FAQ

What benefits would hiring a dog walker give my dog?

There are many great reasons why hiring a dog walker is beneficial to both you and your pup. For dogs, it helps to keep them agile, limber and in shape, and can alleviate tendencies for destructive behavior (chewing, digging, etc.) by reducing hyperactivity and stress. Simply put, your dog will be significantly happier and healthier from regular walks and human interaction during the day.

What's in it for me?

The benefits of hiring a dog walker to care for your dog include peace of mind and reduced stress from knowing that your beloved pooch is getting the love and exercise he deserves when you are at the office or away from home. Hiring a dog walker will also save you up to an hour or more of your time each day, so you’ll have more opportunities to get things done at the office, the gym, or anywhere else you choose!

I have more than one dog. Can you walk them all together?

Absolutely! We love walking in groups, and all of our pros are experienced in doing so. Please factor in a cost of $3/walk for each additional dog.

Are there any additional charges I should know about?

The goal of Alfie’s pricing plan is to make things as simple and fair as possible for our clients. The only times that additional charges are incurred are during weekends (after 5pm Friday through Sunday) and major holidays (+$5/visit) and for service requests that fall outside of our normal walking hours (+$10/visit).

What time will you walk my dog?

Alfie’s normal walking and pet sitting hours are from 8am to 8pm, Monday through Sunday. Within those hours, we are happy to offer walks in a three hour window of your choice. If your walk needs fall outside of our normal hours, simply contact us and tell us about your situation – we’re always happy to work with you.

I have a crazy schedule that always changes. How much more do you charge for last-minute services?

Simply put, we never charge extra for a last-minute request! We understand that your schedule is unpredictable, and we certainly don’t want to punish you and your pup because of it. We’re committed to helping you – whether you know your schedule 5 weeks in advance or 5 minutes.
