Do you need a “Pet Assistant?”

Creative way to say “dog walker!”

Dog walking is a very important service for many Hoboken residents who have pets and work during the day.

You have to trust your walker (who has access to your home), and ensure that your four-legged friends are getting the exercise and outdoor play-time they need.

I’ve noticed these “Pet Assistant” signs around town – which is most certainly a creative way to package “I’ll take your dog for a walk.” These particular pole advertisements say “5 hours a day 5 days a week 5 dollars an hour.” However, The Pet Assistant website says something completely different – and targets the business towards Jersey City residents. Who knows.

Has anyone used the Pet Assistant? Are fancy services even needed for dogs other than a reliable walker? Do photos, emails and text messages make a service better? Or just clutter your life with more unimportant data?

Phew. Well, I see nature has let loose two of her biggest stinkiest farts in this thread already.

I’d say that one’s success is dependent on one’s performance (like you couldn’t perform well as a dog walker if you’re sitting back and letting your behind grow in an office or in some other lazy job), plus one’s experience and references, not so much a fancy ad. But, I dunno, it’s still kind of cute.

What I don’t dig is that their flyer promises absolutely do not match their website ones. Not good for business or something.

Whoa. Careful there, 17. I think you’ve earned a “small dick”/”never get laid” retort. I hope you don’t get your feelings hurt. I’m also fully expecting a diatribe about the fine-tuned marketing distinctions of the dog-walking “profession.”

Haha…if you were to use the Village Idiot’s logic you would argue that if someone were to buy a dog then all members of the household should immediately quit their jobs and stay home with Fido as he/she grows up. Why would you leave beloved Fido at home by himself while you go to work? Is it the sense of entitlement? Sounds very selfish and subjects the pet to separation anxiety. Did you just buy the dog as an accessory? Real pet owners would raise their pets on their own and simply collect handouts from the government. If that were to happen, then we could fire all the dog walkers because there would be no need for them. Drips with irony doesnt it?
