Daily Dog Care
Professional dog care services offer peace of mind
Does your dog seem lonely, depressed or bored? Is your dog having accidents during the day? Is your dog overweight? According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 56% of dogs in the U.S. were overweight or obese in 2017. This was up 2% from their 2016 findings.
Dogs love to walk and play! They need exercise and mental stimulation, and enjoy interacting with their environment. However, if you have a busy schedule or work long hours, it may not be possible for you to give your furry friend the time and attention he/she deserves during the day.
It Takes a Village Pet Care’s professional pet care and dog walking team will help alleviate the stress of making sure your dog receives the proper amount of exercise. Studies have shown that for overweight dogs, a 30-minute walk, three times per week can reduce blood pressure, increase energy, improve sense of well-being, and lower a dog’s weight by 15%.
Dog Care Discount Rate
Customers who schedule three or more, 30-, 40-, or 60-minute dog care visits in the same week, Monday-Friday, will earn a discounted rate. We also offer as needed pricing.
When you return home at the end of the day, your dog will be relaxed and anxious to greet you after an exciting day. This makes the end-of-the-day reunion enjoyable for both of you.
Puppies, Senior & Special Needs Pets
Every dog is special and has its own unique needs. We will meet with you and your furry friend to discuss your needs and create a Custom Care Plan (CCP). A CCP is customized to your dog's specific needs. After answering a series of questions and discussing your pet care goals, we will develop a plan to help guide you and our team in caring for your pet(s) per your exact specifications.
