My name is Aubbie, and I live in West Seattle's Highland Park neighborhood with my dog Mavis, three cats, and an ever-changing cast of foster kittens. For more than twenty years I've enjoyed marketing and producing events, including a number of large scale public celebrations you've likely attended at one time or another. Now, nothing would bring me more joy than hanging out with your wigglebottoms and fluffy buns.
I'll treat your pets as if they were my own—which is to say I'll shower them with love and attention, offer plenty of opportunity for exercise and engaging play, and provide the structure they crave. Whether I'm just dropping in for a visit, coordinating a play date, leading a walk, or hosting a slumber party at my house, we are sure to develop a connection.
I am licensed and insured.
Available in zip codes 98106, 98116, 98126, 98136 and 98146.
Whether your dog likes a lazy stroll-n-sniff, or is "all business," he or she will set the pace and have my full attention. Up to three well-behaved dogs from the same family are welcome to join.
Does your dog have a BFF within a block or two of your home? We can pick up and drop off your dog's buddy on our route so they can keep each other company. Both families will enjoy a discount for their dog's walk. Offer is exclusively for dogs with good leash manners (no pulling, lunging, etc.), and limited to three dogs from the two families.
Drop-in visits at your home can be used for potty breaks, meals, water bowl refreshes, medicine administration, litter box cleaning, playtime, or backyard exercise. There is no additional charge for extra pets or administering medications or fluids. For your extended trip away, I can also collect mail, cycle lights and window coverings, water indoor plants, and move waste cans to the curb and back. I do not currently offer overnight stays.
sLEEPOVER at my house
"Boarding" sounds so boring! Your wigglebottoms (or fluffy buns) are invited to my house for a slumber party! I live in a walkable neighborhood with plenty of nearby trails and parks. Everybody is welcome on the couch and to dog pile in bed. I will take up to three well-behaved dogs at the same time—in addition to getting along with other dogs, your good dogs shouldn't want to chase, corner, or antagonize cats.
I don't operate a full day care, but if occasionally your dog needs some daytime company, let's talk about options for your puppy, senior, or busy little bee.
COMING SOON: WIGGLEBOTTOMS ON wheelS
It's like Uber for dogs and cats! We've all been there—dropping off fluffy buns at the crack of dawn for a dental cleaning or picking up wigglebottom before doggie day care closes can be ruff. With a little notice, we can arrange to get your sweet furry ones where they need to go, on time and without stress. Groomer, Grammy's house, doggie summer camp, maybe a matinee...
15-Minute POTTY BREAK or Visit
This brief drop-in can be used to run off steam in the backyard, take an express walk around the block, or receive mid-day medication/meals. No extra charge for additional pets.
30-Minute visit or PRIVATE walk
Whatever your wigglebottoms or fluffy buns need within a 30-minute session: walk, potty break, food, water, medication, litter box scooping, playtime, or backyard exercise. There is no extra charge for administering medications or fluids or for additional pets; however, for walks please add $9 for each additional dog from the same home (maximum 3).
45-Minute visit or Private Walk
Same service options as the 30-minute session. This may be the best option for multiple-pet homes, animals requiring fluids or medication, or dogs who need both a walk and meals or other attention. No extra charge for additional pets at home, but please add $9 each for a second or third family dog on walks.
60-Minute visit or PRIVATE walk
Do your fluffy buns need a little extra snuggle-time when you're away? Does your wigglebottom have a lot of wiggle to work out during the day? A full hour may be the ticket. An hour also allows for an on-leash adventure walk at your nearest park! For your dog's safety, I don't offer off-leash dog park outings.
30-minute buddy walk or play date
For two or three dogs who love each other's company and live nearby, we can arrange to walk together or romp off-leash in a secure backyard. Fee is per household. Longer walks or adventure outings can also be arranged.
coming soon: Pet TAXI
$25 for a 30-minute trip within 98106, 98116, 98126, 98136 and 98146. For additional drive or wait time, add $10 billed in 15-minute increments. Same rate for pick-up/drop-off of your pets before/after a sleepover at my home.
Sleepovers at my Home
Fee is for first dog, per night. Please add $25 for second and third dog from same family, per night. First cat is $25 per night; second cat is $10. Due to high demand and limited space, please add 12% for stays that include any of the following holidays: Christmas Eve/Christmas, New Year's Eve/New Year's Day, Memorial Day and Labor Day. Book early!
Occasional Day Care
Schedule permitting, your dog is welcome to hang out with me and Mavis at our house. Walks and playtime are included, of course. Fees are for first dog. Second and third dogs are 50% listed rate.
- $10 per hour
- $25 up to 4 hours
- $40 up to 10 hours
- $50 for 10+ hours
three 30-Minute visits per day
A great option for kitties who don't need an overnight sitter, but still appreciate a little extra attention. And let's face it—this gives Mom and Dad peace of mind, as well.
GOOD NEIGHBOR DISCOUNT
I offer a discount for dog walks and home visits to people living in my immediate neighborhood. Less travel time and gas is a savings for me that I'm happy to pass on. If you live between 9th & 16th Avenues SW, and SW Henderson and Holly Streets, please let me know at the time of booking.
