Welcome to Hyde Bark! I started Hyde Bark in 2015 after having worked as a dog walker for other companies as well as on my own for over a decade. I started Hyde Bark for the sole reason that I loved walking dogs and originally Hyde Bark was just me! My husband, Brandon, quit his job to help me run the business in early 2016 and we have run Hyde Bark together ever since! My goal is to have the best and most dedicated local pet care service and employ (and pay well) a passionate, well-trained and diverse team. I also want ultimate accountability which is why we use Pet Check Technology that provides clients with real-time reports, photos and maps for each service.
I am so proud to have grown from a single client back in 2015 to today in which our small team of less than 20 per care providers care for well over 100 pets each and every day all in just the Hyde Park area. We have over 40 five star reviews on Yelp but it is really word of mouth that has helped us grow the most! My goal is still to “keep it small and local” and indeed we oftentimes have wait lists for new clients. I love being out there with the animals still and I love to see the happiness our walkers get from working and connecting with animals, too.
I am also proud that we offer actual employment with training, certification courses and mentoring, Several of our walkers have been with us since the beginning and make a good living for themselves just by spending time with pets every day! I am truly living my dream and it’s all thanks to our wonderful clients and wonderful team!
