Dog walking/Pet Sitting & Errands


Girl Friday ACK has been offering dog walking services to Nantucket since 2014. We offer private walks, and also small group hikes. Our commitment is to your pup and their specific needs. We understand that dogs are individuals and some just prefer one on one time, while others may benefit from playing with well-matched pups.

Private training walks are available after an initial private coaching session and are an ideal way to complement your training program. Otherwise, we are happy to schedule regular walking appointments or, once we get to know you at a complimentary Meet & Greet, to help you with occasional walking. We know how unpredictable our weather can be and what a relief it is to know that you always have someone to call if you get delayed off island!


Girl Friday ACK customizes all pet care to the individual pet but our walking services include a potty break, brain games, any meals and of course copious amounts of tender loving care.Private off leash hikes and small group outings are available, but only where this is appropriate. All off leash services are subject to evaluation of a dog’s disposition and recall. Our group hikes are kept intentionally small so they can be closely managed. Dogs are carefully matched, and play styles must be compatible. One bad experience can last a dog’s lifetime.

Puppy play dates can be arranged and are always held in a secure but enriching environment.



While looking after your pup, we also believe in creating a relationship with you. We understand that it takes trust to allow someone into your home and to take care of your beloved pet. We want you to know that you can ask us to help in other ways too.

We’re happy to help get Fido to or from the groomer, or to pick up/drop off Fluffy at boarding or day care. And if you need to go off-island for a few days, then why not keep pup on his/her regular schedule and comfortable at-home? We offer pet-sitting visits multiple times a day which can be an ideal solution if you have other companion animals at home. We love looking after your kitties, fish, rabbits and even your chickens too!

Because our services are so individualized please contact us to discuss pricing.
