Waggin Tails Pet Care was started 20+ years ago out of my deep love for dogs!  All of the dog walkers who work for Waggin Tails love working with dogs and love spending their days caring for dogs.  We all do this work because we truly love what we do and we will care for your puppy and dog the way that you do.  At Waggin Tails, we are a family of loving, kind, respectful folks who use positive reinforcement techniques with our animal companions.  Waggin Tails Pet Care is so much more than just a dog walk!  Waggin Tails Pet Care:  Trust.  Safety.  Reliability.  Family.

The care that Waggin Tails provides for our clients is SO much more than just a dog walk!  Each family that comes to Waggin Tails in Seattle for dog walking and puppy care has their own unique set of circumstances that creates their need for dog care.  As the owner, I truly care about each family and put great thought into how to create a unique, special care plan for their pup to make sure to meet their needs.  I do this process in a holistic way taking into consideration the well being of the family as a whole and how care for their furry family member will enhance the lives of those family members, especially their dog/puppy.

In Seattle, we deeply love our pet companions.  So, when our dogs are well cared for, it eases our stress and worry which helps the entire family dynamic.  Waggin Tails understands all of this and we take our role as dog walker very seriously as a result.  We care about your dog and about the well being of your whole family.

Waggin Tails: Safety = Experience and training

posted on: June 19, 2019

I observed a dog walker yesterday in the Green Lake neighborhood walking 4 dogs on leash.  She works for one of the larger dog walking companies who have a large number of walkers providing walks for doggie parents who contact them.  What I witnessed truly horrified me!  This walker was a young, female walker.  The dogs were NOT under her control at all.  The leashes were all tangled.  She was simply standing still in one spot with the dogs while the dogs jumped on top of each other trying to wrestle with each other.  It was a very dangerous situation for these dogs.  I truly felt concerned and yelled out to her, “This does not look safe.!”  She yelled back, “Mind your own business.”  I was shocked by her unprofessional behavior.  As I drove away, the dogs were still out of control and I’m sure did not enjoy a walk while in this walker’s care.

With Waggin Tails, your dogs are safe with us!  Our leash walkers are trained and as the business owner, I am available at all times to offer advice when something comes up that threatens the safety of our clients.  We walk dogs together that walk nicely together whether that is one, two or three dogs.  Three is our maximum because I believe strongly that walking more than three dogs at one time creates a safety hazard and the dogs do not enjoy the walk.  If a dog is very high energy and needs to be walked alone, we provide that walk.  If a dog enjoys walking with a couple of other dogs, then we will make that happen as well.

Safety is our priority over profits at all times!  With Waggin Tails, you get the same walker every walk.  It is someone you get to know and trust and you can count on that walker.  Dog walking should never resemble Uber where you press a button and a walker shows up, imo.  With Waggin Tails, we are a like a family and we know each other well.

When you are looking for a reliable, responsible, trustworthy dog walking company, choose Waggin Tails.  Waggin Tails:  Trust.  Reliability.  Safety.  Family.
