How it Works
Schedule a Meet & Greet
A manager will come to your home, meet your pet(s) and answer all your questions. An additional meet and greet with your dog walker is available on request.
Setting up dog walking and pet sitting is convenient with our mobile app. Just put in your request , we’ll approve your appointment and send you a confirmation.
Our Philadelphia dog walkers and pet sitters are friendly, professional and most of all, they LOVE animals. All walkers are insured, bonded and background checked.
Food and Water
Food and treats are always provided free of charge upon request. We always give your pet fresh water before leaving.
After every service, your pet sitter fills out a report card so you know exactly what we did together and that nothing was overlooked.
Love and Affection
When you’re not home, we make sure your pets get plenty of exercise, belly rubs, butt scratches and snuggles.
