We’re not your average dog walkers.  We’re The Monster Minders!  

We have a big name to live up to.  Our clients trust us to care for the most important monster in their life.  We offer them the dependability and personal attention they deserve and expect.  But don’t take our word for it!   See what our clients have to say...

Charlie and Coco

Charlie and Coco

"We have been using Monster Minders for three years. All of our minders have been great but we really love Alex and Pat. They always seem happy to see our two dogs (Coco and Charlie) and more importantly the dogs are happy to see them. Their walks start with lots of tail wagging and end with belly rubs! Alex and Pat know our dogs as well as we do. I know that when they are with them, they are well taken care of getting the exercise and attention they deserve." Jennifer, Society Hill

Ben

Ben

"Ben and I will be moving out of the city. Ben doesn’t know this yet and he will be devastated! I’ll take this opportunity to say how much I really like and appreciate Beth – she takes such good care of Ben and he is glad to see her every time she walks through the door. He is a little shy, and she is very patient and nurturing with him. She has taken the time to know all of his little quirks and it’s obvious that she genuinely cares about him. She is a treasure!" Virginia, Rittenhouse

Charlie

Charlie

"I could go on about how pleased we are with the service from Monster Minders: from the dependability of our "minder" (Rich), who's never missed a walk; to the friendly and super-accommodating owners, Carrie and Lindsay; the ease of using the website to make last-minute changes to our scheduled walks, due to our changing schedules; and the fact that we can always depend on a written account of the day's walk from the daily journal Rich leaves!" David, Passyunk Square

Twinkle Toes

Twinkle Toes

"Our Twinkles is a very large dog with a lot of power and special socialization requirements. Rich performs the perfect blend of keeping Twinkles on point with his training while sensing the correct environments in which to expose him to new situations and people. He also senses when Twinkles needs a high energy walk to burn off some excess energy and when to take it easy on him because he is having a "ruff" day. We couldn't ask for a more perfect blend for him!" Scott, Grad Hospital

Chooch

Chooch

"Matt has been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Our English bulldog has had some serious medical issues in the past and Matt tended to his every need. We have had Matt since the first week we brought "Chooch" home with us. So Matt has even helped us train him when we weren't home. He is also very patient with our stubborn little guy. He cares for our dog like he is his own. We are extremely happy with Matt and how easy Monster Minders is work with." Matt and Amanda, Fitler Square

Spar

Spar

"We are very happy with our service from MM. You are very professional and show that your truly care about the monsters you take care of. A clear example was the fact that when Spar escaped her crate we were immediately notified by a phone call. Beth definitely pays attention to any changes and is great at letting us know. We look forward to reading Beth's notes when in fact its usually the first thing we do! It's great service." Ana, Graduate Hospital

Gemma

Gemma

"I have been using The Monster Minders ever since I moved to Philly 6 yrs ago! I asked a friend who had a dog for a recommendation, and I haven't looked back! The Minders always take the best care of Gemma and leave the sweetest notes. I also love how much they support the local shelters. All of the Minders (especially Pat) are nice people who genuinely love animals and care for your pet as if it was their own!" Katie, Old City

Molly

Molly

"Jon has taken excellent care of Molly for almost a year now. It's great knowing he's there to give her attention and play with her while I'm at work. Seeing he and Molly interact, it's clear that she loves him and looks forward to his visits every day." Paul, Rittenhouse

Carlito and Niko

Carlito and Niko

"Jon has been babysitting my two Havanese for a few years now. As a veterinarian, I work long hours. Jon is punctual, responsible, and most importantly very loving towards my boys. I've occasionally surprised Jon and come home early due to unpredictable on-call hours, and I always catch him in some adorable moment with my boys, who clearly love him. Your service is professional, trustworthy, and very reliable. Our family is fortunate to The Monster Minders as part of our family." Kristin

Jade & Pearl

Jade & Pearl

The Monster Minders have been caring for our dogs for over 9 years, & Erin has been our minder for the last 6. The level of service the Monster Minders provide us is unmatched. They are always flexible and accommodating. We've relied on Erin for daily walks as well as overnight stays in our home. She is dependable, trustworthy, and the notes she leaves us can be quite entertaining! We truly appreciate everything Erin does for us, and it’s obvious that our girls adore her too!" Erinn, Pennsport

Lenny

Lenny

"Jenna is a fantastic Minder! Our Monster, Lenny, loves his walks, even if he doesn't always make it easy for Jenna... he enjoys challenging her with tantrums when he doesn't feel like walking. This is common during rain and when the direction of the walk isn't to his liking - but Jenna perseveres and has worked with us to make sure Monster Lenny gets his exercise. She was able to get Lenny back on track and walking well. Thanks for taking such good care of our Monster!" Jennifer, Grad Hospital

Ginger

Ginger

"I'm writing to reluctantly admit that John, Ginger and I have moved to Brooklyn and didn't get to say farewell! Since we didn't get to do so personally, we'd like to say thank you for your years of caring for our sweet beagle and to say that we're going to miss you!! We so appreciated the professionalism, fun, and very personal attention you bring to your work. If we ever move back,we'll be calling!" Ashley, Bella Vista (Note: they did move back, and Ginger is again in our daily rotation!)

