In addition to in-house pet sitting, we offer dog boarding, a real vacation destination for your pup. While you are away on a trip, you can send your doggie to a private boarding residence. He or she will live in a home environment with other dogs to play with, toys and treats, a yard to play in, daily walks, and lots of love.
Your dog will be in a home-away-from-home environment with 24-hour attention and care. Since most pet host families work from home, they are always available to monitor & provide round-the-clock care. With private dog boarding, your dog’s schedule will be followed and his or her needs will be met.
Perks of our services
Exclusive boarding: some clients want exclusive boarding (no other pets). We may be able to provide this, but it could be tricky since all of our sitters love animals and they would typically have at least one of their own. Nevertheless, some of them are "between doggies" –so we may be able to provide this service. However, additional charges may apply, since we would have to turn down all other clients to accommodate you and they.
Requirements before providing the service
Dog Boarding Pricing
Note: $10 surcharge on weekends (Fri-Sun) and holidays apply (see "Price and payment" page for a list of Major and Minor Holidays). Another $10 surcharge for puppies under 12 months may apply.
Dogs with any special needs (meds/behavior/not spayed or neutered etc.) may have a $10 surcharge.
Take into account that partial days are considered a full day. For example, Tuesday drop-off /Wednesday pick-up will be considered as 2 days regardless of the time of drop-off or pick-up. This is due to the very limited number of pets our Pet Hosts can keep at one time; partial days must be booked as full days to prevent overlap.
Many of the four-legged friends we take care of have parents that work really hard every day and whose busy schedules sometimes make it difficult for them to walk them. One of our primary services is to lend a hand in that department, so your dog can get the exercise it needs on a daily basis. Your dog will be healthier and you will be less stressed when performing your daily tasks.
Just like people, dogs require daily exercise and mental stimulation. Having contact with different environments, people, and objects in their routine help them to adapt better to their household. The most common exercise for your dog is walking or jogging, depending on needs and desires. In fact, most breeds of dogs have the need to travel up to 15 miles a day (a difficult target to reach when confined within a fenced yard). Also, without proper exercise, your dog may become irritated or frustrated, and resort to destructive behaviors to relieve stress and pent-up energy.
Your dog needs the exercise and you need a little help with your busy schedule. Let us be your helping hand to a calmer routine.

Daily Dog Walking Pricing
Note: For households with one or two dogs the price is the same. For those of you with three dogs or more, we need to schedule a 30 min slot for walks and charge an extra $5 for each additional dog. A $5 fee will be added to visits on weekends, before 7am, after 7pm, as well as last minute visits (scheduled less than 5 hours before the visit). We charge an additional $7.50 on holidays. Please see our "Prices and Payment" page for more details.
Some doggies need a lot of care and attention, and prefer to have a human to sleep next to at night. Furthermore, when you are away for a long period of time, you may need to consider that your house will be safe and well-kept.
An Overnight pet sitter will sleep in your home while you are away. They will follow your pet’s care guidelines, and care for your home as well. With an over night pet sitter, your home will look occupied while you are away, so you do not have to stress about the safety of your home. We will be available to care for house plants, keep the house tidy, bring in mail, and bring out garbage.
We are flexible, and are willing to work around your needs. We offer custom pricing for 24-hour pet care, large residencies with many animals, or other extended visits. In these cases, the pet sitter would “move in” to your home while you are away, providing round the clock care to your home and animals.
We offer overnight pet sitting service in your home. We can bring our inflatable bed with us or sleep in your guest room, or on a sofa. Generally, we arrive around 8-9 pm, after we are done with all of our pet-sitting visits for the day, and leave your home around 6-7 am. If our schedule allows, we will spend more time in the morning snoozing with your doggies. During our overnight stay, walks and other pet needs are included for no additional cost. If you are interested in our overnight pet sitting service, remember to consider an additional midday visit or two visits during the day.
Our overnight pet sitting / house sitting pricing:
An overnight pet sitting discount may apply for long term if you are away for weeks and we move in your home for the time you are out of town. We are willing to work out a custom price, depending on the duties required and length of service.
If you plan to be away from home for an extended period of time, our pet sitters can help you out in a blink and in the best possible way. Hiring a sitter will help you find peace of mind. Your furry kids will be fed, exercised, and played with. No more need to impose on family members, friends, or neighbors –let your pets stay at home where they feel at ease. With their own bed, toys, and familiar surroundings they will not feel so stressed while you are away.
When you hire one of our sitters, he or she will visit your pets in your home. They will make sure your pets follow their usual routine and feel safe and comfortable. They will also make sure that any small animals in the home receive proper care, and look after your home while you are away (pick up mail, take out your trash, water your plants and make it look occupied).

Most pets have very busy parents who work hard - and often, away from home. With a busy schedule, it can be difficult to find the time to take your doggy to where he or she needs to go.

Going away from home can be difficult when you own elderly or special needs pets, because they need 24 hour attention. With the help of DogsGoWalking, you can be away for business or pleasure knowing that your pet is in trustworthy, professional, loving hands. We are aware that each pet has its individual needs, that’s why we offer our furry clients an exclusive full-day care at home, where they can keep their usual routine.
Our sitter will stay in your home to feed your pet, make sure he has fresh water, take him out for potty breaks, clean up any pet-related messes, give him tons of love and attention, send pictures at your request and follow any other instructions you might have, such as special medical care. Besides, your house will look occupied during the days you’re away and we can give it a little love too by doing basic shores: water plants, pick up your mail and take out the trash.
Price: according to pet needs
Note: book this service in advance to guarantee sitter’s availability
If you do not have an animal, but would like to make sure that your home is taken care of while you are out of town, you may find it very affordable to hire us. As a full-time licensed and insured pet sitting company, we can lend you a hand with your mail, plants, lawn, air-conditioning, pool, etc.
We offer to perform minor duties such as checking on the pool, cleaning up the yard, having a key available on call for your pest control and other home services, contact a technician if needed, or be on emergency call for your house alarm. However, since we are pet sitters, we won’t be able to perform major maintenance work.

Your doggie can enjoy the amenities that dog-friendly parks offer, even with your busy schedule. Because he needs a daily dose of exercise to be healthy, we take him to a nearby park where we keep an eye on him while he runs on the grass wild and free with his friends. This also helps to reinforce socialization and to stimulate his mind, avoiding getting bored for being at home all day. We’ll find the best park for your 4-legged buddy or go to that special place that you know he already loves. Freedom, jumps, games and friends all together in the same place just for your pup.
Daily exercise is crucial to your dog's health and happiness. Running dogs helps them reduce many behavioral problems associated with boredom, excess energy, stress and anxiety. Also, when they get the amount of exercise they need, they will be calmer, exhibit little or no destructive behaviors, and be less likely to develop obesity, heart, hip and joint problems. Several running sessions will keep them in an optimal health and emotional condition.
Note: During the exercise we are on the lookout for signs of dehydration, fatigue or overexertion.
