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.   

  

Mid-day Dog Walks

To keep your dog's tail waggin', we can walk your dog between 10am and 4:45pm Monday - Friday.  Our walks include a water refresh and treat.

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!
