Nourish, Protect, & Delight Your Pet

Does your dog need more walkies than you can provide?

The Playground doesn't just offer doggie daycare! We are continuing Citipets' high standard of excellence for our daily or occasional walking services. Our professional and reliable staff focus on making sure your best friend is well exercised and socialized under caring supervision, so you can come home to a happy pup.

Our highly capable, well trained, and CPR/First Aid certified staff picks up your pooch, takes her out for a romp to the beach or the park, and delivers her home satisfied and ready for her nap.

Best of all, your dog gets structured time in a "walk-pack" - interacting with other humans and dogs - as she gets her daily exercise.

Our walkers know the areas they are walking in, and understand the needs of every dog in their temporary pack. We are responsible users of dog parks - cleaning up after all our charges, and using our knowledge and skills to make sure they all have wonderful walk experiences.

Group Walks

A walk-pack is made up of 5-8 dogs. We assign dogs to each pack based on their size and temperament. This means we keep can get the right amount of exercise to high-energy, elderly, and small dogs. We have time slots in the morning and afternoon.

Our walkers pick up each member of the walk-pack and take them to a safe local off-leash dog park (we only let dogs off leash once they demonstrate good recall). At the park, we keep each dog active so they get plenty of exercise and stimulation. The dogs get a minimum of one hour park time and are gone for about one and a half to about two hours. (Does your pup need to be out longer than two hours? That's just what our doggie daycare is all about!)

  • $25 / walk
  • $40 for 2 walks
Individual Walks

We pick up your dog and give your dog a 30 minute private walk in your neighborhood. You tell us when you want your pup walked and we take care of the rest. Private walks are ideal for dogs that are aggressive toward other dogs, that have a health condition, or who just need special love and affection.

  • $25 / half hour walk
  • $40 for 2 half hour walks
