About us

Hi there! We’re Richard and Mikey, the two-person team behind Downtown Doggies: Dog Walking & Cat Sitting in/around Downtown Portland, Oregon* (*more info on our service area here). ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹

We are committed to providing individual care tailored to your petโ€™s needs. No overwhelming pack walks. No sad, stressed out dogs lost in a sea of tangled leashes. No neglected kitties. No rotating staff of strangers entering your home. Just your pet and usโ€”having the best time on our indoor/outdoor adventure! We value quality of care over quantity of clients. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿˆ

We prioritize earning and keeping your trust. Leaving your home and loved one to a stranger is a big deal, whether itโ€™s for a drop-in visit or overnight pet sitting. We understand that. For this reason, insurance and bonding is our baseline from which to do more. This includes a time-stamped, GPS-mapping tool to track routes for dog walks and check-ins for cat sittings. It also includes regular updates with photos and notes via text message and email. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘

We strive to infuse our eco-friendly values into our pet care services by commuting 100% by bike, using biodegradable/recycled-plastic pet waste bags, gleefully dispensing plant-based dog treats, and even printing our business cards on recycled paper and powering our website with renewable energy. ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ

During our eight years in pet care, we have cared for hundreds of pups and kittiesโ€”as though each were our own fur family. It is in the memory of our fur families, our childhood dogs Macky the Cocker Spaniel-Lhasa Apso and Kaley the Smooth-Haired Miniature Dachshund, that Downtown Doggies is dedicated. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ
