Dog Visits In Your Home

Dog visits can include walks, yard let outs, playtime, feeding, administration of medications, and of course, lots of love! If your dog is in training, we are happy to reinforce the concepts your dog is learning. If you’ll be away from home and need multiple visits per day, please feel free to mix and match visit times to suit your dog’s needs. We can help you decide which visit length would work for your dog if needed.

15 minute visit – $17*
20 minute visit – $20*
30 minute visit – $25*
45 minute visit – $35**
60 minute visit – $45**

** visits longer than 30 minutes are not available at midday Monday through Friday

Please note: For the safety and comfort of your dog, we require a minimum of three visits per day for dogs who are home alone while their people are out of town.

Adventure Dog Walks – NEW!

One of our new services is Adventure Walks for Dogs! For Adventure Walks, we will pick up your dog at your home and take them someplace fun. Destinations may include local parks, wooded trails, lakes, or even my 11-acre tree farm on the western border of Plymouth. Adventure Walks can be done even on days when it is hot, rainy, or icy since we can head indoors to a pet store, a big box hardware store, the ice cream shop for a pup cup (with permission, of course), or another dog-friendly destination. If your dog has training goals, Adventure Walks are a GREAT time to work on things such as loose leash walking and recall.

Adventure Dogs usually stay within 3-4 miles of home, so where we go will depend on where you live, traffic, and what the weather is like. Adventure Walk visits are at least 30 minutes from the time of pick up to the time of drop off and may not be available at midday since they often run over because we are having so much fun! Please ask about scheduling availability if you are interested in sending your dog on a fun adventure. Your dog will thank you!

Adventure Dogs should be up to date on heartworm preventative and be using some form of flea/tick preventative. Adventure Dogs should be relatively good on leash and MUST be cooperative to either being crated or to wearing a dog seatbelt in the car. I will usually schedule an at-home walk or two to become familiar with your dog before taking him or her on their first adventure.

30 minute adventure – $30*
45 minute adventure – $40*
* please add sales tax to all services
** due to time constraints, visits longer than 30 minutes may not be available Monday through Friday at midday but please ask about availability.

Dog Day Afternoon at The Farm – NEW!

Have an important conference call for work and need your dog to get out of the house for a little while? Live in a home without a fenced-in yard but want your dog to run and play off-leash without going to a dog park? We have a fun option for you! My Shadow Dog Walking is based on an 11-acre tree farm in Medina. We have about an acre fenced in and the rest is orchards and fields just waiting to be explored. When out and about on the property, we use a long line so dogs can go off the beaten path and do lots of sniffing if they’d like to.

All dogs coming to the farm must be up to date on heartworm preventative, and be using some form of flea/tick preventative. Dogs visiting the farm must be free of intestinal parasites and other ailments including but not limited to: giardia, hookworms, roundworms, fleas, parvo, mange, and kennel cough. Because this is a tree farm with lots of tall grass, we will do our best to check for ticks and burrs upon return, but suggest that you do so as well.

Afternoon at the farm – $35* for the first hour, $20* each additional hour.
* please add sales tax to all services
Pick up and drop off via The Shadow Shuttle can be arranged depending on where you live.

Bring Your Own Human and Rent the Farm – NEW!

Need a private space to exercise, play, train, or walk with your dog? Want a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for your fall or winter photos? Ask about renting our 11-acre tree farm. You can use both fenced and unfenced areas as long as your dog is not allowed to chase the wildlife. The fenced area is about an acre and has some shade, chairs, a kiddie pool (if you want it), and a hose. The unfenced area includes lightly groomed walking trails through the orchards and fields. Yard rental is available by appointment only to one household at a time, or to two households whose dogs are already familiar with each other, with a maximum of two dogs per adult handler, not to exceed a total of four dogs. (Exceptions may be made to this limit depending on your usage plans so don’t hesitate to ask if you want to host a litter reunion or a birthday party). Reservations are to be paid in advance and will be honored rain or shine – no refunds will be issued unless there are dangerous weather conditions where we ask you to cancel your trip for the safety of you and your pup. The fence is a 4-foot wire fence with multiple gates to access trail areas. If your dog will jump the on or over fence in pursuit of wildlife, we do not suggest letting them off-leash.

All dogs coming to the farm must be up to date on heartworm preventative, and be using some form of flea/tick preventative. Dogs visiting the farm must be free of intestinal parasites and other ailments including but not limited to: giardia, hookworms, roundworms, fleas, parvo, mange, and kennel cough. Because this is a tree farm with lots of tall grass, we suggest that you check for ticks and burrs at the end of your visit. A hose is available for farm rental guests to fill water bowls or rinse muddy paws. Please note there is an unfenced shallow pond on-site and we DO NOT recommend your dog be allowed to swim in it.

Yard Rental – $25 per hour*