London

London

"The Monster Minders have cared for our dog since we adopted her almost 7 years ago -- Carrie and Lindsay are professional, personable, and always responsive. Our minders have been wonderful, and our current Minder Alan is a gem. He's a lovely and very responsible person, who obviously adores animals. We feel lucky to have found the Monster Minders and to have them caring for our sweet pup." Erica, Bella Vista

Brooklyn

Brooklyn

"Brooklyn is a seven year veteran with the Monster Minders, and absolutely adores spending time with Jen. Jen puts up with his -- and our -- quirks, always leaving our dog happier than she found him. Whether it's a leisurely one hour trip to the Schuylkill or a quick stroll around the park, we have complete confidence in Jen. She keeps our pup safe while exercising his mind and body. No wonder she's one of his favorite people!" Jessica, Rittenhouse

Sebastian & Marlow

Sebastian & Marlow

"Garvin is the best thing that happened to my pups, and I can attest to this very easily: Marlow pees with excitement and showers him with kisses every day (and he lets her) when he comes for their walk. The only other person she does that for is her Grandma. And Sebastian, who is very calm, does a little dance! They are my world, so it makes me so happy to know they're in such good hands!" Kristin, Italian Markets

Cruisey

Cruisey

"It's with mixed emotions that I leave the city, but Cruisey will have a yard and fence and many squirrels and birds to chase. Alas, no chicken bones or hoagies in the snow, but he will always have his memories. I would like to thank you both for taking such good care of me and my special red dogs over the years. Blue was and Cruisey is lucky to be so well cared for by The Monster Minders. And your relationship with them made them better for it." Charlene, Midtown Village

Domino

Domino

"We've worked with The Monster Minders for nearly 3 years. Carrie and Lindsay have been great, as have each of our Minders. Each has been reliable, flexible, and kind. Minder Maida and our Domino grew close quickly and Maida's visits are the highlight of Domino's day. I've recommended The Monster Minders to several friends. Thanks for everything!" Diane & Steve, Society Hill

Rosie (and Salty)

Rosie (and Salty)

"We have been using Monster Minders for 5 years, and they are truly the best that a dog walking service can offer. Our minder, Matt, is totally reliable, punctual, and most importantly, the dogs love him. We can always rely on him to take great care of our dogs. One of our dogs has some behavioral issues and Matt has done a great job working with us and him to get them straightened out! We would recommend Monster Minders to anyone without hesitation." Abby - Naval Square

Rosie

Rosie

"Our Monster Minder Nikki has been with our English bulldog Rosie since she was a puppy and it feels like she is part of the family! Rosie can be very stubborn and as easy to move as a sack of bricks - and Nikki always finds a way to get her strolling down the street. Rosie loves her more than anything which can been seen in the giant butt wiggle and dance she does every time Nikki comes for her! We are so happy with our Monster Minders experience!" Kelsey, Point Breeze

Gracie

Gracie

“I want to let you know that I have taken a new job in Boston and will moving up there at the end of this month.  Unfortunately, this means I will no longer need for Sarah to walk Gracie.  I want to thank you, Lindsay, and particularly Sarah for all of the great work you guys have done for Gracie over the past few years.  It was always great to know that Gracie was safe and in good hands.  I just hope I can find a dog walker in Boston that is half as good as you all.” Phil, Old City

Starti

Starti

“Starti has never been happier now that he’s being taken care of daily by The Monster Minders. A nice note is left every day describing his adventures with The Minders. This is much more pleasant than what we would sometimes come home to before Lindsay and Carrie came into Starti’s world!” Seth and Shari, Bella Vista

Buddy

Buddy

"We love the Monster Minders! They treat Buddy, our "enthusiastic" little monster like he is their own. Buddy goes crazy over skateboarders, bikes and other dogs--which we know makes walking him in the city a real challenge! But, they give us a report after every walk and it always says something positive about Buddy--we don't really believe it, but its very sweet!" Nancy, Bella Vista

Griz

Griz

"I feel bad I can't respond a lot to her notes but they are always cute and full of fun details. We chuckle when we read them because she understands Griz's mannerisms perfectly. I know Griz is a happy dog with her walks because he's so calm and relaxed when we get home that we have to go find him curled up under the bed. One day, she even cleaned up his regurgitated dog food which I felt was above and beyond the call of duty. She really is great!" Caitlin, Bella Vista

Dali

Dali

"Matt is amazing! He is always very attentive and willing to go the extra mile for Dali. He's also an amazing artist and his notes frequently include the best and most entertaining cartoon accounts of his walks with Dali. It's one of my favorite things! He's also given us a beautiful drawing of Dali as a Settler of Catan that we will cherish always. We could not recommend Matty enough. I think Dali might like him more than she likes us!" Elizabeth -Fitler Square

Zoey

Zoey

"The Monster Minders are fabulous! I recently moved to the area and feel so lucky to have found such genuine, trustworthy dog walkers. Carrie and Lindsey are incredibly welcoming and really could not make the entire experience any easier. Our Minder, Kate, is wonderful and reliable…and has quickly become Zoey’s best friend. I may be Monster Minders newest client, but I know a good thing when I found it. Thank you for making my life easier!" Jessica, Rittenhouse

Lucy

Lucy

"The whole experience from setting up the walk, to meeting the walker, to getting payment setup were super easy. Lindsay and Jenna came out and met with Lucy and she instantly fell in love with them. Lucy thoroughly enjoys her walks with Jenna and loves getting to go out during the day. Jenna leaves great notes after each walk to let me know how Lucy did. I highly recommend Monster Minders to anyone thinking about getting a walker!" Christopher - Rittenhouse

