Our Passion is Pets
Gus Elfving started Pet Peeps in 2006. After working with a few pet care services companies in The District, he decided that there was a need for something slightly different. “It is our mission to bring the best professional in-home pet care services to you. And, we strive to do so at a reasonable rate.”
Pet Peeps Makes House Calls
Pet Peeps goes to your pet. The home, where the pet/client is safest and most comfortable, is where all of our services begin. Most pets do better in the comfort of their own surroundings. Anxiety, trauma, and exposure to illness and injury are all minimized in the pet’s own home. This is especially important with younger and elder pets. It is imperative with pets that are prone to anxiety or with displays of anti-social behavior. Even cats benefit from being looked in on by a human companion as opposed to being left to their own devices. Taking care of each pet in the home is how we begin to provide excellent service.
Top-Notch Service is our Specialty
Pet Peeps continues to deliver top-notch service by focusing on one client at a time. Every single visit is scheduled and conducted individually. Even our dog walks. We may end up walking two dogs together, but not as a matter of course and not unless it’s safe. The benefits of individualized care are clear especially true outside of the home. Pet People’s individualized service is continued when we take the pet outside of the home.
A Testament to our Service …Growing in Tough Economic Times
Our philosophy has been received so well, that Pet Peeps has experienced rapid and sustained growth in rough economic times and an already crowded marketplace. As a result, Gus Elfving has continued to recruit other dedicated and experienced pet care service providers to meet this need.
