Dog Walking Service (Same Day or Next Day Service)
When we provide dog walking visits, we spend the first few minutes of our visit giving our furry friends some extra love and getting ready for the walk. Angela and Trisha are trained to walk in a way that’s comfortable, relaxing, and fun. The first few minutes are spent “sniffing” so they can have some structured down time. After the dog goes potty, we should have time to pick up the pace and get some good exercise in. We will walk as briskly as your dog can comfortably and safely walk. If your pup decides to pull or lunge, we’ll use distraction techniques to get them to refocus. We use “watch me,” touch,” “sit, or “let’s go.” We always have treats and will use them to reward good behavior. If your dog wants to stop to admire the scenery or sniff around a new spot for a moment, that’s okay. Mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercise.