Hugo

Hugo

"We have been using Monster Minders for 4 years. We have loved all of Hugo's walkers and Miss Nikki has truly been outstanding with our boy. It is so nice to feel secure knowing that Hugo is taken care of while we are at work. Nikki has become an extension of our family. Thank you!" Stephanie - Passyunk Square

Gidget

Gidget

"We've taken to calling Alan, "Uncle Alan," because he is officially a part of Gidget's family-- she sees him every day! He takes care of our girl and always leaves us nice notes about her outings. We know that our pup gets love and exercise every day and we couldn't be more grateful for that. Thanks, Alan and The Monster Minders!" Kimber - Bella Vista

Beau

Beau

"Chrissy and Beau have quickly become best friends, and I look forward to reading Chrissy's note when I get home about the highlights of their walk. Beau usually takes a while to warm up to people, and Chrissy was patient with him and eased him out of his shell and now he greets her with tail wags and kisses. Carrie and the rest of the team respond to emails super fast and the website's scheduling is easy to use and convenient." Lindsay - Wash Sq West

Buddy

Buddy

"The MM have made our move to a new city seamless, starting with Lindsay taking on Buddy right away when no other Minder had room in their schedule (these Minders are rightfully popular!). But now our permanent Minder Steph takes amazing care of him. I'm never worried about him during the day. She knows his routine and habits as well as I do! I am convinced The Minders run a tighter ship than I do! The Minders make my life so easy. I can't think of a better solution for Bud man!" Celia - Wash Sq

Nellie

Nellie

"Monster Minders has been a part of our dog Nellie's life since we adopted her 3 years ago. In that time, we've had a chance to work with several fantastic Minders. Nikki is our current walker and I truly believe she loves Nellie just as much we do. We look forward to reading the notes she leaves about Nellie's adventures during each walk and always feel confident she is in capable and loving hands. We cannot say enough good things about Nikki and the rest of the MM team!" Katie, Passyunk

Oliver (and Sasha)

Oliver (and Sasha)

"You know that phrase, "helicopter parent"? That's the approach my husband and I take with our dogs. They are the center of our world, and when Matty is with them, we're confident they're the center of his, too. He's dependable and doesn't flinch when I leave him two-page notes outlining our pups' latest shenanigans. Matty is not allowed to retire until our family either stops adopting dogs or moves out of Philly! (And when he needs a day off, the other Minders are impressive too.)" Karen

Bindi

Bindi

"We love Alex! She writes the best notes every day with fun details of the daily adventure. She sums up Bindi's mannerisms perfectly and we can tell she loves her just as much as we do!" Rhea and Chris - Society Hill

Lucky

Lucky

"Here's the thing: Lucky loves Jenna, our Monster Minder. Jenna loves Lucky. She is there for him when he needs her. There are no strings attached--well an occasional treat--but definitely no strings. It is pure love. And that's why we love Monster Minders!" Barbara - Rittenhouse

Quincy

Quincy

"I’ve been using The Monster Minders for over 6 years now. Remarkably, he has had the same Minder, Erin, since Day One. I never really expected such staffing consistency, but staff retention and reliability are two key aspects that make MM a fantastic service. Erin knows and accommodates Quincy’s dislike of other pups and always keeps him safe. I know Quincy is in good hands with Erin. Also, MM has always been able and willing to accommodate changes in my schedule!" Robin - Rittenhouse

Henry (and Josephine)

Henry (and Josephine)

"It is about 4 years that I have been using Monster Minders and I don't know what I would do without them!!! My dogs have loved every minder ! I have felt comfortable letting them in my home without me there-- they in many ways are part of my family and I know my dogs feel that way!!! Thank you Monster Minders!!!!! Caroline - Rittenhouse Square

Stella

Stella

"Thanks for everything Carrie. Your business model is outstanding! The service is incredibly personalized and fantastic. You have set up a great company that services many but makes you feel like you are the only customer!” Rinad, Washington Square

Bertie

Bertie

"Minders Genevieve and Kate have both been absolutely phenomenal with Bertie. On days when I work from home I get to see Bertie's full on but-wiggling joy when a Minder walks in, and it is totally heart-warming. I also really appreciate the notes we get after every walk--both Minders are great writers, too!" Tamar, Graduate Hospital

Pup (and Jane)

Pup (and Jane)

"Lindsay and our Minder Rich met with me and our dogs. We had a really thorough discussion about our monsters and their needs. Rich has been taking care of our pups through a really rough patch health-wise for our older dog, and did an amazing job. We always come home to detailed (and funny!) notes about how their daily walk went, and feel confident that our older dog was getting his medication & care as needed. Can't say enough good things about the owners and our Minder." Elizabeth, P. Square

Ryker (and Bailey)

Ryker (and Bailey)

"Bailey's a big dude and he's more than a little leash aggressive to other dogs. Nikki has worked with him phenomenally well since day one. She has a rapport with him and he loves her intensely. He loves the routine and he walks exponentially better when she takes the reins. Our other dog, Ryker, loves dogs but is scared of people. Nikki walks our boys skillfully meets both of their needs. Her genuine love of her charges is evident every single day." Shan Passyunk Sqaure

Moose (and Jen)

Moose (and Jen)

