The Pack Pals team offers a wide range of care services for dogs (and cats!) in Bethlehem, NY and its surrounding neighborhoods. All services include a report card with photos and a summary of our visit. Scheduling is easy with our app! Below, you can find a brief description of our most popular services.
Our mid-day group program consists of group walks and playdates in the Bethlehem area. These services are curated to fit your pup so that we always have a fun, safe, and enriching time together. We will pair your pup with friends who have compatible temperaments for a play group or with a other well paired pups for group walk and provide transportation to their activity of the day. Dogs are paired together based on compatibility alone. Group activities are 30-45 minutes in duration and while attending group services your pup will be out of the house with us for up to 1.5 hours- depending on how long our activity is and where your pup falls on our pickup and drop off route for the day. Group play happens in the private, fenced in, yards of our employees and in a few of our generous client's yards. Group walks take place in quiet neighborhoods in Delmar and Glenmont. All of our services occur year round through rain, snow, and shine- so long as the weather is safe. We take extra time to enjoy playtime or walks on comfortable days!
Walks with friends have many benefits for pups and can help them increase confidence, work on their leash manners, get some exercise, and experience appropriate social opportunities. Playing with friends has it's benefits too! Our pack experiences a lot of enrichment together, we build great bonds with one another and are always ready for a nap when we're done. We enjoy playing with bubbles together, making snow angels, splashing in dog pools, practicing our obedience, playing fetch, zooming around with friends, and taking breaks for belly rubs in the shade.
Our mid-day program is available Monday through Friday and falls between 10am-2pm. We require this timeframe to ensure that we have the flexibility it takes to pair your pup with the perfect friends! Your pup will be with us for a while and return home happy and ready to nap. To allow our pack to build great bonds and to keep our activities safe we require a recurring schedule of at least once weekly. The familiarity that our pups have with each other is crucial our to positive adventures together.
Safe, healthy, and highly curated social opportunities are what make up our mid-day program. This program is only available to highly social dogs that display appropriate behavior when interacting with all other dogs of any size, sex, or age. If a dog displays unsafe behavior while interacting with any other dog in group activities they will be immediately excused from group activities. Unsafe behavior is determined by our experienced staff and includes, but is not limited to, resource guarding behavior of any kind, humping/mounting/or showing excessive interest in other dog's genitalia, inability to read social cues, targeting or pestering another dog, excessive lunging on leash, not being respectful when playing with smaller friends, and inability to settle while walking with calm friends. Dogs must also be calmly and appropriately behaved in the car. Our vehicles are equipped with dog barriers and doggy seatbelts to create a calm and safe environment when traveling to our activities.
