Jill’s Next Door dog walking services provide the much needed exercise, companionship, and potty break relief while you are unavailable. All customizable dog walks include a walk, potty break, fresh water refill, playtime, offered in varied time increments. Our goal is to provide you and your dog a service that meets your specific dog’s needs—engaging them while alleviating the stress and boredom that may lead to destructive behavior.
Is your dog a senior and needs a slower, shorter walk? Are they high energy and need to expend more energy or stress? Customized walking plans with preferred pace and routes can be discussed at the initial meet, noted by you on your pet care plan, and meet and greet/key pick up.

Getting Started with Dog Walking
First things first. Your Primary Sitter will come to you for a complimentary 30 minute Meet & Greet/Key Pick-Up in the comfort of your home to meet you and your pet(s). Once we discuss which pet care service works best for you and your pet, you can book through our online scheduling software, called Time to Pet (TTP). Time to Pet provides easy scheduling, detailed note tracking, and secure payment options. Visit reports, updates, and photos are included at the end of each visit in real time through TTP. Provide 2 sets of working keys (one for office for back up sitters in case of emergency, and one for your primary sitter) and be as detailed as possible while completing your online pet care plan.
For Jill’s Next Door, safety, wellness, and overall service satisfaction is our highest priority. We do not condone outdated punishment reinforcement tactics. JND does not use choke, prong, or shock collars, and will suggest other collar options that are most suitable to your dog’s needs.
Florida weather is definitely something to consider with dog walking services. We walk in rain or shine, but if there’s too much rain, or too much shine, adjustments may have to be made. If temperatures exceed 85 degrees, our walks may have to be reevaluated to assure pet safety and limit heat-related illnesses. For heavy rain with lightning, walks will be readjusted to assure pet and walker protection. For hurricane warnings, please check social media, email, and local weather reports. All efforts will be made to be there for you and your pet. Open communication is key during all service transactions. *A 5% administration fee will be applied to each invoice total.
Does your dog have a neighboring best friend dog and would like to be walked together? We can do this! Both dog owners must agree and a meeting with all parties is imperative to assure pup temperaments work together. We must confirm that both dogs are not aggressive and work well with one another. Screening is a must.
