about $29/day*: Our most popular package. One off-leash group play session a day, five days a week (nearly the price of solo half hour app based services' walks). This package should be perfect to break up your dog's day with a full load of exercise, socialization, and learning in the great outdoors. Completely flexible cancellation or addition policy. Add $100/month for dogs under 1 year old.
1 ONE-HOUR SESSION
PER DAY WEEKDAYS
about $46/day* (~$23/walk*): Great for anybody who is gone for a long work day, has a lengthy commute, or who doesn't want to stress about making it home with much energy to walk their dog later. Recommended for athletic breed puppies to maintain a calm mind and help alleviate bad habits that can develop from boredom during their first year. Perfect for high endurance dogs who need a lot of exercise to burn off all their energy. Heavily discounted for buying in bulk!
2 ONE-HOUR SESSIONS
PER DAY WEEKDAYS
OUTside hours WALKS
Priced per session: starting at $20+ 1/2 hour, $35+ 1 hour.: Priced better than the app based services, and we're actually pros! Unfortunately we cannot provide private or semi private walks from 10am-4pm weekdays when we only do off leash groups, but we can provide private or semi private outside of 10-4 subject to availability, including nights and weekends! We can even take last minute needs with a lockbox on your door.

*$46/day price from above would be close to the daily price equivalent for this package in an avg month with 20 walks. This package provides two hour long sessions each worth $36 priced alone, but reduced to roughly $23 each most months for buying in bulk! That's about 40% off the second daily walk from our 1 Group Plan.
Your dog will be out with us for over 5 hours, cruising with us in between walks. They'll be wiped out, healthy, and happy when you get home. Completely flexible cancellation or addition policy.
15% multi-dog household discount.
We do not sell anything less than 5 day/week walking at this time. We offer 1 GROUP or 2 GROUP packages only. Per Day pricing is available for the following:
1 GROUP package users drop to $36 a day when they miss half the walking days or let me know before a month begins that they'd like to go Per Day for the following month. 2 GROUP package users drop to $61.50 for their 2 walks when they miss 8 walking days or when they let me know before a month begins they'd like to pay Per Day for the month. The Per Day rate may not be claimed for two consecutive months.
Please note that this pricing is how we offer flexibility to our current customers on full time walking plans who have to miss walks. This is not a plan we sign new customers on. Any higher multi-dog discount drops by 10% per dog on this plan.
We can provide private puppy visits for dogs who are not yet old enough to walk with groups but plan to eventually. Age doesn't matter and we like to start as young as possible. We can drop by for short potty breaks at 11ish, 1ish, and 3ish and times depend on where you fall in our service area. We can also provide longer walks outside of our normal business hours of 10-4 for puppies that are more draining and have training involved. Pick one or two potty breaks and/or add a half hour or hour visit outside of regular business hours if you'd like. Once puppies are ready they'll join one of our kindergarten or other walking groups. Make sure you read our page about preparing your puppy for our programs. And make sure to select a plan from above that's right for you once your pup is ready. We start them right after their last shot and begin training.
$15 for one potty break, $25 for two, $35 for three. $20 for a half hour puppy walk and $35 for an hour outside of 10-4pm.
For dogs under 1 who enter our groups there's a $100/month surcharge until their first birthday, or until the client supplies two professional training graduation certificates.
Outside hours walk details
Citizen Hound focuses on group walks during our typical business hours. Outside of our regular hours our staff is often free to provide walks for our clients and others as needed. If you would like a private or semi private visit for your dog and want to use a highly trained professional from a company that stands behind them please contact us with your needs. These are always subject to availability, but we're often available, even last minute! With rates equal to or better than the app based services there's not much of a decision to be made.
Starts at $20 for a half hour, or $35 for an hour but that price can vary based on circumstances such as time of day or how often. Inquire for a quote. Additional time is discounted so the above should not be read as a per hour charge and total will not exceed pet sitting prices.

We are 100% committed to making sure that your dog has an awesome time while in our care, with safety being our top concern. We guarantee that if you're not happy with our service on any particular day, we'll move mountains to make it right, or we'll provide a full refund for that day.
