We love animals both big and small and can’t imagine a better or more enjoyable way to spend our time. At Pet Patrol, we enjoy giving pets an opportunity to play, have some fun and explore their world - be it their living room, their backyard or their neighborhood!
For all new Pet Patrol clients the initial consultation is free of charge and usually lasts about 30 minutes. During this time we will meet with you in your home and review our new client welcome packet. This gives us an opportunity to meet you and your pets, go over their pet care and/or dog walking routine and answer any questions that you may have.
When you choose Pet Patrol to walk your dog, you are choosing a personalized walk and/or playtime designed just for them. Your dog will be walked in the comfort of their own neighborhood or nearby park. Or, if a walk doesn't suit you or your dog's needs, a good play session in the privacy and security of your yard can please any dog. We can also accommodate your older dog with a more relaxed visit including a more leisurely stroll around the block or through the backyard and some TLC. And of course, all visits include cleaning up after your dog once they have taken care of their business.

The team at Pet Patrol is like Wolfie's second family. They're always so happy to see them and I get texts while I'm away to let me know he's doing just fine. It puts my mind at ease when I have to leave him because I know he's in such wonderful, loving and capable hands. I can't sing their praises enough. Rachel and her crew are the best! Wolfie thanks you too.

Pet Patrol takes the time to really get to know your pet and his/her routines. This means you come home to a super happy pet. Best pet sitting service we’ve ever used!

It is impossible to overstate the role Pet Patrol Inc. has played in our lives and the lives of our pets since 1999. Over the many years of having our four dogs, Rachel and Maureen have provided (and continue to provide) professional, reliable and compassionate dog walking and sitting services. They have educated us wisely and counseled us gently. Rachel and Maureen are a part of our family. Without exception, their every intention is to meet our needs and wants as pet owners.
Laura and Steve Cline
We first learned of Pet Patrol in 2007, and have used them exclusively ever since. We never have to board our cat or worry about his care. Rachel and company even send reassuring photos and updates while we are away. They offer reliable, friendly, professional, affordable and personal service. Most of all, they know and love animals as this handsome guy will attest. We highly recommend Pet Patrol to anyone seeking in-home quality pet care.
Anne and Owen Rouse
Our dog walker, Betsy, delivers exceptional care, patience, exercise and conscientious fun on a consistent basis. A tired dog is a happy dog.

Maureen and Rachel from Pet Patrol are very dependable and loving. Benson and Mia love their visits. Their visits bring peace of mind to us, as we know our pets are well cared for during our long work days.

I don't know what we would do without Rachel's TLC with our furry "children!" She is so professional and organized, loving, friendly and ultra caring, and our dogs truly adore her. I witnessed their behavior when she and I crossed paths one day unexpectedly and they were completely overjoyed to see her, so I know how well she is looking after them in my absence: true peace of mind for us "parents." Thank you SO much Rachel and crew.

We have been satisfied Pet Patrol customers for over six years and recommend Pet Patrol every chance we get. Having Pet Patrol each day allows us to have a normal work schedule without feeling guilty about the dogs all day. We feel very comfortable with Pet Patrol in our house each day, and even more comfortable with them taking care of our dogs. Pet Patrol has been available for weekend sitting that allows our dogs to avoid kennel stays. Pat Patrol has been happy to help out with medication or any special care that is required. The dogs think of Pet Patrol as part of our family.
Pet Patrol is great. Cassie loves when Maureen comes and spends time with her.
The Byrne Family
Rachel has been caring for our pets for almost a decade. I always come home to happy animals and a detailed report. I’m so grateful to have such a trustworthy and loving person available to take care of them when I can’t.
Joan and Jon Schochor
Our Tonkinese family members never "miss a beat" when we travel thanks to Betsy, who we literally trust with our lives. Thank you, Pet Patrol, for providing the FINEST "babysitting" available!

Cubby and Maggie
It gives us peace of mind to know that Cubby and Maggie have someone to care for them during the day. Our dog walker, Maureen, always keeps an eye out for our fur babies. She writes notes to communicate concerns, too. She is reliable, professional and someone we would recommend (and have recommended). And, when Maureen has been on vacation, Betsy and Flannery have also been wonderful. We love Pet Patrol!
Inna and Alex
Pet Patrol has been a lifesaver! Maureen has been there for us for about four years now. She is flexible, kind and LOVES our Max. Not sure what we would have done without her over the years!

Gabe and Chrissy
I have never had a better pet sitter than Maureen and Pet Patrol! My dog has health issues and is very spoiled. Maureen treats my Gabe like he was her own! Love them!
Johnny Bear and Cocoa
We are so happy with the service that Betsy provides for our two dogs! It is such a peace of mind knowing that our two fur babies are cared for and loved while we are out of town. Our dog Johnny Bear is blind and he used to have so much anxiety when we would have to take him to the kennel – it wasn’t even worth it to go away. Now we know that both dogs are curled up on the sofa in their own home! Pet Patrol is awesome and Betsy ROCKS!
My experience with Pet Patrol has been excellent. As a senior citizen, I have needed and benefitted immensely from your services.
Rafiki, Becka and Maddie
Pet Patrol is a lifesaver! Since we travel often, the dog sitting service gives us such great piece of mind that our dogs are well-cared for and able to be in their own home environment. Betsy is awesome with them and very reliable. We couldn’t imagine our lives without her and the wonderful staff at Pet Patrol.
Betsy moved to Baltimore in 2010 and joined the Pet Patrol family a few months later in early 2011. She brought with her a bundle of energy that can transform anyone's bad mood! She offers a unique style of dog walking to Pet Patrol - featuring traveling doggie play dates! When she's not carpooling pooches around town or taking care of some fabulous felines, Betsy can be found spending time with her friends and family - including her rescue dog, Spec. She enjoys living life to its fullest including travel, seeing live music performances and staying active.
Pet Patrol was founded by Rachel, a Baltimore native who has lived here her entire life. As a recent college graduate and newlywed, in January of 1999 Rachel found herself at a crossroads. While she was truly enjoying her job working for a non-profit, she felt a strong need to do something more. So Rachel pitched the idea of a pet sitting and dog walking business to her husband, Joe. A few months and tons of research later, she started Pet Patrol in June of 1999. As they say…the rest is history! Fast forward to present day and you can find Rachel keeping busy with her family - Joe and their daughters, Ella and Kathryn. They all enjoy spending time with their five rescue pets - mixed breed dog Lola, Maine Coon mix cat Joe Cool, Tortoiseshell cats Kit Kat and Autumn as well as Gandalf, a once-feral now-lovebug, senior cat rescued off of their street.
