Loneliness unleashes the beast

Your dog starts missing you the moment you walk out the door. Some pets deal with loneliness in quiet, mopey ways. Others literally bounce off the walls until you come back home. See why it’s so important to weave loving, human interaction and regular exercise into your dog’s day.

  1. Call (202) 481-4848 to speak with one of our family members.
  2. Click here to fill out the questionnaire and sign the Home Access Policy and Terms of Service.
  3. We will set an introductory visit in your home so that you and your canine baby can meet us, ask questions, and show us anything we need to know about.
  4. We will then give you a private link so that you can schedule walks as your little one needs them.
  1. The registration allows for you to download a photo or PDF of your Vet’s certification.
  2. We take health and safety very seriously and require certification from your vet that your little one has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus), Bordetella (“kennel cough”), and Canine Influenza (the doggy flu).
  3. Your little one should not have ticks, fleas, or other pests.
  4. It is imperative that you tell us anything thing we should know about, such as behavioral or medical issues, or anything else that could impact their walk, the well-being of your little one, or our walkers. You should both give this information in your questionnaire and during your introductory visit.
  5. Your little one needs to have any and all legal licenses.
  6. While this point is about you instead of your little one; please keep your mobile device near you when we are supposed to be walking your pup. It is wise to also encourage your Trusted Friends to be near their mobile devices.
  1. We ask that you fill in how you would like us to enter in the registration. We will also review your instructions during our introductory visit.
  2. It is vital that you either turn off any alarm systems or instruct us on how to de-activate and re-activate them.
  3. If you would like to use a lockbox but do not own one, we are happy to provide one for you.
  4. If we are unable to enter your house through the process you have instructed us to follow, we will attempt to contact you and then your emergency contact. If we are unable to reach you or you are unable to guide us to entry, we will need to charge you for the service. Please keep your mobile device near you when we are supposed to be walking your pup.
  5. Please, please close the door to any room you do not want us to enter; both so that we know not to go there, and so that we do not need to worry about coaxing your little one out of those rooms.

We work hard to give you a consistent dog walker so that your little one knows who to expect. Unfortunately, there are times when a new walker needs to be assigned.  In those cases, we will set a meet & greet with you and your new walker, just like the first time we met you.  This is important as it gives the new walker and your puppy a chance to get to know each other ahead of time.

Walks are either 20 or 50 minutes, starting from the moment we enter your home to fetch your little one until the moment we step out after putting him or her away.  20 minute walks are long enough for your little one to get some fresh air, get a good sniff in, and enjoy the companionship with a human. 50 minute walks enable your pup to burn some energy.

We only walk dogs from one household at a time. Pack walks are dangerous and do not allow the walker to give each dog the attention he or she needs.

Your puppy will get wet if it rains.  We ask that you leave a towel out in case this happens and we will towel dry your little one before we leave.

The safety of your fur-baby is priority #1. That’s why we provide our own harnesses, fitted with Tractive GPS trackers to give you instant peace of mind. Tractive updates your little one’s location every 2 to 3 seconds and lets you see their path.  Additionally, our fully insured and bonded staff wears a body camera from the moment they step into your home until they leave so that you can see everything your little one sees.  Finally, all of our walkers are fully vaccinated.

  1. Depending on the severity, we will either call you or your vet first. If we first call your vet, you will be our very next call.  If we cannot reach you, we will call your Trusted Friend.
  2. We also have a relationship with Union Veterinary Clinic, who we might contact if we cannot reach your vet.
  1. A Trusted Friend is someone we can call if we cannot reach you. Unless your registration gives boundaries, we will entrust your Trusted Friend to make all decisions in your absence.
  2. You are allowed to have up to three Trusted Friends and need to rank order them so that we know who to call first.
  3. Your Trusted Friend will never have financial responsibility for their decisions. Our entire financial relationship is with you and you are responsible for all expenses incurred.

You may cancel any service, for any reason with 12-hour notice.
