About Us!

Thank you for your interest in Walk This Way Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Services.  Our regular service area in Philadelphia includes Manayunk, Roxborough, Wissahickon,  Andorra and East Falls.

Leaving your animal companion safe at home means finding the right pet sitter. Whether you’re going away on vacation or need daily dog walks, we offer tender loving care and personalized attention for your pets in the comfort of your home. One of our professional and experienced staff members will visit your home to feed, walk and play with your pets. We want every pet owner to leave home with peace of mind, knowing his or her pets and home are in our responsible care.

When allowing animals to keep their daily routines of feeding, walking, medication and individual attention, owners report that their pets experience less stress and adjust better to their owners’ absence. Walk This Way offers the bonus of home security measures by bringing in mail and newspapers, rotating lighted areas, opening and closing draperies and other touches that make the house appear occupied while the owner is away.

Walk this Way is bonded and insured and a member of Pet Sitters International.

ALL Staff are Cat and Dog CPR Certified!!

Meet The Staff:

Sandra (Sandy) Zanetto- Owner


In 1996 I left my law practice to follow my “interest” in the arts.  I have been co-owner of Orbit Gallery in Manayunk for over 18 years.  About 10 years ago, having lived in Bucks County with a goat named “Ricey” and no fewer than 3 dogs and 2 cats, I decided to follow my “heart”  We began Walk This Way with one dog and by word of mouth, hard work and endless hugs and sloppy kisses, we have grown to serve hundreds of the most wonderful “4 legged people” on the planet.  We have been written about in The Star and please check out our many favorable reviews on yelp.  All of this would not be possible without the dedication and love shown by our incredible staff.  Below you will get to know them and their stories. Thanks, as always, for your interest in Walk This Way.

 Dara Schneider – Billing Manager

My name is Dara Schneider and I have been working for Walk This Way since 2005.  I started out as a dog walker/pet sitter which I absolutely loved doing.  Later in 2005, I became the office manager and enjoy that just as much since I am able to interact with the clients and staff on a daily basis. As a child, my house was always full of animals.  I have experience caring for dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, turtles, frogs, lizards and birds.  I also have experience with horses as I was always visiting my Uncle at his horse farm in Horsham, PA.  I currently live in South Jersey and take care of Walk This Way from my home office.  I have two beautiful children, 13yo Justin and 7yo Ava and an adorable furry son, Min Pin, Mr. Mojo!

Faith Cambridge – Walker, Scheduling Manager

Hello, my name is Faith Cambridge, I have been with walk this way since January 2013. I absolutely love my job. I am a walker for Walk This Way, and I also manage the company’s schedule, website and Instagram. I was born and raised in Roxborough and I currently live in east falls with my husband and two year old daughter. I have the best of both worlds working partially with both the clients and the animals. I find my job both satisfying and very rewarding. I have plenty of experience with animals. I attended W.B Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences, I worked at the Mt. Airy animal hospital, and I grew up with pets of my own. I currently have a dog named Bella and a cat named Skittles. They are my world! I love my fellow walkers and I adore my boss Sandy. I couldn’t be happier waking up because I am doing what I love to do:)

Nicole- Walker


My name is Nicole and I started working at Walk This Way in June of 2015. My love for animals began at a very young age when my parents surprised my sisters and I with a new puppy on Christmas morning. At that moment, I knew that I would never walk alone :). I see my time here at Walk This Way as more of a hobby than a job. I love every minute I have with these pets and give as much love and care to them as I do my own. When I am not working, I love going to the gym, being active, and taking my dog on special trips and adventures! I am certainly at my happiest when I am around animals and look forward to meeting new furry friends every day!

Sueann- Walker   Since I grew up with dogs & cats, I knew they’d always be a part of my life. My dog Sydney & my cat Zeke make me smile every day. I was happy to be of help to the cat rescue group I was involved with for years, since I rescued a litter of kittens who were left by their momat just a few weeks old. Before joining walk this way I lived on a 56 acre farm where there were deer, fox, turtles & many forms of wildlife… plus my own dogs & cats& my pet-sitting visitors. After working as a Paralegal for many years it makes me appreciate being a dog walker that much more. I love the welcome I get with licks & kisses and having fun walking and playing with your 4 legged family member.

Michelle- walker

Hi, I’m Michelle and every since I was young, I have loved and respected animals. I am happily drawn to their playfulness, unique characters and open spirits. There has always been some type of animal where I lived, whether my own or a friends’, and I have owed and cared for diabetic cats and cats needing medication. Caring for them is hardly work when they bring me such joy and laughter.

Eric- Walker

“Lover of all animals, dogs especially. I take great pride in making our furry family happy, healthy and content. Also, I’m a fairly decent photographer, Manayunk‘s official Santa Paws photographer.”

Danielle – Walker

Hi , I’m Danielle. I’ve been with Walk This Way since August 2017 and also work as a photographer. I’m a Roxborough native but have lived many places. The animals have always outnumbered the people in my house but it’s currently evened out with just my three rescue dogs: Lindsey the Lab, Huey the St. Bernard and Daisy the Border Collie.

Maggie – Walker My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion!  Today I am a proud pet Mom to a Chow Chow, Sasha and 4 kitties, Barrell, Zero, Crookshanks and Cinnamon. They are my heart and soul and have me wrapped around their little paws.Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their precious pets in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their pets as I would my own. Spending my days with cats and dogs is the ultimate job. Kinda hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist wags and purrs, wet kisses and lap naps? Certainly not me!  I am also a proud Mom to a little boy, Aaron and am a Realtor in PA.  In my spare time, I love to take my son and my pup on walks through the park, we love camping and spending time outdoors!

Brittney- Walker

I have been a veterinary technician for over 7 years now. I’ve also been a pet sitter for many families in the area for 5 years. I have my own furry family at home- 3 cats and an 8 year old American Bulldog mix.

Jasmine Kent- Walker

My name is Jasmine Kent and I started walking for Walk This Way in March 2019.  I’m a life long animal lover! I have always had pet cats, and I was the child that was always bringing home lost/stray animals, from abandoned pitbulls to injured squirrels, for much needed love and care. It is natural for me to be with, understand and care for animals so working with your pets will be my heart felt pleasure. 

Faith C- Walker

Hi, I’m Faith. Pictured with me is Bella, my chihuahua. I’ve always loved animals. As a kid we always had cats and dogs. I was always trying to bring home strays. Sometimes I was allowed to keep them, other times I found homes for them. This is by far the funnest job I’ve ever had. I’ve always worked in an office environment. This is a refreshing change. I enjoy caring for and walking pets. They brighten up my day.


Hello! My name is Julie & I have been a walker with WTW since October of 2018. There’s nothing like meeting a nervous puppy on the first day, & seeing that dog become more & more comfortable & happy to see you over time. It warms my heart. 
I currently have a labrador/retriever, & he is the love of my life!! I have a huge passion for animals, I wonder how we even deserve them!
