FREE Consultation and Visit
We understand that many people do not like going outside during the winter months. We also get that many people go to work when it's dark and come home when it's dark, not giving them a lot of time to get their fur baby out for some exercise and some fun. Luckily for pet parents we LOVE walking in the winter months and believe me it makes a world of difference to your dog and his health to remain active during the long Nebraska winters.
Your Fur kid is our number #1 priority. If there is a weather advisory we can come over for a potty and play break.
If your fur kid must walk we use a 100% natural wax blend offers non-toxic protection from hot pavement and irritating sand and helps prevent ice and snow from sticking to your dog’s paws.
We hire pet specialists for a specific service area, we try to have at least 2 pet specialists assigned to our clients. This way if one can't make it, calls in sick, etc there is always a backup and we will never leave you hanging.
Due to the high demand of dog walking I have to be prepared and have enough walkers available each day in order to make sure everyone is taken care of. Sporadic scheduling makes this goal nearly impossible to do.
Our time starts when we enter your home and ends when we leave your house. We make the most out of our 25 minutes by securely leashing up your dog and then getting on our way so your dog can spend at least 22-20 minutes walking
When you receive your email update you can go in to Time To Pet under the conversations tab and you will see a blue button that says "details", click on the button and it will show you a map of where we walked, where and when we started and ended our visit.
Simply put, we can't have a Kung Fu Grip on the leash. It is HBHs policy to thread the handle of the leash through our hand and then wrap the leash around our wrist. We never ever want to lose our grip on a leash and have a dog get loose, I'd have to close up shop!
We understand things come up so there is no cancellation charge if you cancel a walk prior to us arriving at your home. However, if you forget to cancel a walk and we are already on our way to your home or we are there you will be charged for that walk.
Yes we walk year round! If the weather is dangerously hot or dangerously cold we will shorten our walks and play inside with plenty of opportunities for potty breaks.
We are extremely cautious and try to be as proactive as we can
If you don't want your dog walked you can always reserve a Play & Potty Break which is 15 minutes and less expensive or if your dog loves to play fetch or just craves human companionship.
Yes we are both insured commercially and bonded and we have been in business since 2000. In addition to the 16 plus years of walking we have dog behavior manuals and safety training videos to make sure your home and fur baby are safe and sound.
Yes! Each client receives an email update in Time To Pet and you will receive a notification via email when we have completed our walk. You will get a note, cute picture and a GPS route of where we walked.
We can power walk your fur kid which is like a slow jog in many cases but at this time we don't provide hard core running during the day
We try and keep all dog walking between the hours of 10am and 3pm Monday-Friday. We may be able to provide occasional walking outside these hours, it just depends on the circumstances and our availability.
Yes! Our dog walking rates are $20 a walk no matter if you have 1 dog or 3 dogs.
We supply the poop bags! Also in Time To Pet you will let us know where you want us to leave the used bags at the end of our walk.
Generally speaking, a puppy can control their bladder one hour for every month of age. So if your puppy is two months old, they can hold it for about two hours. Don't go longer than this between bathroom breaks or they're guaranteed to have an accident. Your goal is to get your new puppy house trained as quickly as possible.
Leaving your new family member free to roam and unsupervised in your home while you are at work is not a good idea for obvious reasons. Crate training is the only option new pet parents have. If you make your puppies crate a positive place to be from the start, potty training and leaving your puppy will be much easier.
You can leave music or a TV on, leave a t-shirt that smells like you in the crate and always associate the crate as a good thing by giving your pup lots of treats when he goes in his kennel and praise him
This totally depends on how long you are gone and your comfort level leaving your new fur baby. We recommend for puppies under 12 weeks, two visits a day if you are gone more than 8 hours a day. As puppies get older and their bladders develop then when they are between 4-6 months old you can probably get away with one long visit during the day.
Some vets will say not until your puppy has had all of his shots, others will say at 8 weeks. Check with your vet and get her recommendation.
It is better to be safe then sorry so any toys they can rip apart and swallow is a bad idea. No rawhides that can get stuck in their throat. We recommend a puppy kong with some of their kibble and peanut butter in it but frozen so it takes them longer to eat and occupies them at the same time.
