Why Choose Us for Dog Walking & Pet Sitting?
Our dog walkers and pet sitters are employees.
All of our employees have passed a multi-step screening process and a criminal
background check. We have refined our hiring process in the more than 10 years we’ve been in
business to ensure only pet loving responsible people join the Fur-Get Me Not team.
Employee training does not stop once they have been hired.
Hiring employees versus using contractors to care for your pets, not only allows us to
initially train everyone how to care for a pet properly, but it also allows us to continue
our team’s training throughout their employment. Our management team works hard
to resolve issues and ensure each employee has the support and knowledge needed to
deliver Fur-Get Me Not’s services.
Back-up procedures & internal systems ensure consistent
When you hire Fur-Get Me Not, you are hiring a dedicated pet care team. Our
management, office, and dog walking / pet sitting teams work together to ensure that if
your primary walker or care taker is unavailable because of illness, vacation, or any
other reason, a qualified employee will be able to step in for that reservation. Our
teams have proprietary tools to securely record and share your pet care instructions
and additional notes detailing your pet care team’s experiences. We are the largest
employee based company in the DC area ensuring you get uninterrupted care all year
We provide one on one pet care.
We provide individualized pet care services for your pets. The service we provide

We know pets.
Our owner is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT) and attention to pet behavior
is incorporated into everything we do. Our Dog Training Director is also a CPDT and
works closely with our Dog Walking / Pet Sitting General Manager to ensure our processes
are built with dog behavior in mind. Additionally, a number of our managers and staff
are cat owners and enjoy seeing the world from a feline perspective.
We focus on building long-term customer and pet
Our dog walkers and pet sitters will communicate with you through daily journals on
your pet’s activities during their visit. Our management and office team will work with
you to ensure your pet is receiving the care the way you want it and are pet care
resources for you. We strive to exceed your expectations and if we don’t, we will do
our best to work with you to fix it.
We are family owned and operated. We support the local
Fur-Get Me Not started as a one-woman business. Over the last 10 years, Tammy has
grown the business to where it is today by focusing on the individual needs of both the
pets in our care and their owners. Both Tammy, and now her husband, Steve, are
always available to receive and act on your feedback.
Tammy and Steve have two young children and a dog, Hunter. As a family, they work
hard at bettering the local community. Fur-Get Me Not works with a variety of pet
related non-profit organizations and we participate in several charity events each year.
We also hold various events at both our Adams Morgan and Arlington locations. We
strive to help educate pet owners and give back to the pet community.
