South Carolina, Charleston
Introduction

I was a Licensed Massage Therapist for twelve years before taking a career shift to start Snaggle Foot Dog Walks & Pet Care in Charleston. I really look forward to caring for animals every day, and also helping out their owners!

Services List

Rates: Starting at $23.00/per dog walk

Have a schedule or situation that leaves your dog home alone too long? We provide our dog walking service for a variety of clients in an assortment of situations.

For example, we’ve worked with clients who:

  • Have an energetic or young dog that needs more exercise
  • Are physically unable to walk their dog, such as after an injury or while sick
  • Work long hours and have a dog that could use a mid-day break
  • Are trying to sell their home and need someone on-call who can occupy their dog while the house is being shown

Our Snaggle Foot Pet Care Specialists are more than happy to work out a visit schedule that meets your needs. We can come by any day of the week. Most of the time, we just need a few days’ notice in order to fit you into our schedule. We know how busy things can be and we try to be as accommodating as possible.

Typically, our dog walking service is provided mid-day, when dogs need to be let out the most. Each standard dog walking visit consists of a 20-30 minute walk or trip to a nearby park. Every visit comes with a water refresh, playtime, and a treat.

Rates: Starting at $23.00/visit (two pets)
Additional pets: Ask for price
Other requests (Medication, Aquariums, etc.) start at an additional $5.00

While you’re traveling, let Snaggle Foot come to your home to care for your pets as an alternative to kenneling or boarding. Because we know that some pets do better without the noise and confusion of a facility. So why not let us come to your home and care for your pets where you know that they’ll be happy and comfortable!

Our most popular pets are cats and dogs, but we’ve also provided pet sitting services for other household and exotic pets such as parrots, rabbits, caged rodents, and reptiles.

A typical pet sitting visit consists of:

  • Exercise or playtime with your pets
  • Feeding, water refresh, treats
  • Specialized one-on-one attention.
  • And of course, we will always make sure your home is left safe and secure and your pets are happy and healthy.

Our service offerings are beneficial to pets and pet owners alike! For instance:

  • Pets get to stay in their own, familiar environment. Your pets experience no additional stress when you travel.
  • Your pets maintain their regular feeding and exercise schedules, and they get to sleep in the comfort of their own beds.
  • You feel safe and secure knowing that we are watching over your home while you are traveling.
  • We can bring in the mail, alternate the lights, water your plants, and take care of other home maintenance issues.

Rates: Starting at $18.00/visit

We know that often times the dogs that need the most care are those who are new puppies. We began offering a puppy because we would continually receive requests from clients whose dogs didn’t necessarily need a full walk, but just a quick break outside during the day.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.

Unlike our traditional dog walking service, our puppy breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to get you dog outside for a quick break, water refresh and treat included.

And just like our dog walking service, your puppy will get the special care they deserve.

Rates: Starting at $80.00/night

Are your pets used to constant attention? We can definitely accommodate!

Our overnight sitting service allows us to “move-in” to give your pets the continual one-on-one attention that they are used to.

Inherent with the service is the peace of mind that your home is cared for and looked after by an insured professional.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • Have just gotten a new puppy and are working on housebreaking.
  • Have a dog who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may need to go outside more often.
  • Individuals who would like someone staying at their home at night while they are away.

Rates: Starting at $18.00/visit

We know that often times the pets that need the most care is those who are seniors. We began offering a senior services as we would continually receive requests from clients whose pets need special attention.

This service is ideal for clients who:

  • A little arthritic, have a hard time getting around.
  • Have a pet who is on a medication.
  • Are owners of a senior dog who may be having a difficult time holding it in.

The Senior breaks last only 15-20 minutes– just long enough to insure your senior pet gets the special care they deserve.

Rates: Call for custom price.

We offer a full line of customized services. Ask us how we can accommodate your needs. That’s why we offer customized services called “TLC” Services.

Our TLC services have extra pampering built right in, including:

  • Pet Taxi Service for those time your pet has appointments during working hours. Let us take your pet to his or her appointments, without you ever having to re-arrange your busy schedule.
  • Home checks while you’re away including bringing the mail and any packages, watering plants, adjusting the lights, bringing in trash cans, and giving your home a “lived in” look.
  • Extended pet visits allowing your pet to have more one-on-one time.
  • Dog field trips and extended walks and hikes.
  • Pet medicine administration.
  • And more!

Whatever your need, let us know and we can help!

Detailed Information

 

I served as my massage school’s administrator in Michigan before moving to Norway (just wanting a little change and lots of adventure), where I eventually met my husband, Arnt. Instead of settling back in Michigan, and since we are two warm-hearted pet lovers, we decided to move to Charleston for some warmer temps and Southern charm.

As a child, I tagged along with my parents as they frequently attended both dog and cat shows. This is when I learned to love and care for animals the most. Caring for pets has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I really enjoy our three energetic Mini Schnauzers; Odin, Zeus, and Loki.

I have cared for cats, dogs, birds, fish, hamsters, ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, and many others—I truly enjoy each animal’s unique personality; and my goal is to get them to relax and enjoy their time with me.

As a pet owner, I know first-hand the concerns and fears that pet owners often go through. Excellent and dependable pet care is essential to pet owners.

“I want to make sure every pet owner knows that their animals are, while their humans are gone, in the best possible hands, without any doubts or stress. My clients’ peace of mind and their pets’ well-being are my two primary goals during each and every visit.”

After arriving in the United States from Norway, I never imagined I would be a pet sitter or dog walker; let alone living in beautiful Charleston with beaches and picturesque views. Perfect for this amateur photographer!

I really enjoy my time with all of Snaggle Foot’s fur clients. Making sure they all get their exercise and much love and pampering is my goal. It is a little different than my former position in Norway as a mechanical engineer; however, same intent. Do the best job possible.

I have earned the nickname, “The Dog Whisperer,” as many pups seem to be very calm and relaxed when around me; which surprises some parents that have dogs with high anxiety. I’ve been told my gentle manner is calming and loving; which, makes the experience even more enjoyable for pets, and for the parents knowing their pets are happy and in good hands.
