CDC Guidelines

Our team members have always used best practices regarding cleanliness but have increased their vigilance by doing everything that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] recommends, as well as using their own leashes, wiping off doorknobs, keypads, counters, light switches, and more. We continue to monitor the CDC’s recommendations. For more information on the latest safety suggestions, we encourage you to visit the CDC website.


Walk & Wag has received COVID-19 Certification from Pet Sitters International to be educated on best practices during and after this pandemic.

This certification enables Lisa and the team to make responsible and well-informed decisions around pet-sitting services to ensure the health and safety of pets, clients, and team members while providing the quality pet sitting services our clients need.


Local Impact

COVID-19 continues to have a major economic impact on all of us. It has especially hit those in the service industry, like your professional pet sitters and dog walkers.

Our incredible team, while having varied backgrounds, made the decision to become professional pet sitters/dog walkers due to their love of pets. For many, this is a full-time career and only source of income.

For 10 years, Walk & Wag has managed through snow, ice, hurricanes, and many other uncontrollable events, but COVID-19 is like nothing we’ve ever seen. Walk & Wag has provided the highest quality pet care in our community, and we hope to weather this storm, as well.

In addition to dog walks and pet sitting services, team members can also provide pet taxi services to and from the vet or bring you pet food and supplies.

As always, Walk & Wag will be there for you and your pet now and in the future. We appreciate all of you and look forward to walking and wagging in a world without COVID-19.