"Moose is a kind-hearted but slow moving kind of guy with specific preferences, so when Jen came into our lives we were thrilled to see how he responded to her patient nature. Jen always goes out of her way to make sure that he gets the most of his walk, and we love hearing about their adventures. We're also thrilled at the flexibility and friendliness she has exhibited in the past year as we welcomed our son and learned to juggle schedules! Thank you for all you do!" Katharine, Grad Hosp

Kemble

Kemble

"Jack and I (and Kemble) are all extremely satisfied with your service.  We also really appreciate being able to call last minute to schedule additional walks.  Our schedules can be a bit hectic so it's nice to know that in a pinch, we can count on you guys. Everything through Monster Minders has been great and I'm spreading the word about your service to anyone who might be interested." Jennifer, Washington Square

Oliver

Oliver

"We love our Minder, Garvin, and the whole Monster Minders gang. Garvin and Oliver explore the neighborhood, and we love coming home to the notes that tell us about their adventures. Also, the HQ team is so responsive - they're always willing to help with schedules and changes!" Erin - Bella Vista

Noodle

Noodle

"The Monster Minders are fantastic! Greg has been super patient with Noodle who can be very opinionated about wanting to walk. Carrie and the administrative staff are always quick to respond and I’ve never had an issue scheduling the occasional weekend visit. They truly care about their clients – Carrie was quick to offer encouragement and guidance when I let her know Noodle began having seizures. It is a comfort to have a team I trust in my home and with my buddy." Amy - Passyunk Square

Henry

Henry

"Henry LOVES his walks with Alan, and I love getting home to little notes telling me how much fun they had! Henry can be a little ball of energy and I appreciate that Alan reinforces manners when they meet friends on his walks." Amanda - Washington Square West

Sugar

Sugar

"Frank and I feel so much more at ease while we are at work knowing Sugar is being walked and tended to during the day. We wish we looked into Monster Minders sooner! We couldn't be happier with the care that Alan provides. I know Alan genuinely cares for Sugar like one of his own. The online scheduling capability is quick and easy. The entire process has been nothing but flawless. Thank you Carrie, Lindsay, Alan and the rest of the Monster Minders!" Frank and Jillian, Italian Market

Lucy

Lucy

"Rich is extremely reliable. He always locks both locks, puts the leash in the right spot, and gives Lucy goose drops! And he makes our pup's day every time he stops by!" Michele, Passyunk Square

Bella

Bella

"Pat has been fantastic. He gives us details from every walk & Bella goes absolutely nuts every time she sees him. Most importantly, he & the entire Monster Minders team really care about Bella. She got very sick a few weeks ago and needed an emergency vet visit. Pat called to check on her, even the Minder office reached out to see if they could do anything. They are extremely responsive, accommodating & trustworthy, I've already recommended them to friends and family." Stephanie - Queen Village

Rebel

Rebel

"I can’t say enough great things about our minder, Steph. Rebel just adores her and I know he’s in good hands and that she genuinely cares about him. She always leaves the best notes, so sweet and descriptive so I know exactly where they went that day and what happened in their travels. She’ll even make time after their walk to play fetch with him at home, which is his favourite thing in the world to do!" Teresa - Society Hill

Pep Pep

Pep Pep

"We love Monster Minders! Rich has been our walker for over a year now, and he’s just awesome! Not only does he do a great job with our pup, but he cares so much that he stayed on as our walker despite our move to a totally different neighborhood. The whole Monster Minders team is caring, attentive, accessible, and they are all really great people – we’d be lost without them!" Jess - Newbold

Bo

Bo

After moving to New Orleans: "We met our new dog walker yesterday, we told her that there are some pretty big shoes left to fill. I can’t say enough wonderful things about you guys. You have truly been so great with Bo and such a help to me. If you ever find yourselves branching out to NOLA, I will be your biggest fan! All the best to you guys!" Kathy, Center City

Oliver

Oliver

“I am SO surprised at how different Oliver was on Wednesday! It was everything I needed out of this. I was able to come home a little later and when I did come home he was calm and not in immediate need of a lot of activity. It was really nice. Your notes are great! It was reassuring to see that Oliver has behaved nicely for her and that he was a gentleman on his walks. I knew I would be happy with The Monster Minders but I did not know I would be as happy as I am.” Melanie, Passyunk Sq

Jazzy

Jazzy

"Thank you so very much for the wonderful business that is the Monster Minders! I am so impressed with you guys and have often wished you would go into the human child care business as well. Thank you for ensuring that my best girl was always taken care of when we were at work or away. Three years and 2 kids later -- I don't think we could have done it without your reliable services for our treasured canine family member!" Stacey, Queen Village

Daisy

Daisy

"You and your dog walkers have been a pleasure to work with the last four years. I'm constantly impressed by your responsiveness, flexibility, and great customer service. I've always been at ease trusting my little old lady to you and your Minders." Krystal, Bella Vista

Lola

Lola

"Jon is doing a great job. I absolutely love that if I am at work and thinking about Lola I can check online. Both his notes online and written notes make me smile so much! I feel so much better leaving her on long days when I can tell her that her boyfriend (Jon) will be coming by later to visit her :) I'm so happy I found you guys!" Jill, Graduate Hospital

Bailey

Bailey

"My mom is busy these days with school & she doesn't have as much time to take me for long walks. It was pretty ruff before my daily walks; no chasing squirrels, no garbage sniffing, and my social life & reputation were suffering. Not anymore! I still look forward to mom coming home, but my afternoon strolls are the highlight of my day! In fact sometimes my mom catches me downstairs waiting for Alan to arrive.... only to realize that it is the weekend and I have to wait until Monday to see him."

