Love + Care When You're Not There

Our Dedicated Team of Caregivers

You only want the best for your pet – so do we!

We hire reliable dog walkers and pet sitters who demonstrate dedication to each pet’s individual needs.  All our team members are thoroughly screened to ensure they are responsible, mature, and reliable.  Our dog walkers and pet sitters are team players that work together to provide high-quality, consistent care for your pet!  Quality pet care is constant pet care.

To retain high-quality caregivers, we cultivate long-term relationships with our clients.  Since professional caregivers need a consistent schedule, we cannot provide on-demand dog walks.  For our weekly dog walking clients, we do not charge for emergency or last-minute walks.

Meet Beatrice

The PPCC Mascot + Service Dog

Beatrice started obedience training early in life, at just eight weeks old.  At four months, Sarah enrolled Bea in Philly Unleashed’s Star Puppy Program for socialization and obedience work.  She graduated, then moved into their obedience level I and II classes.

This sweet girl continued her training with master dog trainer and retired canine officer Perry Parks at ACDT Academy in Medford, NJ.  Thanks to Major’s Miracle Network and ACDT, Beatrice is now a service dog!
