Ethical Dog Walking & Pet Care
Just Walk is a worker-owned business providing dog walking services in Washington D.C. We believe dignity ought to have a central place in pet care for animals, for clients, and for workers.
If you ask us, we’ll tell you that we’re very good at what we do, and we know that our clients will tell you the same. But, for us, that’s simply not enough. We founded Just Walk with the understanding that almost anyone is capable of providing the labor necessary to complete our day-to-day tasks, but that it’s another thing entirely to be a trustworthy and reliable member of a companion animal’s extended family.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING…
Just walk is pretty much perfect. From a business perspective, they are prompt, professional, utterly competent, and fairly priced. They know about dog health issues, are always attentive, and accommodate my occasional schedule changes. Beyond this, they are amazingly caring committed people: caring about our dogs, about the community, about the world. We use them for regular walks, homestays when we are out of town, and general advice as our pups age. – Mark
Meg and Just Walk are a phenomenal bunch! I’ve been entrusting my 10 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Tor, to Meg’s care for almost five years and couldn’t be happier. Meg really goes the extra mile and never hesitates to help out when needed. She’s incredibly patient and caring and has really worked to cultivate a personal relationship with Tor who has embraced her as part of his family. She’s always at the ready and never complains when I need to add walks or travel last minute and the rare time she’s not available, the Just Walk team tries hard to step up to the plate and make sure Tor gets the consistent care he’s used to. – Crystal
Meg has been walking our dog for about four years now, and we have been nothing but happy people — and an incredibly happy dog. She’s communicative about schedules, punctual and helpful with training the dog, who’s better behaved for her than anyone else, I think. She truly loves dogs more than anyone I’ve ever met, and has adjusted our dog’s walks and time out based on what she needs. Meg helped keep our dog sane during human health problems at our house that were causing the dog anxiety. Everyone at Just Walk who we’ve met is the same — professional, reliable, helpful and loving to the animals. – Terri
As someone who spends most of her work life traveling, people always ask me – “Who cares for your dog while you’re on the road?” My answer is not just his dog walker, but his second family. The Just Walk team is an incredibly caring and kind group, and most importantly, one who I trust 100% with my furry family member. Their flexibility and passion for what they do puts me at ease while I’m on the road. Meg and the team are simply the best. –Amanda
