Since 1997, this fully insured and bonded dog-walking and pet-sitting biz has happily cared for Twin Cities furkids. Affection, safety and conversation are part of every pet visit, and humans will appreciate the super-customizable services (whether your dog needs extra exercise, solo play time or special care, the pet pros here are glad to oblige). They are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year and will adapt to non-traditional work schedules. Last-minute emergency? They'll come to your sitting- or walking- aid whenever possible. Need help on a holiday? It's the same charge as any other day. The Urban Dog is also proud to be both affordable and accessible. Not only do they serve the entire metro area, but if you happen to relocate within the Twin Cities, they'll continue to serve you and your pooch in your new 'hood. The owner of The Urban Dog hosts the fun and informative radio show Pet Connections, 11:00 a.m. - noon on Sundays, on AM950.

We have used the Urban Dog for the past eight years for a variety of services. Whether it has been regular services or emergency services, Cathy, the owner of Urban Dog, and her team has never let us down. She has gone beyond the call of duty with our dog and we know that our dog is well taken care of in our absence. We have had flight delays in returning home from trips and she has been most accommodating with these unplanned changes. Her commitment and compassion for our dog are what make us most satisfied clients. We are so thankful that we can rely on the Urban Dog month after month, year after year for consistent and reliable pet care. Brad and Kerry from St. Paul, MN

Arnold's and Lou's dad

March 31, 2014

I recently ruptured my Achilles tendon. The devastation of not being able to walk my two goldens, Arnold and Lou was an equal stress to any challenges ahead of me. Thank goodness for Cathy and her team at The Urban Dog. The Urban Dog team stepped in, immediately embraced the leashes, and handled my dog dad role with Arnold, Lou and even our neighbor's golden too. The Urban Dog team maintains daily communications with me, and they have been incredible to work with. My lucky goldens, very much agree!

I recently moved to Minneapolis and was worried about finding a sitter for my 15-year-old pup. I was delighted to find The Urban Dog and after meeting Cathy I could not have been happier. It is a great feeling knowing I am leaving my dog in good hands. Highly recommend!

Happy Puppy Mom

January 4, 2012

I have used Urban Dog for 2 years now and LOVE them! They are like family. When I was first checking out dog walkers the owner, Cathy, insisted on coming to my house and meeting me and my dog to see if it was a fit. No one else I called did this - showed me she really cared. I could not be a single working puppy mom without them! On nights I have to work extra late, or on a long holiday day, they will help me out-- they are reliable and my dog loves the walkers and they love him. What more could you ask for??
