About Kevin Pelletier

After 20 years in the professional photo, printing and book-making industry, I decided to change careers and devote myself to my true passion...ANIMALS! I grew up with dogs, bunnies, birds, horses and whatever else seemed to find its way into my home. I’ve aquired a true affinity for our furry friends.

Five years of experience running HIGH5! Pet Service and I am just as dedicated to our pawed pals as ever.

This love and devotion will become a part of my interaction with your beloved family member. I don’t see your pet as just a customer but as an extension of my furry family!

“Kevin looked after our spirited German Shepherd while we were out of town and I can tell you that my mind was at ease knowing that she was in Kevin’s good care.

Our dog can be a handful but not for Kevin. He has a genuine understanding of what a dog needs, whether it is some play time or a little down time. Kola was responsive to Kevin’s gentle, yet firm commands, which I witnessed during our meet and greet the night before we left on our trip.

Kola loves to play so she really enjoyed her outings with Kevin to the dog park where she was able to get some good ball chasing in. Kevin sent “Kola updates” throughout the weekend with photos and texts which allowed us to rest easy and enjoy our getaway guilt free! I recommend Kevin 100% for all your pet needs, whether it is a daily walk for the pooch or a weekend boarding. We will be repeat customers for many years to come. Thank you HIGH5! Pet Service!”

“I can’t reccommend Kevin enough. I have a highly energetic terrier, Gertie, who really needs to burn off energy, and when Kevin has walked her I can tell that she has had a work out! I also know because he sends awesome photos and texts of the fun they had during the day (plus, the much needed ‘elimination’ information). You can tell he has solid years of experience handling and being around dogs. He knows what to do.”

“Kevin is the best dog walker in the Ballard area—paws down!! He genuinely cares about each of the dogs and it shows. He also pays a lot of attention to the safety of the dogs which was really important to us. Plus, our dog LOVES him and gets incredibly excited when he comes over.

We highly recommend Kevin and HIGH5! Pet Service. I don’t know what we’d do without him—my dog certainly wouldn’t be the same!”

“Kevin Pelletier is Seattle’s very own dog whisperer—it’s true! We were so worried that our dog Sammy would have a tough time adjusting to a new routine in a new place. From the moment Sammy met Kevin he was smiling. And he seemed to be saying: ‘You can take off, this Kevin guy seems pretty awesome.’ Our dog has great instincts!

While away we received photos of Sammy on his daily adventures—epic walks in Golden Gardens, play dates with new dog friends, afternoon naps. He was having a blast! When we came to pick him up he was happy to see us, but not keen to leave. Yes, he really had that much fun. Kevin is the BEST and we highly recommend his service.”
