Have you ever wondered what your dog does all day while you are at work?  It probably goes something like: lay dog walking dogon the couch, get a drink of water, sniff the floor, lay on the couch, look out the window, lay on the couch…well you get the picture!  Soon your dog will probably start to make his own fun while you are at work, and that can lead to bad news for your house.  That is where Waggy Tails comes in…

As pet care professionals, Waggy Tails dog walkers provide one-on-one dog walking adventures for your stay-at-home pooches.  Our goal is to provide the same individual and undivided attention that you would provide your dog while you go walking together.  We strive to maintain training through positive reinforcement and personalized care, to ensure the safety of your dog.  Whether it is a walk around the block or hike through the woods, our dog walkers are fully focused on the exercise and enjoyment of your pup.

Waggy Tails offers daily visits Monday through Friday, or we can schedule visits for specific days throughout the week depending on your schedule.  We are not only available mid-day, but also in the afternoons and evenings – perfect if you have alternative hours, or just want to head out for dinner after work.  A dog walking visit including feeding (if needed), fresh water, a walk and/or playtime, training reinforcement, and a daily note recounting our adventure for the day.

Weekly Discounted Dog Walking Services

Please note: discounted dog walking rates only apply to regular, on-going, monthly schedules.  For all other requests, pet sitting rates will apply. 


Standard Walk (20+ minutes) – starting at $16 

This popular service is the perfect amount of time for a potty break and a quick workout.  Maybe you have an older dog who loves a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, or a pooch that likes to take his time to find his “spots” outside.  Our dog walkers will cater the energy level and activity to fit your individual dogs needs.


Extended Walk (40+ minutes) - starting at $20

Ready for a full 40 minutes of serious exercise for your dog?  This is a great amount of time for an intense power walk, or plenty of opportunities for sniffing along the way.  As always, our professional dog walkers cater the walk to match your dogs energy level, exercise needs, and weather conditions.  You will come home to a happy and content dog when you choose this walking option!


Express Let-Out (aka “Potty Break”) – starting at $12 

Please note: This visit can only be scheduled for dogs that are let out into a fenced enclosure. A minimum 20 minute walk is required for on-leash dogs. 

Do you have a puppy that is in potty training and needs several “potty breaks” while you are away at work?  This is the perfect visit for you.  We are happy to help you on your way to a potty trained pup! This express visit is also a great option for dogs who receive plenty of daily exercise with you, and they just need a quick bathroom break to hold them over until you get home to go walking.


*We will only take dogs to off-leash dog parks with your instructions to do so.  You can be sure that our dog walker’s attention will be on your dog 100% of the time while at the dog park. This type of service often requires Pet Sitting “By the Hour” to allow time for transportation to/from the park.

Travel Charges

We have a team of dog walkers located throughout the Knoxville and Oak Ridge areas to best serve your pet sitting needs.  A travel charge may apply based on the travel required for the closest available dog walker  in your area to reach your home.  Most clients do not incur any additional charges.   Please contact us with your street name for more specific information.

Last Minute Reservations

 Any dog walk requested on the same day as the walk occurs will incur a $5 same day booking fee.

Cancellation Policy

 To cancel a mid-day dog walk, email or leave a voicemail on the office phone, or contact your dog walker, at least by the day before the walk.  There will be no penalty for canceling if the cancellation is made the day prior to the walk.  Cancellations made the day of the walk will be charged in full for the visit.

You can also check out our Dog Walking F.A.Q’s for more information.

I started using Waggy Tails 3 years ago when I adopted my cat, Knoxy. My hometown is St. Louis, so my husband and I travel home a lot and because an 8-hour drive home is not conducive to bringing along a cat, we needed another option. We didn’t want to kennel our cat because it’s […]

Love the crew at Waggy Tails! I’m a veterinarian, so I’m always extra critical on who I let take care of our four legged kids and Waggy Tails did not disappoint!

Summer and her associates certainly put their heart into caring for animals of all types. Waggy Tails is the only organization I trust to care for my pets while away.
