Pet Peeps helped me out when I was in a bind and my arrangements for pet care over the holidays fell through. I definitely appreciated the flexibility to work with me to make sure my furbabies had care while I was out of town.

Gus and his team are great! They stepped up and helped us out in with some out of town guests, going above and beyond! The peace of mind knowing that our furry guest was taken care of was priceless.

My wife and I have been using Pet Peeps for a little over 4 years. Our life situation has changed multiple times, sometimes necessitating 2 walks a day, 1 walk a day, or just sporadic ones now that I work from home. We had their month-to-month option for one walk a day for about 3 years straight. But Pet Peeps was always there for us, dealing with emergency changes in our schedule and always providing quality walkers that seemed to care for our pups. The walkers often can sometimes offer fresh viewpoints on problems you might be having with your dogs, so I try and chat with the walkers from time to time. With that said, the specific individual walkers will change over time but that’s to be expected over a multi-year period. Their rates are competitive. Overall, an excellent experience. More...

My name is Zooey and I am a 13 year old Puggle. I have asked my person to write this note recommending Pet Peeps to take care of your beloved pets.Gus was my first dog walker when I was a puppy. I love him so much. He took me to my first Pride parade. We had sooo much fun together (we still do). He is reliable, responsible and my person said he is reasonable in price. Gus mostly manages these days but we still use Pet Peeps for my walks. My walker and I enjoy each other’s company as we walk around my neighborhood.My human and I strongly recommend Pet Peeps. Woof!

They took great care of our two boxers.. who were a handful on their walks! Our walker was very reliable, and the girls loved him. He was sure to let us know if there was anything we needed to know (bad belly, short walk because of heat, etc). Love Pet Peeps! More...

Fantastic service. So happy to leave my cat in the comfort of her own home where instead of boarding her at the vet where she’s left nervous in a cage. Now we can both relax while I’m out of town! And the management is thorough and respectful towards the pets as well as property! Excellent company definitely worth 5 stars! More...

I've used Pet Peeps for both regular daily service and for last minute walks/feedings. The owner is very responsive and my dog with special needs has loved all of his walkers!

I moved to DC in July 2018 and was referred to Gus and Pet Peeps by a friend. My senior dog was a bit stressed out about the move and Gus and his team really were a big part of us successfully settling in to our new home and routine. They are responsive and professional and clearly love the fur babies they help take care of. I truly appreciate Gus and Eddie and would recommend them to anyone with a spoiled pup. More...

I used Gus and his team (Eddie!) to walk my senior dog after moving to DC in summer 2018. I was referred by a friend who is also one of their long time customers. They take great care of your pet and are responsive and communicative. I give them a lot of credit for helping us settle in to our new home and routine. It's nice to know you don't have to worry about your fur baby when you're working hard to maintain their little dog mansion to live in. Thank you Gus and team! More...

I've been using Pet Peeps for a few years now, and they are far and away the best pet sitting service I've had. It's a great comfort to know that my very senior cat is well cared for. Their communication is great, their sitters spend time with my cat to make sure he gets some attention, the litter box is managed...everything is expert. Mavid looked after my cat on my latest trip, and I couldn't be more pleased with her service. Gus, the owner, is more than willing to step up for his staff, and pitched in with visits, too. I'll never use another service, and can't recommend them highly enough. More...

I have been a client of Pet Peeps for years.  I well remember Gus coming to interview me and my cat, Limoges, before my first pet sitting experience years ago.   As an attorney myself, I appreciated the scrutiny to make sure that my habits would fit in with Pet Peeps.   For years I went back and forth to medical appointments in New York or to my home in Florida secure in the knowledge that my cat was being well cared-for.   In more recent visits, I have received regular emails and even pictures of my pet in her happy home.   I highly recommend Pet Peeps.

Pet Peeps is great! We've used them for years, and their level of attention and care has only improved with time. In particular, Gus and his sitters went above and beyond recently when our plumbing malfunctioned, flooding our house while we were away. The sitter and Gus got the water turned off and did their best to mop up water, and helped letting in the remediation company. They also continued to come to everyday to feed our two very scared cats, who had hidden themselves during the flood and the work by the remediation crew. Gus kept us informed multiple times a day and followed up afterwards. We are deeply thankful they were there to help in our home disaster. More...

We've been using Pet Peeps for over a year, and now we can never use another dog walking service, because our dog Cliff (and my husband and I) have become too attached our walker, Dennis! He's both walked our dog, and boarded him. Our dog is a bit of a problem child (100 lbs and doesn't get along with other dogs), but Dennis and Pet Peeps have always come through with a walk for him. Normally Cliff gets distressed about being boarded, but when he stayed with Dennis while we were on vacation, he didn't seem ready to come home! I especially love seeing the notes from his walk, or pics from when he's boarded - our dog is a member of our family, so its great to be able to see how well he's taken care of when we're gone!

