Patriotic Paws Dog Walking
We’re BiPawtison: We walk big paws and little paws in NW DC
Your Dogs Will Love Us!
When I moved to the Palisades I had trouble finding a reliable dog walker for my dog Bella. So I saw a need for a trusted dog walking company and bought an existing company.
At Patriotic Paws Dog Walking (PPDW) we are dog people, but we are more than that. We actually know dogs. Pet parents choose us over other walkers because of our commitment to high quality care, knowledge, experience, and our corporate values. Kim is fear free certified, pet CPR and first aid certified, and has completed the Karen Pryor Foundations in Dog Training. What does this mean for you?
One time we arrived to a dog walk to find the toy sized dog eating something toxic. We have the knowledge to take the proper steps in an emergency such as this. Another time a new dog was happy to meet us during the meet and greet with the owners home but when the owners were not present the dog was fearful. Our knowledge and actions kept the dog from turning the fear into aggression.
We are a small, woman-owned, local business and were hit hard by the pandemic. We are grateful for all of our clients who stuck with us over this difficult time and for those new clients who keep us going!
The following is the need-to-know information. Additional details and explanations are found throughout our website.
We offer weekday mid-day dog walks starting @ $27 and short potty breaks starting @ $20. Potty breaks are great for puppies and seniors or bookings during hot summer months. Additional charges may apply for multiple dogs or dogs that are strong pullers/have poor leash manners. Day time hourly services start at $46/hr and are offered during off-peak, mid-day hours.
Our normal business hours are Monday-Friday 9-5 broken down into three shifts, late morning, mid-day, late afternoon. We book in time windows only and do not offer exact times.
Bookings outside of our normal business hours are considered overtime and $32/walk.
Our headquarters is located in the Palisades. We primarily live in and service DC Ward 3 but we also have availability in other neighborhoods.