Danny

Danny

"Minder Erin is absolutely the best walker we've ever worked with and she's been helping us for a number of years now. Our dog truly loves her and knows that she's always looking out for him. Since he's a special-needs pet this is particularly important to us since he can't be walked by just anyone. Thank you, Erin, for all of your thoughtful attention and thank you, Monster Minders, for selecting the best and most caring people." Steve, Queen Village

Jack

Jack

"I cannot say enough about Minder Erin. I consider her part of our family. She always goes above and beyond for our dog Jack and our seven cats (yep...seven!). The other day my husband was driving up right in front of our house as Jack and Erin were just about to go into the house after their walk. As Jack sat down waiting to go inside, my husband saw her lean over over and kiss him on the head. This isn't just a job for Erin, she truly cares for the animals and it shows!" Clare, Queen Village

Arthur

Arthur

"Jenna has been walking Arthur since March 2014. She is absolutely fantastic and he loves her. She leaves the most wonderful notes every day describing her walks with him, how he reacts to his surroundings and how excited he gets when he meets his friends on the street. One of the best parts of my day is coming home to my little monster and then reading Jenna's descriptions of his daily outings which make me feel like I was there with them." Leonie, Rittenhouse

Darla

Darla

"We love our Monster Minder Nikki. Darla was a rescue and sometimes has trust issues but I can tell by the way she acts when she sees Nikki that she feels completely safe and at ease with her; Nikki is not just her walker but her friend. Even the cats get some cuddles too when Nikki comes by. I’m so grateful to have this peace of mind, thank you for all you guys do!" Eden, Passyunk Square

Bean

Bean

"Bean - our 40lbs pittie / basset hound mix - absolutely loves his walks with Alan!! And we love the daily notes that we get from Alan post walk - it always sounds like they've had a blast together. In terms of scheduling and logistics, the whole Monster Minders team is a joy to work with. They always respond immediately to requests and are very willing to help out with longer walks or weekend walks when I need to travel." Stacy, Passuynk Square

Obi

Obi

“We just want to thank you for taking such good care of Obi for the last two years. He will miss you very much! We entrusted you to come into our home and you took great care of our monster. You often went above and beyond in caring for him. You have cleaned up some big messes and have often given us great advice. We looked forward to the notes everyday! If we are ever back in Philly again, we will call on no one else but you!" Moyna, Society Hill

Houston and Hennessy

Houston and Hennessy

“I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate everything that Leslie does for my family. She is amazing and it doesn't go unnoticed. I can't tell you how happy I am to know that she is taking care of them...Oh  and her notes are awesome! They make me smile and laugh out loud every time :)  In all the years that I have had walkers (with other services) I have never had one that compares to you guys!  Just wanted to say thanks for the fabulous, over the top service!” Pamela, Old City

Milo

Milo

"Everything with Greg is great. We LOVE him and he is so incredibly nice to Milo. Milo actually whispered in my ear that Greg is one of his best friends." Kelly, Center City

Barley

Barley

"Chrissy is great -- I feel confident that she's taking great care of him. Barley's built for comfort, not speed (his back legs are bad, despite his young age), but he's never sore or stiff when I get home on Wednesdays, which happens when he's over-worked. Chrissy seems to exercise him within his limits. Overall, if I was the Roger Ebert of dog walking services, I'd give the Monster Minders a raving review." - Kara, Point Breeze

Dreidel

Dreidel

"We love Jenna, we love Beth when she fills in for Jenna, and we love how easy you guys make it for us to add/cancel/change a walk. Since I've been home during the day the past two weeks, it's especially nice to see how excited Dreidel is when Jenna shows up - we can tell she really looks forward to her afternoon walks." Julie, Fitler Square

Macey

Macey

“Carrie and Lindsay are wonderful to Macey. She looks forward to her walks with them and gives them big kisses when she sees them around the neighborhood. Macey has many quirks (like staring people down on the street, pulling your arm out of your socket when she sees a squirrel, chewing on trees, etc), and Carrie and Lindsay always tell me about them in their notes. I look so forward to reading them when I come home from a long day!” Ashley, Washington Square

Franklin

Franklin

"It means a lot to me to have you and your team in my and Franklin's life. I literally don't know if I'd be able to have solace during the day at work without knowing he's being taken care of so amazingly. Seriously, I appreciate all that you guys do. It pays for itself in spades." Megan, Queen Village

Gracie

Gracie

"Gracie and I want to thank you for another year of love and attention you have showered on my girl. The Monster Minders are the best - I don’t need a magazine to tell me! We look forward to years together.” Bob, Old City (Client Since 2005)

Bodie

Bodie

“Bodie LOVES his Minder Erin like family, and so do we.  I have complete confidence in the Monster Minders to handle our very energetic and rambunctious guy, and am so glad we use them.  It puts my mind at ease when I'm work, as well as when we travel and Bodie gets to have special "Midnight Malarky" time with Erin. Couldn't be more satisfied!” Margot, Washington Square West

Madison

Madison

"I wanted to let you guys know how happy Madison and I are.  I have tried all of the dog walking services and you guys are by far the best. Madison is always in good spirits and relaxed when I return home.  I also love reading the notes about her "adventures" while I am gone.  I am so happy to have found such a reliable, professional company and Madison is happy to have found her new best friend." Liz, Graduate Hospital

