Local, Minority-Owned Hot Diggity! Dog Walking and Pet Sitting is Revolutionizing Pet Care

PORTLAND, Ore., 2017-Sep-25 — /EPR Network/ — Hot Diggity! Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Services, Portland’s premier pet care choice and the nation’s only dog walking and pet sitting company to offer guaranteed availability, is celebrating 16 years of award winning service! This summer we were honored to receive Willamette Week’s Best of Portland award for Best Dog Walkers. In order to thank the pets (and their people) in Portland who have helped build the company, which now includes over 50 full- and part-time pet sitters, Hot Diggity! is sending gift certificates to all of the businesses that help support their clients – from apartments to real estate agents to pet stores and vets. Even pet-friendly restaurants and hotels are invited to give these certificates to their clients so they can be assured both two and four-legged guests receive the exceptional care they can rely on.

“We want to change the face of the industry in a way that supports the needs of the modern pet owning family,” says A Hunter Sunrise, founder of Hot Diggity! and Portland native. “And we want to say thank you. It’s a big commitment to accept pets in commercial spaces, and we’re here to work with these businesses and make their jobs a little easier.”

Hot Diggity! is one of few pet care company that has a real-time app and a fully transparent client-facing portal for messaging and sharing photos during the day or while clients are out of town.

Some things our clients say about us:

  • “I highly recommend your service to all my friends who have pets. You have allowed me to travel with confidence that “my kids” are well-cared for.” -Heidi G.
  • “Our pet sitting plans fell through the week before leaving for our wedding, which also happened to be during the eclipse. Despite the late notice and high demand time period, they were able to fit us in. Our sitter was great and sent plenty of pictures of our dog on walks. Definitely will use them again!” – Nick B.
  • “It was wonderful to be relaxed on vacation to not worry about my furbabies. Thanks so much!” – Colleen T.
  • “My cat loves Hot Diggity! I think she wants me to go out of town more often.” – Kris T.

Hot Diggity! works with individuals, local communities, and corporate partners to make the communities they are part of better for all furry and feathered members of the family. For more information on services, please visit: hotdiggitypetsitting.com
