The Mutt Runners


About Us

The Mutt Runners is a dog running service that primarily focuses on walking/running dogs that are overweight, have behavior issues and/or don’t get enough exercise due to their owner’s work schedule or physical limitations.

The initial session will be an evaluation walk/run. The Mutt Runner and Mutt Master will meet with the client and their dog. The dog’s fitness level will be assessed (endurance, condition of paw pads, etc) to create a custom exercise routine designed to increase the dog's overall well-being.

Mutt Runners are insured and certified by the Red Cross to provide First Aid to dogs. They can administer medications, recognize and respond to an emergency, perform CPR/first aid, treat common problems, and carry a pet first aid kit.

Mutt Runners run with a cell phone in case of emergency and use the “Nike+ Running” App.
The App measures distance, pace, overall time and allows runners to keep notes on the dog’s performance. Clients will be able to review their dog’s workout and keep track of their progress.

Mutt Patrols - Mutt Runners also act as a neighborhood watch. They report suspicious behavior, lost children and stray/lost animals to local authorities.

Mutt Sitting will also be offered for those that are going out of town and want a Mutt Runner to visit their home 3 times a day to feed, play, exercise and love their dogs.

The Mutt Mansion is a cage-less, doggie-daycare located in Hampton, VA. The pups have toys, beds and access to a spacious yard. The yard has an obstacle/agility course and a mini pool. Overnight boarding is also available.

The Mutt Mansion is a great option that provides hours of exercise, socialization training and behavior modification (Mutt Manners).

Mutt Manners are taught by the Mutt Master (Steve). Simply provide a description of the undesired behavior (barking at doorbell, jumping on people, jumping on sofa, food aggression, pulling on leash, etc) and once your dog and Steve develop a relationship based on trust and respect, he will begin to correct and erase the undesired behavior. Then he will reprogram your pup’s brain with the appropriate behavior. He'll also teach you how to control your pup's excessive excitement and continue the behavior modification process in your home. You too, will become a Mutt Master.

The Mutt Master (Steve) is a former Army Military Police Detective with 7 years of law enforcement experience. He has been working with dogs that have behavior issues & bad habits for over 9 years. Using exercise and socialization techniques, Steve rehabilitates dogs that are excessively shy/nervous or have aggression issues.
