Dog Walking:

Katie Casell walking dogsDuring our dog walks we give your dog not only the opportunity to relieve himself/herself, but also the opportunity to get valuable exercise or just stop and smell the “roses”. A tired dog is a good dog and just like exercise relieves stress in people it also relieves stress in dogs. So whether you work long hours or are just busy with the everyday chores of life, Dances with Dogs, Inc. will give your dog(s) the walk time they need.

Potty Break (up to 20 minutes):

$20.00 per visit

Standard Walk (30 minutes):

$25.00 per visit 4-5 days per week

Deluxe Walk (45 minutes):

* Rates apply to single dog households. There is a $4.00 charge for each additional dog (up to 3 dogs per walk). For dogs that need to be walked separately there will be an additional $10.00 charge.

*** If at any time Dances with Dogs, Inc. feels that your dog(s) are in distress due to heat exhaustion, fatigue, dehydration, or for any other reason, the walk will be cut short.  However, the amount of time spent with your pet will remain the same.

Pet Sitting visits:
