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 30 minute consultation to meet you and your pet and discuss a pet care plan.

Consultations are scheduled Monday through Friday during normal business hours, and Monday through Thursday into the early evening, subject to manager and walker availability.  During this visit we encourage 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.

Mid-day Dog Walks

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

DGW serves two types of clients: those who use us on an as-needed basis and those who use us on a regular basis.  Daily clients have the flexibility of adding visits here and there, as they need it. Our Monthly Flat Rate includes 5 Monday - Friday 10am - 4pm walks per week, one walk each day. The rate never changes regardless of the amount of walks per month. Please note: monthly contracts are not available for durations of less than three consecutive calendar months.

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!  Rates are on a monthly basis.

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.

Overnight Vacation Care in Our Home

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 Manager Tiffany's, or one of our very qualified and prescreened caregiver's homes, for example David Whalen or Nick Gurick.
