Why Hire Us

 

Hiring the Right Miami Pet Sitter or Dog Walker for Your Needs.

Hiring the right Miami pet sitter or dog walker is a very important part of a pet parent’s life. We are a recognized leader in professional pet sitting and dog walking in Miami. With hundreds of happy and satisfied clients, we have plenty of experience caring for beloved cats, dogs, rabbits, parrots, sugar gliders, ferrets, reptiles, and more. Our primary goal is to provide safe, fun, rewarding care for our pet clients, and worry-free, convenient peace of mind for our pet parents. So why hire us, when there are so many pet sitting companies and dog walkers in Miami?

We Believe in Integrity

We run a professional pet sitting company, which means we pay local, state, and federal taxes. We are bonded, licensed, insured, which means our employees and your property are covered for damage or accidents; hobby pet sitters we are not. We believe in running a business ethically, legally, and with integrity. We do not undercut or compete with our fellow pet professionals in underhanded ways. We are surrounded by great colleagues and believe in treating each other with respect; we regularly network with them and refer clients to each other and are happy to do so!

We Hire Employees, not Independent Contractors

Employees are the right fit for our company, and we take great care of them! They are paid fair, living wages, and are covered by insurance. They are all animal lovers, groomers, volunteers at zoos and pet rescues, and pet parents themselves. We have a lengthy application process, where we interview twice, run background and reference checks, and where owner Flavia Berti trains them personally in our policies and protocols.

Our pet sitters are employees, and are therefore mentored and trained in how to perform the job the Equipaws way.

Back-Up Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers

We work as a team. We know what it is like to need last minute care for our furry babies, which is why we employ at least two pet sitters per service area, ready to care for our clients’ pets as necessary. This means if one of our employees gets sick, we always have a back-up. It’s good for your pets, your peace of mind, and ours, too.

Pet Care Services Available Year-Round

Flavia and her employees are available year-round, including holidays. We know how stressful it can be to find trusted pet care. We have you covered, whether it’s for daily walks, extended vacations, or emergency trips.

Great Human Service, too!

Finding the right caretaker for your pet is a balance between trust and convenience. Our reputation rests on attention to detail and excellent customer service; owner Flavia is available to clients via phone, email, or text message, and messages are answered either immediately or within 24 hours. We support clients in times of need, be it during emergencies at 11 p.m., or for special occasions like caring for pets during a wedding weekend or a pregnancy.

And since we know how busy Miami life is, we offer convenient online scheduling and payments through Power Pet Sitter, the most trusted and used pet sitting software in the country. This tool makes it easy to schedule appointments wherever you are, as well as to update important information like new feeding instructions, veterinarian records, and emergency contact information. It’s a great tool for you and our pet sitters, too! Our clients also regularly ask us for recommendations for related services, such as a great veterinarian, dental hygienist, or pet food provider. We have established a trusted network of fruitful relationships and love connecting our clients and fellow local business owners.

Part of the Animal Loving Community

We regularly volunteer and sponsor events to help Miami’s needy animals. Our employees have always been a part of these events, which makes us feel so grateful and supported. The events are always memorable and fill us with hope for the future of pets in Miami! We have sponsored these in the past, and look forward to more!
