Alex and Jackie got back to me within minutes of posting my request for a new dog walker. My pup is a bit on the higher maintenance side - a rescue who is easily scared and needs a female walker - they worked with my timing and schedule to understand my needs and do a meet and greet that day for walks starting the following day. Very professional, very friendly, competitively priced, and extremely accommodating. So far my pup is very happy!Aug 2, 2017Verified
Pooch Ventures has been an absolute blessing. I moved into the city with a 65lb pitbull this April, and was very nervous about hiring a new dog walker. Cori, Kane's walker, has been amazing since we started with Pooch Ventures, and I can't be any more satisfied. Cori has always been there for sporadic walks when I need them, and is always on time. What a burden they have lifted! Thanks Pooch Ventures.Jun 5, 2017Verified
We love Pooch Ventures!! They are reliable, trustworthy and super sweet to our dog Mochi. We are very pleased with their service and the technology they provide - I get alerted via email when they arrive, get details about the walk (ie potty business) and can even see a GPS route of my dog's walk. I highly recommend Pooch Ventures.Mar 8, 2016Verified
I love this company. They reply quickly to any concerns that I have and they are very accomodating. Uses GPS technology so I know where my dog was walked. Brian is so good with Riza. She gets excited every time she hears the doorknob rattle at 10am. It's money well spent!Jul 30, 2015Verified
Just started with them- I trusted Alex (the owner) right away when we met and my dog seems to really like the actual walker Cori, which lets be honest, is the most important thing! Love getting the alert from the app everyday with notes and pics from the walk. So far so good :)Oct 15, 2015VerifiedPooch Ventures's reply
Thanks for the review, Jamie. Cori is having a blast with Lucca. She's a total-dog-lover. I'm glad you are getting value from the alerts :)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?When you sign-up, you'll receive 5 free walks! We offer walks 7 days a week, and early morning, evening, weekend and holiday walks are $10 extra. Additional dogs added to a walk are charged at $10 per dog.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Every client relationship starts with a free meet and greet with one of our team members. We do our best to send the same dog walker every time, but we want to make sure that you and your pooch are comfortable with our team before we begin walking together. Once the meet and greet is complete, and permission to enter your home is granted, you'll be able to start scheduling walks and in-home grooming appointments at your earliest convenience.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All of our dog walkers have had personal experience owning and caring for a dog.
