ALOHA, CURRENTLY WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS OR FUTURE APPOINTMENTS FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2019. MAHALO FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
We LOVE our dogs and we know you love yours too! We understand that life takes you away from being home 24/7 and that can create anxiety and stress for both you and your dog. We are here when you need us to provide that peace of mind and take the worry away. Belly Rubs + Grubs will be sure to give your furry loved one the love and care when you can't be there.
Currently servicing areas between Kakaako and Hawaii Kai on Oahu which we offer the below services.
**All first-time clients require an Initial Client Consultation (Meet & Greet for Free).
MEET & GREET
For the Initial Meet & Greet, please plan for a minimum 1-week advance notice for scheduling a new service and allow up to 60-minutes for your initial in-home Meet & Greet. The purpose of this session is to ensure a clear understanding of client expectations, your pets needs and a successful delivery of services. We view both you and your pet as the client. Their happiness and safety of everyone is very important to us.
Feel guilty about leaving your dog along all-day? Our dog walking service allows your pup to get a mid-day break to get some fresh air, stretch his legs, expend some energy, get exercise, and have some affection. Belly Rubs + Grubs provides individualized walks (exception: same household) and will ensure that the route and pace are in line with your pet's preference. Mid-day dog walks tend to be the most frequent service requested between the hours of 11:00am to 3:00pm. Time slots are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. A typical dog walking visit will consist of:

DOG STROLL (We walk, they ride in a stroller)
Have a puppy who wants fresh air but can't walk outside yet? Or maybe a senior dog that enjoys the outdoors but unable to walk for longer periods. Similar to our Dog Walk service and geared towards senior dogs or puppies to allow them outdoor time but in the comfort of a stroller. You have a choice to use our stroller for a nominal fee which you inspect at the Meet & Greet or we can use yours. A typical dog stroll visit may consist of:
Have a date night or after work pau hana to go but feel guilty leaving your dog alone? Was he cooped up inside his crate all-day while you were at work? Have a dog that prefers affection and a mellow play time rather than walking for exercise? Don't feel guilty, we'll be there to relieve your dog and provide him the attention he needs. A typical pet sitting visit may consist of:
Time requested is continuous and inclusive of all services. (i.e. If a 30-minute visit is scheduled and feeding takes 15 minutes, there will be 15 minutes for play or walking.)
OVERNIGHT PET SITTING (Dogs, Cats, Birds)
While you're traveling, let Belly Rubs + Grubs come to your home to care for your pets as an alternative to boarding in kennels. Your pet will get to sleep in their own bed, maintain their feeding schedule, and best of all remain in the comfort of their home.
A typical pet visit may consist of:
Standard Overnight Pet Sitting (10-Hours): Your pets will have a companion in the evening and overnight. Optional add-on for two (2) - 30 minute daytime visits/walks at a discounted rate.
Extended Overnight Pet Sitting (12-Hours): Your pets will have a companion in the evening and overnight. Optional add-on for two (2) - 30 minute daytime visits/walks at a discounted rate.
On all visits, we provide a progress report and can send you a photo of your pet to your smart phone or email. We could even FaceTime or Skype with you if you'd like.
Please keep in mind we may have other pet sitting or dog walking rounds, but your home will be "home base". We will always include at least the minimum time booked.
There will be an additional payment for any service of $8 for the holidays (except for VIP Program Members):
Belly Rubs + Grubs will make every effort to accommodate specific time requests; however, due to the unpredictable nature of working with animals we cannot guarantee a time, to the minute, in the event a preceding client visit requires additional time.

We require a valid credit card at the time you submit your requested booking but not full payment*. You will see a $1 charge on your card (uncaptured).

*Full payment will be required for Monthly VIP Packages at time of selection and expire 30 days after purchase has been made.
We will contact you within 24-hours of receiving your requested service. Requesting a service online does not guarantee the service will be rendered until we've confirmed with you.
