Our Committed Five Points of Service

FOCUS & DEDICATED ATTENTION - We don't do pack walks! We NEVER walk more than three dogs at a time, and then only when appropriate. We always arrive on time in professional dress. We instruct our walkers to use their cell phones only in cases of emergency, never while walking or caring for your pet. We want your dog to enjoy their time with us in the safest environment possible.

TRAINING & SECURITY - Our DDM walkers and pet service providers are extensively trained in pet first-aid and CPR, as well as fully insured and bonded through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC. Our scheduling system also records the time when walkers arrive and leave your house, so you can always trust that your home is secure and your pet's needs are met on time, every time.

LOVING CARE - We Are Animal Lovers Most of All!!! We give your pet the love, attention and care that they deserve when you are unable to! Additionally, we donate 5% of our profits to the Humane Society of Greater Miami.

CONVENIENCE & AVAILABILITY - We offer dog-walking and pet-sitting service 365 days a year, and we do our best to accommodate any last minute requests or schedule changes.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION & PEACE OF MIND - Our clients' satisfaction is paramount. Our top priority is to deliver the highest possible level of service – for you and your pet. You can be sure that you will always receive an email response or phone call in a timely, professional and friendly manner. We are easy to reach and always happy to address any questions, requests or concerns. Rest assured that DDM's goal is to offer our customers the peace of mind of knowing their pets are being taken care of by dedicated, knowledgeable and loving care-givers, wholly focused on the health, happiness and well-being of your pet.

Meet the Pack

Luis Garcia

I'm born and raised in Miami and have always had dogs in my household. Throughout my years in high-school I volunteered at the local animal shelter and that's where my passion for animals really took off.

I'm very thankful for Downtown Dogs Miami taking my passion for animals to the next level. I can't wait to take care of your furry kids as if they were my own.

Summer Ross

My name is Summer Ross and I am a dog walker and pet sitter in the Miami area. I moved here 2 years ago from North Carolina where I spent a lot of my time on my grandparent’s farm interacting with all types of animals and also dog sitting for family, friends, and neighbors.

Interacting with different types of animals has allowed me to have a lot of hands on experience. I am currently enrolled at Barry University in their Pre-Vet program where I am gaining even more experience and fulfilling my passion for helping animals.

I love being outside and would enjoy taking them to the park near my house or even just walking around town. While dog walking and pet sitting, I treat every dog or cat like he or she is my own. I give them a lot of love and attention, so when you come home they are very happy.

Justine Russo

Hi, my name is Justine, and my passion for animals, especially dogs, started from birth. I was born and raised in New Hampshire where my family had two chocolate labs, one that greeted me home from the hospital. Growing up with dogs taught me a lot of responsibility, compassion, and how to love unconditionally.

I’ve lived in Miami for two years now and have a dog of my own, a beagle mix named Bradi, that I have an undeniable bond with. She is number 1, so I understand the needs and wants that pets have. I have experience with all sizes and types of dogs, as well as other animals. Dogs have a way up making you smile no matter what kind of mood you are in, and I look forward to meeting yours.

Alicia Tonjuk

My name is Alicia Tonjuk and I moved to Miami from Ozark, Missouri. I have had a strong love for animals since I was little. I grew up in the country, so I grew used to being around all different types of animals. My passion and love was Sandy, she was my first Cocker Spaniel. We had an unbreakable bond.

Since Sandy, I have had a variety of different dogs. I have a true passion for caring for animals and making them happy.

Jaci Cormier

I'm originally from upstate NY and grew up on a farm with a few different breeds of dogs, a Border Collie, a Dalmatian, and a Black Lab. As a child I always had a passion for animals of all kinds. Now living in Miami, I have a cat by the name of Simba. He's truly awesome, always making me laugh and smile.

I love caring for pets because they all are unique and have their own genuine personalities. Animals have a special ability to turn any bad day into the best day and I look forward to caring for yours!

Edith Aular

Hi, I’m Edith! I was born and raised in Miami, but with a Venezuelan background. During my childhood I always wanted a dog of my own, so I taught myself how to care for animals. My first dog was a Schnauzer I was ready to provide the love and attention he deserved.

I currently live with a big white Labrador and a puppy Poodle, so I have experience in handling all kinds of dogs regardless of their size and age. I'm available to walk your babies at any time of the day.
