Dog Walking

At Just Happy Dogs, we understand that walking your pet is as much about trust as it is about “the walk.” You must trust your Dog Walker to know how to handle your pet on a leash that extends into the world. That’s a huge responsibility. You must trust your Dog Walker with the keys to your house or apartment if you will not be home when the walker arrives. And, of course, you must trust your Dog Walker to be in your home among your possessions. That’s a lot of trust to have for someone who is essentially a stranger to you.

That’s why saying we are bonded and insured and all our walks are GPS tracked just isn’t enough. We want you to be assured that your walker has been background checked, which report is available to you upon request, has been thoroughly interviewed by us and has loads of experience in taking care of dogs and loads of love for them. Wherever possible, your walker will join us for the Meet & Greet so you can put a face to the name.

If your walker has any questions for you during the visit, our app includes a chat feature so communication is instantaneous. All this so your pet can enjoy every scent and every sniff along the way. If feeding is on the agenda, we’ll take care of that before the walk and make sure your pet has a full bowl of fresh, clean water before we leave. And just before we lock up and turn out the lights, we’ll take a picture of your pet to send to you.

Our Dog Walking Hours

We keep an eye on the weather, or any event that may have a negative impact on your furry friend’s walk or the walker’s ability to arrive safely at your location. That is why our walks have a “span” time of two hours. For example, if you schedule a 2 PM walk, your walker may arrive between 1 and 3 PM.

If weather makes the walk impossible, your walker will still do everything else on the agenda and stay with your pet for the scheduled time.

  • Daily (except Holidays): 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM
  • Holidays: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM

A dog walking

We’re sure that as a pet guardian, you want to make sure your four-legged family member is in good hands. And, of course, as pet guardians ourselves, we want to make sure that your pooch is a good fit for us.

That’s why we require a Meet n’ Greet for all new customers so we can all agree that the fit is doggone perfect.

Meet n’ Greets take about a half hour and, for walks, are held at your house.

We require a Meet n’ Greet even if you don’t have immediate plans to take advantage of our services. Once it’s out of the way, you’ll have the ability to schedule a stay if something comes up last minute. And, besides, it’s a great way for all of us to get to know each other.