Charley

Charley

“We are so thrilled with The Monster Minders. It is like having our own family members care for Charley. They are completely dependable, and it really feels like it is more than a business for them - it is a passion and love of all of our monsters that is the driving force behind their commitment. We feel so lucky to have found them!" Eliza and Chad, Queen Village

Preston and Percy

Preston and Percy

“They are wonderful with dogs, always quick to call back, and are flexible in scheduling times. They leave notes after each walk to inform how the dogs behaved and what they experienced. They’re fully insured and professional, but friendly. Their rates are inexpensive and they’re the best dog walkers we’ve used!” Tom and Julie, Bella Vista (From Angie’s List)

Cynthia

Cynthia

“Just know that all of us who love our pets as family are deeply appreciative of the wonderful almost magical effect you have on making our lives better! I mean that from my heart.” Arthur, Washington Square West

Monte

Monte

"Jen is absolutely amazing! It's so nice not to have to worry about Monte during the day. I'm not sure if I shared with you, but a couple of months back I had some friends in town who were at the apartment when Jen came by and they said they had never seen Monte get so excited about seeing someone besides me. I know he loves her!!! Super happy with the Monster Minders. It has made our transition to the city life so much easier!" Sarah, Rittenhouse

Mo

Mo

“Matt has been great.  Mo seems to really like him, foremost.  And it's obvious that Matt really likes Mo.  His notes cover all the bases, plus let us know of anything unusual or important.  They're also usually really funny & clever.  We really like Matt and appreciate how much he (and your company) cares.  Thanks for checking in, today is the perfect example of why we tell our friends about you!” Evan, Fitler Square

Deacon

Deacon

"You are always really responsive and supportive...even when I leave my hair straightener on and ask for you guys to have someone stop by to make sure it's off and Deacon is safe! You are absolutely living up to my every expectation and I am so thankful for such a great company.  When I recommend The Monster Minders (to anyone and everyone!!) it is 50% because of how you manage the company, and 50% on how amazing your walkers are!" Jen, Fitler Square

“Thank you for being Sophie’s new best friend! My husband and I look forward to coming home and spending time with our ‘bundle of energy’ knowing that she’s had a good time on her walk with you. Thank you also for being so accommodating when it comes to our crazy and last minute schedule. We are so exited to have found you and it sets our mind at ease knowing she’s in such good hands. As I type this she’s snoozing (and snoring) at my feet...Thanks to you!” Liz, Passyunk Sq

Gus-Man

Gus-Man

“My pup and I have roamed the country in the last 11 years, and experienced countless dog walking services. By far, The Monster Minders are the very best -- attentive, accommodating, and offering the same level of TLC that I give to my own monster! Carrie and Lindsay are responsive and responsible. Thanks for an excellent five years of service!” Mitzi, Old City

Cheyenne

Cheyenne

“Matt has done this incredible job w/ Cheyenne and her barking at dogs on the street.  It's even carried over to how she is at home too.  He really has done this wonderful job!!  We can't believe how good she's doing!! Please tell Matt we can't thank him enough for all his efforts --(cause we know it ain't all that easy!!)” Lynne, Passyunk Square

Sophie

Sophie

“Everything has been great!  We're noticing a definite difference in Sophie -- she is much more relaxed when we get home at the end of the day, so she is really enjoying her midday walks.  I've also noticed that she's getting much better at walking on her leash (she tends to walk a few yards and then park herself on the ground, and lately she's been walking much further and better), which I can only guess is due to the additional practice she gets with you guys!" Mike, Naval Square

Macey

Macey

"Unfortunately am leaving the Philly area and moving back to Boston. It will hard to find another service that does everything your group does. I honestly  never thought I would be such a fanatic about my dog but maybe there is a bit of guilt on my part that I have such a big dog that loves to run and play and she lives in a city and is kept inside so much of the day. Sarah and your entire group have just been incredible. It is certainly more than a dog walking experience." Mark, Old City

Otis

Otis

"Everything is going great with Rich, we've been communicating through notes, and in person the couple times my office was closed abruptly. I can tell Otis and Rich have become best pals and can already see the difference in Otis's energy levels and his grasping the concept of leash walking. He even started using the Stairs! That's huge because the little guy is getting huge!" Geoff, Graduate Hospital

Lola and Olive

Lola and Olive

"We are very happy with Garvin. He takes excellent care of the girls and they love him. We feel extremely lucky to have Garvin in our lives. The same can be said for Monster Minders. You guys are wonderful. We have no complaints or concerns. Keep up the excellent work!" Erin, Washington Square West

Macy

Macy

"It gives us great peace of mind to know that Jenna is checking on our girl -- because I know she understands and cares for her as though Macy were her own! I hope your ears have been burning because we've been singing Monster Minders' praises to friends who are relocating to Philly and either have or are planning to get a dog! Our lives couldn't function without you guys!" Erin, Graduate Hospital

Atticus

Atticus

"I am beyond thrilled with Pat and your company. Everything has been perfect. Atticus loves him, he loves Atticus. It is so nice not to feel the guilt of leaving him in his crate all day and knowing that I can rely on Pat to be there and take good care of him. I really get the sense that Pat genuinely cares for Atticus. One of my neighbors told me this morning that he sees that he sees them out and about and it looks like they are having a great time! Liz, Old City

