A certified dog walker provides the best possible care for your dog on a walk. Far more than just someone to walk your dog, a certified dog walker is an experienced professional who is fully trained to walk dogs properly on and off leash; has studied dog body language and behavior; and knows how to recognize when dog aggression from another dog may occur and how to prevent it (or how to handle it should it occur). Ed, the Owner of Loving Pet Care, is the only certified dog walker in our area. For more information on dog walking, please check out "Tips to Find a Dog Walker" atDogWalker.com.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of pets do you provide care for?
We provide care for dogs, cats, birds, fish and rabbits as well as other domestic pets.
Do you board pets?
We believe a pet is best cared for in their own home, so we provide pet sitting services in your home where your pet feels most secure.
Why use a professional pet sitter?
Different from a family member, neighbor or friend who may be willing to care for your pet when they have a spare moment, professional pet sitters are trained and experienced in working with pets in all types of situations. Ed,
the Owner of Loving Pet Care, is a professional pet sitter who dedicates his time to serving you and your pet and is experienced in providing quality pet care. He is also trained in Pet First Aid. For more information on pet sitting, we recommend you read "Choosing a Pet Sitter" at: www.humanesociety.org.
Do you provide overnight pet sitting?
Yes. Overnight pet sitting is normally 9 hours or more of time spent at your home with your pet. We minimally require one additional visit per day, and usually recommend two additional visits to make sure your pet receives the time they need while you are away. While at your home, we will provide it with a "lived-in" look and make sure your mail and newspapers are brought in each day. We can also water indoor plants for you as well. Each overnight situation is unique, so do contact us and tell us what your needs are and we will do everything we can do to work with you.
What are your rates?
Our rates are set based on your specific needs and the care requirements of your pet, thus we don't have a "one-price-fits-all" policy, but determine pricing based on your individual situation. Please contact us for a quote.
