Frequently Asked Questions


1. Do you walk multiple dogs at the same time? That's up to you! You can decide whether or not you and/or your dog is comfortable walking with an additional dog. If your dog prefers to be walked individually, Tail Wags is happy to oblige. If your dog prefers a walking pet pal, we will even attempt to find your dog a compatible four legged walking companion. If you have no preference, we may walk your dog with another well-behaved, friendly dog in some cases, and would never walk your dog with an animal that was unfriendly, aggressive or one that caused your pet any discomfort or stress. At no time, unless expressly requested by you, will your dog ever be walked with more than two other dog pals.

2. What does your dog walking rate include? The mid-day walking prices include filling the water dish, feeding (if applicable), a 10, 20, or 30 minute walk, and of course, a treat!
