Dog Friendly Restaurants in Coconut Grove, Part I If you’re hungry or thirsty and want the first-rate company of your dog In Coconut Grove, you are in for a huge treat.

Not exactly! In this dog walker’s view, dog walks and pet toothpaste and tooth brushing are an even tie in the hierarchy of fun, yet healthy, “treats.” After all, it’s well-established that exercise will keep your pooch healthy physically and mentally, but do you know why you should brush your pets’ teeth daily? Since February is  “National Pet Dental Health Month,” we thought we’d talk about that instead of our obsession with dog exercise for a […]

It’s that time of the year again!  With Valentine’s Day approaching, we hope you’re taking advantage of the opportunity and making big plans to show your pets how much you love them!   …Within reason, of course.   We all know full well that no one loves us like our pets do.  From nudging our hands off of our keyboards with their snouts, and onto their heads for petting with one smooth motion, to curling up silently beside […]

There are so many things to be grateful for as pet sitters living in Miami. For starters, we get to walk dogs and pet sit for snuggly, lovely dogs, cats and birds daily, in what is arguably the city with the best weather in the United States (oh, and yes, birds DO snuggle!). While caring and loving animals comes naturally to the staff at Equipaws Pet Services, we do consider this a profession that requires […]

We shared this voluntary recall with our pet sitting and dog walking clients earlier last week when we first heard about it. There is yet another Salmonella contamination scare for dry cat and dog foods, this time from Pro-Pet LLC. These foods were distributed in Florida, so there may be a chance that you or one of your friends have come across them. Please read the FDA’s press release, and spread the word with your […]

Dog walker Flavia was recently a part of a group of volunteers that helped photographer John Bouma from MaxNorman Pet Photography take photos of the homeless dogs and cats at Miami-Dade Animal Services (MDAS). It was such an amazing, inspiring experience to help these animals look great for their portraits. Without John’s help, and the help of other photographers who volunteer their time, the public likely won’t see these dogs and cats, which makes it […]
