Connecticut, New Haven

Thank you for your interest in becoming a new client of Snaggle Foot. We’re excited to meet you!

In order to ensure your pet is properly cared for, and that we are compatible, we’ll schedule a free initial meet and greet session. This in-person consultation allows us to meet you and your pet, learn the particulars of caring for your pet, and helps ensure you and your pet will be happy with our service. We require a minimum 24-hour notice to set up this initial consultation. And once complete, we can provide the service you and your pet want, at any time.

Please provide us with some basic information so we can prepare for our consultation. We understand you may have additional needs other than what is listed or indicated here. We’ll happily discuss your individual needs during our consultation.

Once we receive this information, a local Snaggle Foot Team Member will be in touch during our normal business hours, 8 AM – 5 PM local time.

It’s a lot of work running your own business, but the joy I get from walking dogs and caring for pets makes all the work so well worth it!

Services List

Rates: Starting at $20.00/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.

Short walk: $20
30-minute walk: $24
60-minute walk: $32

Holiday rates: The following holidays will have a 25% surcharge added … New Year’s (12/31 & 1/1), Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thurs & Fri for Thanksgiving, and Dec 24 & Dec 25 for Christmas.

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

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-minute walk or trip to a nearby park. Every visit comes with a water refresh, playtime, and a treat.


Regular customers, be sure to ask us about our loyalty program and get every 10th visit FREE!

Rates: Starting at $18.00/visit

Additional pets: No Charge
Other requests (Medication, Aquariums, etc.): No Charge

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 $15.00/visit

New puppies need a lot of care and TLC. We began offering a puppy break service because we received requests from many 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 $45.00/night with check-ins $15.00/visit.

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 $15.00/visit

Our older pets often need extra attention during the day. We began offering senior pet services because we would get many requests from clients whose pets need special attention.

This service is ideal for pets who are:

  • A little arthritic or have a hard time getting around.
  • On medication.
  • Having issues with incontinence.

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

My favorite thing is seeing how happy the pets are when we show up. We are the treat they look forward to when they are home alone and waiting for their parents to get back.

I take a lot of pride in my business and I make sure that the people who work with me share my love of animals. They are trained professionals and do an outstanding job.

New England winters are challenging, but they are always ready to head out in the snow and ice to make sure their charges are safe.

I feel very privileged to care for others’ fur babies!










I’m working at Snaggle Foot to get more experience with many different types of pets. I have had the opportunity to work with dogs, cats, hedgehogs, chickens, rabbits and goats!

I love learning by taking care of different animals, animals with specific food and medicine needs, and animals with a multitude of temperaments.

This has taught me how to approach situations in a clear, calm, and careful fashion.

I have three cats and a dog of my own. I’ve had rats, a hamster, and a tortoise in the past. I love pets!

I’m certified in










I love Connecticut weather year-round, and taking advantage of it with my furry clients adds to the enjoyment. Knowing I am counted on and trusted by their parents is very rewarding.

I live near the beach, and Irving, my three-legged rescue Bichon mix, keeps me busy and smiling. My seven nieces and nephews do, too.

I was a vet tech for 23 years, and I’m enjoying this continued contact with pets very much.

I’m certified in










I’m working at Snaggle Foot because I’ve always loved animals and couldn’t imagine not working with them.

After a few years of working at both a pet store and as an assistant vet tech, Snaggle Foot allows me to work with animals more regularly, so I can build a lasting relationship with them.

Each animal I’ve met through this company has brought me so much joy and I go to work every day excited.

I have a Cane Corso Mastiff of my own, as well as a few family dogs, snakes, lizards, and guinea pigs.
