-Owner & Founder
Adam Tracey has been around animals his whole life. Since childhood, he has taken care of numerous pets: dogs, cats, birds, fish, snakes, lizards, rabbits, hermit crabs, turtles, gerbils, guinea pigs, and more. You name it, he's owned it. And ever since he was a kid, he was the neighborhood dog walker and pet sitter. When someone went on vacation or couldn't make it home that day, he/she would call Adam who would gladly care for that person's pet.
So, while riding his bicycle caring for the neighbors' pets as a child, Adam thought that one day he could devote his life and career to doing the same. Here we are many years later and his dream has come true. After getting his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, he then received his MBA from St. Joseph's University with the hopes of running his own company some day...not just any company, something for which he has tremendous passion. Pooch Patrol is that passion! He began in February 2013 and has loved every minute of it since.
Adam currently owns a 8 year-old female boxer named Chloe. This is his third boxer. Heidi was the family pet when he was a young child. She was fiercely protective of Adam. Nikki was a birthday gift as a teenager and his best friend. He brought her everywhere: baseball games, the beach, friends' houses, or just down the street to Wawa to grab a hoagie. Wherever Adam was, so was Nikki. The same is true today with Chloe. Adam got her at eight weeks and trained her from day one. She's a devoted and loving pet. Chloe loves her walks at Valley Forge Park, days at the Oaks dog park, and softball games where she runs with other players' dogs. No dog is more spoiled and taken care of than Chloe.
Adam and his staff at Pooch Patrol will take care of clients' pets as if they were their own. Every pet will get the "Chloe treatment."
Dave hails from a small town in Central Pennsylvania where he grew up
working on farms, which he attributes to his love for animals. Dogs are an
obvious favorite for Dave but there's no animal too big or too small for his affection!
Because of his proximity to farms and the animals he frequently visited, his
pet care started at an early age and he became the go-to guy for both friends and family with pets.
Dave has spent three years working in pet care professionally in the Philadelphia area. He has been working for Pooch Patrol since late 2016 and has excelled in his professionalism, his reliability, and his incredible care for all clients. Dave is certified in Dog Training and has helped many Pooch Patrol Clients with basic commands and leash training.
Dave is Pooch Patrol's "Field Manager". He deals a lot with scheduling, meeting new clients, and is a social media guru!
