Which Option Is Best For Your Dog
Only you can make this choice and decide which is the better option for your fur kid. We believe it is a personal choice based on your dog(s) personality, age and health.

Your fur kid can have the best of both worlds! Dogs like people need some down time so if your dog likes doggie daycare, schedule them to go to a daycare a few days out of the week and then have Housebound Hounds come on their down days at home for a walk.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will more than one person be walking my dog?
I hire dog walkers for a specific service area, I try to have at least 2 dog walkers assigned to our clients. This way if one can't make it, calls in sick, etc there is always a backup and we will never leave you hanging.
Why do i have to schedule twice a week to be guaranteed a spot with housebound hounds?
Due to the high demand of dog walking I have to be prepared and have enough walkers available each day in order to make sure everyone is taken care of. Sporadic scheduling makes this goal nearly impossible to do.
how long will you be at my house?
Our time starts when we enter your home and ends when we leave your house. We make the most out of our 25 minutes by securely leashing up your dog and then getting on our way so your dog can spend at least 22-20 minutes walking.
How does the gps tracking work?
When you receive your email update you can go in to Time To Pet under the conversations tab and you will see a blue button that says "details", click on the button and it will show you a map of where we walked, where and when we started and ended our visit.
Why won't you use retractable leashes?
Simply put, we can't have a Kung Fu Grip on the leash. It is HBHs policy to thread the handle of the leash through our hand and then wrap the leash around our wrist. We never ever want to lose our grip on a leash and have a dog get loose, I'd have to close up shop!
what if i have to cancel, will i be charged?
We understand things come up so there is no cancelation charge if you cancel a walk prior to us arriving at your home. However, if you forget to cancel a walk and we are already on our way to your home or we are there you will be charged for that walk.
when will you come during the day?
I try to accommodate client's request for a specific time frame, for example between 11:30-12:30. However, I also have to route my dog walkers visits according to where our clients live so the amount of drive time between walks is minimum. So the best I can do is to give everyone a time frame.
What about the weather, do you walk all year long?
Yes we walk year round! If the weather is dangerously hot or dangerously cold we will shorten our walks and play inside with plenty of opportunities for potty breaks.
How do I know if my dog will be safe with Housebound Hounds?
- We are extremely cautious and try to be as proactive as we can
- We have a checklist that we follow at each visit to make sure we are following all company policies
- We carry extra leashes on our bodies at all times, along with a Hands Free Belt with a Carabiner Clip for extra security
- We would absolutely 100% feel terrible and probably have to close up shop if something should ever happen to one of our hounds
What if I don't want my dog walked but just let out to potty? Is it the same price?
If you don't want your dog walked you can always reserve a Quick Potty Break which is 15 minutes and less expensive or if your dog loves to play fetch or just craves human companionship during the day choose the Dog Walking Visit but we don't have to walk.
Are you insured and bonded? How long have you been doing this?
Yes we are both insured commercially and bonded and we have been in business since 2000. In addition to the 16 plus years of walking we have dog behavior manuals and safety training videos to make sure your home and fur baby are safe and sound.
do you text or email me to let me know how it went with my dog?
Yes! Each client receives an email update in Time To Pet and you will receive a notification via email when we have completed our walk. You will get a note, cute picture and a GPS route of where we walked.
My dog loves to jog, do you providing dog running?
We can power walk your fur kid which is like a slow jog in many cases but at this time we don't provide hard core running during the day.
What if i need dog walking on weekends or in the evenings?
We try and keep all dog walking between the hours of 10am and 3pm Monday-Friday. We may be able to provide occasional walking outside these hours, it just depends on the circumstances and our availability.
I have 2 dogs that need walking during the week is it the same price for two dogs?
Yes! Our dog walking rates are $20 a walk no matter if you have 1 dog or 3 dogs.
do i provide you poop bags or do you bring your own?
We supply the poop bags! Also in Time To Pet you will let us know where you want us to leave the used bags at the end of our walk.
