About The Dog Walker Houston
Ben (Founder of The Dog Walker)
We started The Dog Walker in 2006, with the goal in mind to provide reliable, professional pet care to owners who consider their pets an important part of the family. We have quickly become one of the most trusted and recognized names in dog walking and pet sitting We have proudly been serving Houston for the past 10 years and recently branched out into Austin. We even won The Houston Press “Best dog walker” award in 2009. We pride ourselves on developing personal relationships with all of our clients and their pets. As a client, if you ever have a pet care question or special need, you have someone to call who is always available and will come up with the perfect solution for your pet care needs.
The hiring of employees is perhaps the most important and difficult job facing any pet care company with high standards. Our job not only entails entering people’s private homes on a daily basis, but also the care of living creatures who are beloved members of our client’s families. For this reason, we have always taken great care to hire respectable and responsible animal lovers who have good backgrounds and have had prior experience with animals – either through lifelong pet ownership or through prior animal-related employment. The Dog Walker doesn’t hire new staff very often. We would rather sacrifice growth and profit than compromise on the care of your pets by operating a revolving door of casual workers on minimum wage. Our staff is comprised of legally registered employees who are paid the lion’s share of our revenues. Our hiring philosophy is that you get what you pay for. When it comes to the safety and happiness of your pets, we won’t take second best!
