Service Area / Rates

From daily walks to potty breaks, to extended care during travel times, we individually personalize our visits to meet your unique needs, and the needs of your pets. During each visit, we strive to maintain your pet's normal routine and schedule as closely as possible. Our goal is to earn trust and build personal relationships with your pets. Our priority is to give your pets as much love and attention as you would..

Rates based on one pet. Additional charge may apply for more than one pet in same household.

Walk Me

"Walk Me" visits give your dogs the exercise and attention they need and crave -- and helps to prevent isolation and boredom! Long workdays, hectic schedules, evening activities and physical limitations can make it impossible for you to accompany your pet on his or her daily walk. A dog is happier and healthier when exercised daily.

Each visit is approx. 25-30 minutes in length and includes a walk or backyard play if desired, and fresh water and treats if requested.

Rates start at $19.00 per visit

Service Area

Serving the Twin Cities west metro, including Minnetonka, Hopkins, Wayzata, Southern Plymouth and surrounding areas.

Other Services

We also offer other services to help make life with your pets easier:

  • For those dogs who do well in boarding facilities, save yourself the time of transporting them, and possibly the extra overnight should you arrive home after closing. We can pick them up at your home, bring them to the facility, and then have them back at your home waiting for you when you get back!

  • We can shuttle your pet(s) to the groomer and return them home looking and smelling great!

Take Care of Me

When you must be away from home for a business trip, family vacation or other reason, finding suitable care for your pets can be a challenge. Pets can be stressed by changes in their routine, feeding schedule, sleeping arrangements,etc. especially when placed in unfamiliar surroundings. We will care for your pets in the comfort and safety of their own home so that they can feel more relaxed while you are away. Homecare is also part of each service, including security check; bringing in mail, papers, and packages; bringing garbage and recycling to and from the curb; alternating window coverings and lights; and watering houseplants.

Each visit is approx. 20-30 minutes in length and includes play, exercise, food, treats and fresh water, litter box and cage cleaning as needed, medications as required, and lots of personal attention so your pets feel safe and loved while you are away. Extended visits available upon request.

Rates start at $19.00 per visit

What is the First Step?

The first step is to contact Leashes & Litterboxes for a short phone interview to determine if our services would be a good fit for you and your pets. We would then schedule a complimentary, in-home "Meet and Green" visit to meet you and your pets. During this visit, we will ask many questions in order to fully understand your pets' routines, health history, and any unique needs your pet may have. In order to provide the best care in your absence, this meeting is required prior to accepting any assignment.

This meeting typically lasts about 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of pets and services requested. We prefer not to rush through this visit, since it's important that your pets (and you!) have ample time to get acquainted with us, and feel comfortable with us. We will also answer any questions you have about our services.

Most importantly, this visit will allow your pets to get to know us and become familiar with us so they feel safe during our visits while you are away from home. By the end of this visit, we are confident that you will feel comfortable knowing that your pets, and your home, will be secure and well cared for in your absence.