Pet Peeps is the best! We've been using them for years, and our kitties just love Dennis. He always sends texts and pictures to let us know how they are doing. On our last trip, there was a gas leak in our apartment and they had to tear down a wall! Dennis went over and above to make sure Jack and Bobbie were ok. He made extra visits and although we were only one day from home, we felt comfortable knowing he was there. A huge thank you to Dennis and Pet Peeps! More...

Excellent service, good people, and a company that cares about your pets. I've used them a bunch for my dog when I travel, and I gotten updates via text or email from my pet sitter about how Shorty is doing. I recommend them without any qualms. More...

LOVE Pet Peeps. Dennis, my walker is fabulous with my dog and she loves him. He always shows up, even when he is sick and knows just what she needs. I wouldn't use any other walker!

Pet Peeps took wonderful care of my little dog, Carlos, during our last two years in Washington DC. They were reliable, communicative, professional, and most of all Carlos loved his visits and walks with them. If you need dog walking in DC, call Gus at Pet Peeps. More...

I've treated my cats to the dedicated care of Pet Peeps for several years; the most recent kudos go to Alisa. She takes extra care to keep us apprised of how our furry little dudes are doing, and clearly cares about her work. I had been impressed with Gus when I first met him in 2009, and it's clear that he has added excellent people to his team! More...

Pet Peeps has been walking my dog for the last five or six years and their service and commitment is consistently excellent. I know that Percy, my dog, is in great hands with Eddy, his walker, who always demonstrates his care and affection. Rachelle, in the office, is also terrific and does a great job managing schedules.

We've been using this service for years. They are fantastic, affordable, flexible and great with our older big dog. I also love that they are a local business and much more reliable than some of the big apps. I've been home while they have interacted with my dog so I know they really truly love animals and always leave her water bowl full and give her lots of love and attention. We've also used them when we've gone out of town and our dog was very well cared for! If you're looking for a daily walker who you can count on, I would not hesitate to call Pet Peeps. More...

I used PetPeeps from 2014 until 2017 when I left the DC area. Not only were the services delivered consistent, timely, and punctual, I continually left additional tips and none of the sitters would take them! I always received text messages letting me know my cats were doing alright - along with pictures, often - and it was such a relief that when I was going out of town, my fur babies would be well taken care of. I also must mention two more things: 1. Sometimes I had last minute requests and petpeeps ALWAYS came through in those emergencies. I will be forever grateful to Gus and his team for this! 2. Gus is fantastic! He meets with you first to know the layout of your house and to get to know your animals. His company is truly TOP DOG! (or shall I say, the cat's meow ). Thank you again for three years of top notching service. if ever I return to DC, I will become a petpeeps customer again!! More...

No matter what length my trip away may be, Pet Peeps and Gus ("top dog") are responsive to the needs of my cat while I'm away. Sitters send pictures and videos letting me know that my baby is doing fine and getting attention. I am less anxious knowing I can count on Pet Peeps. More...

Rascal loves Gus!My attention-starved (just ask him), lovey-dovey cat hates being alone when I'm gone and I worry about him. Pet Peeps sitters send me pictures and videos letting me know that he's doing just fine without me.It's great that I can schedule on short notice and get someone who'll spend quality time with my baby.

Gus and his team at Pet Peeps took wonderful care of my dog Carlos when we lived in Washington DC. Carlos was a puppy and I was working fairly long hours and wanted him to have plenty of reliable, friendly and competent attention during the day. Pet Peeps provided that. I highly recommend their pet exercising service. More...

I've used Pet Peeps for years now. Recently, a worker at my house let my dog out while I was at work. She was running around the neighborhood when a Pet Peeps dog walker--in the area for another dog--recognized her (he's walked her before). He called Gus, Pet Peeps proprietor, who called me to let me know. I was about to rush back home when I got another call: the Pet Peeps dog walker had captured her (she loves all her dog walkers, so I'm not surprised she was happy to go with him) and delivered her safely home. Pet Peeps went above and beyond duty to keep my dog safe. I'm so grateful! More...

