Dog Walking

Our goal is to establish a personal connection with your dog. For this reason, we limit our dog walking groups to a maximum of four dogs. We offer various options for the length of walks, as well as affordable packages. Our walking service at Animal Loving Care is customized to suit your dog’s walking style. Our dedicated staff members will provide you with detailed text updates after each visit. If you are in need of a dog walker in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, or Gowanus, send us a message and discover why we have been recognized as one of the top dog walking companies in Brooklyn, NYC.

Scheduling Policies

All weekday walks must be scheduled no later than the night before. Weekend walks must be scheduled by Friday at noon. Cancellations with less than 12 hours notice pay full amount.

Our peak walking hours are 11 AM to 4 PM. Off-peak walks are available by special arrangement.
We are not offering solo walks for new clients. Occasionally an existing group walk client may need temporary solo walks due to illness or injury and for this we can make special arrangements.
Our dog walkers currently service Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Columbia Street Waterfront and some parts of Gowanus, Red Hook and Park Slope in Brooklyn. Please see our coverage map below this FAQ section.
We operate as a team, so your dog may be cared for and walked by 2 to 3 trained individuals. This ensures coverage.

Your keys will be stored securely in a lockbox at our storefront and/or with your most frequent dog walker. If possible, we ask that you provide two sets of your keys so we always have a backup.

We will notify you via our customer portal, with a text message. The message will include information about the dogs your pet walked with, any notable moments from the walk, whether they did their business (#1 or #2), and any concerns (such as loose stool).
After scheduling your initial consultation, we will inquire about your specific requirements. If, for example, you need daily weekday walks, we will automatically schedule walks for your dog from Monday to Friday, within the time frame you authorize on a template. If your schedule is more unpredictable, you can use the Time to Pet app to request walks as necessary. You can also use this system to add or cancel walks.
Please shoot us an email (or use the form below this FAQ section) with the details of your needs! We will want to know your dog’s name, age, breed, and experience walking with other dogs. We will also need your address and suggestions on a good date and time for an initial consultation. Consultations must be scheduled at least two days prior to your dog’s first walk with us.

Yes, we do. Puppy visits are 30 minutes long and we can feed and spend time with your puppy as you see fit.

Most of our walks are completed by 5 PM, however we are happy to check the availability of our walkers to accommodate off-peak requests. The more notice you give, the more likely we will be able to accommodate. Off-peak walks are charged at a separate rate.
