Have you ever wondered what your dog does all day while you are at work? It probably goes something like: lay on 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) - $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. (price for 2 dog, +$2 per add’l on-leash dog; dogs in fenced enclosure included at no additional charge).
Extended Walk (40+ minutes) - $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! (price for 2 dog, +$2 per add’l on-leash dog; dogs in fenced enclosure included at no additional charge).
Express Let-Out (aka “Potty Break”) – $12
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. (price for 2 dog, +$2 per add’l dog)
*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.
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. Homes within 10 miles round trip from our walkers’ homes do not incur any additional charges. Please contact us with your street name for more specific information.
