Helpful Information

Walking or Doggie Daycare?  Only you can make the choice to decide which is the better option for your fur kid.  We believe it is a  personal choice based on your dog(s) personality, age and health.  Here are some tips to help you decide.


  • ​Better suited for the multiple dog household and more affordable
  • Dog walking is great for the socially shy or dog aggressive pooches
  • If you worry about your fur kid getting sick from a doggie daycare
  • Older dogs tend to do better with dog walking because of health reasons
  • Puppies that are not fixed or have not received all their shots can't go to daycare just yet
  • Dogs who get nervous riding in cars, being away from home or become stressed in loud environments 
  • If you tend to worry about the possibility of dog fights breaking out or the number of staff per dog (supervision)
  • If your short on time during the day you don't need to schedule drop-off and pickup. We come right to your home.
  • If you are a control freak (like me) and like knowing that your baby is at home safe and sound

Your fur kid can have the best of  both worlds!  Dogs like people need some down time so if your dog likes  doggie daycare, schedule them to go to a daycare a few days out of the  week and then have Housebound Hounds come on their down days at home for  a walk.
