DogCentric was founded in 2005 by a dog-lover who could not find a dog walking service for her precious pooch that met her high standards to keep her dog happy, healthy and safe. She left her job in the corporate world to form a dog walking company that provided individual, customized visits for furry family members. By assigning each client a regular walker, you can count on your dog’s routine to be consistent, your dog to be lovingly cared for and treated like more than just a pet.

DogCentric Dog Walking offers customized, private visits that are tailored to your dog’s preferences. These visits provide a much-needed break during the day for dogs to get exercise, fresh air and a bathroom break. You have peace of mind knowing your dog is being cared for while you are out during the day. You come home to a calmer, happier dog at the end of a long day.

DogCentric walkers follow the routine developed by you and the manager at the initial consultation. Our management team is available to our walkers to help them through any situation they might encounter, leaving the walkers free to completely focus on the happiness, health and safety of the dog in their care.
