Meet and Greet

The initial in home consultation is FREE. 

It includes meeting you and your dog and collecting all the important information, including care instructions.  In addition, we will fill out all the necessary documents, tour your home and get familiar with the routine of your dog.  We understand that each dog is very different and we will create a customized care program based on the individual needs and habits of each animal.  Allow 30 to 60 minutes for the consultation.  We also ask the clients to provide TWO sets of house keys at our first meeting.

Dog Walking Services and Prices

When you work long hours we will give your dog healthy exercise with a lot of TLC.  Dogs need mental, physical and  emotional stimulation for their well being.  A healthy walk with a lot of sniffing and exploring can fulfill that need.  We will take your dog on a walk through your neighborhood where your furry baby can exercise, see other dogs, people and explore.  And after the walk, fresh, cool water and a treat will be a great conclusion to a fun activity. 

Our walks range from 20 minutes to 45 minutes depending on your dog's needs. 

On each walk we always use only biodegradable and environmentally friendly poopy bags for every furry client.

Dog Park Adventure

When your doggie loves to socialize and meet a lot of new friends the dog park is the answer.

We will take your "social butterfly" for a stimulating dog park adventure, where your pet can freely run, exercise and interact with many other dogs at one time.

Mountain Hiking for Dogs

For high energy dogs we offer a mountain hike activity.  We take your doggie to the closest trail for active climbing, exploring and sniffing.  This service provides great and healthy exercise for lungs, heart, joints and muscles and  usually leaves your dog tired, but very happy and satisfied.  In addition, it stimulates a dog's senses, leading to natural excitement and emotional balance.

Client Testimonials

Last year, we found ourselves in a situation where we needed someone we could trust to come in and walk our beautiful puppy. For the past year and half, Natalya has been providing us with the most incredible service. Our dog is an energetic, fun loving Norwegian Elkhound who requires lots of walks. We needed to find someone who both understood Northern breeds as well as puppies and the fun and games they can get into. Natalya is kind, firm and consistent - which is exactly what Bjorn needed and needs. Natalya has become part of ours lives and I don't know what we would do without her. I love the notes she writes to us about the small adventures of the daily walk, the places explored and other details which she knows we would like to be informed about with respect to our dog. We highly recommend Natalya!
