I will swing by your home on a weekday between 10am and 2pm to take your dog out for a private neighborhood walk lasting 30 minutes, in exchange for $20. Your dog and I will venture out onto the sidewalk, explore the streets of your home locale, discover the scents, sounds, and sights of the day, while enjoying the fresh air of the outdoors and the blissful exercise of a nice stroll.
As a trained professional, while walking with your dog, I will enforce doggie etiquette, leash manners, and basic obedience skills; as a dog lover, I will pamper your pooch with affection and praise :)
Bonus: At the end of our walk, I will leave a little "report card" detailing the highlights of your pup's excursion!
Your dog and I can also take a brief car-ride to one of Seattle's fabulous parks - either the Arboretum, Carkeek, Discovery, Hamlin, Ravenna/Cowen, or Woodland Park - for a private on-leash hike lasting 60 whole minutes, for $40. We will frolic in the lush greenery, and investigate all the excitingly wild aromas and rustlings, while getting ourselves thoroughly panting and exerted.
Again, I promise to uphold my professional standards, while practicing a loving combination of structure and fun :)
And of course, the hike still comes with a detailed "report card."
I can also give your dog's toenails a quick and painless trim while I'm with them, if you like, for an add-on price of $10 (presuming he/she allows it...). Alternatively, you can set up a nail trim appointment to meet me at Health Mutt on any day that works for both of us, for the bargain price of $12; or you can swing by Health Mutt for YAPPY HOUR on THURSDAYS, and get a discounted trim from me for just $8! (Health Mutt also discounts treats and chews for Yappy Hour by 10%!) For more info on doggie nail trims, please see the FAQ.
If you live:
South of 95th St
East of 8th Ave NW
West of 25th Ave NE
North of 45th St
then I am happy to serve your doggie-lovin' needs :)
For training, I am willing to travel somewhat beyond these limits, as far north as the county line at N/NE 205th St, west to the Sound, east as far as Lake Washington, and as far south as I-90.
Do you have a friendly pup who likes to mingle and loves to run? Are you curious about off-leash dog parks, but wary, unsure, or reluctant? Well, I have a wealth of insight, and just the cure to ease your concerns!
Whether you're new to town, new to your dog, or just looking for a new perspective on the whole dog park thing, I would be thrilled to show you the ropes! You, your dog, and I can meet at Norm's dog-friendly Eatery in Fremont, and then pile into my ride and go check out four of Seattle's fabulous off-leash dog parks - Woodland Park, Golden Gardens, Northacres, and Magnuson. I will provide insider knowledge on the particulars of each, as well as general off-leash area guidelines, and tips taylored just for you and your dog, then return you to Norm's.
One dog and up to two human guests are allowed per excursion. Your dog should be comfortable riding in cars, must be over 6 months of age, current on all vaccinations, and safe around other dogs and people. If your dog proves to lack adequate social skills at the park, we will skip the off-leash areas, and do a short on-leash hike instead, with recommendations for ways to obtain intermediate socialization and interim exercise. Either way, it's sure to be a fun and educational trip for all!
This tour takes approximately 2 hours, and costs $75.
