Dog Walking Services

Certified dog walker with three small dogs at beach in Lewes, DelawareYour dog may be small, but he’s just like any other dog: he instinctively craves physical activity, mental stimulation, and companionship. He needs to be walked. But you don’t always have time for long walks, so he may not be getting everything he needs to be physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.

That’s why Little Paws and Big Adventures does the walking for you during the work week – leaving less on your plate and more time in your day.

Based on your dog’s needs, we offer two separate services: pack hikes at Cape Henlopen State Park (mornings only, M-F) or solo neighborhood walks (afternoons and evenings, M-F).

Pack Hikes:

  • We pick your dog up at your home for our daily hiking session: M-F mornings (9:00a.m. – noon)
  • We safely transport your dog to the walk site in an individual crate (or tethered securely if he is crate-shy)
  • We walk your dog two to five times a week, taking him out of the house for  approximately three hours a day – including at least an hour of hiking
  • With no more than 4 dogs in the pack, your dog gets close personal attention from a professionally certified dog walker
  • The same walker walks your dog every time, getting to know your dog’s personality while gaining his trust
  • We always walk dogs on-leash to ensure your dog’s safety and welfare
  • We only use positive reinforcement obedience techniques and always treat your dog with respect
  • On rainy days, we’ll pick your dog up as usual for a fun-filled indoor camp day at our house – and should it start raining during a hike, we keep dogs warm and dry by providing waterproof jackets and toweling them off before returning them home

Rates: Just $22 per outing

Each outing includes pick-up and drop-off, an hour hike, joy ride, massage.
Total time out of the house 2-3 hours!
And just $11 for each additional dog from the same family.
