Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers: 100% Reliable On A Snowy Day In Seattle

I’m proud to say that’s how many dog walks, pet visits and other appointments Sniff Seattle has missed or cancelled due to snow.


Your pets’ needs are the same when snow’s covering the outside world. And we’re going to be there for them — just like we said we would.

We’ve built a wonderful team of dedicated walkers who cover Seattle, Shoreline and West Seattle. And our motto is: “No pet left behind!”

When snow hits Seattle, you’ll probably have a lot on your mind. But for our clients at Sniff Seattle, worrying whether their dog walker or pet sitter is showing up isn’t one of them.

San Francisco Cracks Down On Pack-Walking; At Sniff Seattle, We Don’t Pack-Walk Our Dogs

12 Jan
Dog Walking

A little intimidating if you're another pedestrian? We agree!

One walker. Too many dogs. You’ve probably seen it before. Well, San Francisco is cracking down on it.

And we think it’s about time.

Even though we offer a similar service, we have to say for the record that not all dog walkers think — or operate — alike.

Sniff Seattle doesn’t “pack-walk.” Never has. Never will.

I mean, you ever see someone struggling down the street with eight dogs jumping around in every direction? Looks like a whole lot of chaos — and not a lot of fun — doesn’t it? We have questions about it’s safety, too.

We believe pack-walking isn’t the best choice. And we believe your dog deserves better.

And we’re not talking about families with two dogs. Or neighbor dogs who like to walk together. Of course we walk dogs in those situations together. We’re talking about the chaos of driving around for two hours, loading up a car full of ten dogs and then finally walking them for a half hour and driving around another couple hours to drop them off.

Pack-walking is not the Sniff Seattle way.

San Francisco has just passed a new law putting limits on pack-walking. At Sniff Seattle, one of our core beliefs is that individual attention for your dog is the way to go!

Careful. A bunch of hours might zoom by if you click the link!

I don’t know whose dogs these are. All I know is that it’s very addictive to watch them on the Shiba Inu Puppy Cam.

Six pups. Three boys. Three girls. Click above for the cuteness!

‘Bella’ Number One Name For Dogs And Cats

It’s not just readers and movie-goers who love The Twilight Saga. It’s pet lovers, too!

The name “Bella” has been the most popular dog name for a couple years. And this year, cat lovers have made it the fave for felines.

The survey comes from a pet insurance company, who went through their database to determine the results.

I love my Twilight … so I’m not surprised!

Team Edward or Jakob? Or Team Dog or Cat? Hmmm.

Carrie Underwood Saves Dog

Singer Carrie Underwood saved a dog on the eve of New Year’s Eve. The “Temporary Home” singer found a permanent home for a Labrador she found on the side of the road.

Carrie was heading home to Nashville after visiting her family for Christmas when she came upon two dogs on the side of the highway. Sadly, one had died. But Carrie quickly hurried the other to an emergency vet — who fixed her up.

Carrie already has two dogs of her own. So, after taking the newly re-named “Stella” home with her, Carrie checked with her neighbors.

Stella now lives just down the street from Carrie with a couple that was looking for a new pup!
