We Promise You Professionalism
You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your beloved pet is being taken care of by individuals who are personally chosen and supervised by two people that are on a dedicated mission. We’ve had a life long commitment and dream in creating and maintaining a very high standard in pet care. Please read our Mission Statement.

We Do Not Pack Dog Walk !
Our walks are safe and comfortable. We don’t believe in walking large numbers of dogs at once. We walk two to four, mostly three dogs at a time, giving each dog personal attention.

We Get To Know Your Dogs
We become familiar with each dog’s personality and habits in order to maintain comfort, control and safety in any situation.

We Maintain Your Dog’s Routine
Whether dog sitting at our client’s homes or dog boarding at our place, we treat all dogs as our own, giving them extra love and paying close attention to their safety and comfort. We also understand that some dogs may feel anxious when separated from their family and normal surroundings. Therefore, we aim to follow their regular routine as closely as possible in order to make them feel comfortable and lessen their anxiety.

Hiring And Training Our Staff
When hiring our staff, we conduct thorough interviews and full background checks on all potential employees.
In addition, we only hire people who are willing to commit to working with us for at least one full year. Thus, maintaining long lasting relationships between our dog walkers and dog sitters and the dogs we care for.
Every new employee spends a minimum of four weeks training out in the field with an experienced staff member learning our Pet Care Procedures.

No Surprises
For everyone’s comfort, we aim to have the same person walk the same dogs on a regular basis which we are mostly able to do. However, this may not always be possible. Therefore, it is our practice that all three of our staff members and all dogs become familiar with each other.

We Make The Effort
It’s our policy to meet all potential clients and their dog(s) before starting to work together in order to get acquainted and go over all the necessary details pertaining to the care of their pet.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
