You can schedule our Regular or Extended visits, you can also add on extra time, if you wish.

Prices depend on number of pets, time needed, travel, etc.  Go Here for Prices. 

The ultimate gift of love for your pet.

This service is for those pet parents who want to start their dogs out right with routine exercise every day.  It is great for all dogs’ mental and health well being.

This is our Most requested Service.   All pets need a break during our long work days, double shifts, unexpected or planned overtime. Pets can only go for so long without needing to go out. It can be agonizing for a grown pet to even think of having an accident inside. This service is especially needed for puppies and elderly pets (as for any pet) that cannot go for more than a few hours without needing to be relieved. If you work or are away from home 6 hours or more per day, give your pets the ultimate gift of love and call us for Mid-Day Let Out.

WE CAN PROVIDE THIS SERVICE FOR FIRST AND SECOND SHIFTS.

A trained and qualified Professional Pet Sitter will let your pet out to go to the bathroom, get some fresh air, stretch and let off some anxiety, play with toys or play ball, have some treats and always get lots of TLC and personal attention during the day while you are away.

This is just for the dogs who need some extra loving and bathroom breaks during your busy schedule.  We will not be caring for other pets in the home or bringing in your mail/newspapers because you will be there every day.  If you need extra help with pooper scooping or litterbox scooping, we do have added services if you wish for us to do that at mid day.

This is where you can choose and mix and match any of the 1 year packages above. Maybe you have really long days on Monday and Thursday and prefer TWO visits but only need ONE visit on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

IMPORTANT NOTE – Please keep in mind, that every dog deserves a break in the middle of the day and most would rather die than have an accident. If you must stop your Mid Day/Dog Walking Service for whatever reason, you must come home for a break or ask a friend, neighbor or relative to continue for your dog.  Your dog’s body will be used to elimination in the middle of the day and they will be looking forward to the companionship, exercise, fresh air, treats and love that they have come to look forward to every day.
