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.

Redwood Romps! provides mental stimulation as well as physical exercise.

Short visits (30 minutes, $28) 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 ($35) 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 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 parts of Scotts Valley, Felton, and Ben Lomond. Some remote areas are included. Please be sure to include your neighborhood/ cross streets when you submit your service request.


Redwood Romps! offers morning, mid-day, and early evening service, Monday through Friday. Holiday/Vacation care can be tailored to the needs of your household. Pet sitting services include weekend service.

If you are interested in hiring Redwood Romps! for your weekly or seasonal dog-care needs, please use the contact link below. Consultations are generally arranged mid-morning on weekends and they run 60-90 minutes. Please contact Redwood Romps! at least ten days prior to your initial service date.


Home visits are $35 for 60 minutes.

Short visits of 30 minutes are available at the rate of $28 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 ongoing services without charge.

Redwood Romps! does not hold holiday/weekend service dates for new clients without a non-refundable deposit. Cancellation options for weekend/holiday services are limited. In order to maintain the premium-quality concierge nature of our service, we require advance notice for cancellation of services for major holidays. Thank you for understanding.

Shared Care

In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for your dogs, Redwood Romps! is not able to accommodate “shared care” pet sit requests. We are happy to provide early morning or midday walks during your vacation but combined care efforts with other providers are not available.

 Storms, Heat Waves, and other Extreme Weather events

 For the safety of your dog, regular romps will not be conducted during times of extreme heat (over 80 degrees) or severe  storm or smoke 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

Redwood Romps‘ focus is on walks and at-home enrichment 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 $40 per hour.
