Our group walks consist of four to six dogs. We like to keep the number to a minimum to allow for more personal attention and safety for your dog. Most of the time, the walks will be off -leash hiking, swimming and playing with their buddies in one of the many dog friendly areas of the city like Fort Funston, Chrissy Field, and McLaren park. Groups are determined by temperament, size and personality to ensure that all have a fun and stimulating experience. The walks are between 1 and 11/2 hours and it is likely that your dog will be out of the house for approximately 3 hours. There is a morning walk and an afternoon walk.
Requirements for getting into the group walk:
Boarding in our home – For regular clients only
$70 per day, $35 for each additional dog. Includes all walks, feeding, medication, free roam of the house and fenced in yard, special bed for a comfy sleep, plus lots of love and attention!!!
We currently accept Cash and Checks. Please make checks out to Four Paws Walking, LLC. You can choose to pay weekly, due on the Monday services begin or like most clients, get scheduled on our monthly plan in which case, payment will be collected on the first day of each month. There is a $25 fee for returned checks.
Your schedule needs to be the same from week to week. For example, if you decide to have your dog enter a Group Walk part time, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, he or she will have that slot from week to week. We cannot accommodate fluctuating schedules. If you need to add days or walks, we will do our best to work things out, however if all slots are filled, it may be difficult. This is important because groups are formed according to dog personalities, likes and dislikes and we would like to keep the groups as consistent as possible as well as small enough so each dog gets the attention they deserve.
Please notify us 24 hours in advance of any cancellation and we will credit you the following week or month. No credit will be given to dogs that are not home at the scheduled time of pick up.
