Group Romp

Perfect for the dog who enjoys running, fetching, and meeting new dogs in an energized pack. Group romps are conducted in a big, private, fenced-in area that gets cleaned several times a day. We partner pups based on their personalities so they have fun and provide additional socialization for those newer to group activity.

Neighborhood Walk

Thirty minutes that mixes some sniff and stroll with aerobic, upbeat walking in your local neighborhood.  Plenty of time to handle business, let the nose catch up with neighborhood comings and goings, and enjoy a good stretch, fresh drink of water, treats, and affection.

  • $19 for up to two dogs in a household; $5 per extra pup
  • $17 for 5 walks a week, ongoing, with no set end date
  • Multiple walks during a single day can usually be taken.

Quick Relief Break

A fifteen minute break to stretch legs, head out to handle their business, get fresh water, a treat, and some behind the ear scratches.  Quick Relief breaks are particularly helpful for puppies in training, during medical recovery,  and for the elder set who need to relieve themselves a bit more often.

  • $12 for 15 minutes; $11 for 5 quick relief visits a week
  • Multiple quick visits during a single day usually can be made.

Often the dogs we rescue come with behavioral issues but no dependable personal history.  As someone dedicated to seeing animals find a forever home that works for everyone, here we will work to develop a trust-based relationship between you and your new best friend. Part my working one on one with your dog, part us working together to build your skills for dealing with behavioral problems while strengthening your relationship with your pal, we will develop a plan that works for your specific situation and desired outcomes. If we find that my approach does not work, I will help you find a compatible person to assist you and yours.

Gentle Souls Outings

A sniff and stroll, extended visit that brings elders, tender hearts, and mellow dogs together for an easy going, stress free time with kindred spirits.  Not everyone wants to run and fetch and some have zero interest in romping and rolling.  For those dogs who prefer taking in the scents and chilling in the sun with a pal, this is their group.  I will partner your pet with like-minded canines for a fulfilling and peaceful time out.

  • $25 for first dog in house, $5 each additional dog
  • $23 for 3 times or more per week, $5 for added pups

Buddy Time

A three-hour stretch of companionship and adventure for your dog.  From the moment we arrive, we will be together, engaging in a range of activities at the park or indoors, playing, exploring, or just hanging out.  A great break for young and old alike, providing lots of time for their special needs to be met.  At the end of our time, your pal will be well loved and ready for a nap.

  • $50 for 3 hours

Extended Time Away

Whether it be for a Real Estate showing of your home or a gathering of people not quite so crazy about your pals as we are, the Good Dog Club can help! Unlike Buddy Time, where we will often spend at least part of the time together in your home, Extended Time Away means exactly that: we come and retrieve your crew to whisk them away for a predetermined period of time. Activities will vary, depending upon the animal(s) and their specific needs. Let’s discuss how we can help you next time you need the house to yourself!

  • $30 per hour, includes pick up and drop off

Coming Soon:  Grand Adventures

Unfenced outings exploring local and state parks, trails, and dog friendly areas, designed specifically for a discreet number of  pups with lots of energy and dependable recall.  Seeking to start with one Grand Adventure a week, where your pup is picked up between 11-noon and returned to you sated and weary sometime between 2:30 to 4.  We will spend a minimum of 1 ½ to 2 hours on the trails and exploring creeks and hillsides.  Look for details in the coming months. In the meantime, let me know if you are interested in grand adventures for your pal.
