Newport Dog Walkers
We are a Premium dog walking service for Newport Rhode Island and surrounding areas. Call us to find out if we some service your area. Our number one goal is providing great care for your furry friend and we treat them as our own. We offer professional Dog Walking, Overnight Services and Doggie Day Camp. With our Overnight Service, we believe that our program is much healthier than putting your Pet with a Boarding Kennel. Let us design a program that fits your schedule or vacation regime, your Pet will be much happier with us. As Locals living in Newport RI, it gives our clients and hotel guest easy access to our home. We’re extremely professional, reliable and responsible. We make sure your pet gets exercise, has fun and receives love.
We have lots of experience with all breeds and understand how each has its own personality. Respect always creates trust in your dog. Our passion is that each furry friend is taken care of and attended to. We limit how many dogs we walk at one time, we’ve seen other dog companies walking up to 8 dogs at one time, one is limping along because its a senior dog and can not keep up with the pack and the dog walker isn’t paying attention. Our experience proves that by limiting the number of dogs in a walk really gives each dog experience of happiness, balance, and harmony. We love dogs and we want them to be happy. Your Pet will be cared for and loved.
We are fully insured and bonded.
TRAIL & BEACH HIKES
Our furry friend adventures are great exercise and are off -leash which gives dogs that can be off-leash freedom and allows them to socialize with other animals. We also offer ball throwing for those dogs that love fetching. Off leash will be for dogs that are trained and get along with other dogs, this is important, your dog’s safety is number one. On-leash dogs will have fun too and will get plenty of exercise. There are some dogs that are not socialized and can not be around other dogs, this is fine, we will walk them by themselves and they will not be bored. On all walks your doggy will receive love and attention. We pride ourselves in keeping our walks limited to two-three dogs at one time. Also we look after Senior dogs, they cannot keep up with the younger dogs, we take this into consideration. Overall your dog will receive emotional support and attention.
DOGGIE DAY CAMP
This is for Pet Owners who either work full/part-time or maybe have an event for the day that they will not be able to attend to their dog for that day. It could even be an Out of Town Guest staying at one of our local Hotels or renting a vacation home in Newport. Maybe you’ve planned an excursion for the day and either can’t bring your dog or don’t want to bring your dog. We offer Doggie Day Camp so your Furry Friend doesn’t have to be alone during the day. They will love it! We are located in Newport with space for lounging and playing, so you can drop off and pick up for easy access. All pet owners can be assured that your Pet will be taken care with love and attention with fresh water and treats through the day and lots of play. This also includes a 45-minute walk either on the beach or a hike, as well every 3 1/2 hours spent with us they will receive an additional walk until pick up. *NOTE* upon entering the camp or overnight ~ If you did not apply Flea Protection within the last month then there will be an additional fee of $15 and we will apply Frontline to your dog.
This is for an owner who is going on vacation and prefers that their dog stay at their home. Or it could be that your dog does not get along with other dogs (not socialized) so staying in their own home is the best solution. What we do is provide three 45-minute walks per day, one in the morning, afternoon and one in the evening. Then we provide one 15 minute check-in before bedtime. We will walk them and make sure they go potty. They will not be bored. We feed them and make sure that they have a full bowl of fresh water. We have found that some dogs prefer to be in their own home as long as they can get out for exercise, socialize and have some fun, some actually prefer this. We will make sure your Pet is taken care of and loved while you’re away.
SERVICING ALL NEWPORT HOTELS
Since this is a tourist town there are lots of guests that come into town for events as well as renting Vacation Homes. You may decide on an all-day excursion and may not want to bring your pet, we’re here to assist. We offer 2 to 9-hour dog sitting, we will take care of your doggie. We are located in Newport, very convenient to all Hotels. They will receive a 45 min walk every 3 1/2 to 4 hours. They will have fun, be loved and cared for while you’re on your excursion so you do not have to worry. Our requirement is that your Dog must be friendly, socialized with other dogs, be completely potty trained and be on a flea and tick program.
HEALTH AND CLEANLINESS
The health of your animal is very important to us and also to our other furry friends that we take care of. All animals must be on a “Flea and Tick Program”. If you did not apply Flea Protection within the last month then we will apply Frontline for an additional fee of $15. As you know flea and ticks are very dangerous and spread like wildfire and we take a lot of pride in keeping all of our friends safe and our home very clean with no fleas. Also vaccinations “must” be up-to-date and required in order for us to service your Pet. We do not take dogs that smell or have odor, that is not clean, I’m sorry but we keep our home clean and allow your dog to roam freely around the house. We advise all pet owners to bathe their pet before drop off.
WINTER WALKS & SENIOR WALKS
We also offer winter walks for those cold days that just are to cold to go the distance but lets them out of the house to get some exercise and to get their business taken care of. Also Senior dogs may be a little more fragile yet need their 30 minute walk this is perfect for senior doggies. The 30-minute walk is all around great any time of year whether Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall the 30-minute walk gets your Dog out of the house and will give them exercise as well get their business done. We have an array of different walks for our on and off-leash dogs so they don’t get bored and that your pet will love. We limit how many dogs we walk at one time, we believe that it is impossible to give the dogs emotional support and attention with too many dogs on one walk.
All overnights are at our home in Newport in a safe, clean and fun environment. They can leisurely relax outdoors or come inside and relax on pillows, whatever they like. If you’d like to see our environment, please make an appointment. This program is for dogs that are socialized and get along with other dogs and are completely potty trained. We do not take any dogs that are aggressive towards other animals or people. We have tasty Dinner Menus that you can choose for your dog, everything is homemade and healthy. All dogs receive 4 – 45-minute beach/hikes walks per day (included in Price). They will not be bored and they will have a great time. Lots of exercise makes a happy and healthy dog! *NOTE* upon entering the camp or overnight ~ If you did not apply Flea Protection within the last month then there will be an additional fee of $15 and we will apply Frontline to your dog.
Grooming is shampooing and conditioning your dog, there is no cutting involved. We brush and sometimes blow-dry if your dog needs it. We’ve found that lots of our clients want there dog cleaned before they come back from their vacation. We use only organic shampoos that are safe for your dog and leave them smelling wonderful. Sometimes we use a mild flea shampoo that helps to keep the fleas off which we recommend.
“We’ve been using Newport Dog Walkers for our wonderful Bungie for the past several months. Susanna is absolutely wonderful, and Bungie loves her. We are so happy we finally found a dog walker we can trust and depend on for our beloved Bungie. Susanna is compassionate and diligent with Bungie and this means everything to us.”
