Vacation care for dogs & cats:
You have many options when you have to leave town without your pet. This can be a very
stressful time for your pets and we feel that keeping them at home in familiar surroundings goes a long way in relieving some of the
stress of being separated from you. We offer to spend each night at your house where we will make sure that your dog does
not get lonely while you are away. In addition, we will give your dog 3 walks per day (one in the early morning, one in the
afternoon and one before bedtime.) We can also take care of many household chores while you are away, such as watering
plants, bringing in the mail, etc.
Rate: $40 per night.
Need your pet picked up or dropped off from
a groomer, boarding facility or veteranary office? We can arrange to have your pet transported wherever they need to go, within
our service area (see below), in a safe and reliable manner. Just give us 24 hours notice and consider them there.
$20 per pick up or drop off. $30 for round trip services.
Don't have the time to pick up
your pet's food, medications or other supplies? We can arrange to pick up whatever your pet needs and deliver it directly to
your home. Please give us 24 hours notice and we'll take care of the rest.
Rate: $15 per pick up.
Service Area: Temple of the Paw currently provides services throughout most of Central and Southern Marin County. This includes the cities
and communities of Fairfax, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Ross, Kentfield, Larkspur, Corte Madera, Greenbrae, Mill Valley, Tiburon and Belvedere.
Group play time:
Treat your dog to a safe and fun experience where he or she can play and socialize with a fun-loving
group of like-minded playmates. They will spend their time in our completely enclosed private dog park. Play
groups last for 1 hour and include pick up and drop off to and from your home (2 to 3 hours total.)
Rates: $20 per play session.
(Add $7 for each additional family dog.)
Private dog walks, runs or play time:
If your dog does not play well
with others or would rather just do his or her own thing, we offer a 45-minute one-on-one session which will be catered
to your dog's favorite activities. Whether it's a non-stop frisbee or ball marathon, a hike on Mt Tam or an extended snuggle
and cuddle session, we'll make sure your dog gets exactly what he or she wants.
Rates: $25 per 45 minute session. (Add
$5 for each additional family dog.)
Puppy play time:
Puppies require lots of attention and care in their formative
years. If you have to leave your puppy alone for long periods of time he or she can become bored and develop bad and/or
destructive habits. To break up the monotony of being alone for too long we offer a 45-minute puppy visit where we will make
sure your puppy is heathy, happy and pampered. We will also help with potty training and those very important
puppy socialization skills.
Rate: $25 per 45 minute session.
