Santa Cruz California's Best Run and most trusted Specialized Doggy Daycare, Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service Since 2009!
We hike rain or shine 7 days per week! We hike together as a team always:) Sharing the care of your loved ones so we can help as one big happy family. We are entirely flexible and committed to your pets needs!
Our hikes are split into 2-3 groups depending on the day, in accordance with the pups who will be "bestest" pals, geography and energy levels. We want to give you and your furry family consistency.
Our time frame for pick ups and drop offs is between 10am and 4pm for group hikes, daycare pickups and drop offs have a one hour time frame of 9:30-10:30am for pickups and 3;30-4:30pm for drop offs.
We always consider puppy's who may be in crates or pets who might not have access to the outdoors and also the time of day you will be away, so we know how to split up their day and provide the best care possible! Our communication is awesome! From the initial consolation, through the time that you entrust us with your loved one, we meticulously gather details to ensure we are providing the best care!
For Group hikes we have a 2 day per week minimum. This allows the new Walkie pups to gain confidence and remain comfortable in a pack environment. There is no minimum for day-care services, or overnight pet sitting.
We charge a flat monthly rate for all services, and offer discounts for extended overnight care.
You can also purchase monthly packages if you need a combination of services.
We can put together any monthly package you need and you can change it month to month:)
We totally understand things come up, and want to remain flexible and compassionate. We give 4 free cancelations per year. If you need to cancel one of your monthly services within the 4 free days, we will credit you for your next month of reoccurring services.
We have an easy and awesome online/mobile scheduling system, you can log-in anytime to reschedule, cancel or switch days around.
We cannot at this time, take on any pups who are just visiting or on a vacation for our daycare or group hike program.
$10 additional for group hikes and daycare.

Rates are increased during these times due to the significant increase in the need for pet sitting. This is applied to compensate "Your Walkie" in full.
