What Sets Waggy Tails Apart?

Professional Dog Walker
It’s a Trust and Reputation thing:

As a professional pet sitting and dog walking company, we are not your neighbor down the street trying to pick up a little extra money.  This is what we do!  Waggy Tails Pet Sitting + Dog Walking carries full commercial liability insurance and bonding to ensure your peace of mind, and we are proud members of Pet Sitters International.  With over 500 clients and thousands of pet sitting visits under our belts, to say that we’re experienced is an understatement.  Waggy Tails is made up of a team of pet sitters and is not a one person company.  You can be assured that we’ll always have a experienced pet sitter available when you need us.

Experience is everything:

We understand that your pets are a part of your family.    All of our pet sitters have been pet parents at some point in their lives, and many are right now.  We believe until you are a pet parent yourself, you don’t quite “get it” so we are happy to say that all of our pet sitters “get it”!  Several members of our team are American Red Cross Certified in Pet First Aid and CPR, and Summer Tannhauser, our owner and team leader, is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter through Pet Sitters International.

Availability 365 days a year:

We know that life doesn’t stop on the weekends or holidays. That’s when the fun happens!  That’s why we offer service 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We know how much it stinks to be away from your furry family members, but no worries that’s where we come in!  Whether you’re traveling for a business, a few miles away at work, or getting out of town for the day, we’re here for you when your pets need a back-up best friend.

I started using Waggy Tails 3 years ago when I adopted my cat, Knoxy. My hometown is St. Louis, so my husband and I travel home a lot and because an 8-hour drive home is not conducive to bringing along a cat, we needed another option. We didn’t want to kennel our cat because it’s […]

Love the crew at Waggy Tails! I’m a veterinarian, so I’m always extra critical on who I let take care of our four legged kids and Waggy Tails did not disappoint!

Summer and her associates certainly put their heart into caring for animals of all types. Waggy Tails is the only organization I trust to care for my pets while away.
