Visit N' Play
Want your dog(s) to have some fun and have a potty break while you are away? Then a Visit N' Play from our experienced and trained pet service professionals is what you need!
We will arrive at your home for a 20-minute visit in which we will play with your dog(s) in the backyard or in-house (pending weather.) Once the visit is complete you will receive a detailed summary of the playtime in your Doggy Detail journal.
By request, the following tasks may also be completed during the visit as well (at no additional cost):
- Wipe dog paws after playtime (towels provided by customer)
- Fill-up food and water bowl
- Administer any oral medication
- Receive notification of any potential health concerns
- Bring any packages/newspapers in by front door
We Play With Your Pet While You’re Away
We all wish we could spend 24/7 with our dogs, but we know that isn’t always the case. Our lives are busy and we sometimes have to spend long periods of time away from the house. All the while your favorite friend is sitting at home waiting for you to get back.
That’s why at Doggy Detail we offer Visit N Play services so we can keep your pet happy and entertained while you’re away from the home. This of course also keeps them from doing anything bad like tearing up the house, going to the bathroom inside, or trying to get out of the house.
We’ll come hang out with your pal and keep them entertained while you’re away!

Why Doggy Playtime is So Important
Your pup requires a lot of care and love and one of the easiest and most fun ways of caring for your pet is by providing ample amounts of playtime. This playtime greatly helps your dog’s mental and physical health. Here are some ways that playtime may enhance your dog’s life
How Doggy Playtime Affects Attachment
One of the many benefits of doggy playtime is that it allows you and your dog to bond together. Some dogs show their excitement for this activity by bringing their owners their favorite toy or ball to signal they want to play and spend time together. For those who have multiple dogs this is also an excellent time for the dogs to learn how to bond with each other as well as you.
How Doggy Playtime Affects Exercise
Dogs need to receive lots of exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of the great benefits of playtime is that it is exercise in disguise. Your dog may be so excited to run and chase after a ball or frisbee that they don’t even realize they are getting more exercise than the average walk.
How Doggy Playtime Affects Training
Doggy Playtime is a great way to reinforce and improve the current skills your dog possesses. “Fetch”, “Sit”, “Drop”, and “Come Here” are all commands that can easily be used during your playtime activities and therefore you can use treats as a reward for obeying these commands during your time outside.
How Doggy Playtime Affects Mental Stimulation
Doggy Playtime gives your dog an opportunity to break away from the boredom of the day. By supplying a much-needed break so your dog can remain happy and interested instead of letting the boredom get the better of them which may lead to them getting into to trouble. By changing up the activities and even who they are playing with will give your dog some mental stimulation.
How Doggy Playtime Affects Behavior
When your dog is home alone all day without a break, they can get bored. Boredom often leads to destructive behavior like ripping up clothes, chewing on shoes, and ruining furniture. By giving your dog an opportunity to release some of that pent-up energy in a productive manner you are ensuring your home stays safe as well as providing some excellent playtime with you or a hired pet professional.
We want to meet your pet, because we just love pets here. Let us come play with your pet so we can make a new friend. Allow your pet the opportunity go out and get some exercise when you’re a little too busy with work.
If you want to know more about our services then feel free to give us a call at 847-212-5616.
Dogs need exercise just as much as we do. Our pals just want to get out, go run around, wrestle, and have a good time doing it. Unfortunately, as much as we love our four legged friends, not everyone is able to find the time during the day to make sure their dog has time to play.
We live busy lives. We work, have social obligations, and are generally busy most of the time. Some of us even have to travel frequently. It can be difficult to own a dog and give it the proper attention they so lovingly deserve when our time has to be spread out to so many different places.
Do not let yourself feel guilty over this. Your dog will get the playtime it deserves when you hire those of us at doggy detail to come play with them. Our team of dog lovers are always available to come play with your dog. Whether it’s for a single week while you’re on vacation or every day while you’re at work. We will gladly come give your dog some much wanted exercise while you are off working hard to afford the toys they so clearly need.
At doggy detail, we have worked effortlessly to assemble a team that wants nothing more than to play with your furry friends. We’re all dog lovers here and that means we’re all ready to play with your dog.
No need to get anxious on if your dog is okay by themselves. They have someone they can play with who was anxious to meet them in the first place. Some of our favorite ways to keep a dog entertained is:
Just letting them run around
Play with your other dogs
Some dogs really enjoy playing with other dogs and that may be why some of you have two of them, but they don’t always have the space to interact when they’re inside. So while you’re at work we can release them and let them get to have some fun together outside.
This will also tire your dogs out so that they can spend the rest of the day resting while you are at work. Then, once you’re home, they can get just as excited as they were before that you’re finally home.
