CHELLAWAGS

Personalized Pet Care In The Valley

Happy Pet Owners, Happy Dogs Since 2001!

Dogs are healthiest when exercising and socializing daily in their own neighborhoods and parks rather than the changing environments of boarding facilities. Chellawags offers dog walks ranging from 15-60 minutes and can be provided on a set weekly schedule or on an as-needed basis with daily adventures in group sizes they will be comfortable with.

Whether we’re in a pack setting or one-on-one, being their only walker ensures familiarity with each of their personalities for the best care possible. In hot weather. It’s also the best way for us to build a good partnership. If your dog is in it’s twilight years or has special needs the visit can be uniquely designed to accommodate them as well.  I check surface temperatures by feel, and adjust to alternate ares to walk, like those that are shaded or light-colored or simply walk them much earlier in the day or later in the afternoon.

A Step Above The Rest

Your Canine Concierge

On-going training is available aside from daily walks when they will learn the basic 5, as well as potty training if your dog is a new puppy. I use only positive reinforcement and build confidence in your dog gradually adding distractions as we advance the training. See example video.

I book, dog grooming and vet appointments for clients and provide taxi service for those times when they're in a pinch. I understand that busy schedules can change suddenly and I've got you covered.

Running low on dog food, bags or treats and need them fast? When customers run low on pet supplies I will also purchase and deliver from their local favorite stores and restock shelves and bins at home. Receipts are left on the counter top and totals are kept track of to apply to the next invoicing.

Daniel has been walking our dog since 2018. He is absolutely fantastic with our dog and is so conscientious. He treats our dog like family - always making sure he has fresh water on hot days, letting us know if he is not himself which alerts us to possible sickness or injury. In the other five years that he has been walking our dog, Daniel has NEVER missed a single day of walking (unless letting us know he would be on vacation) - even on the coldest, snowiest days! we have also had him dog sit on several occasions for multiple days at a time. Not only does he make sure our dog is walked, fed, etc. - he also checks on the house, brings in the mail, and plays with our pup so he gets lots of love and attention while we are gone. Daniel is a true professional, and beyond that - feels like family. If I could give Daniel 0 stars, I would!

Surprise there is no rating up here already. Daniel delivers his services exactly as described. He'll meet with you and your dog(s) to make sure there is a compatibility. He has a pretty wide range of services available, at a few different/reasonable price points (it gets more affordable with more dogs sharing his services). And best of all... he shows up when he's supposed to, does the work he's been asked to and leaves helpful notes at the end of every walk. I have a socially akward dog. She's in to her owners and not other people or dogs. But she loves Daniel, and has been affectionate with him since her first meeting. That's a rate feat for a dog walker to pull off. We're happy to have Daniel help us out most every weekday.

Daniel has the rare combination of being both a great dog walker and a fabulous business manager. Our beagle Highlander absolutely loves him, and Daniel is always so great about leaving little thoughtful treats for Highlander like a pup-friendly ice cream in the freezer on a hot day. He clearly has a passion for dogs and that comes through in the detailed notes he leaves each day about how the walk went. Daniel is also grewat at managing his business in that he keeps detailed track of schedules and invoices, and is very trustworthy. He realiably shows up on time every day (and he is the one who shows up, he doesn't outsource the walks to a parade of employees we've never met), stays for the full time, and locks up afterwards. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Minneapolis area looking for a trustworthy, reliable dog walker.

Daniel has been a godsend to our family and our two 2 dogs. We started using Diggers almost 3 years ago for daily walks for our dogs. This past fall we put our home up for sale and Daniel was a lifeline for all of the house showings and being able to take the dogs within 30 minutes notice. He never turned down a request to help and always responded quickly. Daniel is incredibly reliable, accountable and is truly a genuine guy. our dogs go nuts when they see Digger s truck pull up, they know they are about to have fun.

To be totally candid I am VERY overly protective Dog Mama. I am one of those people who orders two small whipped creams at the Starbucks drive through so each of my little chunk monsters can have a treat too. Needless to say finding a dog walker/sitter when we moved to Minneapolis cause me some anxiety. (Ok, a lot of anxiety, I wanted a full background check, drug screen and fingerprints) Then we met Daniel! I have to say Daniel is our life saver! We have two fat Bulldogs and one can be a real handful when it comes to new people and social events, but she LOVES Daniel. He is calm and sweet, and our dogs respond to him so well. We don't feel nervous or worried at all when we are away. He sends updates, and since our girls aren't big on long walks sometimes he'll just hang with them and snuggle for a bit before he heads out. We always come back to happy and tired pups! If you are looking for a dog walker Daniel will take great care of your pups.