Having lived in Washington, DC for the last several years and just moved to Miami, where I have yet to find a comprehensive pet care service like this one, I really miss PetPeeps! My two cats are pretty easy to care for, but I know how much I valued being able to call just one company for a variety of tasks- from day-to-day visits to refresh food and water while I'm travelling, to arranging for actual company and quality time for my pets, even overnight stays? The peace of mind has been great. I'm sure that if your pet has greater needs (like dogs who need to be walked often, etc.) PetPeeps can handle it. I used PetPeeps for holiday travel, and despite being a sort of last-minute add-on, they were able to work me into the schedule and I can't say that I experienced the slightest hiccup. We had our initial interview to get to know our pets and our house within 48 hours of booking our sitter, and it was smooth sailing from there.I loved the preliminary visit I had with Gus- it really seemed like he thought of everything!! I was surprised by the thoroughness of his questions to prepare his sitter- right down to where to leave my mail and how to take out the trash! The attention to detail really made me feel better about things (especially because my two very similar looking cats have very different dietary needs and Gus made really careful notes about who needs what and when- so important).When my sitter came, I received photo texts and updates to confirm that my little guys were alive and well (even with cute holiday details incorporated since this was over Thanksgiving). I found my sitter's correspondence to be timely, thorough, and professional, even leaving a personal note for us to find upon our return.All in all, no complaints... here's hoping I find something comparable in Miami soon!

So great. They are affordable and always do a great job. Also, when I had a death in the family they were extremely understanding about my cancellation and gave me a full refund. It is nice to not have to worry about a company taking advantage of you. Use them! More...

I've used Pet Peeps to walk my dog for the past three years, even after moving to a different neighborhood in DC. They've always been great with communication and my dog has absolutely loved all of the walkers, who are extremely friendly and great with dogs. It's hard to find walkers that are dependable and that you can trust, so I've been thrilled with Pet Peeps. I'm moving to a new place nearby and will make sure to keep using their service. More...

They helped me out at the very last minute when a friend couldn't watch our cat…and it was for a 9 day trip!! I can't say enough great things about them. Super professional, even sent photos every day of our cat…we totally looked forward to that as one of the highlights of the day, even on vacation!Sadly, we moved out of their service area to Silver Spring, BUT they gave us a good recommendation for another similar business in the area.

I have had a great experience with Pet Peeps! I have used Pet Peeps the past few years for pet visits for my two cats whenever I go out of town.  The cats were well taken care of and the litter box was kept clean. I requested that the sitter text message me when they would stop by and they would always do so and sometimes send photos of the cats! Gus is especially attentive - he responds to my requests and inquiries promptly and professionally. More...

Love this place!!! I used them for dog walking services numerous times and they are awesome! The dog walkers always texted me updates and photos! Andy dog was always happy when I came home and was not aggravated or upset at all by the experience. The people who walk the dogs are wonderful dog loving people and the owners/managers of Pet Peeps are very much involved and very thorough. 5 stars!!! More...

This is my first time using Pet Peeps and I had a really great, positive experience. I was in a last-minute jam and needed to walk a friend's dog, who I was dogsitting. I called several dog walkers around the DC area and I received no response. Gus from Pet Peeps called me back promptly and managed to fit in a walk. He was so flexible and helpful with getting me on the schedule. He took pictures of Buddha on his walk and he made me feel at ease that someone who I could trust was walking Buddha. It was also great to work with someone who is so generous and helpful, and it made my experience so much better. I will definitely use Pet Peeps again, even if I'm not in an emergency, because I know they will take care of me and my (dogsitting) pets. More...

Big Kudos and thanks to Pet Peeps.We're longtime customers -- Pet Peeps was wonderful with our elder terrier and they have been equally helpful with our occasionally-peevish/always-demanding hound.Here's why I give Pet Peeps all five stars:  We recently traveled out of town while a friend stayed in our home and tended to the dog.  Then the house/dog-sitter pulled a muscle, restricting his movement. We contacted PetPeeps by phone and they very quickly responded to our need. Moral of the story: Even if you have a friend taking care of your pet, it's good to have backup from an established and flexible business.  I appreciate the quality of the staff at Pet Peeps.  And I certainly value having Gus and his team available when we need a hand.

Excellent service, Truly Exceptional staff.Our dog-walker Charlie has practically become part of the family!. Besides being friendly, courteous and  thoughtful, he leaves daily detailed notes letting us know exactly how out pup is doing each and every day! If that wasn't enough he frequently goes the extra mile and it doesn't go unnoticed! Thanks again Pet Peeps! More...

I recently switched to Pet Peeps after having several bad experiences with my previous sitter. I cannot say enough about Pet Peeps. My sitter emailed, called, and texted me during her first visit and constantly maintained communication throughout my vacation, which was like pulling teeth with my previous sitter. One of my cats is VERY shy and she called leaving a concerned message stating her concern for my cat’s seclusion. I was surprised and pleased that she cared enough to call. I wouldn’t hesitate to book them again and plan to use them for all of my pet sitting needs! Thanks Pet Peeps! More...

Gus and the gang do a great job watching after our two dogs everyday.  The online scheduling is very convenient, and the management team is responsive.  Since they have a high volume, you have to pick a window of time and you can't get exactly when you want, but it is not a big deal.  Paulo was our primary walker (he "retired" today) and really cared for our boys.  Overall, a great service with dedicated staff and worth the price!

