How did Serviced China Dog Walking start?
Marion: Well I was helping many foreigners find maids and housing back in 2004. The service became quite big to my amazement and eventually had about 700 maids to outsource at one point. We trained the maids in English and taught them basic things like how to take responsibility when they accidentally broke something instead of hiding it (which was standard practice back then) We had some real loyal clients who became friends and would come over and volunteer time to train the maids and help them to learn English, pay for them to get their teeth fixed. Most of the volunteers were former professionals back home and bored out of their minds without something to do. Mostly, their husbands were expats, CEO’s and the like so the wives had too much time to drink tea, shop. I am also a business woman and like to learn so I really appreciated being around them. One of our volunteers (Jenny) was the wife of the CEO of a major US multinational and she had two lovely golden retrievers. She had to go home early to take care of them so I told her to take them to our office (which was also my house) as we had a good backyard for them. After Jenny brought them to our house the neighbors and local children became very curious and started hanging around, playing with the dogs and it was love at first sight! Soon one of Jenny’s friends brought her dog, much walking ensued and Serviced China Pet Services was born!
What are you doing now?
We are kind of a one-stop-shop for pets now. We found a dog training professional in Shanghai from the UK and have trained puppies: we often sit 5-10 dogs and 20+ cats during Chinese holidays and we walk dogs everyday in Pudong and Puxi. We have tons of friends in the Veterinary business and have tons of information that can be useful to dog and cat owners in China.
What is the pet sitting like overall in China?
Marion: Scary! Unfortunately it’s not so advanced yet. Someone I know left their dog with a non professional local Chinese who personally loved dogs. They didn’t know she had an alcoholic, violent husband and son at home. Obviously the dog was beaten because when they came back from vacation, the dog was damaged mentally and never the same. Cowering all the time, Hiding, Scared. That dog never got better. It’s important for foreigners to realize that China is a country with a very long history but no history of owning pets except for birds and pigeons. Therefore, people simply have no idea what pets need. ie feed them people food, etc. My friend saw people throwing cigarettes to a gorilla in Guangdong zoo and the unfortunate animal hanging upside down and smoking the cigarettes like a human much to the audiences delight. This is animal abuse but no one seemed to know or care including the keepers and thousands of guests in attendance that day. It’s a new field for Chinese and is catching on fast so we are doing all we can to educate and protect pets and animals in China.
What is the future for SC Pet Services?
We are not ambitious. If you have a doggie or kitty that needs walking or sitting, call us! We will put send a pet lover over asap. Some of our dog walkers are foreign and some are Chinese but all are the same with a dog or cat heart!

We are now looking for a space to create China’s first shelter for homeless pets. My friend is saving dogs, cats even cows in Japan near Fukushima. He set up a homeless shelter for pets near Mount Fuji and is advising us here. We are looking for partners for a Rescue & Adoption Center for Dogs Cats Puppies in Shanghai now. If you are interested in this very important work, please contact us. We have some good people on board already and hope to have it up and running by early 2012.
