Thank you for visiting our webpage and considering our services for the care of your pal!


Pet Pals of Pickerington, LLC is a family owned and operated professional pet sitting business, serving Pickerington, Ohio and adjacent areas.  We are life-long pet owners with a passion to provide loving care for your pets. We offer reliable, dedicated and personalized pet care in your home as well as midday and evening walks. We are Insured and Bonded members of Pet Sitters International. Background checks are completed on all company members and associates.

We treat your pet pals as if they were our own. Whether you are away for a day, a week, need a midday  walk or evening walk, we can provide an individualized plan to meet your needs. We want to ensure that our client’s pals receive the best care possible on a daily basis.  We understand that the cost of professional pet care can add up; this is why, in addition to our low daily rates, we have established discounted rates for both our dog walking  (5 days per week) and pet sitting (7 consecutive days) services.  This value proposition provides your pal daily individual attention when you cannot be there and provides you with peace of mind at an affordable price.  We believe this creates a win-win-win relationship.

Benefits of Daily Walking
  • Health: Pets need regular and consistent exercise to live long, healthy, and happy lives.

  • Socialization and Stimulation: Walking stimulates your pal's senses. This stimulation often includes meeting other people or animals, which can be an excellent way to develop proper socialization.

  • Behavior: Simply put, a tired dog is a good dog. Regular walking helps to release excess energy, resulting in calmer behavior at home. With frequent, lengthy walks, your dog will be less inclined to bark, chew, bite, use the bathroom indoors, etc.

  • Peace of Mind: Hiring a professional dog walker gives you the peace of mind that your dog is well taken care of, even when you aren’t at home.

  • Time: We all live busy lives, and every minute counts. Sometimes, consistent lengthy walks are difficult to fit into our schedules. We often wake up extra early, head home for our lunch hours, and delay making dinner for our families in an effort to make sure our dogs get the care they need. With a regular dog walker, your dog still gets all of the exercise and attention they deserve, while you get back a great deal of time. Everyone wins!