What more can be said? Pet Peeps, the staff, and Gus (owner) are absolutely amazing. I go out of town a lot, and most of the time my trips are not planned long in advance. With a minimum 24-48 hours notice Pet Peeps is available to babysit my cat. Also, on the drop of a dime they are willing to help out when I have to extend my trips. They're always friendly, always responsible, and very well priced for the service and peace of mind that you get. I have a 25 lbs. bengal cat and I'm glad to say that he doesn't gain any weight while I'm away because Pet Peeps sticks to his strict feeding instructions (he actually loses weight while I'm out of town). One thing I really like is that Gus made an in-person visit to my house the very first time I booked Pet Peeps. That immediately made me feel comfortable and really gave a face to the business. Also, they don't mind when you call for updates (I don't call often, but I do call) and the pet sitter always leaves me a note letting me know how things went. Bottom line, my pet is alive and happy as a clam considering that his personal pillow and grooming service (me) is out of town. Pet Peeps has never let me down and as long as I'm in the DC area I will continue using them without question. More...

I have been working with Pet Peeps for about a month now, using their walking and overnight services for my 10-year-old lab. My dog is I am very pleased with the services, in particular my walker Cary - she is reliable, consistent, great with my god and always keeps me updated on how each walk went. There have been a few times where I've had to switch the times of the walk because of things coming up at the last minute and Cary has been very flexible, moving around the many other dogs she walks to fit me in which I GREATLY appreciate!  Overall, Gus and his team are great. They are very flexible, understanding, considerate, and professional and I highly recommend them for both daytime walking and overnight sitting. More...

I have a very particular cat - he doesn't like many people and he hates when we go away. It doesn't help that he loved his old pet sitter in Chicago and the one time we used someone here in DC it didn't go well. So I was a bit hesitant when I contacted the folks at Pet Peeps to watch him during our last trip. But Gus and his team are awesome - they're very thorough and take care of everything for us. They think of everything, and our pet is as well cared for as if we were here. And I love the texts to let me know they were here and that he's healthy (and more importantly, hasn't gotten into anything he shouldn't be in). They're awesome, and I'm glad to have finally found them. More...

Pet Peeps is thus far the best pet sitting service I have used in DC, and I have tried a few of them.  They do a great job of following up with requests, concerns and just in general.  Their pet sitters are great and follow up with me when I'm out of town just to let me know everything is alright.  They have taken excellent care of my two cats, and the cats are always out and about when I come home, which to me indicates they were treated well.  There are a few hiccups here and there to be sure, but overall these are minor things and I've been very pleased with their service.

What can I say, Pet Peeps is absolutely wonderful.  We often have to go out of town and I always know that my dogs are receiving wonderful care.  Scheduling appointments is easy and customer service is great.  Whenever we come home our dogs are happy and I also know our home was looked after while we were away.   I highly recommend their services!

This place is wonderful! I was worried of leaving my 5 month old kitten home alone for a weekend for the first time. I like that you can sign up online, make appointments online, and put in the information needed too. What is great about their service (besides the fact that it is pretty inexpensive) is that Gus comes to your home to meet your pet and get to know everything, including where the trash and mail is located. They ask where the vet is in case the pet gets sick and even makes sure it is ok to take the pet out in case of an emergency. He takes a ton a notes and is really friendly. My sitter emailed me everyday about my pet and how she was doing. She even offered to feed my fish. When i came home, there was a nice note about what she did every day and how my kitten was doing over all. If you need a pet sitting service, use Pet Peeps. I They are trustworthy, reliable, and really care about your concerns and the well being of your pet. I will def be using them again. More...

Recently used Pet Peeps for my boyfriend's pitbull during a quick weekend trip.  They were great!- Were available at a really short notice this time (much appreciated)- Texted that they had stopped by and the dog was OK (helpful to have that sense of relief and to know the number to call to check-in if necessary)- Took in the mail (thoughtful)- Left a note saying that the dog was a delight (yay!)Highly recommend!

Pet Peeps and Gus provide very good care and wonderful customer service.My beautiful silver tabby, JJ, suffered from cancer, renal failure and mega colon. They were great about asking very detailed questions regarding his care. I particularly like that they called me while I was on travel just to let me know how JJ was doing.My baby boy was almost 20 years old when he went to the ancestors on March 19, 2010. More...

I've used PetPeeps for mid-day dog walking and overnight pet sitting and had good experiences with both.  I live in Penn Quarter and was having a hard time finding a service in my neighborhood so I was really happy to find a reliable service who really care about animals.  And they were very sweet to my dog.  I agree with someone else who said overnight pet sitting was expensive since you also need to pay for a another walk (or two ) if you're gone for a 24 hour period, but it's a premium service that I only used when I needed to.  I definitely understood the cost going in.  From my experience the dog walking fees are pretty standard.
