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, 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 give you the option of canceling rather than substitution.

Q: What about keys?

A: Ideally you can provide a digital code or lockbox on site. If not available we need to keep two copies of a key on file for our regular clients, please have them ready at the initial consultation to avoid extra trips.

Q: I can’t get two copies? Now what?

A: We can deal with one copy and a SOLID back up plan, meaning someone who can give us access to your pets to care for them, at our convenience. This may be a landlord, friend, family, neighbor who has a backup key. They must be in town while you are traveling and available to help in an emergency.

Q: Can you do two visits per day?

A: Yes, we often schedule two visits per day for puppies and older pets, in the late morning and late afternoon, and this is typical for 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, we do not require proof since we are not visiting with other dogs, you may be asked to provide this upon request.
