The Fido Group’s core purpose is to meet the pet care needs of busy families with demanding work obligations and other responsibilities. The word “Group” in our business name is both a nod to our many attorney clients and a reference to our trademark service, the Group Dog Walk.

Why Our Clients Rely on Us

Families in the Upper Northwest community are familiar with The Fido Group because they often see our owner walking small groups of dogs in the neighborhood. Our dependable, professional service allows owners to take comfort in knowing their pet is well cared for and getting the exercise and socialization they need. Our clients consistently trust us to safely manage the livelihood of their pets, the keys to their homes, and their confidential information.

Who Our Services Are For

One in 12 DC residents is an attorney, according to the American Bar Association and the U.S. Census Bureau. Long hours, countless meetings, and stress characterize the life of a DC working professional, which is why we created a spin on the traditional law firm to provide pet care services. 

We serve two of the busy pet owner’s most pressing needs:

My Dog Needs Consistency

You have a busy work schedule and a bustling family life. Although you yearn to give your dog good walks and social outlets on a consistent basis, you simply don’t have the time. It’s also important to you that your pet have the opportunity to socialize with other animals. We offer:

  • Flexible times to work around your schedule
  • Around-the-clock service—24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year
  • A modern client portal for scheduling and other requests
  • An end to your search for a reliable, trained dog walker

My Dog Needs Companionship

Our service has been proven to work wonders for lonely pets who need more socialization and exercise. If your dog has had little to no exposure to other dogs, the Group Dog Walk is the perfect opportunity for them to learn to play well with others. Other benefits include:

  • Small groups of dogs for prime socialization opportunities
  • Closely monitored interactions to ensure safety
  • No minimum booking requirement to use our services
  • Flexible scheduling

Our Trademark Service

As “Your Partner in Pets,” we help our clients save time with their dogs. Whether it’s the portion of the day you spend walking the dog yourself or the hours per week you spend at the dog park, we’re here to help lighten the load.

Group Dog Walking

During the Group Dog Walk, your dog walks on-leash with 2-4 additional dogs in a safe neighborhood setting in the District. With safety as our top priority, due diligence is necessary. Therefore, our extensive onboarding process includes an application, a meet & greet session to get to know you and your dog, and “Fido’s exam,” which includes trial walks and a temperament test.

Group 43

Puppy Play

Our free group socialization course for puppies is designed to expose your young pets to new sights, sounds, and people.
