RATES

Meet & Greet for scheduled sit is free.

Meet & Greet for “just in case” is $15, which will be credited toward your first service when it occurs (within one calendar year).  If you need someone prepared to come for an unplanned visit if you’re away and unexpectedly unable to return on time, if you have pet that may need a pet taxi on short notice etc.

At the scheduled Meet & Greet, please be prepared with Client & Pet information (see Client Forms), TWO sets of needed keys and payment deposit.

Standard visit:  $25     A Standard visit is an approximately 20-30 minute visit.

Long visit:        $40-$50           A long visit is approximately 45-60 minutes.  If you have multiple pets needing care, if additional cleanup or care is needed or extra time for both playtime and feeding would be best for your pet, you would want to schedule a long visit.  Visits approximately 45 minutes are $40 and approximately 60 minutes are $50.

Short visit:       $18      A short visit would be less common, but if you have small pets (hamster, fish, rabbits etc) that don’t enjoy much attention or a cat that shuns anyone from outside the home, you may qualify for a short visit if their needs can be met in 15 minutes or less.

Pet Taxi:          $30 for drop off service (one-way service) plus $.50 per mile from requested origin to destination.  Round trip service $50 per hour plus $.50 per mile.

Lockout service:  Available to current clients 9 am-9 pm, $15.  This is a courtesy service we offer but we do not guarantee someone will be available at any given time, so also keep a locksmith’s information handy.

I’ve had pets my whole life.  Growing up we had several dogs, cats, rabbits & ducks, and even lambs for a time.  My grandparents even had a pair of pet skunks and a woodchuck at one point!  I loved horseback riding at the local stable and visiting the calves at the dairy farm.  As an adult, being a military family (now retired) we were more limited, but our dogs and cats have always been a part of our family.

I have experience with the young and old ones, the well and not-so-well.  In our house, we’ve dealt with allergies, auto-immune disorders, Addison’s disease, arthritis, hip dysplasia, cancer(s), kidney disease, UTIs, surgeries, physical therapy, alternative therapies, the list goes on.  I understand the level of care and gentle handling they require.

I know you’ve heard it before… it all started in my childhood. When it comes to living with dogs, for me it did. Dogs often outnumbered people in my house at any given time and I loved it. Our house was full and they were my best friends. Growing up my parents showed Salukis, my dad hunted with Brittanys, we lure coursed on the weekends, we groomed, exercised and played. It was great.

As an adult, I owned Friendly Grove Boarding while starting my massage training at the Northwest School of Animal Massage.  After selling the boarding kennel, I worked in animal rehabilitation treating dogs recovering from surgery, geriatric dogs that needed an extra boost, service dogs doing valuable work, and agility dogs who want to keep going.  I feel lucky to do what I absolutely love doing, working with dogs

I am a Canine Massage Therapist certified in Maintenance, Performance, and Rehabilitative Massage. I know how important your pet is to you and welcome the opportunity to care for them when you are away.

Dana offers massage, therapeutic exercise, nutritional therapy and more through The Holistic Dog.
