Dog Walking & Petsitting

We offer private and semi-private walks and play sessions for dogs and visits for cats in Durham, NC currently! We also offer petsitting, can give medications, provide baths, nail trims and more.  

Jordaan has worked professionally with cats, dogs and other small animals for over 18 years! It all started for Jordaan on his family farm in South Africa and since then he has developed skills and extensive experience providing assistance to veterinarians, shelter medicine and services for family pets. Over the years, Jordaan has developed many long-time relationships with families whose dogs he has provided exercise, care and training.

Our services are a great fit for guardians who want their pups to continue to evolve!  If you invested time on basic puppy training and just need a tune-up, have a new puppy with no formal training so far OR have an old dog who needs to learn some new tricks, a series of sessions with Jordaan will reinforce good behavior using Modern/ Reward-Based training and handling.

For more information, or to book dog walking or petsitting sessions, contact us at info@dogevolve.com and we’d be happy to chat about options!


Jordaan is the nicest dog walker and he takes great care of your dog.
Our dog, Desi, has been a lot happier since Jordaan started walking her!

We love dogEvolve! Jordaan put our dog at ease from the first minute he met her and she’s now been going on walks with him for over two years. She always comes back happy and ready for a snooze on the couch (until mealtime, of course). Jordaan sends great pictures of their adventures, and he’s also been super helpful with advice. I can’t recommend their services enough!!

Jordaan has provided incredible care for our 4 cats, 6 chickens and various other critters over a span of 12 years. He has been absolutely reliable, warm, full of insight and most critically—skilled at handling our various challenging needs. He has administered meds, providing grooming and even behavioral advice for our brood. He is a true treasure of knowledge and has an incredible sense of humor as a bonus!
