The best DARN team of pet specialists in Long Beach!

Pet Waggin' Critter Walkin' and Sittin' is a full-service pet care company serving Long Beach and Signal Hill areas. Our founder, Mary Ellen, established Pet Waggin' back in 2006 as a tribute to her family and finding her true passion in life.  And now, she has an amazing local business that serves the amazing pets of Long Beach and their humans! (Read her story here).


 As a business, we are proud of the reputation we have built by being passionate and committed to providing Long Beach with excellent and trusted pet care. We pride ourselves on having caring and dedicated employees who are committed to the individual needs of each and every pet in our care. Whether you need a pet sitter or a dog walker, we have you covered.  We are licensed, bonded, and insured and a proud member of Pet Sitters International. In 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019, we were awarded the Press-Telegram Readers’ Choice Award for Best Pet Sitter in Long Beach, which we are very proud of! We were also awarded Best Dog Walker & Best Pet Sitter in the Long Beach Post! The community of Long Beach is extremely important to us and we strive to continue to be the best pet sitter for all of you!

Our foremost priority is the safety and security of our clients, their pets, and their property. That's why we make sure to carefully screen each of our sitters before starting.  Our staff members are dedicated employees, not contractors. Having our staff work together as a team ensures that clients receive quality consistent care from each member. In addition to the multiple interviews, background checks, and reference checks, we also dedicate a lot of time and resources on training for our staff. And let me tell you, it is SO worth it.
