Is your dog perfectly happy with engaging one-on-one walks with familiar humans? Our fun-filled one-on-one outings are just the thing to tucker out your dog.
A DIFFERENT BREED OF DOG WALKER
It Takes Specialized Skills to Handle Multiple Dogs in a Group Setting. That's why Livia is trained and certified in dog behavior science, pack dynamics, and experienced in handling groups of dogs and common behavior issues. And nothing makes her happier than seeing a dog transform through exercise, socialization and positive training.
Livia Specializes in Socializing and Exercising Dogs with Friends. Most dog walkers don't have the skills to handle multiple dogs and common behavior issues safely. Livia instead specializes in socializing dogs and is experienced in handling misbehaving dogs, keeping dogs safe while at the same time having a great time with friends.
Balancing Safety and Fun. Livia wants your dog to have a blast with his friends and, at the same time, avoid the tragedy of a lost dog or a dog struck by a car, two all-too-common outcomes of off leash walks. That's why CiaoCiao's walks and adventures take place on leash. So you have the piece of mind that your dog will come home safe and sound every day.
Livia Welcomes Teaming up with Your Dog's Trainer. If you're working with a dog trainer, Livia is happy to team up with your trainer for faster progress, by reinforcing your dog's training plan while giving your dog the exercise he needs.
WONDERING ABOUT CIAOCIAO'S NAME?
'Ciao' is a common Italian way of saying both 'hello' and 'goodbye'. Originally hailing from Italy and Switzerland, Livia looked for a way to incorporate a bit of her native tongue into the name of her service. As each day begins with picking up her canine charges for a fun-filled excursion ('hello again!'), and ends with dropping them safe and tuckered out at home ('goodbye for now!'), CiaoCiao seemed the perfect fit.

“Ciao Ciao Pet Care takes care of my furry baby like it is her own child.

Charly is very happy and content and loved her week long overnight care while we we on vacation.
