Forget the hassle of dropping your dog off, our dog walker will pick up your dog from your home and take him for a dog walk in his neighborhood. What better way to get extra time in your busy schedule and a happy, calmer dog when you get home?
We like to meet with you and your pets to fully understand your pet’s needs. The consultation is free of charge and clients are able to book our services after registering and setting up their online account.
We understand that there is much more to your pets than just setting out food and water. Of course we provide the basics such as feeding, fresh water, exercise and meticulous litter box care. More importantly, we take the time to get to know your individual pet’s personality and tailor our services to best suit their needs.

I love your sitters! More importantly, M loves your sitters! I have never been more happy with a pet sitting service. Your team is dependable, caring, observant, and takes action. I appreciated that when M was recently confronted by an aggressive dog, Bella told me who the dog was so that I could avoid him in the future and Bella also reported the incident to the front office of my apartment complex. If M is acting out of sorts (or even if her poops are not normal), Natalie and Bella will let me know. On the rare occasion that I am at home when Bella or Natalie stops by to take M out, M races down the stairs to greet them. Clearly, M is being treated well by them or she wouldn’t look forward to seeing them. It makes me really happy to read the notes that you or Bella or Natalie leave for me…I totally look forward to reading what kind of a day M had with your sitters so please keep writing them! I really appreciate your team but most importantly, you for creating such a wonderful business.
Peggy left a wonderful report, her efforts were above and beyond what we expected. We have found a wonderful pet sitting service we can trust with our pups and home.
I would highly recommend Scales, Tails and Paws. I broke my ankle and was unable to walk my dogs, I have a new puppy that has lots of energy and a older dog. I used the service to walk my dogs and to make sure the dogs got outside once a day. Kaitlyn was awesome and my dogs loved her, she was extremely helpful and left me notes or informed on what happen while on the walks. Scales, Tails and Paws was very accommodating with short notice that I gave them in requesting their services. My dog Annie, was always happy to see Kaitlyn, and I was impressed with the way Kaitlyn handled and played with my dog. I would definitely use Scales, Tails and Paws again.
