Hey 👋🏾 I’m Sydney and this is Zip.
I am a certified dog obedience trainer with over eight years of professional and volunteer animal care experience. I started Zippy Pet Care in 2016 because I wanted to walk with Zip and provide care to dogs in my neighborhood of Edgewater & Andersonville.
When the world stopped in 2020, Zippy Pet Care’s daily walking route unfortunately did too as the world worked from home. Like many other small business owners, I scrambled to pivot and find other work to supplement life during the roughest pandemic months. This spring, I thought I won big when I started a full-time work-from-home desk job. Even though I was home all day with Zip, I was constantly glued to my computer and found it difficult to get away from the needs of the job. I didn’t get the extra time for Zip (and other things) that I was hoping for. As a result, Zip wasn’t getting the exercise or regular enrichment that he needed!
While Covid-19 has turned many of us to stay-at-home workers, our dogs aren’t always the primary benefactors. Sometimes working from home means leaving the house less day-to-day; or making time for non dog-friendly appointments and gatherings. A daily walker provides a healthy routine of exercise, socialization, and stimulation for your pup.
