When a man gets in trouble, he’s said to be “in the doghouse"; when a dog gets in trouble, he’s said to be “in the doghouse” since only humans can speak and they naturally define all terms in relation to themselves. Give your canine comrades what they’d ask for if they could with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get five 30-minute midday visits from Your Dog Smiles Pet Services (a $100 value). An initial meet-and-greet appointment is required for an additional fee ($20), though one 30-minute visit may be traded in to cover the appointment cost. Click here for service areas.
Your Dog Smiles Pet Services' brigade of professional dog-walkers offers busy dog-owners with services aimed at exercising, feeding, and entertaining canines during the workweek. Clients must schedule an in-house meet-and-greet prior to one-on-one time with pups to ensure that dog-walkers become acquainted with your pet's habits, dietary restrictions, and favorite walking routes. Then a staff member will visit with your four-legged friend for 30 minutes ($10 for an additional 15 minutes; $3 for an additional pet) between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday–Friday, to perform a variety of tasks, including putting out fresh food and water, going on walks, brushing your dog's coat, playing fetch, and teaching energetic pooches to communicate via Morse code. At the culmination of each visit, a Your Dog Smiles staffer can send a text message or leave a handwritten note updating dog-parents on their furry-kids.
