Dog Walking

Away at work or out to dinner? Paws First Dog Walking Programs are designed to give your cherished companion a bright spot during the day. Dogs require physical and mental stimulation just like humans do.

15 and 30 minute walks are our most popular, but longer walks are available.

Having you take care of my girls makes going away SO much easier. The girls and house look great. It’s so terrific to have confidence and trust in a pet sitter. They are, as you know, my children.
