Dog Walking

We walk our dogs in small groups of 3 pups max, so that we can give each one the individual care and attention they need, while also allowing for natural socialization in a closely supervised, safe setting.   At the end of each walk, we will wipe your dog’s paws, give a treat or meal according to your instruction, dry off with a towel or cool down with some water.  Our walkers are trained to walk the dogs with a backup safety collar in addition to your collar/harness, and they are certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid.

 

All clients receive a secure group chat where we post pics, videos, GIFS, and updates from every walk!  This direct pipeline of communication with your ProspectBArk support team is one of the unique hallmarks of what we do, and ensures that you are always plugged into your dog’s day!
