Dog Walks/Potty Breaks/Play Time
- We walk one or two dogs from the same household at the same time if they walk well on leash without pulling. If your dogs pull on leash we will walk them separately. Total time for the visit is 30 or 45 minutes including the time necessary to leash and unleash your dog and a treat before we leave.
- We are happy to work with your positive reinforcement trainer regarding leash manners for your dogs. If your dogs continue to pull excessively (thus endangering your dog and your dog walker), we reserve the right to terminate services immediately.
- Dogs walked off your property must wear collars with identification and rabies tag and be leashed.
