Dog Walking/Pet Sitting

In today's society, most of us work long hours and worry about our dogs sitting at home, going from one couch to another, and not knowing what to do with themselves, until mommy or daddy come home.  Worry no more!!!!  Penelope loves her daily walks with her baby brother Spartacus, and so will your dog.  

Penelope's Pet Stop has three (3) dog walkers:
Jorge takes care of many of the dogs in our neighborhood; 
Kate serves the later afternoon and evening walks in our area and also in Riverdale;
Donavon serves the Southern area of the Bronx. 

Our walkers will help your dog maintain a normal routine in your home environment.  We treat your dog and home with the love, care and respect the way we treat our own.  Our walker will take your dog on a daily walk, once or twice a day, as many days of the week that you need.  Our walkers love animals and your pet will always be in the safest of hands.  If you need our walker  to do anything further, please let us know.*

Prior to the actual dog walking, we will arrange a meet and greet between your dog and our walker. 
We do "group walks", in addition to "private walks".  Your dog will be included in our group walk, if at that time there are other dogs that are being walked.  Otherwise, it will be a private walk.  It all depends on the dogs' schedules  We will also feed your dog or cat and that is also an additional $3 for each pet.

Our dog walking hours are between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., seven (7) days a week.  If you need your dog walked on an actual holiday (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, New Year's Day), there is an additional $5 for those special days.
Our walkers will be happy to follow any instructions you might have when going to the park, or administer any medicine that may be necessary, feed your pet or give them fresh water, water plants, etc.
If your dog is not social and prefers not to be around other dogs, please specify, so that we make sure your dog is being walked in a private walk.
We will earn your trust and we thank you for trusting us with your loved ones.
A well-exercised dog, is a happy dog!!!!
