Running – This service involves pacing your pup through a vigorous 1-hour running adventure. Like all good pacers, we make sure the dogs get water and rest breaks when appropriate. The distance is usually 4 to 7 miles, depending on the fitness level or your dog and the current weather conditions. If a new dog can’t initially run for a full hour, we break up the session with periods of walking and slowly build up their endurance. A run recap with statistics is provided to the owner after each workout.
Running Rate: $32 per session (purchased in packages of 6, 8 or 10). Extra dog +$8

Here we ease up the pace and take your pup on a purposeful stroll around the neighborhood for 25 minutes. During the outing they enjoy fresh air, bathroom breaks and sniffing out their territory.
