Hot Diggity! was born of a belief that pet lovers should have access to competent and caring pet care services, so one never faces sacrificing pet parenthood to maintain other aspects of life’s commitments like career, family, travel or educational pursuits.
With the founding of Hot Diggity! in 2001 in Portland, Oregon, we set out to create a company that would professionalize the pet care industry. From the beginning, Hot Diggity! was designed intentionally, and was built to last. We knew the only way to create our vision was through a marriage of structure and compassion, so we developed a company driven by values of kindness, dependability, honesty, love and care, while structuring its operations in a scaffold of rigorous processes, clear expectations, experienced staff, transparent communications, and easy-to-understand service types, rates, and billing practices.
As time moves ever onward, and our company continues to grow, so too does technology progress, the needs of our clients shift, and the economics and demographics of our beloved city change. As is necessary, Hot Diggity! strives to adjust our processes, fine-tune staff training and hiring methodologies, and expand our menu of services from more than just the traditional dog walking and pet sitting, while honoring the core Mission, Vision, and Values we set forth to achieve more than 16 years ago.
Hot Diggity! believes everyone deserves the love of a pet. We believe in treating our clients as we would treat ourselves, our friends, and our family. We believe our team of dog walkers and pet sitters is the best in the business and strive to uphold a safe, respectful, fun, desirable place to work. Finally, we believe every action we take as pet care providers and support staff has the power to create ripples through the world for our clients–human or animal–that allows room for grace, prosperity, love, and happiness.
