Though dogs can take care of themselves, they choose not to—instead focusing their efforts on chasing squirrels, licking marmalade off babies, and learning American Sign Language. Give hardworking dogs or cats the attention they deserve with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three standard 30-minute dog walks from Divine Canine (a $42 value). See the sidebar for the specific zip codes covered in this Groupon.
Founded by an experienced animal-care professional, Divine Canine escorts dogs on energetic one-on-one walks. With today’s deal, owners drop off keys so walkers can pick up pooches for three midday strolls. After invigorating walks, pets are served fresh water and receive treats for good behavior and dead-on impressions of Bazooka Joe. The extra exercise can calm down hyperactive puppies and help overweight mutts shed pounds.
After each walk, owners can receive a written report card that details their dog’s activities, behavior, and thoughts on the Crimean War. Walkers can also feed dogs if asked, and scheduling is flexible—there is no minimum number of walks per week.
