We always meet with prospective clients to better understand their needs. We make time to come to your home to meet you and your family. During the consultation, we’ll evaluate our dog’s basic knowledge of commands and temperament. If we’re meeting your kitty, you’ll familiarize us with its’ daily routine. We also have basic paperwork for you to complete.
Trail Expeditions or Urban Walks for Dogs
Whether it’s hiking in the beautiful Oakland Hills, or taking in the sea air along the waterside in Jack London, we spend 45 minutes to an hour of pure enjoyment together. Reinforcement training, socializing, and basic trail etiquette, are all apart of the mental and physical routine. Your dog will be a happy dog, and a better behaved dog!
Packages are available based on the number of walks per week. Some of our packages also include monthly baths, teeth brushing, flea/tick application.*One of our specialties is CPR (Canine Program Review) where we collaborate with you to continue to improve your relationship with your dog.
Day Care for Dogs
Our idea of doggie day care is for your dog to be out with us for two walks. They’ll spend their day romping, playing, and training in the fresh air. They’ll be out for a minimum of 5 hours. You’ll come home to a calm and peaceful house! Packages available.
Kitty Care, and other small animals
While you’re away, we can come to your home. We'll take the anxiety away for you and your kitty. We’ll come to feed, play, and clean the littler box. We can also check mail, water plants, take out the trash, and turn lights on/off for security. $25.00 per visit on weekdays. $35.00 per visit on weekends. Special rates for holidays.
Guidance and Support
Over the years, we've taken many dog training classes, and worked with trainers to develop our technique and style. We have a broad and beautiful perspective about how dogs learn, and how to manage large groups, as well as individuals. We teach the basics to help build better relationships between our clients and their four-legged friends.
We invented OFF DOGGIE, a dog training tool that helps clients teach their dog to stop jumping on them or their guests. It's called Off Doggie!
Baths and Basic Grooming
We know life is hectic. Let us help with baths, basic grooming, teeth brushing, and flea/tick applications. Prices vary based on the breed.
“Lori of Pawderosa Pet Care is so wonderful in many ways! I have 2 large dogs which each have their own issues. I had her take care of them while I was away on vacation and the day I received a text of a photo of my puppies on a walk I felt so much better! The both had big smiles on their faces. When I came home they were happy and healthy and spoiled from all the walking! One month after I returned from vacation, I just received another thank you for the opportunity to watch my dogs with low and behold a great photo of my doggies in the back yard, ON A MAGNET! How cool is that? And once again they have big smiles on their faces....I think they like it when I go on vacation! Thanks again Lori, you're the best!”

“So Young Atticus went from coming with me to work everyday to have to stay at home and with his grandparents a few days a week. Definitely not a happy time for me being dog less; or him being people less. So we tried dog day care, seemed okay at first but he started coming home with a weird look in his eye and just exhausted (like he never stopped) that coupled with an allergy attack that he never had before or since was the end of day care. Then I met Lori and Phil, and I found what is the greatest way to give Atticus more exercises and dog social time. I must admit I am jealous of him most days; who wouldn't want to go for a run in the east bay hills with a few dog friends and some tennis balls and treats to boot. Phil and Lori are real pros and have it down to a system that is safe and efficient I have every confidence with them caring for my ‘Best Friend’.”
