FAQs

Dog Walking Experience

Our motto is “safety first”. We work hard to ensure that all dogs are safe and secure throughout each walk. We use standard leashes for all walks. Our dog walkers hold each leash, but to provide a double safety measure, each leash is also attached to the dog walker with a safety harness belt.

We walk our dogs in small groups only, and dogs are walked with others that they interact well with. We take great care to get to know the temperament and personality of our dogs and do not take aggressive dogs as clients.

We know that our dogs like routine, and we always try to have the same dog walker greet your pup each day. If your regular dog walker is out, we will pair your pup with another City Tails team member that will be fully up to speed on your dog’s routine, personality, and needs.

Doggy Daycare Experience

Yes! We provide transportation within our radius for an additional fee. Pick-up and drop-off services include a relief walk.

Full-day daycare includes one relief walk. Additional relief walks are available for an extra charge.

Our cage-free facility has 3 dedicated doggy playrooms, and pups have the opportunity to explore different rooms throughout the day. Each playroom has comfortable benches and beds, and plenty of access to fresh water. Our facility is bright and playful, temperature controlled and well ventilated.

City Tails daycare is the perfect place to spend the day playing with friends and having fun. Our team interacts with each dog, offers lots of belly rubs and hugs, and engages the pups in fun activities throughout the day. We love to play music and games, encourage dogs to get exercise, and provide a quiet rest area when they need a break.

You don’t need to send anything, but we are always happy to accommodate special requests. Please provide us with food, medication, or other items for your dog, if needed. Our goal is to ensure that your dog feels comfortable, is well taken care of, and arrives at home happy and tired after a fun day of play.
