Walkadoodles & Whiskers Pet Concierge Gives Animals The Best

Walkadoodles & Whiskers Pet Concierge owner Kathy Vorisek treats all of the animals she cares for as if they were her own. “My business idea really came from my own thoughts as to how I want to feel when I leave my own pet,” Vorisek said.

All employees are trained and vetted.  “This includes shadowing an existing pet sitter/dog walker, as well as going through standard operating procedures, just to name part of the process. In addition, every pet sitter and dog walker is required to go through Red Cross CPR pet certification to become certified,” she says. “Every prospective employee goes through an extensive criminal background check, which gives us and our clients peace of mind. We are extremely diligent in our hiring process and truly hire people who genuinely love animals, and will love them like they are their own. After all, that is how I’ve built this company’s reputation in its early stages, and that is something we will not compromise on.”

Walkadoodles & Whiskers also supports pet charities. Vorisek says they partner with an app called WoofTrax, with her walkers registered with them for every walk.

“When we walk with your dog, WoofTrax donates to our animal charity of choice. We are just getting this kicked off officially, and are looking to donate to two or three different charities in the area, to be determined,” she says. “We are most excited to begin work on a multi-state project that will benefit the mental-health community. Our pets provide incredible benefit to our mental health, and we can’t wait to do more in this arena using our business to advocate for more awareness and greater programs for people – more to come on that very soon.”

Walkadoodles & Whiskers offers a wide variety of services, including drop-in visits, pet sitting and overnight pet sitting packages, which include more house-sitting features such as mail retrieval. “We feature an amazing app that allows pet owners to receive photos and videos along with the report on how their furry friends are doing while they are away,” she explains. “The app also has GPS capabilities and truly gives us an accountability to our clients. It has truly been a game changer. Our clients love this. We also have an agreement clients sign that covers everything needed to assure that no stones are unturned.”

Walkadoodles & Whiskers Pet Concierge also offers pet transportation to and from the groomer, to and from doggy day care, or anywhere else. Vorisek noted pet care is always the highest priority.

“We are truly a high-level concierge service with the highest level of customer care,” she said. “We will always show up when we say we will, be there no matter what, and we will take care of your pets as if they were our own. Currently we also offer additional services such as doggy excursions to the dog park, wedding weekend, doggy concierge services, puppy showers and doggy birthday parties, to name a few. We do many community events and are happy to talk to anyone interested in doing one with us. There’s a lot more to come, so stay tuned.”
