"Our dogs provide us unconditional love and companionship. They deserve the same."

Since 2016, Josh Fisher, my partner, and myself have been loyally serving the pet parents of Pennsylvania’s Pittsburgh metro area. I have always had a passion for animals — especially dogs — both caring for and learning about. I have volunteered at several animals shelters throughout my life, worked in the veterinary field, and am now founder of the Northern Mile; a locally-based, family owned, pet caring business – and I couldn’t be happier! My husband and I both share a love for animals and are always striving to achieve excellence with our service.

Here at the Northern Mile, we are not just watching over dogs; we are caring for family members who have different routines, likes, dislikes, individual personalities and styles of communication. Our aim is to care for your dog in the same way that you would – with love, compassion, and enthusiasm! We respect and admire your relationship with your dog, and want to strengthen your bond by providing your dog with the highest level of care!

Our business model focuses on modernizing the pet sitting industry. That’s why we have created an online booking portal where you can book online, view/cancel your appointments, and make payments directly on our web site! We want to combine the convenience of the internet with top-notch care for your pet.

We’re so grateful to have the opportunity to share our love of animals with our fellow pet parents and to serve the Pittsburgh area. We’re always looking to give back to our community and the animals who reside here by volunteering, providing donations, and, of course, caring for them! We enjoy meeting new dogs, and will always welcome any newcomers into the pack for some fun and adventure! We hope to get the chance to meet you and your lovely dog soon!
