Dog Walking

We make your work week easier—on you and your dog

You focus on business… And everything else on your to-do list… We’ll make sure your dog has a great day.

The Animal Nanny approach to dog walking

Skilled Nannies

Our Nannies are not hobbyists or well-intentioned animal lovers, but skilled, professional dog walkers who take a serious, safe (though fun-loving) approach to your dog’s outing.

A Real Leg Stretch

No quick 10-minute potty stops. Your Nanny takes your dog for a full 30 or 45-minute neighborhood spin for the physical exercise and mental stimulation all dogs need.

No Car Rides or Groups

For your dog’s safety and comfort we specialize in on-leash neighborhood walks for individual dogs, or up to two (three?) household siblings who enjoy walking together.

Walks Catered to Your Dog

Some dogs like to run and others live for a good sniff at all their favorite spots. Your Nanny will cater the speed and rigor of your dog’s walk to her age, health, and personal preferences.

Undivided Attention

Our professional Nannies keep a sharp eye on the surrounding environment and your dog’s body language, never their cell phones. Our goal is to maximize your dog’s safety and fun.

How our dog walking service works

step1
A quick email or phone chat

To make sure we’re a great fit for you, we want to hear a bit about your needs and answer any questions you may have. We know you’re busy, so we can do this however works best for you—by email, via a quick phone chat at your convenience with our owner Marna, or you can fill out our New Client Inquiry Form.

step2
A Free get-to-know-each other Consult

If our service meets your needs Marna will schedule a Consult Nanny to visit your home according to your schedule. Our Consult Nanny’s job is to answer any remaining questions, learn all about your dog and her needs, review everything you need done and where to find supplies, and give you a chance to meet us in person.

step3
We assign you a Nanny

After your consult, our owner Marna will hand pick a Nanny for you and your dog, taking into account your dog’s personality and walk needs, each Nanny’s specialized knowledge and skills, and your location.

step4
You focus at work

We’ll take excellent, loving care of your dog so you can fully focus on your job, family, and all those endless errands. And for extra peace of mind your Nanny will post Nanny Notes to a digital journal after each walk so you know your dog is having a great day.
