FAQ – Dog Walking

Q: What is your service area?

A: We service the greater Seattle area for dog walking, cat sitting and puppy training. This includes the following neighborhoods: Downtown, Pioneer Square, Belltown, Capitol Hill, First Hill, International District, Lake Union, Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Greenwood, Fremont, Wallingford, Maple Leaf, and more!

Q: Do you have an available dog walker?

A: Maybe! Send us the details and we will let you know if we have an appropriate caregiver on staff with room on their schedule. We keep a waiting list if we are unable to help immediately. At least two weeks’ notice is preferred for new clients and occasionally we can help with last-minute needs.

Q: Are you insured?

A: Yup! We are fully insured, licensed and bonded, and our employees are covered under our insurance.

Q: Can I speak to someone on the phone before booking?

A: Yes! Please contact us to set up a phone appointment.

Q: Will I have the same dog walker?

A: We do like to keep dogs with the same walker when possible. Dog walkers can get sick, have emergency car trouble, or go on vacation. We will notify you ASAP if we need to switch walkers and will give you the option of cancelling rather than substitution.

Q: What about keys?

A: We DO need a backup access plan** if you are traveling out of town. For daily dog walking, if something happens with the primary key or lockbox and we do not have another key on file, we will cancel the walk and notify you via text/email. Our preferred access methods are:

1. Digital code and a backup access plan** if the power or battery goes out.

2. Lockbox* on your property with a primary key set and a backup access plan** OR give us a backup key during the initial consultation to store in our office.

3. Key pick up carefully coordinated with the concierge/management office, kept for all the visits and then returned on the last visit. Note for us any hours they will not be available for key pass off. If extra time is spent waiting for the concierge/management staff this would subtract from the total time of your visit.

4. Provide two key copies at the initial consultation, one for your primary caregiver, and one for an alternate caregiver or a backup key set to store in the office. Any key exchanges afterward will incur an $8 handling fee.

*Little Furry Things can provide a lockbox for you to keep, ($30), or borrow ($15).

**Backup access plan = a close-by neighbor/concierge/management office/friend/family that will be in town while you are traveling, or permission for us to call a locksmith at your expense.

Q: Can you do two visits per day?

A: Yes, we often schedule two visits per day (late morning and late afternoon) for puppies, seniors and cats.

Q: Do you walk aggressive dogs?

A: Hmmm, what does aggressive look like? If your animal has a previous bite history, is extremely shy, under socialized or reactive we may not be able to service your family for regular dog walks right away.  However, we do provide day training and can help improve these issues. We do not visit with other neighborhood dogs when walking, and avoiding triggers/reactions is something that all of our walkers can do.

Q: What do I need to provide for my caregiver?

A: Any supplies we may need to adequately care for your pet including treats, toys, poop bags, leash, harness when appropriate, and a crate available for emergencies. Dogs should be wearing a pet ID tag on their collar or harness. Microchip is also preferred. No prong collars or choke chains. We do use treats on our walks to encourage good behavior.

Q: Does my pet need to be up-to-date on their vaccinations?

A: Yes, but we do not require proof since we are not visiting with other dogs. You may be asked to provide this upon request.
