Pacific Paw Santa Cruz Dog Walker

At Pacific Paw, we take a comprehensive approach to how we care for our clients. Because this is a relationship based on communication and trust, we use positive methods and encouragement during our outings. This allows your dog to know what is being requested of them. In synergy, we walk. 

Due to the nature of our program and the consistency we seek to provide for our clients, we require all pack walk/doggy daycare clients to hike with us a minimum of 2 days per week.

Pack Walk

$35 per day

Minimum 2 days per week

2 hour pack walk in town or the forest. This service is the heart of Pacific Paw. On a pack walk, your dog learns to hike cohesively with other dogs in a mindful manner. We use basic obedience (sit, stay, down, slow, lets go, focus) on the trail and refine leash etiquette. Clear communication allows your dog to seek out behaviors that reward them. It is our goal to stimulate your dog mentally and physically in a fun and challenging way. All dogs are picked up and dropped off between the time frame of 9am-3pm. 


Doggy Daycare

$50 for 2 days per week

$45 for 3-5 days per week

Minimum 2 days per week

Doggy Daycare includes a two hour pack walk and as well as structured off leash play at Pacific Paw. Smaller play groups give your dog the chance to play in a a safe environment before heading home. This also gives us a opportunity to connect with your dog on a personal level. Daycare begins at 9am and ends at 3pm. Pickup and drop off is included. 


Overnight Services

$75 a night

We are currently only providing overnight care for client's who are using our dog walking/daycare services. We want to ensure that every dog who stays with us is comfortable and confident in a pack walking environment. 

Looking for your dog to go on vacation while you do? Look no further! We provide boarding in our home which will give your pup a chance to hike all day and snooze the night away.  The overnight service includes a minimum 2 hour hike, structured off leash socialization and unlimited belly rubs.


At the end of the day, you will receive a photo and a detailed description of your dog's adventure.
