How We work
All our walks are GPS tracked and can be viewed on your pets report cards via the Scout app and e-mail. Report Cards are included in every service notifying you if your pet went pee or poo, a note on how our time together went, and a photo of your loved one. Keeping pet parents in the loop and informing them when the requested services are completed via e-mail with the report card. We use the Scout app to make bookings, keep pet and home entry information updated, report cards, and billing.

Many people ask how we got into dog walking and pet care. Shady decided to start this business and the answer is simple, the business found me. In 2015 Shady’s roommate hired a dog walker for her two adorable pups. On one particular hot day when he happened to be at home the walker did not take the little guys out for their daily exercise stroll and potty break session! The walker was simply playing on her phone on the couch without the knowledge he was upstairs being nosy waiting for her to take the pups at least the the backyard to take care of business, but nope she gave them treats and hung out inside paying them very little notice…he can still hear there little whimpers for attention. That following evening Shady informed his roommate of what happened or lack of what happened and offered to walk the pups instead. It was in that moment Shady Waggers was born to make sure your pets are taken care of as agreed offering GPS tracked walks, photo updates, and sharing posts on social media to show the world all the fun and activities we are up to.
From there Shady Waggers has grown with a great team allowing us to be there for your pets with no love loss.
