FAQ

Is Puppy Love licensed, bonded and insured?

Yes, we are fully insured and bonded. We are also a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. No license is required in Washington DC for this type of business.

Who are Puppy Love’s walkers?

Our pet sitters have various backgrounds and interests, though they all have one thing in common: their love of animals. They range from graduate students who take evening classes, to freelance writers and musicians. All of our walkers have either worked for a dog care or cat sitting service in the past, or are pet owners who understand the responsibility of caring for a pet. The average age of our walkers is 27, with none being under 23 years of age.

How many pets do the walkers walk at one time and will I have the same walker each visit?

Each dog walker and cat sitter cares for pets in a specific neighborhood, and we only provide individual walks and visits. We never walk dogs in a pack. Walkers have consistent schedules which allow for a routine to be developed and a strong bond to be created between the walker and pet being cared for.

How long is each visit?

Visits are typically between 20 – 30 minutes.

Can I schedule visits for a specific time of day?

Visits are scheduled with in a two hour window and that two hour window can be determined by you.  The earliest window we provide is between 9-11am and the latest is between 4-6pm. Please note that we do everything in our power to stick to the designated windows, but sometimes life interferes and delays may occur.  Traffic delays and detours, snow and ice during winter, and unexpected pet needs requiring immediate (and sometimes timely) attention, are just a few of the wrenches that can knock us off course.  Thank you in advance for your patience during these situations.