Baxter

Baxter

"You and your team have always made us feel like you care for Baxter like you would your own pup and I don't think we'll ever be able to find another group of people that are so professional and truly love our little monster. Alicia has been absolutely incredible to work with, and we know Baxter loves her. Thanks again to you and your team for providing such an amazing service to us for the last few years.” Morgan, Queen Village

Cricket

Cricket

I have nothing but good things to say about April and my overall experience with the service. The Monster Minders is a wonderful company and I've already made recommendations to several of my friends. Everything about the company, from the initial meeting to the services and payment process seems to be conducted with great professionalism and integrity. Thank you for everything you provide and for making life easy for a single, working mom of two little monsters.” Kelly, Washington Square

Maxie

Maxie

“Thanks guys, I can't tell you what a major support you have been. You have allowed me to take on new responsibilities knowing that Maxie is getting the walks and attention! You have always been flexible with my schedule. It’s great knowing that someone I can trust and who knows Maxie’s routine is nearby. I can call you if needed for additional walking or sitting anytime! The Monster Minders allows me to have Maxie here in the city, and she gets the exercise she needs!" Mike, Wash Sq.

Lulu

Lulu

“It’s no secret Lulu loves spending quality time with you both, and that she always comes home so satisfied. We’re so grateful that you have taken such time and care to really get to know her, her weird idiosyncrasies, and most especially, her exhaustive list of allergy issues. You treat her like your own, and she loves you back. Jason and I really can’t tell you how much that means to us. As always, thank you & thank you.” Jade & Jason - Queen Village

Wilson

Wilson

“I truly couldn't be any happier!! It takes so much stress off my shoulders knowing Wilson is cared for during the day! He's always so happy when I get home from work because he loves his daily walks. I appreciate you guys so much! It's great being able to go online during the day to see all is well & my little monster hasn't caused any trouble! Thank you sooo much for everything!! I don't know how I would get through the work week without you guys.” Morgan, Queen Village

Lulu

Lulu

"I just wanted to touch base and let you know that Pat & Genevieve are wonderful so far. They leave me the sweetest notes, and seem to just love Lu. Ok, so I'm sure they're supposed to make me feel like my dog is the best in the whole world, but it's clearly working." Jen, Washington Square West

Jade and Pearl

Jade and Pearl

“You really are the best service around -- dog walking or anything else. Your dependability and trustworthiness is amazing, not to mention that you are such fantastic caregivers. I really appreciate all that you do for us, and I know my girls love you too. You guys do an excellent job. In fact, I wish everyone as as reliable and easy to work with as you!" Erinn, Pennsport

Hendrix

Hendrix

Peace of mind is a beautiful thing. We have been so fortunate to work with Jenna, Jen and the whole team. Your service is so seamless and easy to use. I like being able to see a little note online each day. Your website makes things really easy. It's also great to know that I can email with a question and will get a quick and helpful response. You have totally spoiled us and ruined us for any other dog walking service!!" Stephanie, Fitler Square

Riley

Riley

“Carrie and Lindsay are like the family I never see. We leave each other notes & messages, but never seem to be in the same place at the same time. And you feel bad. But it turns out, that’s exactly what they’re there for: to be at your house when you’re not and be with your monster when you’re not. Because that’s what family does. Asking Carrie and Lindsay to be a part of my and Riley’s family is one of the BEST choices I’ve made in a long time!" Aileen - Washington Square

Riley

Riley

“We are thrilled with Erin! She clearly loves our pets. She keeps us well-informed of how they're doing on each of her visits and helps us out with Riley's training as needed. We love your service as well. We take every opportunity to recommend you. Previously, I used the other big pet care service and constantly had new walkers. We feel much better knowing that it will always be Erin, except on the very rare occasion that she needs a well-deserved day off!" Joanna, Queen Village

Bodhi

Bodhi

“I'm not sure what you are doing with Bodhi, however, I hope you never stop.  It has already taken a lot of stress off of me.  I’ve tried a dog walker and a day care and both didn’t work out, and really optimistic I've found the right people to look after my little girl while I am away.  Everything from the communication, daily notes, website/convenience, along with your availability and professionalism are exceeding my very high expectations." Tony, Queen Village

Laika

Laika

"I want to take a minute to let you know how much we appreciate Alan. He leaves the most wonderful, detailed notes about his adventures with Laika and it seems that they are clearly the bestest of friends. Thank you for always bringing wonderful people into Laika's life!" Michelle, Passyunk Square

Dash

Dash

"I wouldn't leave my pets with anyone else! Lindsay, Carrie and their team are so caring, dedicated, friendly and helpful. My other dog-owner friends have commented on how great my Lindsay is when they run into him on their walks. I love the personal service and their rates are excellent.” Rebecca, Washington Square (Creator of www.ThePhillyDog.com)

Buster n' Spike

Buster n' Spike

“We wouldn’t want anyone else minding our monsters! Carrie and Lindsay take such great care of Buster and Spike - and we love reading about what they did on their walks. We were thinking about moving to the other end of the city and actually stayed in our neighborhood so we wouldn’t need to find new dog walkers!” Kristen, Passyunk Square

Frankie

Frankie

"Jen always writes a sweet story about Frankie's adventures - it's such a relief to come home knowing he not only did his business, but had a fun time while I was away. Plus, reading her notes is like a little pick-me-up at the end of my long days!" Gwen, Rittenhouse

