Welcome to The Well Heeled Dog, a professional dog walking service established in 1999 to serve the needs of dog owners throughout the downtown neighborhoods of Chelsea, West VillageGreenwich Village and Tribeca.

We are not an app-based service designed in Silicon Valley. We are a New York City dog walking company with a commitment to the downtown NYC dog owning community. Now entering our 20th year, we are one of the longest running owner operated dog walking services in downtown Manhattan.

As a small, personalized pet care service, we have remained committed to providing the most professional, attentive service available. We take great care in providing a consistent walker for your dog which enables us to develop a deeper connection with your pet and better communication with you. Many of our dogs have been with us from puppyhood through their golden years and people often tell us that the dogs we walk look like our own!

We feel strongly about walking dogs individually or in pairs. Two hands, two dogs. In this way, we are able to maintain leash etiquette and basic training and focus on the specific needs of your dog by pairing up with a buddy of similar temperament and exercise requirements. Puppies get the attention and structure they require, older dogs are able to walk at their own pace, and the adolescents and younger adults get the benefit of a brisk walk and socialization. With our dedicated team of knowledgeable and experienced dog walkers, you can be assured that your dog is well heeled and properly cared for.

We are bonded and insured and CPR and First Aid certified.
