Your Pet Concierge

Welcome to Woofin’ It! We are a full-service, professional Pet Concierge company providing personal, loving and dedicated care to all dogs & cats headquartered in Frederick, MD. We offer dog walking, pet sitting and cat care.

Your Pets are Our Best Friends Too!

We are professional pet lovers. We make sure the pups are exercised, happy, healthy, and snuggled, while at the same time we are getting our furry fixes in and slobbery kisses for the day. Our Daily Dog Walks are filled with fun and are often the best part of your pet’s day when you’re away!

Carefully Selected, Bonded & Insured

Our team are pet owners, rescuers and committed pet lovers. In addition, they are carefully vetted, then bonded and insured by Pet Care Insurance.  We respect your home, your privacy, and the safety of your property.  Fun, play and building a lasting bond with you and your pets is what makes our work so much fun!

Our First Date Is on Us!

Owner

Dr. Lou Huzella is a lifelong animal lover who was very fortunate to be presented with the opportunity to take over Woofin It from Joanna Price.  His passion for caring for animals led to pursue a career as a veterinarian after serving 20 years in the United State Army as an infantryman and later an army aviator. He has a blended family with his loving wife, Dr. Kinga Huzella, an ophthalmologist, who also loves animals, their five adult children, and their rescue dogs and cats. As a veterinarian he specializes in veterinary pathology, but is also licensed to practice in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina. Dr. Lou routinely practices small animal medicine as a relief veterinarian in the Frederick area and also provides compassionate in-home services for end-of-life care for dogs and cats. He was drawn to this business as a previous client, enjoys the challenges of small business ownership, and looks forward to working with you and his wonderful staff to provide great care for your beloved pets.

Kristina Gincley

Pet Concierge

I was adopted when I was three and my life has led me to do some wonderful things. I got my first dog job when I was 13. I really enjoyed it and have come so far with all my experiences and what it entails. I have learned and grown so much. I’ve been working with animals for 14 years now. I’ve met such amazing people and animals along the way. As a country song goes, “do what you love and call it work.”

JoAnn Frazier

JoAnn Frazier

Pet Concierge

I have had dogs and cats all my life. We have had all kinds of dogs when I was growing up and I even had a horse when we first moved to Frederick, MD. I always took care of the other animals at the stable where I kept my horse. I had worked for 45 years as a Pharmacy IV Tech Specialist, but my real passion has always been taking care of animals. I have been married 40 years to my husband and he is also a huge animal lover. I have never been without a dog. We now have a 17 year old Minature Dachshund named Shorty and a rescue 8 year old Pitbull named Prada who is also deaf. I am retired from my previous job and I am so happy to work with this wonderful team.
