I started walking dogs as a hobby after quitting my job at an international organization in Washington DC. I really wanted to spend more time outdoors, being in contact with my community and nature whenever possible.
My partner and I have had dogs all our lives, but as a result of our two current (and special) dogs, we have sought out and received countless hours of specialized training from dog behavioral experts and professional trainers. This has equipped us with the experience and knowledge to start this initiative.
We have comprehensive experience in providing your pup with personalized walks or home visits, but most importantly, we love dogs and we are committed to taking care of yours as if they were our own.
You and your pup will meet one of our walkers for an initial assessment. Then we will create a personalized schedule, to include pick-up/drop-off arrangements
You send us your vet’s contact info, vaccination records and emergency contact information.
Track your pup’s walks and home visits, receive photos, daily feedback and get featured on our Instagram profile!
Daily feedback with photo updates, GPS-tracking, water bowl refill, basic medication administration, bringing in packages, drying off and cleaning paws after rain or snow (towel provided by client)

We love dogs and want to help our clients keep their furry friends healthy and happy for a long time.

We believe that small actions contribute to fulfilling and maintaining the needs of our community. We are passionate about “walking-the-walk” when it comes to playing our part in the community and the environment.
Economic prosperity We pay high enough wages to our staff that allows them to maintain a normal standard of living. We also support small businesses in our neighborhood.
Cultural vitality We support the arts and culture in our community; we love to document and share street artwork and cultural events in the neighborhood on our Instagram profile.
Social Equity We provide equal opportunities in a healthy working environment and are active volunteers in the Human Rescue Alliance (HRA).
Environmental Sustainability We use eco-friendly bags. Our dog walkers reside in the neighborhoods they service. We try to minimize the use of cars by biking and of course walking. We have created the Safe Paws Project. At least once a week, we choose a public space or area in our neighborhood (sidewalks, tree boxes, bus stops/trash bins) to clean up, paying special attention to litter such as broken glass bottles that can injure your pup.
We give back! We donate a percentage of our profits to the Human Rescue Alliance (HRA).
