Life can be hectic. We all want to live up to the “rockstar humans” image our dog’s have of us by choosing the best for them, but there are only so many hours in the day to get it all done.
Good news: you don’t have to do it alone. Our dog walking experts are here for you! No more cramming in a late night dog walk, skipping activities with friends, or rushing across town on your lunch break because your pups need some exercise or a potty break. There are many benefits of choosing to have a midday professional care for your pets:
- Potty breaks – Take time back in your day and give your schedule a break! We provide your pup with midday relief so you can worry about one less thing in your day.
- Short term relief – Changes like adding to your family or having surgery can disrupt your routine. We can provide short term exercise or breaks so you can focus elsewhere.
- Improving manners – The best way to keep leash manners sharp is with consistency! We work to improve their skills while they explore the neighborhood.
- Energy drain -Sometimes dogs have more energy than a walk can handle! We can play energy draining games to help them feel happy and tired.
Short Walk or Potty Break – $20
A great option for dogs who just need a short visit during the day! A quick walk down the block, a run around the backyard, or a short play session will break up their midday and help you know they are getting some relief.
Standard Walk or Potty Break – $26
Our most popular option! Dogs will enjoy playtime, a walk, or a cuddle session to add a fun break in their day. We specialize in providing your pup with both mental and physical exercise to keep them healthy and happy!
Extended Walk or Potty Break – $36
Sometimes a quick trip around the block just isn’t enough! Extended visits allow us time to play more intense games with your pup, give multiple pets a longer solo-walk, and provide a really enriching midday break.
Upgrade to an Outing – additional $15
Turn any regular walk to a true adventure! We take your dog on their own Lucky Pup Adventure! Your dog will get to explore an outdoor park, trail, or new location for a fun new experience!
We love helping families start on the right path with their new puppy! Our Puppy Outings help puppies gain confidence in new locations around town.
$40 per outing
Puppy Class – About three times per year we host Puppy Life Skills Classes in Sioux Falls, and once per month we team up with Tenacious Dog Training for Puppy and Adolescent Playtime. At Puppy Playtime we help teach puppy owners how to help their puppy make new friends and set them up for success in life together. We currently do not have any classes on the calendar. Looking for an in-person class right now? Check out group classes and private training with Tenacious Dog Training!
Lastly, our Lucky Pup Guide will show you how to build a happy and fulfilling life together with your dog that you BOTH love. If you already have a dog, this guide will help you identify, prioritize, and empower you to make small but life-altering changes. A solid foundation is what all relationships are built on, and we can’t wait to help.
Pet Care For Life’s Changes
Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and all we can do is work with the changes and challenges that come our way. Sometimes these changes are expected, and sometimes they are unexpected. Either way, we can help provide the consistency your pet craves when your world is changing.
- Selling your home – Can’t make it home to take your dog out before a showing or during an inspections? We attend to your pet and give your schedule a break.
- Surgery or illness – Focus on your health while we focus on your pet’s needs. Playtime, walks and litter box cleaning can ease your burden while getting well.
- New child assistance – Headed to the hospital? Arrange for “on-call” pet sitting until you come home. After that, we can cross “walk the dog” off your To Do list!
- Traveling – Traveling with pets means they sometimes have to stay at the hotel for a day. We can give them their own adventure instead!
Aquariums are an investment and require highly specialized care. Our aquarium experts can monitor your tank, feed fish and corals, and provide any scheduled or necessary maintenance while you’re away. Don’t leave your investment in the hands of just anyone!!
