Introduction: Between work, school, kids, and other commitments, it's hard to keep up with everything sometimes! We're here to tell you, you're not meant to! In 2018, Hands N Paws was founded on just one mission: Busy pet parents deserve to feel more PEACE OF MIND when they're away from home tending to their busy lives. Now with over 200 pet parents served (and even triple the number of pets!), Hands N Paws is seeing its mission truly come to life in many service locations throughout Ohio. Hands N Paws prides itself on having a premium staff of trained pet care technicians, a dedicated client support team, and an easy-to-use mobile app where clients can schedule services, view visit journal reports, pay invoices, and more! Hands N Paws continues to structure its service offerings to offer the most individualized and truest peace of mind to pet parents who need it most— the busy bees! By doing so, pet parents can rest assured and truly enjoy their time away from home knowing that their pets are being well cared for in their absence.

Last Sunday was my 2nd time using Hands N Paws services. Jason was our dog walker and he really went the distance (no pun intended!) with my Australian Shepherd, Bentley. He made sure Bentley felt comfortable before taking him on a long walk. He sent me pictures of my boy, I could see the map of where they walked and when he returned back home, Bentley let him give him belly rubs! (This never happens with new friends!) I cannot express how much I appreciated being able to go out of town for a day and know that my Bentley was in such great hands! Your pets are like family and so is Hands N Paws! Will definitely use their services again! I’d give them a solid 10 out of 10! Beverly Trout
