My name is Seth and I am owner/operator of Bones, Hugs, and Harmony Pet Care. Your premier independent Seattle dog walker and pet sitter with an environmental and health conscious approach! I am an animal advocate and have a passion for helping animals. So why pick me as your Seattle dog walker when there are so many to choose from? It’s easy to love animals and walk dogs, right? 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 and science-based dog training and attend seminars from world-renowned modern trainers and dog behaviorists that 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 supporting member of the IAABC (International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants) which gives me access to a wealth of information!
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. 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 Seattle dog walker but it takes much more than that to ensure your fur children 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 but never more than 3. 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 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.
Be sure to check out my numerous likes and five-star reviews on Facebook, Google, Instagram, and Yelp. You will find I am the most recommended Seattle dog walker and pet sitter on the Nextdoor app, a popular national network app for the local community. I also won a Yelp recipient award in 2017! I am confident your fur baby will be extremely grateful you chose me as their Seattle dog walker! Read more about me…
