Poochi In The City pet care is derived from identifying with and fulfilling the need to provide premium care for our pets that are condo and apartment residents. According to Atlanta’s very own Jezebel magazine in a recent survey pulled together by top local real estate agents it was learned that
One of the top five valued extras for Atlanta condo and apartment dwellers is pet amenities.
We want to be your furry loved one’s absolute favorite amenity.
I have been in the airline industry for 20 plus years and for 17 of those years I have had 3 dogs Jewels, Jade and Bogie. Although I traveled and was gone away from home for 3 or more days at a time my dogs were very well taken care of in my absence. However, it was quite a challenge. Because I felt that my pooches would do better and be their happiest in their own home or should I say condo I made the decision to rent out a room in exchange for pet sitting. Roommates URGH!! It’s just the fact of sharing your home. All kidding aside my roommates over the years were not all that bad but most importantly they took really good care of my kids and I could be away and have peace of mind which was priceless!
I took a break from flying for several years and when I left I thought that my ideal job or business would be dog grooming. A big difference from my fancy, glamorous job as a stewardess flight attendant. Although I found that I did not have the skill set to be a groomer I stuck around for about a year longer than I should have because it was truly one of the funniest, dirtiest most rewarding jobs I have ever had . I then started pet sitting for several of the grooming clients. And that experience and my love for animals especially my own dogs who are now in Poochi heaven has led me to Poochi In The City. Everyone’s goal after all is to do something that isn’t like a job to them.
We can relate. As you read above recognizing that taking care of your pets is a priority. And it comes at a worthwhile price. Having lived it we know that pets tend to do better in their own environment. And…no sugar coating, you just can’t have just anyone in your home. We have very carefully selected animal loving professionals to enter your home and provide tender loving care to your pets. Each pet care provider is licensed and bonded. And while we are genuinely warm and fuzzy with your four legged family members we are also the consummate professionals while we are in your home. That extends to communicating on your behalf with your concierge, front desk personnel or speaking with your veterinarian, dog groomer etc.
We are always so busy in our lives and sometimes us city dwellers are inappropriately questioned as to why we have dogs when we can’t give them a yard, or why do we have other pets, cats etc. with our busy schedules. The answer is quite simple, these pets are our families and they enrich our lives in so many ways. We manage to make it work. Poochi In The City wants to be a part of your family plan to make it work.
Ok, Ok, enough serious talk. Warning: our site is very tongue in cheek. We are sure that you can agree our pets have such strong personalities. Pets antics out of boredom while we are away and having to rely on sometimes the wrong people can be very entertaining. It’s funny after the fact of course.
With that being said our motto is ………
Whatever happens in Vegas on the dog walk stays on the dog walk.
Our city pooches have plenty of personality with a common trait of being adaptable. Plus they know who needs a dog gone yard when you have Poochi in the City:
Nerdy yet engaging

Reasons Why Your Pet Needs To Be Rewarded With A Mid-Day Walk
As we all know our furry kids can become somewhat mischievous or even rebellious when they become bored.
Take Capone here (A.K.A Mr. Big) when he doesn’t get his midday walk he commits all kind of unspeakable acts.
He lounges around on the furniture that he knows he is not allowed on and becomes in every sense of the word a true “couch potato”.
Because he knows you never met a shoe that you didn’t love he starts lining up your favorites and plays a game of Eeny,meeny,miny,moe.
He goes online and make purchases with YOUR credit card.
He commits what some would say is the ultimate sin…He raids your bar cabinet in search of “the good stuff”.

Leaving Your Pet Unaccompanied Can Lead To A Hefty Room Service Bill

He heads out to see what kind of trouble he can get into.
He checks out the bar and outdoor sitting area in hopes of finding a like minded 4 legged friend.
He ultimately decides to order rounds and rounds of room service.
He is now full as a tick and has truly enjoyed his evening
Even though he is full, he knows that dinner would not be complete without dessert, so he’s waiting for it to be delivered The End
I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!

We all can’t look the same. Or more specifically like Heidi Klum or The Rock. And we all don’t have the same personalities or dispositions. And the same goes for our dogs and cats of the world. Certainly, there are some that have a face and or personality that only a mother or father could love. I call them “an acquired taste”. Sometimes those diamonds in the ruffs just need a little extra TLC or polishing up. And then sometimes it just takes the right person to come along to appreciate their uniqueness. We have decided to highlight a pooch and a cat every 2 weeks from our very own Atlanta Humane Society (Howell Mill campus) that is up for adoption and has been there longer than the others which also can simply be because of their age. Hopefully this will give them a paw up on the competition. Please continue to visit our page with bi-weekly updates to see who we have featured.
