Fur Coat and Pants was founded in 2009 to provide the best pet care to dog owners in New York City. We love our dogs, and the heart of our business comes from supporting a team of walkers who care about the dogs we walk as much as we do. To achieve this, we have developed a rigorous system of vetting, training and fair wage support to a group of amazing professional walkers who will provide the highest level of care for your pet.
Today, Fur Coat and Pants has grown to provide services for pets all over New York City, with the same level of attention and care that has been there from the start. We love our team, and know you and your dog will too!
Fur Coat and Pants founder Leo Bodrie realized the challenges of finding great pet care in New York City when he struggled to arrange regular walking and sitting care he could trust for his Boston terrier, Larry.
From this came an idea in 2009: Create a business that would provide the highest level of quality pet care he wanted for Larry to other dog owners in New York City. Fur Coat and Pants was born. As word of the amazing care and attention FCAP provided spread and the team grew, Leo knew the heart of the business was in finding the right team of walkers who cared about the dogs he walked as much as he did. From this, the FCAP system of vetting, training, certification and fair wage support of a group of amazing professional walkers has continued over the years.
