VACATION/OUT-OF-TOWN CARE

STANDARD VACATION CARE PACKAGE
This package is great for dogs that are ok for long periods of time on their own. We will give your pet a chance to stretch their legs, do their business, and burn off some energy three times a day. We do our best to keep the wait between visits as even as possible, usually around 8 hours or so. We’ll make sure that they have fresh water after each walk, food when scheduled, and plenty of attention. In addition, we’ll collect mail, water plants, and rotate lights each night to give the appearance that someone is home.

$15 per 20-minute visit ***
*(With 3 pets or more prices may increase slightly based on a case-by-case assessment)



PREMIUM VACATION CARE PACKAGE
Increasing the number of visits per day allows us to keep your dog’s “split” time between visits shorter than with the Standard Vacation Care Package (with the overnight split being a typical 8 hours or so). This package includes a 10-minute late night let-out for those with enclosed backyards or a short walk around the block for those without backyard access. Mail collection, plant watering, and light rotation are also included.

Three 20-minute visits ($15) and a late-night let out or short walk ($10) ***
*(With 3 pets or more prices may increase slightly based on a case-by-case assessment)




HOUSE/PET SITTING

House sitting is a great way to keep your pets in their home environment and to keep their stress levels down while you are away for extended periods of time. One of our professional walkers/house-sitters will stay at your home in your absence and care for your pets. This package includes:

* An experienced pet-sitter staying in your home with your pets. Sitters will generally leave only to run errands or walk other dogs as part of their daily jobs but never for more than a few hours.

* Plenty of personal attention and activity for your pets.

* 4 walks per day (20 minutes long or more).

* A strict following of house rules pertaining to your pets, and a continuation of any training or walking rituals so that your dog’s routine remains consistent.

*A low-impact presence in your home, including final day clean-up.

1-2 DOGS/PETS: $60 per night ***
3+ DOGS/PETS: $70 per night ***




BOARDING (For existing Walk This Way Clients ONLY)

On occasion we are able to board dogs at our home in Riverside. Boarding is an extremely limited service. Based on our personal judgment and availability, dogs we board must be of a certain temperament and personality type who will get along well with our own dog. Dogs we board must also have no history of chewing on furniture, “getting into things”, or having accidents indoors. We ask that clients not take it personally if we say no to boarding. Understand that this is our home and we are unwilling to take chances with dogs that may have issues with our dog or may cause damage to our property.

$60 per night ***
*(We will not board more than 2 dogs at a time)




TRANSPORT

We’re always happy to transport your dog if need be (to the groomer, a friend’s, or daycare). Arrangements for transport must be made in advance and are subject to availability.

$12 One-way *** $18 roundtrip




LOCK OUT SERVICE

For those of our clients who have provided us with keys to their homes (as opposed to those with electronic entry systems), we can lend a hand when you've been accidentally locked out of your home! Give us a call and we'll get you back inside using our keys as soon as we possibly can!

$20 between 8am and 10pm  ***  $40 between 10pm and 8am
