Dog Walks

RiversideBArk dog walks!We walk our dogs alone, or with 1-2 walking buddies.  At the end of each walk, we will towel-dry your pooch (if wet from rain), wipe her paws, and give a treat or meal as directed.  Our walkers are trained to walk the dogs with a backup safety collar in addition to your collar/harness, and they are certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid.

All clients receive a verification picture-text from the walk,  letting you know about the “pees ‘n poos”, and keeping you up-to-date on what you miss while you’re at work.

Dog Walk Prices:

20 minute quick stop: for those emergency runs. Includes a walk/jog, fresh water and food (optional) and a towel dry if it’s raining. $16

half-hour walk: this is our most popular service. 30 mins is enough time for most pups to stretch their legs, get some fresh air and exercise, and get down to “business”. $20

hour stroll: a morning or afternoon stroll at your dog’s pace. This is an excellent choice for crated dogs who need to stretch their legs, puppies and athletic dogs with energy to burn, and elderly dogs who need more time to enjoy their daily “constitutional”. $30

Special Requests

For each additional dog, please add $7
For solo walks, $3 (we assume that your dog can and wants to be walked with another dog. If this is not the case, we will go over what types of triggers and care specifics your dog needs to be safe on her walks)

For medication treatments (such as injections, compresses, eye ointments, etc.) $7   – note that  “pill pocket” type supplements and medicines given as treats are not charged a medication fee
