schedule with us, or book as needed! From potty breaks to Structured Walk + Train sessions, we have plenty of service options to keep your dog happy, healthy, and enriched.

Receive Pupdates

Our Pet Professionals will keep you updated via text message when we are on the way to your home, while out with your pup, and when we leave including REAL-TIME photos and videos of our adventure. We take communication very seriously around here!
