The Barking Lot is thrilled to offer regular in-home dog walking services to our Deerfield-area and nearby Chicagoland neighbors. Find your local dog walker today!
Just like humans, dogs need regular exercise and mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy. Leaving them alone at home for extended periods can cause anxiety and stress, and some dogs may even act out (with barking, chewing, etc.) as a result.
Exploring the outdoors gives dogs a chance to burn off extra energy and stimulate all of their senses. Let The Barking Lot help you give your beloved pet the time and attention they deserve, all day long!
We understand that your dog is a beloved family member and that it’s important to leave them in the hands of someone you can depend on.
Treat your pet to the best – a one-on-one, outdoor adventure with one of our dog-walking professionals. All members of our dog-walking team are friendly and reliable, have undergone background checks, and are both insured and bonded.
Dog walking is offered Monday – Friday. Most of our clients like to set a recurring schedule, though you can always contact your walker (or Dani, our staff coordinator) to make schedule changes, add individual walks, or request cancellations. We generally make every attempt to match your dog with the same walker consistently, with exceptions only in case of personal emergencies.
Walking sessions begin at 30 minutes in length. If your dog doesn’t require – or cannot handle – walks of that length, just let us know. Your dog walker can use some of that time for other tasks, like refreshing food/water bowls, playing with your pet, or administering medications.
We’ll come directly to your home and pick up your pet for a walk in familiar surroundings. Our dog walkers don’t normally follow any specific route, but we are happy to accommodate any requests you have. Just let us know at the initial “meet-and-greet” appointment!
If you need to cancel an appointment, we ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice. Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to the walk will be charged the normal, 30-minute rate.
Dog walking rates are set at $17 for each 30-minute session (assuming a regular schedule of 10 or more walks per month). We also offer individual sessions for $25, with no ongoing commitment needed. Got more than one pup? Additional dogs are only $5/session each!
Billing is done at the end of each month. We’ll email you an invoice, and can keep your credit card on file for automatic payments.
