We do things differently.

ABOUT US.

Learn more about our mission, meet our staff, and check out our recommended businesses!

PetProGo (formerly Doug's Dogs) is not your average pet-care service. Above convenience, it’s relationships. To us, your pet isn’t just a pet, and you’re not just another pet parent. Before we ever take your pet for a walk or look after them while you’re away, we build a relationship with you and your number-one fur friend. Once you and our team feel comfortable with each other,

that’s when we can really start making your life easier.

We pride ourselves on our extensive staff vetting and training, as we only hire the best of the best to care for your pets.

We promise to be Los Angeles's most trusted, reliable, and friendly pet-sitter. It's what you and your best fur friend deserve while you’re at work, on vacation, or in need of extra pet-care assistance.

Jasmine F. (Jazz)
Office Manager

Jasmine, born and raised in Los Angeles, loves all things warm and fuzzy, including all furry friends. She grew up with family pets, loved all kinds of animals and had dreams of becoming a veterinarian, dog walker, marine biologist or zoo keeper or any job that allowed her to work with animals was what she wanted! As she got older, unsure of how to pursue her animal loving dreams, she stumbled down many different paths where she acquired a large variety of skills, mostly based in retail/customer service. She loves interacting with and helping others as best as she can. in 2015, she decided to finally pursue her passion for animals and landed a job with a large nonprofit animal welfare organization. During her 6 years with this team, she learned and experienced so much valuable knowledge, was able to develop her skills of taking care of animals. She joined PetProGo where she can continue to pursue her passion and can inspire her son as he is an animal lover too!

Whitney S.
Pet Pro

Whitney’s love for animals runs deep. Growing up in Southern California, she was raised with a Siberian Husky named Lobo, she horseback rode as a kid, and she always played with whatever critters she could find around the neighborhood.

For the last 10 years she has been loving on her rescue pup named Lux. It was only natural that she would enter the animal world as a professional dog walker and pet sitter back in 2014.
 

In her free time, you can find her hanging at coffee shops, checking out new restaurants, and staying active with her pup. She’s passionate about spirituality and personal development so her focus is always on being a better human from the inside out. Her interest in this area led her to become a certified life coach last year, so now she gets to help humans as well as her animal buddies.


Whitney is ecstatic to be a part of the Petprogo team and can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends!

Hello, local animal lover here! Looking for the opportunity to meet, and care for, your fur babies. I’m comfortable with all breeds and have experience walking the more difficult walkers. I’m also available for pet sitting!
 

I am originally from Michigan, but have recently relocated. I just finished my bachelors program in Fine Art, and plan to pursue my masters degree in the future. I also plan to incorporate my love for animals into my love for art by painting pet portraits.

Pet Pro

Kristina’s unconditional love for animals started at a very young age. Growing up on a farm in New Mexico Kristina was not only surrounded by dogs and cats but also by livestock, chickens and sheep. Unable to deny this love Kristina began working at the local Animal Humane Society as an adoption advisor. She was filled with happiness getting to help homeless pets find their forever home.

 

However, it wasn’t until she rescued her special needs Pittie mix that she knew she was meant to help animals . Eager to help her new pup she joined the Behavior Training department where she received a few different certifications.

 

Since moving to LA Kristina has done everything to continue her education in Canine Behavior, she is now a Certified Positive Reinforcement Trainer and is going back to school to Study Animal Science Behavior/ Nutrition. As a pet parent first and foremost Kristina thrives to provide the best care to her clients as if she were caring for her own, safety is her first priority!

 

In addition to pet sitting for PetProGo Kristina runs her own training business where she helps owners understand and change canine behavior issues.

Doug
Owner & Founder
Founder and Owner of PetProGo Doug with his two dogs in LA park

Doug first discovered his love of animals while growing up in Hawaii. He helped raise a Black Lab mix named Zeus, a Vizsla named Buddy, and a cat named Koniko. The lights of Broadway beckoned and Doug moved to NYC to pursue a career in theatre, earning a B.F.A. from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. While pounding the pavement and auditioning, Doug turned his love of animals into a survival job as a dog walker (there's nothing quite like walking a Great Dane in the big city). After finally making it to Broadway, and after one especially miserable Manhattan winter, Doug made the move to Los Angeles to soak up the sun and started Doug's Dogs in 2013. As business expanded, Doug’s family of happy clients and pets did, too.

 

In 2020, PetProGo was born with the mission to bring together pet parents and the very best pet care professionals. In his 20 years of experience in the pet care industry, Doug has worked with some of the top animal behaviorists, trainers, and veterinarians in the business. He is adept at sourcing the most experienced pet pros, who have committed themselves to treating all animals with care and compassion. He has a Shih-Tzu mix named Steven Tyler, Jr. and they both reside in Burbank, CA!

Word On The Street Is...

“I found Doug through Next-door Silverlake.  He is so professional and accommodating. He and his crew came over several times to hang with my slightly crazy 100 lb dog so that my dog would get used to them before the dog sitting even started.   I left for about a week and my dog was happier than ever. They sent me pictures of him everyday. I'm very picky about who can walk and house sit my pooch but I completely trust Doug. Also, he's the best with last minutes too and he's quick to respond on text or email.  So from this super neurotic dog owner, I say call Doug! He'll calm your nerves so you can actually feel ok about leaving your furry child.”
