Our Off-Leash Walk Service Area
BEACH/PARK PLAY GROUPS
About the Walk: We take your dog to Fort Funston, McLaren, Ocean Beach, and other legal off leash parks in SF. Your dog will be out socializing hiking, and playing, with their buddies for an average of 2 to 2.5 hours a day (with a 75 minute walk) making for one tired pooch.
Pack Size: Groups consist of your dog and 5 friends or less per walker. We are skilled at group composition and pack management. Each group is tailored to each dog’s temperament, size, and energy level so each play group is safe and engaging.
Pick up/Drop off: We provide pick up and drop off service to and from your home or office. We plan our driving routes to the closest nearby neighborhood park to reduce extended car time for your dog and more FUN walk time.
Walk Times: We offer two 75 minute play groups each day; Morning - 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, or Afternoon - 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM for an average of 2.5 to 3 hour outings each day.
On Walk Training: Daily basic training within the pack to reinforce polite dog-to-dog interactions, leash manners, impulse control, positive play skills and socialization.
Rates: We suggest (and so do our clients) that you use our Monthly Discounted Packages for 3, 4 and 5 days a week to save you money and secure other perks for you and your pup. We require at least 3x a week for new clients, and have deeper discounts for two dog households.
NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP WALKS About the Walk: A small group walk around the neighborhood for 60 to 75 minutes. We offer daily small pack walks for socialization, fun, exercise and training with carefully chosen dog friends. We have consistent walkers each day building positive relationships with your dog.
Walk Times: Weekdays Mid-Day between 9:30 AM- 12:00 PM and Afternoons between 12:00 PM -3:00 PM.
On the Walk Training: We have a holistic approach where we use positive reinforcement “obedience breaks” for mental stimulation and urban agility games to challenge and engage your pup to get them nice and tired! Our walks are fast paced so all their exercise needs are addressed, or we can fit your dog into a more mellower group if this is a better fit for your pup. Our group walks offer the bonus of socialization and fun in a pack rather than solo potty breaks to build a positive relationship with your dog and their daily walker. We sometimes visit nearby parks as well. BONUS!
