What are biobags?

Do you walk all dogs?

  • I do not discriminate against any animal.  I am happy to help and work through any issues you are having with your pet.  As a certified dog walker, I can gain your dogs respect and can help limit undesireable outbursts by controlling your dogs surroundings and rewarding appropriate behavior.  I will recommend the number of walks per week that I feel necessary to gain control of your dogs behavior.


Do you train dogs?

  • I am a Certified Professional Dog Walker.  I have  basic training skills and knowledge to ensure your dogs safety and well being while in my care.  I will refer you to a dog trainer for all behavior issues and will be happy to attend the training session to ensure consistency in correcting your dogs issue.


Service Questions

  • No, however a tired dog is a good dog.  So when it comes to exercise, more exercise is better and you will benefit from your pets improved behavior.


Do you offer services for pets other than dogs?

  • Yes, absolutely.  I am happy to help with any household pet.  Rates are the same as those for dogs.


Can you administer medication?

  • Yes, I can administer any mediation during the visit.   I need specific instructions from the owner at the initial meet and greet to ensure your pet receives the proper dosage.


Will you stay overnight with my dog?

  • Yes, I will stay in your home and "fill in" for you in your absence.    I offer two options.  A sleepover is a 12 hour stay and pet sitting is a 24 hour stay.    See Rates and Services.


If I schedule an half-hour walk, when do you start counting the 30 minutes with my pet?

  • The clock starts when I arrive at your door.  The time to leash your dog and/or dry them off after our walk is included in the requested time with your pet.

What is a regular schedule?

  • After the initial meet and greet we will discuss a schedule for your pet.   At that time you may decide to keep the same schedule each week, or if your schedule changes frequently, you can call, text or email your request to me.


What is your cancellation policy?

  • As long as the request to cancel is received before I am on my way to the visit, then you will not be charged.  The more notice the better.