Penny

Penny

"We had issues with other dog walking companies in the past, but Rich and the Monster Minders have finally given us peace of mind. Not only do we know exactly who will be taking care of our girls, but we can really tell that Rich cares about our dogs. And Izzy and Penny love him! He leaves us the most entertaining notes every day, and we really get a sense of how the dogs are doing. We don't know what we would do without you!" Shannon, Hawthorn

Coastal

Coastal

"I was so nervous moving to a new city with a then puppy, but with your services and Nikki and Jenna's help you made Philly a more than pleasurable place for us. Your help and our trust in your services, not worrying about Coastal during the day because we knew he was in the best and most consistent hands possible, truly made our life in Philadelphia easier. We couldn't rave about you guys more! It's been a very happy, stess-free 2 years with you guys." Gabby, Center City

Oscar

Oscar

“Nikki is absolutely wonderful.  We've been fortunate to be home a few times when she's come in and Oscar loses his mind with joy whenever she shows up.  Ruth and I love reading her daily notes to see how he's progressing -- plus they're pretty funny.  She's been great reinforcing our training techniques and making sure he doesn't run amok.  Your customer service is wonderful.  You guys were extraordinarily helpful when we first got him and it gave us great peace of mind." Josh, Society Hill

Baloo

Baloo

“Baloo loves her Minder and I think the obsession is mutual.  I love having someone who appreciates Baloo's spirit and personality as a part of her extended family.  It really means the world to me to have someone aware of her sneaky street eating ways and her personality as it concerns other dogs, and just her general loveliness. :-)  I know what horrible bias I bring to any assessment of Baloo but I love that you like her too.” Dalmita, Old City

Bernie

Bernie

“I am so sorry to say that Bernie and the rest of us will be moving to the DC area at the end of the month.  I've taken a new job that's based there.  I can't imagine what we -- or Bernie -- will do without you.  Thank you so much for taking the best care of Bernie for the past 5 years.  We've always known she was loved when she was with you. In the 9+ years I've had Bernie, I've never had anyone who took as good care of her as the two of you.  Thank you for everything.” Mike, Italian Markets

Jack

Jack

"You have no idea how much your unconditional support means to us and our furry family. Thanks for all that you do, from walking to our dogs to playing locksmith, to playing doctor to our cats. It's such a comfort knowing that our animals are in such great care. Words can't express what you guys do for us. We'll continue to offer our highest recommendation of you whenever we get the chance. Again, thanks so much." Megan, Passyunk Square

Ted

Ted

“You were easy to get a hold of when we ran into a jam with our travel plans. Thanks for being so understanding and taking fabulous care of Ted. You took care of him like he was your own! Thanks!” Dave, Bella Vista (Ted was our very first client back in 2005.)

Riley

Riley

“Kristi is awesome, and I love her dearly.  I can tell by her notes that she just loves what she does and I'm extremely happy with her.  In fact, I've been meaning to email you to tell you that she's pretty much the cutest ever. As for you guys, I love you all too. Knowing that you are always very responsive to my emails (even/esp on weekends), insured, and I have a happy, healthy furrball when I get home makes it worth every penny.” Bridget, Bella Vista

Molly

Molly

“The Monster Minders have been the best investment we have ever made for our Molly. We look forward to the notes they leave us about Molly’s adventures. Leaving the care of our dog with Carrie and Lindsay is like leaving her with family." Keith, Bella Vista

Abba

Abba

“We love the Monster Minders! They've been walking our dog for almost two years, since she was a puppy, and have provided fantastic, above and beyond service from day one.  They're extremely professional, and obviously dedicated to what they do - so you just know your pet is getting all the attention and affection you would want.  I would absolutely recommend them.” Silvina and Elisabeth, Queen Village

Bobby

Bobby

“I can't begin to tell you how thrilled we are with Monster Minders, and specifically with Matt. If I happen to be home when he comes to get Maggie & Bobby, the dogs jump all over him with hugs and kisses, which shows me how much love he shows them every day.  His notes are witty and funny and I have full trust in him in our home. Your website is easy to use, and the entire process is very convenient.  Overall I have nothing but positive words to say about our experience." Kristen, Rittenhouse

Zarah

Zarah

“It will be so hard not to have The Monster Minders with us in Seattle. I wish we could take you with us. Zarah loves you. Knowing she was with you made leaving her everyday so much easier. I seriously don’t know what we are going to do without you. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the wonderful care you have taken with Zarah. We will miss you!” Carly, Washington Square

Wiley

Wiley

“Carrie and Lindsay have been so incredibly accommodating, reliable and sweet when it comes to working with them. My dog Wiley is incredibly fearful of strangers, especially men. They took as much time was needed to work with Wiley and allow him to get used to them. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog walker!" Missy and Clay, Pennsport

Bently and Duke

Bently and Duke

“The Monster Minders are truly a blessing for all of us pet moms and dads. Our pets are a part of the family, and whether it’s an hour visit or an entire weekend, you can have the confidence and peace of mind knowing that your pets are receiving the best care and quality attention they need and deserve. No worries here! We know that Bentley and Duke are in great hands. We are absolutely thrilled that we found The Monster Minders!” Laini, Bella Vista

Mambo

Mambo

“We wanted to let you guys know that for better or for worse, moving to the burbs. While we're excited about many aspects of this, we are NOT excited to leave the services of Monster Minders. You guys are truly (TRULY) tremendous. You run a truly top-notch business. We'll really miss you guys.  You all have been a model of professionalism and dedication, and we are having trouble accepting that we'll have to trust Mambo with someone else soon!" Bethany, Passyunk Square
