Services and Rates

Plum & Friends offers several options to care for your furry family members. Please read below for ways we can care for your pet! 

Service Offered Description of Service Service Rates
Dog Walks: 

 

Each walk is 20-30 minutes depending on your dog’s specific needs and weather. 

Your dog is leashed and taken for a walk in your neighbourhood. All walks will include bathroom time, food and water upon request after the walk, reinforcing proper leash manners, positive reinforcement and rewards, and making sure that paws are clean to prevent mess. Walks will take place unless the weather is too dangerous or inclement for your pet.  1 dog = $42.50/hour or $25/half-hour

2 dogs = $65.00/hour or $45.00/half-hour

* 2 dogs from same address

(Please note we do not walk and feed dogs at home while owners are on holiday and no one is living in the house. Please refer to our overnight housesitting services for alternative options.)

 

Dog Park Adventure:

 

If suitable for your dog and approved by the owner, there are several wonderful off leash parks in Auckland to have a canine adventure. These park adventures are also an option for exercise, socialisation, and reinforcing great behaviour in your pet! Park options include: Churchill Park, Waiatarua Reserve, Waiata Reserve, Highbrook Park, Michaels Avenue Reserve, Orakei Basin Reserve, Seaside Park, Lloyd Elsmore Park, and Point England Reserve. 1 dog = $42.50/hour, $25.00/half-hour

2 dogs = $65.00/hour, $45.00/half-hour

Puppy or Kitten Care:

Overnight Pet Sitting:

 

This service is priced by 24 hour increments.

 

Are you leaving for holiday or a business trip but do not want to board your dog? Cannot bring your pet with you? Do you have a special needs dog, a dog who prefers to be by themselves, or an anxious dog? I offer overnight pet sitting. Your dog stays at home, relaxed, and comfortable. We follow their schedule and you return to a calm, relaxed and peaceful house. This service is only offered to existing clients. $100.00 per evening
