Petropolis is a family owned and run business that was started in 2006, by myself, Patti Perry. Petropolis was begun out of my insatiable love for animals. All of my best friends have wet noses, and you can never have too many of those! What sets Petropolis apart from the other Dog Walking businesses, is that I will be doing your consultation visit and I will be providing you your dog walking/pet sitting services. You will never wonder who will be caring for your animals. The reason I started this business was to be with and care for animals, that's where my heart is, that's where the rewards of this business are and that's where you will find me!

I wish to bring you and your pets the highest level of dependability and quality relationships. These relationships will strengthen as your pet sitter will remain the same visit after visit. The bonds that are established between pet and sitter is of true importance to Petropolis.

I look forward to continuing our relationships with all our current clients and hope to meet many more!

On March 5, 2009, I lost my beloved 6 year old Shar Pei, Winston, to Hemangiosarcoma. After talking to many friends and clients, I was astonished to hear how many dogs just in my inner circle had been a victim of Canine Cancer. I spent many hours researching and looking for someway to remember Winston  and raise awareness about this horrible disease that affects everyone, including our pets.

"The passion that moves us forward is from
experiencing what Cancer really does to the one's we love.
We are driven because there is a hole in our soul
where once was the love of our dog." Gary D. Nice

I am now the DC Chapter Coordinator for the National Canine Cancer Foundation.  I am extremely excited to begin working here in our own community towards a cure for Canine Cancer. I will be participating in local events as well as hosting our own fundraisers to heighten awareness of Canine Cancer and to raise money for the cure!
