How did you get started in this business?

The Peaks Pet Nanny was established in 2004 when Gina & Patric experienced the stress of leaving their beloved Golden Retriever, Duncan, home alone while working very long hours for Corporate America.

As they spent their time attending late meetings and inching along Rt. 80’s daily traffic jams, Duncan waited patiently for his owners to return home and provide the care and exercise he needed.

When high-quality pet care for their beloved “fur child” was nowhere to be found, The Peaks Pet Nanny was born.

What types of customers have you worked with?

We work primarily with dog and cat parents. We have also cared for fish, chickens, parrots, bearded dragons, hedgehogs, chinchillas, bunnies, ferrets, rats, a sugar glider, and even a pet lobster named "Snappy"!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

What To Ask A Potential Dog Walker

Make a list of questions, and be sure your potential dog walker can answer those questions to your satisfaction. Examples can be: How long has your company been in business? How is dog walking scheduling handled? How is coverage arranged for my dog walking and dog sitting visits? What happens if my dog walker has an emergency? Will a backup pet sitter take care of my pets? What payment forms do you accept, and how is payment handled? Does the pet sitting company have a dog walking app? How much pet care experience do you have? What services are included during my dog walking visits? Do you have dog training experience? Are dogs from different households walked together or taken to a dog park? And if your pet has special needs, be sure to ask about experience with separation anxiety, fears, potential aggressiveness, or administering medications.

How To Choose The Right Dog Walker

Finally, and maybe most importantly, meet the potential dog walkers or pet sitters ahead of time! Any reputable dog walker should include a free in-home consultation to become acquainted and learn your pet’s care, personality and routine. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

List of Questions

Where is the dog food located? What kind of leash or harness is used during dog walking? Where does your dog like to walk, or perhaps playtime in the yard is preferred. See how they interact with your pets and with you! If all of your “reputable dog walker” boxes are checked, and the professional dog walker seems genuinely happy to be working with you and meeting your dogs, chances are you’ve found a good fit!
