Dog Walking

I have a crazy husky that is always getting into trouble...not the bad kind, just the crazy things she does. I was lucky when I requested a local dog walker that Andrew was in the area and he had experience with huskies and how they are. The two have hit it off and my dog waits at the window looking for Andrew for their walk now. Can't ask for a better dog walker than that. I'm very pleased with him and his experience. More...

Waggy Walkys has been a saving grace for me for the last year I've had my dog. When I initially decided I wanted a dog I reached out to them to see what would be needed to ensure that I would have a walker that was able to meet my desired walk times. Justin Schramm (the director of sales at the time) talked me through the whole process ensuring I was comfortable knowing that this was an organization that was ready to meet my needs. I adopted Daisy at the end of March of 2019 and I immediately setup service with Waggy Walkys. They are great communicators and they were quick to respond to any questions, comments, or concerns that I had as a new dog mom.I moved from Maryland to Va during the summer of 2019 and swapped from daytime walks Monday - Friday to evening walks Saturday through Tuesday. Once I found out my schedule was going to change to nights I reached out to WWs and they were quickly able to find me a walker that would be able to work my requested schedule. Vanessa, my walker, has been a God send and she has made the transition to a new area and a new shift more seamless than I could have ever imagined. She is a great communicator and leaves detailed notes about my dog's activities while even having learned the name of her other puppy friends in the neighborhood which shows me that she pays attention to what makes Daisy (my dog) happy!Waggy Walkys is a great organization that cares about their customers and Vanessa has elevated an already great experience to a world class experience! I appreciate them more than my words could express. More...

We had a great experience with Waggy Walkys taking care of our three dogs with daily walks. Chris was so good with all our dogs and they were nothing but wiggles whenever he arrived. Chris was conscientious and communicative - in fact, all of our experiences with the company have been pleasant, professional, dog- and cat-friendly, and helpful. We would 100% recommend Waggy Walkys to anyone, and we are delighted to have found them! More...

I've used Waggy Walkys for about 6 months now and I would absolutely recommend Santiago to anybody looking for regular/routine walks. They company is great and quick with communication and flexible with walks and specifics. I know my dogs are taken care of during the day and excited to see Santiago when he comes over. He is great and texting daily to let me know how they were, any schedule issues or days I need to skip. Very reliable company. More...

Waggy Walkys is the only dog walking company that will work with my schedule! Whether I need a walk once a week, five times a week, or care during the COVID-19 pandemic, Waggy Walkys is always responsive, accommodating, and professional. My dog walker, Natalia, is the absolute best. She writes notes that are the highlight of my week and somehow makes every 15-minute walk with my pup sound like a grand adventure! As a bonus, she always leaves time to give my pup some scratches. I can not recommend this company enough! More...

Our original review was 1 Star, went through a tough time where walkers weren't showing up. Management worked really hard to resolve the situation and have been dedicated in trying to find us a more stable walker situation. We had continued to use the service despite the rough patch because we had gone a solid 3 years prior to it with great experiences. The rough patch lasted about 7 months. It's looking up again. Not ready to give them the 5 star review I'd have done prior to the rough patch, but it's looking more optimistic. More...

I have been using Waggy Walkys for several years now. Before signing on with Waggy Walkys I had hired walkers off of other sites and they were not reliable. I LOVE how I can rely on my walker- Sue- to always be there for my Blakey. I recently went on maternity leave and was home for several months with my daughter but couldn't walk my dog. Sue came each day and I loved seeing/hearing her with Blake. He was always so excited to her. After her walks with him she will play with him inside and always ends with a treat. When I am in a bind and need a second walk or a weekend/holiday walk Sue or a back up is always available! The customer service is a quick email or phone call away and always super helpful. We recommend Waggy Walkys to anyone who asks. Thanks for loving our Blakey and taking such great care of him! More...

After an injury I was unable to walk my two dogs in the evening. We turned to Waggy Walkys after a reference from a friend. For the past 3 months we have had daily walks in the evening.Our walker, Alicia, was always on-time (or if delayed kept us informed), gained complete trust with us and our dogs. As opposed to a lot of other dog walkers we see around our neighborhood who are constantly on their phones and barely take the dogs for a longer walk, Alicia made sure our guys had all of the time they needed to stretch their legs and do their business. Often times she went over the allotted time to give them a little extra play time. Any time we had to make a change the WW office workers were responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend Waggy Walkys as a professional, trustworthy organization to care for your most precious four legged family members. More...

I loved our experience with Waggy Walkies! Unfortunately it was too good to be true because our walker got a new job. I will need a new walker for the winter months but I haven't contacted the company yet to set up a new interview. ..I just loved my walker Lisa so much. She always left a report card telling what each dog did and would sometimes text me pictures during their walks. The ONLY negative thing I have to say is that after she text me to say she was no longer with the company I never got my house key back. I'm sure its lost out there...just a silver key...lol.

