  • Does your dog love time at the off leash parks in the Tacoma area, but you can't always get him there?
  • Do you know your dog's health, behavior, and well being would benefit from a simple daily walk?
  • Are you seeking quality care and pampering for your pets while you are on vacation?
  • Got a new puppy with frequent potty, play and cuddle needs?
  • Have you ever wished for help getting your pets to places like daycare, groomer and Vet appointments?
  • Would you feel relief having a home visit for your elderly/ill pet while you are away for the day.

Tacoma Doggy Day Care ServicesI can help you with all these pet care needs and more.  Whether doggy day care in the greater Tacoma, University Place and Gig Harbor areas, off leash walks at Tacoma area parks, or vacation pet care are just right for you, I can provide all your Tacoma area pet care needs.

In my new pet friendly vehicle I will pick up your pet from home, and off we will go for our amazing adventure to Chambers Bay, Point Defiance, or most any Tacoma area location.  At these parks your canines will have opportunity to run free and frolic with their furry friends, practice their social graces, and get lots of love and encouragement during their 30 to 60 minute sessions.  Your pets will return safe and satisfied, happy to see you upon your return.

Some dogs may be more suited to a leashed walk in their familiar surroundings. Because size and activity level vary greatly, I offer multiple walk options from
30 - 60 minutes.

I can come up to three visits a day for your pets while you are away. Premium overnights in your home are also available and offer a mid-day visit which may involve a walk.  My pet sitting always includes the basics, but may allow for extras such as washing and massage.  I have even been known to do some serenading!  There is always an abundance of loving talk and touch for your dear pet. Don't forget the daily notes, highlighting the bright spots of our time together.
