Seattle’s Best Professional Dog Walker
Why I’m Not Your Average Seattle Dog Walker
My name is Seth and I am the owner/operator of Bones, Hugs, and Harmony Pet Care. Your award-winning independent Seattle dog walker with Fear Free® certification and Force Free Methods! I am an animal advocate and have a passion for helping animals. So why pick me as your Seattle dog walker/pet sitter when there are so many to choose from? It’s easy to love animals and walk dogs, right? There is so much more information and training required to give your fur kids the highest quality of life! You will see early on that I offer an unsurpassed level of dedication, compassion, and experience.
To make sure I can provide the highest quality care, I read books on ethical science-based force free dog training and attend seminars from world-renowned modern trainers and dog behaviorists who hold Ph.D.’s in animal behavior. I am Licensed/Insured and Pet CPR/First Aid Certified. Educating myself on the pet food industry and holistic integrative veterinary practices is another passion of mine and I closely follow the leading veterinarians of these fields for great resources on safer and natural treatments, therapies, etc. Additionally, I am a member of The Pet Professional Guild, which gives me access to a wealth of modern science based force free dog training and behavior!
Do you need to worry about different employees or independent contractors every few months? No way! Every pet at Bones, Hugs & Harmony is always cared for by only me. And I know how hard it is to be away from your best friend, so I provide photos and updates after every visit if requested.
Sure, I give treats and belly rubs just like every other dog walker in Seattle, Wallingford, or Fremont but it takes much more to ensure your fur baby’s have the highest quality of life. I offer group walks which provide your pup with socialization and exercise without the negative aspects/risks of the dog park. Generally your pup will have fun with 1-2 others. I keep the group walk limit low so I can reduce risks and ensure each pup still gets personalized attention from me, as well as giving them freedom to sniff around, make choices, and engage in mental stimulation. Group walks often turn into puppy playdates contained in a sizeable fenced in backyard.
I thoroughly vet each pup’s behavior through walks and play before considering who would be good pup partners. Have a reactive pup? No problem! I would take them on private leashed walks. I give the pups choices on their walk without reinforcing unwanted behaviors. It’s important for the dogs to be dogs and have FUN! Another added benefit of group walks/play dates is the complimentary additional time outside of their house.
I offer a free 30 minute Consultation to ensure your fur baby and I are comfortable with each other. Let’s get together and you’ll see I’m the right dog walker for your pup!
