dog walkers and pet sitters in Illinois areas of Pingree Grove, Burlington, GenoaDog Walking

Dog walks are one-on-one around your neighborhood, unless you have two dogs. Then we’d walk them both together. The time is based on your dog’s age, physical condition, size and energy level. The walk can be 20 minutes, or 30 minutes with 10 minutes of additional playtime, feeding, or brushing. If desired, the entire 30-minute visit can be devoted to the walk.

By providing exercise and attention on a daily basis, we eliminate boredom and destruction. An exercised pet is a happy pet!
