Celtic Caretaking

414 Light Street, Baltimore, MD

Celtic Caretaking was formed on the combination of one person's two greatest passions: Irish culture and a love of dogs aka Cu in the Emerald Isle's native language. The former provided the brand, the second provided the focus on excellent service for you and your pups.

In ancient irish legends, heroes and heroines put themselves or were sometimes put under geasa-steadfastly held obligations or codes of conduct-that they strove mightily to not break and always abide by. Like them, Celtic Caretaking is under solemn oath to care for your pets and property to the best of my ability for an affordable price.

Celtic Caretaking's slogan is "We treat your Cu like you do." With its core trinity of "C"s, it's underlying philosophy is Consistent, Compassionate, and Competent handling of your animal companions. The man behind the service, Andrew German, has a lifelong love of animals. Decades of experience as a dog owner as well as independent research have gifted him with a deep understanding of how their minds work and how and what their body language communicates. He is in the process of gaining certification as a vet tech from Harford Community College and is certified in both Animal First Aid and CPR and Massage Therapy for Animals. Eventually, Celtic Caretaking will evolve into a full-service animal caretaking company including but not limited to in-home veterinary treatments, "animal taxi" to vet appointments, and at-home grooming.

The services Celtic Caretaking offers range from walks by the distance or by the time(I average a mile in 20 minutes depending on dog's ability), drop in visits with or without potty walks, pet-sitting, both by check-in and overnight stays, and basic command training, using the Victoria Stilwell method of positive reinforcement. Unfortunately, I do not offer pet boarding at this period in time. At the current moment, I operate through Rover, but eventually plan to become licensed as an LLC independent of the two service providers. I have my own comprehensive set of tools for the job, including clickers and treats, whether allergen free, low-calorie green beans, or standard for training, leash with attached waterbowl, poo-bags, water and treat holding bottle, and harnesses in three different sizes and a light-up collar for both late-night walkings and sittings and am insured and bonded through Pet Sitters Associates.

We walk your dog with a dog friend whose company he enjoys and will not walk more than 3 dogs at once. Prefer a private walk? Just say the word. We finish the walk with a text or email update.

We'll also email you a report about your pet. A pet visit lasts 30-45 minutes.

Betsy McDonald, owner and operator of Medfield Dog Walkers, has always had a strong empathy with & love for animals. After moving to Baltimore in 2013, she volunteered as a dog walker for the Maryland SPCA, finding this work so rewarding that she decided to work with animals full-time. She uses her background as a pastry chef to craft healthy treats for dogs & her training as an artist to paint the occasional animal portrait.
