Did you know that more than half of all households have at least one pet? If you or a parent live in Miami (Downtown Miami to Cutler Bay) - and have a pet, then you’ll be happy to learn about Equipaws Pet Services. Flavia and Frankie Berti offer a vast array of services that include professional pet sitting, dog walking and running, and boarding while you’re out of town, either your own home or in a setting just like it. They also provide transportation services to the vet, petstore. or groomer.

One of the things I like most about them and why I'm so thrilled to welcome them to our network of service providers, is that they take the care and safety of ours pets as seriously and as lovingingly as we do—they know our pets are members of our family. Equally so--- they treat the safety and care of their clients with the highest priority. They conduct backgrounds checks and spend time getting to know all their employees.

Their services fill a huge need. The one thing that we can always count as we and/or our parents age is that unplanned events, appointments, and challenges occur without warning. And when these events take place, our dogs still must get out  to do their business and get their exercise. Flavia and Frankie to the rescue.

The process is easyy: you simply a schedule an in-home interview—where they can introduce themselves to you and your pet and learn where you keep the pet supplies, and other particiulars about your pet. That way when you have the need for their services, you simply have to call. It’s requires very little planning ahead. Your pet will welcome them with purrs and licks. 

They're very active on Facebook and Instagram—so when you’re not with your dog---you can still see them--- and witness, first-hand all the fun they’re having. For full disclosure---I use Equipaws services for my own dog for whom nothing is too good! It gives me the peace of mind I need when I am at a comference or out of town--- I love viewing the photos of him that they post. It's the next best thing to being there.

To learn more about their services, you can view their listing in our directory, visit their website- or follow them on Facebook or Instagram—You’ll be glad you did! You won’t be able to help but smile!
