NORTHERN VIRGINIA'S PREMIER PET CARE COMPANY
Posh Pets is a boutique dog-walking and cat-sitting service that promises to take pet care to the next level with a host of signature concierge services.
From providing chilled water breaks during steamy walks to playing soothing music for anxious cats during visits and hosting “Yappy Hours” for pups, Posh Pets goes the extra mile.
Our animal-loving team promises to create a strong relationship with your pets, while providing 5-Star service to our clients. No two pets are alike, and we personalize each visit, providing peace of mind to pet parents and pampering your furry friends when you’re away.
Our Posh Professionals use a state-of-the-art, GPS-enabled mobile app to check in and out of each service, allowing you to receive a notification each time your walker or sitter completes a visit. You can also track GPS coordinates of your dog’s walk, communicate with your walker or sitter, manage their walking or sitting schedule and pay for your services through the secure (mobile-friendly) customer portal or client app.
PRESIDENT & FOUNDER
Born and raised in Mexico City, Kimberly Richmond had a stellar career in the hospitality industry and founded an international destination wedding company before embarking on a successful pet-hospitality career.
Whenever she traveled however, she hated leaving her “fur babies,” Chase and Scout and struggled to find reliable pet-sitting services for them. This became especially true as they aged and required medication and special diets, however she couldn’t find a company that met her admittedly high expectations for their care.
After a decade of globe-trotting, Kimberly sold her bridal business and, while contemplating her next step, went to work for a dog walking/pet sitting company.
She soon realized that this was her calling and, the rest as they
say …. is history!
Chris spent more than twenty-five years in the hospitality industry before COVID-19 inspired a career change. His extensive experience in management with a foundational background in sales made him a natural to become Posh Pet’s Managing Partner. With a client focused approach, he oversees the day-to-day operations and client development aspects of the business while planning and executing the vision for the growth of the company.
Having grown up in a family that indulged pets with gourmet cooked meals, seasonal bandanas, and over the top special treatment, he embodies how passionate people are about their pets. He strives to ensure that each Posh Pet is given the same pampering by our Posh Professionals that they would get from their loving pet parents.
When he's not caring for his four legged friends, Chris enjoys landscape photography, cooking, and listening to records from his collection of vinyl.
Bri is a student intern who loves to play, walk, and snuggle doggos. She walks for her mental health as well as theirs, and loves to give their owners peace of mind throughout the work day that their best friend is getting boops and belly rubs while they're absent. She's so excited to get to know your furry friend!
Erin has always felt at home with animals. At Posh Pets, she brings the desire to go that extra mile when caring for your pets in order to make them feel safe and loved.
When she’s not dog walking, you can find Erin writing or playing the NYT daily crossword.
Kody is a D.C. native having grown up in a local suburb with all types of pets from dogs to hamsters, lizards, and even a ferret. Kody is currently a research consultant as well as a grad student studying Artificial Intelligence and Entrepreneurship. In his spare time he loves to exercise, play sports, cook, and hang out with his four legged friends in the North Arlington neighborhoods.
Alan has always been drawn to animals. Whether it is working on a farm or for a doggy daycare, caring for them is a passion of his. Having grown up in Texas with more than three dogs in his home at all times, he comes by it naturally. When he's not spending time with a beloved pet, he's likely rooting for Texas A&M.
Lindsey is an animal lover to the core, growing up with dogs, guinea pigs, birds, and fish. Being around animals brings her tremendous joy and comfort, and she strives to ensure her presence does the same for them. When she isn't out walking fur babies, she is focused on her career as an actor and model. Some of her favorite things are sour candy, red wine, chocolate, sitcom reruns, and of course her rescue pup, Ajax!
Sarah is a pet-lover from Falls Church. She enjoys caring for animals of all sorts, as well as people, and thus has worked as a teacher, caretaker, tutor, camp counselor, and wedding pianist. In her free time she likes to steal the affections of her friends’ pets and play musical instruments.
Mason is originally from Colorado and moved to the DC area in 2018. Since moving away from her parents and their dog, she craves some fur-therapy time.

Mehtap grew up in Arlington and currently resides in the Falls Church area where she has been a pet sitter on and off since high school. Her love of animals started at a young age as she'd spend her childhood summers with birds, cats, dogs, cows, sheep, goats, and horses on her grandparent's farm in Northeast Turkey. She is currently in a career transition and while she's not studying or preparing for a certification exam, she is walking, playing, and taking lots of fun pictures of our furry friends.
