Our Approach

We have a strong passion for animals well being – including us humans. Being one of the first in Ohio to send picture messages for client experience, our communication has been key to client satisfaction and no hassle service. The visits and updates break up the day and provide stress free relief for both you and your pets.

Our Story

Our vision started in 2008. Our deep appreciation for nature and people our business philosophy was aimed solely around helping service the needs of pet parents and individual situations with reasonable rates and timely service. We realize that everyone’s dogs were different because of their age and energy levels, and with todays busy world some clients would just need a break for their companion during the day to free up time to attend to other responsibilities.

We’ve always placed our clients needs first…no false sales, just everyday value created by staying in a small service area. Founded in Strongsville Ohio in a recession, we knew we had to develop a better approach including a more cost effective way to operate a business. By consistently doing that Dog Gone It has been able to climb to one of the top in home care providers in Cuyahoga County.
