Frequently Asked Questions at Pets Crave Love™

Q: What do mid day dog walking visits include?

Every visit includes walking or yard time, waste pick up, medicating (if needed) and bringing in any boxes on your doorstep. Speak with us during your Meet & Greet regarding specific tasks you would like completed during your visits. 

Q: Can I request the same dog walker every time?

Pets Crave Love operates as a team. A manager and an employee will meet you and your pets at your Meet & Greet. We have an entire staff trained for your pet’s care and safety protocols to make sure we are always available. 

Q: Where is your Service Area?

Our service area is anywhere south of the river in South Austin. Depending on your location there may be a small fee to cover mileage. When you schedule your Meet & Greet we will look at your location and let you know if we’ll be able to accommodate you!

Q: What vaccines do you require?

We believe it’s the owner’s choice to vaccinate their dogs, beyond the legal requirement of rabies vaccines in the state of Texas. We do accept titers and trust that our clients will make the best decision for their dogs. A significant benefit of in-home dog walking is not having to vaccinate your pet unnecessarily. 

Q: Do you walk on Holidays and weekends?

We sure do. Seven days a week, 365 days a year, between 10 am and 3 pm, we are here for you and your dogs! That’s why we have an entire team to help “spread the love!” Holiday and weekend rates are posted on our Dog Walking page.

Q: My dog is destructive, anxious, excited, or bored, how can in-home dog walking and drop in visits help?

We offer daytime dog walking services to help cure the boredom blues! We will walk, play with, and pamper your dog while you are not there. Studies have shown that dogs need 45 minutes minimum of outdoor time activity to lead longer, healthier lives. And we know you’re busy! We are there to give your pet love and attention while you aren’t! We can also offer enrichment activities and suggestions during your Meet & Greet. These activities help your dog use their minds and their noses either during walks or yard time which results in a happier, more satisfied dogs and a happier you!

Q: I need a last minute dog walker. Can you help?

We believe that pets and their people are more comfortable with meeting us and discussing their personalized needs before we start our services, this is why we love our Meet & Greets! Once you are an existing client, you’ll have your own personalized Client Portal in our robust dog walking software where you can request appointments when you need them, right from your smartphone or computer!

Q: Can I board my dog with one of your team members?

A: All of our dog walking services take place from the comfort of our clients’ homes. The majority of our clients do very well in their home environment with our team providing mid-day dog walking and drop in visits to complement their parent’s morning and evening routine. Your animals will be less stressed, free from the risk of catching flu and viruses, not required to be over-vaccinated, and they will be home when you arrive home vs. needing to be picked up and dropped off.

Q: Do you work with fearful or aggressive dogs with behavior challenges?

We do work with dogs with special needs, however, this is on a case by case basis.

Through all of our years of experience, we have learned that fearful and anxious dogs do well with regular, scheduled dog walks and drop in visits with our team. We take the time to build trust with our four-footed clients. This can sometimes take a little longer, but our fear-free, force-free and positive reinforcement methods have even the most fearful of pets “eating out of our hands” with patience. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond to make sure the dogs we are with are as comfortable with us as possible.

Not every dog is right for our services and we make sure all of our clients are a great fit before they start with us.
