Jacksonville dog walking & in-home animal companion care


Dog Walking

 It's not just a walk, it's an exploration!  I walk with fun in mind, though your pup and I can also focus on weight management and leash training if requested. Choose from 30 or 60 minutes walks, on a single or recurring basis.  Every walk includes a break with water and treats. Starting at $15 a walk.  

In-home Pet Care

It's all about the creature comforts. The couch, the bed, the old cardboard box.  In-home pet visits reduces stress for everyone. Food, water, clean litter, grooming, medication and everyday stuff. 30 and 60 minute visits available, once, twice or three times daily.  

Porch Cat Care

Living in Springfield, I am a porch cat lover. My kids, Fizz and Tobias, were porch cats. Our community is dedicated to these cat communities and embraces Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR). For a few dollars a day, I'll make sure your special porch cats are cared for.   

Vet Visits

Short on time? Let me take your baby to the doc. With my veterinary experience, Ill relay all information with accuracy and explaination. Ill be sure to ask the right questions, or Ill call you during consultation and you can speak directly with the doctor. 

Chicken Coop Care

Know your ladies are safe. Early morning and evening visits. Open and securely close coop, head count, feed and water, nest box clean, egg collection, and of course meal worm treats. 

Party Pup Minding

Hosting a party? Need a designated dog watcher? Enjoy your human guests as they enjoy your event knowing all is well with their pup. Ill ensure dog guests are safe and entertained, your property stays intact, and pee and poop problems prevented. 

It's all about the kids!

Experienced Animal Carer

I'm Steve, an avid animal lover and friend since I can remember. As a child, I grew up surrounded by animals, some wild, some companion.  In Australia I worked in the veterinary industry for many years with two large hospitals, and one shelter. My roles ranged from cattery/kennel hand, boarding manager, veterinary nurse and client relations manager. I have walked many dogs in many shelters, and brushed a ton of cats too!  In Australia and San Diego, I also offered a dog walking and pet sitting service, just like this one.  I have been involved with animal behavior assessment, health diagnostics, and weight loss management. I have worked with many pet parents and  their kids, numerous species, breeds and temperaments.  I have always been dedicated to animal wellbeing and have a great understanding of the human-animal bond. I am an animal rights ambassador, raising awareness and funds to fight for a happy and free life for all.  

Insured, Reliable and Trustworthy

Walk Wag Pet and Purr LLC is fully insured via Pet Care Insurance with Lloyds of London. My reviews speak for themselves, and I'd be happy to put you in touch with my existing clients for a personal reference. I will care for your loved ones, and care for your home, as if they were my own.  I moved to the USA six years ago. Homeland Security did every check possible, and I was handed a green card within 6 months.  I think that speaks for itself.  

Satisfaction Guaranteed

It's all about you an the kids! I like to meet and greet with all new clients and kids before pet sitting. This ensures everyone feels safe. I like to ask questions. I am experienced and come prepared.  I travel with a Wag Swag, including, water, bowl, treats, wipes, first aid kit, poo bags and a spare slip lead.  I can assure you that your pets will receive the best care and a heap of love. As a pet parent myself, I truly understand and respect the human-animal bond.
