Dog Gone Walking & Pet Care


Dog Gone Walking & Pet Care can provide you and your fur child with a wide array of pet care options to keep your pet happy and healthy while you are away. 

We pride ourselves in the ability to adapt to our clients' specific needs, so please don't hesitate to ask about customizing any of the services below to better suit you and your pet's needs.


Consultations and Key Exchanges

In order to get you, your pet, and us to establish a healthy, long-lasting relationship that benefits us all, we are more than happy to offer a free initial 20 minute consultation to meet you and your pet and discuss a pet care plan.

Consultations are scheduled subject to manager and walker availability.  During this visit we need you to provide us with 2 copies of your house key and the signed forms to make future service more efficient and less costly for you, as subsequent meetings and key exchanges will be charged.

Booking Tips

We welcome this as an opportunity to help consumers considering hiring a professional pet care company, to make the best, most educated decisions possible when vetting a provider.  Please understand this should be done several days to possibly a few weeks prior to the start of your care services.  

Serious consideration must be taken, allowance of enough time to select options (we recommend three), review, interview and determine the best fit.  No two pets, no two pet parents, no two pet care providers are alike.  This is not a simple transaction - we want and need our clients to select us based on the desire to want to establish a long term relationship where all parties may be afforded the ability to know and benefit one another in the long term.  

Care for Cats in particular, who hide illness very adeptly, especially with strangers, will only relax and learn to enjoy care from us, if we are permitted to build that relationship.  

Dog Gone Walking & Pet Care will never pretend to be an appropriate fit for every pet parent, but we will always be direct & honest in our approach.  Your registration process, we cover each aspect clearly and in multiple ways.  Pet parents must accept responsibility in allowing enough time to take the care and consideration necessary to vet a provider that is appropriate for their and their pets needs, and to reach out to us as soon as there are questions regarding costs or policies or fees and to compare providers for the best fit possible.

Our regular working hours are between 10am and 5pm, but if you are in need of any care before 10am, after 5pm or with less then 24 hours notice of scheduling and/or cancelling we may be able to accomodate your request, there is a small additional fee to the regular price of the scheduled service.  Our regular rates for mid-day walks & visits apply, but we charge a weekend fee, and it is as follows:

Puppy Package

Ensure your lil' pups are growing up with the proper care and attention they need by allowing us to visit your pups twice a day between Monday and Friday, two 20 minute visits. A good rule of thumb to follow is, a puppy can hold their bladder 1 hour per 1 month of age, so at 2 months of age they can hold it for 2 hours, at 3 months of age they can hold it for 3 hours, etc.  Visits will make sure your lil' one is given the opportunity to relieve itself, is properly fed, hydrated, socialized...and not to mention lots of play time your pup loves! Limited Availability.  Rates are on a monthly basis, 3 month commitment.    


 Pup Package (only up to 6 months of age)

Non-Overnight Multiple Care Visits

While you're away, the party can stay! This is for independent pups who can thrive off of little socialization. We will work with you to create a schedule of daily visits to fit your pet(s)' needs. Standard multiple pet care visits should be no shorter than 30 minutes in length. In order to provide the best possible service and in keeping with the terms of our insurance policy, we require a minimum of two 30 minute visits per day for dogs during the duration of your trip. You may select individual visits for this option on our website if you're in need of multiple individual visits. 

  *Individual Daily Dog Walking Rates Apply*



Dog Park / Socialization Playday w Sitter / Doggie Daycare

Want to come home to a calm pup after a long day at the office?  Do you have a handyman coming to your home and think it would be best for pup to be out socializing?  Get some of your pup's pent up energy out by letting them run wild and free, in the safe communes of our local dog parks or have them ride along with your favorite sitter for the day.  Our care providers will be fully equipped with any supplies needed to ensure the ultimate of experiences and safety while in their care.  Due to normal workdays causing many dog parks and daily care to be less busy, safer, and more pleasant, days at the park or riding along vary case by case.  Requests must be made 48 hours in advance.  Doggie Daycare has limited availability at all times.

Ensure your pet is getting the care, exercise, and love it deserves while you are away in a cageless home enviroment.  We will treat your pet as if they are one of our own as they are a guest in our home, and do our best to maintain your pet's routine.  Care includes 2 walks a day, lots of love, and plenty of play within a large open privacy fenced environment.  You can't place a price "on peace of mind" and our Overnight Vacation Care in Our Home services is much more humane than the best boarding facilities in NOVA. Please Note: We Do Not Take Aggressive Dogs in Our Private Home Boarding for the Safety & Security of Every Dog & Human. Overnight Vacation Care mainly takes place in the Owner Beth's &/or the General Manager's Bridget's, or one of our very qualified and prescreened caregiver's homes, for example David Whalen or Nick Gurick.
