Our goal is to create a safe, fun, and loving environment for each and every Woofwalks dog. Our service differs from the others because we integrate basic manners and obedience into every hike. We work on heeling, recall, as well as socialization skills. All our clients are given preferred status for our in-home boarding services, from reservations to an immediate discount for being a weekly dog walking client. Boarding is in a cozy home environment and daily exercise is included in the cost. Our in-home boarding provides the structure that dogs crave and many of our clients have seen a marked improvement in their dogs from just a couple of nights at the Casa de Woofwalks.

At the main house, the pups get a couple of hours of play time. They usually go for an hour off-leash trail hike in the late morning or early afternoon, then come home and nap for a few hours. Early evening they have more playtime and are brought up for dinner and treats. Everyone hangs out for relaxing tv time, and they have a last potty break around 10 pm. Most pups sleep in the bedroom, except for those who are more comfortable in the adjoining room. We have crates for dogs who feels prefer them. We figure out the best situation for each dog.
