About Us

Committed to Quality

At Wild & Free Pets, we love caring and connecting with animals to create everlasting relationships. We provide walks for your canine (or feline, or other) companion as if they were our own. Our staff are dedicated to making your pets quality of life and yours mutually satisfying. We follow LIMA principles (Least Invasive, Minimally Aversive) and our trainers are CPDT-KA certified (Certified Professional Dog Trainers – Knowledge Assessed)  

Reliable and Trustworthy Caretakers

When you live a busy life, it can be hard to consistently provide the attention and care that your pets demand. With over 20 years of combined experience, our staff of professional dog walkers knows pets and will deliver quality attention and exercise that fits into busy schedules. Our scheduling app, Precise Petcare allows communication between pet parents and sitters, GPS locations, and time stamps.

Prioritizes safety

We are always prepared for any pet’s needs and ensure that your pet will receive the best care and love. Their safety and happiness are our top priority. Walkers are trained in handling skills, first aid & CPR, and some have a vet med background.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Wild & Free does such an amazing job! All the walkers are very professional and I am so thankful to have their services! I recommend them to everyone. My dog loves them too! 🙂

Kaley & PEARL

Wild & Free Pet Services is the best dog walking service I’ve ever used. I didn’t love Wag and Rover given the inconsistency between walkers and lack of personal introduction. We met the owner and our regular walker prior to the first walk which made me feel comfortable and confident. The owner and staff of Wild & Free are professional, dependable, and flexible with desired walk time windows. Rain or shine, my puppy gets a walk and/or enrichments and training every visit. I highly recommend them!


We’ve been using Wild & Free Pet Services since 2019 and have been so impressed with the care and heart they put into their practice! They’re great at communication and scheduling is a breeze with the online portal.