The company was great! They had goodrates and amazing customer service. We used them for about 4 months and are only stopping because we just moved to a new area outside of the city. I want to give a big shout out to our walker, Mark, who was awesome! He was very flexible and openly communicated with us regarding what was going on with our 6 month old puppy. It seemed he was having as much fun on their walks as she (our little labradoodle) was. I would definitely recommend these guys if you are looking for a walker, especially if you require some flexibility. More...

If I could leave zero stars, I would. Here's a novel. It's long, but worth knowing what happened if you are considering using Waggy Walkys:A little over a month ago I reached out to Waggy Walkys to set up a meet and greet with a walker to take my puppy to our apartment complex's dog park two evenings per week while my partner and I both worked evening shifts. They assigned me R. who came to my apartment to meet my dog and I. Upon meeting R., I noted that she was a bit timid and when I asked her how long she had been walking dogs she replied "A while" and to how much experience she had with walking dogs "Some." When we went outside to look at the park I asked if I should provide a list of dogs my dog is allowed to play with--several walkers in my neighborhood do this. She said no and seemed puzzled why I would even bring it up. When I asked if she went to dog parks often, she said she had actually never been to a dog park with dogs before. Altogether, I didn't have the strongest first impression of R. and expressed my concern in an email to my original contact at Waggy Walkys and asked if we could meet a more experienced walker. My dog is friendly, but is an 11-month-old Australian Shepherd. She has a strong personality and needs someone who will be in charge of the situation. I didn't feel that R. would succeed. Also, she was hired specifically to take my dog to the park--it's her best energy outlet and has tons of friends in our apartment complex.I received an email asking if we could do a trial run with R. because all of the other walkers were book ad she was the most conveniently located. Begrudgingly we agreed--we needed someone that week. Things seemed fine until we noticed our dog did not seem to be getting much exercise during these hour-long play sessions and our friend saw that R. was not taking our dog to the park--instead making her go on a walk when she clearly wanted to play. She also mentioned that our dog didn't appear to be comfortable. We planned to cancel at the end of the week. The next time she came she was gone with our dog for nearly an hour and a half--we have a little home camera we set up to keep an eye on our dog when we're out for a while. No explanation for why she was gone so long. I had to ask for text messages letting me know when my dog was home again. No photos were sent.Finally, we had scheduled a one-off evening play-time since I was out of town and my partner had to work. I received an email that R. was scheduled. I did not receive confirmation that she agreed to it. The day of I sent Waggy Walkys an email--no response. I text R. who finally answered that she would not be coming and "Sorry for the inconvenience."That was the absolute final straw and I emailed the company explaining all of these issues and that I would be cancelling my account with them.I received a phone call from V., the new operations manager, who was very kind and apologetic for R.'s behavior and that she would be fired. I didn't want to go so far as to fire anyone from their job, but that's the company's business--not mine. V. offered to find me a new walker and assured me that I would not be charged for the three walks that we had issues with. He also offered a $50 credit to start with a new walker. I told him that if I decided to continue with Waggy Walkys, I would reach out to him directly.A week later I got an email that I was assigned a new walker. I did not ask for this walker, I did not have any intention of continuing with Waggy Walkys.Fast-forward to last night, my partner and I are working evening shifts again and our new walker text us to let us know that our doggo is back in her crate and had a good time playing with her neighborhood friends. I get home and notice that there are packages that neither my partner nor I brought in. I go to our concierge asking how the packages got in--thinking there was a mix up and a neighbor was given ours by mistake and she tells me she dropped them off when she let Waggy Walkys in to take our dog out! I had not authorized this new person to begin walking my dog. I had not met this person. I did not receive notification after our dog was back home. If we hadn't gotten packages that day, I would have had no idea that a stranger was coming to my house and taking my dog out.I am extremely upset with Waggy Walkys. I've spoken to V. again on the phone who assured that the office staff who had set this up without any confirmation with me would be fired. Not good enough. I will never use this company or recommend it. If any of their walkers ever show up to take my dog out again, our concierge has been instructed to call the police.Edit:One star added for V. He called after this review trying to resolve the situation again. I really do appreciate his help and efforts. Unfortunately, it's hard to regain trust in a company after a situation such as this. I wish V. and Waggy Walkys the best and hope he is able to turn his team around. More...

So far, so good.  Given some of the negative reviews, I waited a while after starting service to write one.  I've now been using their service for almost exactly a month. We did have a hiccup when starting service in that they assigned me a new walker who never showed for the initial meeting, but they quickly patched that up, assigned me someone else who has been with them forever, and she showed up for our initial meeting right on time and every day since.  She's great with my pup, he gets the walk he needs, and everything is very well.  When I get home, his crate water bowl is never dry and he typically has an ear (pig or cow) out of the closet to entertain himself with, just like I asked.  She even had either a friend or walking trainee with her one day and instructed the other lady to stay out of my house (I have a doorbell camera so I saw this happen...very, very good handling of the situation!  Only the person I know came in!).  Between the doorbell camera and a smart lock, I know when she comes, and it's always within the schedule. This week, I emailed them with some schedule changes (for vacation and the like) and they responded within minutes to my email to let me know the schedule had been updated.Bottom line, outside of a minor hiccup initially, they've provided the service I need, well, and at a reasonable price. I would recommend them at this point. More...
