Services & Policies


 I offer 30 and 60-minute visits with special attention to each dog as a unique individual. Well-exercised dogs are psychologically and physically relaxed and more ready to bond with their human companions.

Short visits (30 minutes, $23) may be sufficient if your dog is older or less active, or if you simply need a “comfort visit” for your dog(s) while you are away from home.

60-minute visits ($30) are ideal for medium-to-high energy dogs, for dogs that require transportation to a park or trail for exercise, or for oldies that enjoy a good long cuddle session.

My service will help you and your dog tremendously if:

  • you have a long or unpredictable work schedule
  • you have adopted a highly energetic dog
  •  you are physically challenged, or unable to exercise with your dog for other reasons
  • your dog has socialization/behavior issues and cannot go to doggie daycare
  • you feel nervous or uncomfortable about sending your dog into group situations

I will focus entirely on the safety, happiness, and well-being of your dog.

Service Area

Redwood Romps! is based in Scotts Valley and serves Scotts Valley, Felton, Ben Lomond, and Mt. Hermon. Service in adjacent areas is sometimes available. Please call or send an email with your address or nearest cross streets to find out if you are in the Redwood Romps! service area.   


Redwood Romps! offers morning, mid-day, and early evening service, Monday through Friday.  Weekend and holiday service is also available. Vacation care (2-4 visits per day) can be tailored to the needs of your household.

If you are interested in hiring Redwood Romps! for your weekly or seasonal dog-care needs, please call or email to set up a free consultation. Consultations are generally available mid-morning on weekends and they run 60-90 minutes. Please contact Redwood Romps! at least ten days prior to your initial service date.


Please email or call to find out current availability.


Home visits are $30 for 60 minutes.

Short visits of 30 minutes are available at the rate of $23 for senior or special needs pets.

Payment Policy

  When you hire Redwood Romps! for dog walks or visits, payment for the initial service is due at the start of service.  After that you will be billed monthly.


 72 hours’ notice is required for cancellation of scheduled services without charge.

Storms and Heat Waves

 For the safety of your dog, regular romps will not be conducted during times of extreme heat (over 90 degrees) or severe  storm conditions.  In circumstances when roads are passable but outdoor activity is not safe, your dog will receive a potty break close to home and indoor playtime/TLC instead.

                 Special Dog-related Needs or Requests

At this time, Redwood Romps‘ focus is on walks and at-home play sessions. However, if you are an established customer and a special need arises, such as transportation to the vet/ groomer, or help with picking up supplies, I will be happy to make arrangements with you to meet those needs.

Special trips/doggie errands are billed at the rate of $35 per hour.

Athena weighs in at a svelte 100 pounds. Her buddy Max tops out at 110. These two enjoy California living to the fullest, nestled in the redwoods with their own swimming pool! (Well, ok the humans use the pool too.) You may notice that they have a more wolf-ish appearance than other German Shepherds you’ve seen. That’s a trait of Belgian shepherds. They joined the Redwood Romps! family in June of 2016.
