Daily Dog Walks and Feeding

Daily Dog Walks and feeding is  provided for owners at work, gone for most of day with other activities, or gone on vacations. This service is for dogs that are comfortable and relaxed alone in their homes while owners are gone. Even if owners are gone for days. If cats or other pets are in the home we take care of them also.


If owners are gone for the day we go in at assigned times for the walks. We can go to parks, beach, green belts, dog parks, or just around the neighborhoods. Each visit is one hour.

For owners on short vacations we go in first thing in the mornings to walk and feed the dog(s) or other pets. We will return later in the day to repeat the procedure. If there’s special needs or concerns we are flexible to meet the owners needs. We keep all pertinent information to make sure all pets are safe and healthy.  This service has been provided for many years with great success. Each visit is one hour.

The cost for this Pet Sitting Service is $25.00 per hour. Travel time may be an added cost in some cases.
